SEA in late October

Hi ! 

I am just looking for a nice location for a 5 days trip in SEA on late October. I know it is a transition season so not sure where I will get more chance to avoid the rainy eason. I am looking for nice beaches, interesting cultrural background, motorbike trippin', outstanding landscapes. 

Thanks!

    HI Alexandre!

    I think Thailand would be a great choice as there are plenty of nice beaches, and it is rich in culture too.

    Plus, you will get lots of delicious food everywhere. Apart from Bangkok you could also visit a beach town like Hua Hin or fly further down south to Krabi or Phuket for even more stunning beaches and landscapes. Motorbikes and other adventure-based activities would also be available!

    Hello Alexandre! The first thought that immediately popped into my mind is Vietnam. With the four items you listed as important factors in your decision making, I would spend five days between Hue and Hoi An. I think it seamlessly ties together interesting cultural backgrounds in both cities, scenery and motor biking in and around Hue and Hoi An, as well as the beaches of Hoi An. You can also take day trips on motorcycle, around those areas. For what you are looking for, I think it's a great way to spend five days. Hope that helps and safe travels!

    Late October is indeed transition season. I would try my luck in Indonesia.

    Coming to my mind and hopefully fitting all your critirea (or most of them)

    Tana Toraja on Sulawesi. It's great in terms of culture and landscape. For the beach, you would to travel to Bira.

    Gunung Rinjani on Lombok is a classic and can be a good option. Trekking more than biking but you can also explore Lombok on a bike and visit the amazing beaches in the South or spend a couple of days in Gili Trawangan

    Bali is also a good classic option.

    If you are not into Indonesia, try Myanmar you could go to Old Bagan for the temples (2/3 days) and to Ngapali Beach for the beach.

    For more ideas and details you can visit www.tripinasia.com and filter by October and "4 days or more trips". You can also pick themes such as beach or culture.

    Happy travels!

      Great suggestion, Cyril! The Perhentian Islands are on my bucket list! By the way, I've helped you highlight the places in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :) · (0 likelikes)
