Asia Bucket List

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!

Beautiful Wat Pho, Asia Bucket List - La Vie En Marine

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!

 Ride The Star Ferry in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a city of superlatives. Its skyscrapers reach so high into the sky that you will have to risk a rigid neck looking upon them. But one of the best attractions is a ride with the star-ferry to Mainland China. Bring a hat, it tends to get sunny there!

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!

Well, if that’s not a perfect sunrise, I don’t know what is!

Hike The Jungle

During my time abroad I got the chance to hike two incredible tropical jungles and both times it was absolutely amazing and something I would always do again!

The first time was when I was hiking on Koh Rong Sanloem in Cambodia which was very hard and kinda scary, I went for another one just a week later in Taman Negara, the oldest rainforest in the world, which was very jungle-beginner friendly!

Visit the Bund & the Oldest Tea House in China

There are some magnificent skylines in the world. One of them is definitley The Bund in Shanghai. For those who don’t know it is divided by a river and has two sides: one that has the most beautiful colonial buildings and the otherside that is covered in modern buildings that are almost out of this world. Make sure to visit the Bund two times; by day and by night. Don’t miss this please!

Once you are in this particular area take a short walk and go to the Yu Yuan area. This place is simply amazing and holds the oldest tea house in China! If you want to take pictures there, be sure to arrive early, as it is usually super packed.
