    Oh wow, that is a huge question :) I have been living in Hong Kong for almost 1.5 years and seen most SEA countries, so I hope that I can give you a bit of advise.

    I love the Philippines. Getting there is easy and affordable and food and hotels can be quite cheap as well. I can highly recommend Boracay Island which is a little island with beautiful beaches. It is great for diving and kite surfing.Boracay IslandI have never been but only heard awesome things about El Nido which is even more off the beaten path and a very romantic getaway but it might take some more time to get there.

    If you want to go 50 years back in time, visit Myanmar. My favorite place is Inle Lake as it is still very authentic and local and very relaxing.

    The North of Vietnam is beautiful as well. Combine visiting Hanoi with a trip to the Halong Bay Vietnam. Hanoi is a fascinating blend of an exotic old Asia, a dynamic new Asia and some French flair.

    To escape the hustle and bustle of the city, do a 3 day tour on the Halong Bay.

    Honestly, I could go on and on as SEA has so much to offer but these are my top 3 highlights. If you are into big cities, you definitely shouldn't miss Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.

      Wow! Thank you so much Katharina! That was an incredible wealth of information! All of your recommendations look amazing! Those photos of the Philippines look incredible. We'll definitely check out Boracay Island (especially for diving!) and El Nido. Mayanmar sounds incredible as does Vietnam. We'll definitely be keeping all of these on our list when we start putting together an itinerary. Thanks again for your time! · (0 likelikes)

    The Philippines is amazing. I recently spent five days in Boracay Island. It is the perfect balance of relaxation and fun. Although Boracay is very touristy, there are places to escape the tourism if you want. I stayed on Bulabog Beach which was quieter and more relaxed than the other side of the island. There are lots of windsurfers so it was fun to watch them in the mornings. But keep in mind the beach is very windy because of this. The other side of the island is the beautiful White beach, where all the tourists are - along with many restaurants, shops, and bars. The whole island is quite small so walking from Bulagog beach to White beach is only about ten minutes. There are also motocycle taxis to take you anywhere. The local people are the nicest, most helpful people I've ever met. I will definitely go back to The Philippines one day. Bulabog beach is pictured below (this was the view from the front of my hotel - Levantin Boracay).

    By far the best is Siem Reap! Not only do they have the most amazing temples: Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm Temple, The Bayon but the town/village is so entertaining. The market is huge and has everything you could possibly need: pipes, faucets, souvenirs, Buddha statues! It has a happening night life, with great restaurants and bars along Pub St. You can pay $5 for a fish pedicure or $5 for an hour long foot massage. I was in heaven. Very affordable, and has wonderful, high class hotels for not the much money.
