Hello and welcome! Traveling Asia was one of the most amazing experiences that I got to have. I lived there for five months and was able to do so many amazing things and it has changed me in a way, that I never thought of. Now I want to share a collection of my favourite adventures, my Asia Bucket List, with you! This list is not complete (and it will never be!) so it might be updated over time as soon as I discover new amazing experiences to share with you!
Have a Drink on Top of The Marina Bay Sands
For many people Singapore is the first stop on their way to South East Asia. I really love this country and enjoyed every second there! For tourists there are plenty of things to do there and nobody will end up being bored. But the one thing that stands out the most is the cities symbol: the Marina Bay Sands. And therefore it was one of my favorite experiences is to have a drink on top of the Marina Bay Sands. The bar that is located there is called Cé La Vi and is open for anyone to spare 20 bucks. This is not nothing but it is worth doing it once in a life time.
Have The Best Satay on The Entire World
Did you know that Singapore is one of the few places where street satay is honored with Michelin stars. And of course, you have to try one of those. If you are not one of those who are into meat, try the veggie edition. Broccoli and bell pepper are just as delicious as those of prawn or chicken!
Have a drink Next to The Petronas Towers
Well, I am spoiled by having seen some of the most impressive roof top bars in the entire world I could say. But no matter how many of them I will visit, my absolute highlight is the Marini’s where you basicalls sit directly next to the Petrona’s Towers. Sounds breathtaking? It is my friend, it really is.

Visit The Temples of Bangkok
Thailand is a beautiful country and in my opinion the one that offers some of the most beautiful temples. And luckily those temples are quite close to each other! The ones that I advise you to visit are Wat Pho & Wat Arun. And it is really something that should be on your Asia Bucket list!
Wat Pho is a giant area with many colourful buildings, one of them the temple of reclining buddha. It will take your breath away. Another extra tip is to visit the massage school of the temple to get a wonderful massage by ongoing massage therapists!
The other temple I recommend is Wat Arun. The temple of the Dawn is so beautiful, it will take your breath away! It is so white and shiny and when it is windy, small bells will ring all the times. It is such a peaceful and serene place I could have spent hours there!
Visit a Rice Terrace in Bali
Another great adventure! Visiting a rice terrace isn’t only a thing in Bali but it is where we did it! It is very interesting and we learned a lot about it. Of course, those of Bali are a bit overcrowded but nevertheless it is an absolute highlight. Another pro tip of mine is to try fresh fruits there like the snake fruit (or Salak)! We really enjoyed sitting there for a while, snacking and having a look above the hills with the rice being cultivated there!
Swim With a Turtle in Malaysia
One of the most amazing things that I did in Asia was swimming with a turtle. These gentle animals are amazing and wonderful. The island where I got close to them is called Pulau Redang and is a paradise itself. Swimming with turtles just completed this whole island experience and up to this day I am so so grateful that I could share this moment.
See The Beauty of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
The Ha Long Bay is legendary. It is a UNESCO world heritage and one of Vietnam’s highlights! In my opinion you should either book a two day, one night cruise or simply settle for a whole day cruise. We went for a whole day and had an amazing time that included kayaking, discovering a cave and buying fruit from a floating market. Such a wonderful experience!
See The Sun Rise in Angkor Wat
Well if you don’t know about Angkor Wat, then I can’t help you anymore. This ancient place is breathtaking and no one should visit Asia, without seeing it. And even if it is hard to pull yourself together, you should get up early to see the sun rise! Make sure to be the first one to get your entrance ticket, so you will see it from the front line!
