1.VANG VIENG (LAOS)

There are are plenty to do here.

When it comes to waterfalls, Luang Prabang is the best in Southeast Asia. Prepare to relax and re-plot your itinerary. Luang Prabang will effortlessly seduce you.
4.MUI NE (VIETNAM)
Once upon a time, Mui Ne was an isolated stretch of sand, but it was too beautiful to be ignored and now, it’s a string of resorts. Facing the South China Sea, its the kite-surfing and wind-surfing paradise.Also discover the ‘Sahara’ of Vietnam. Virtually, everything in here spread along a 10 km stretch of highway.Most accommodation lines the beachfront, while restaurant and shops flank the inland side.
‘Pearl of Orient’ conjures romantic images of trishaw pedaling past Chinese shop-houses or maybe Chinese temples around the corner from grand white mosque sending a call to the midday prayer. But really , whatever you’re are imagining, chances are that Penang is that reality. Add some slick cafes, shopping malls, jungles and a few beaches and you’ll have a clearer picture. Penang is one of Malaysia’s most tolerant, cosmopolitan and exciting particularly when it comes to food.
