Southeast Asia now reopens to travelers. Longing for an exotic vacation? We're ready to make it happen.
There are many wonderful things to do in Southeast Asia, such as relaxing on a beach in Thailand, visiting a temple in Myanmar, taking a boat ride in Vietnam, and trekking through a jungle in Cambodia.
We have rounded up 45 things you need to do, eat, see, shop for, and experience in Southeast Asia. Think something deserves to be on our bucket list? Tell us what we missed!
1. Marvel at Bangkok's Grand Palace, Thailand
If there is one must-see attraction when visiting Bangkok, it is the magnificent Grand Palace, which was once the home to the king of Thailand.
During your visit, don't miss the Emerald Buddha and Reclining Buddha in neighboring Wat Pho. If your time permits, take the river ferry at sunset to see Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn).
One thing to be noted is the dress code when visiting the Grand Palace.
2. Get a Thai Massage, Thailand
When traveling in Thailand, you should enjoy a Thai massage, which is renown around the world. Massage parlors are easily found in each city and small town. You can experience an authentic massage given by a skillful masseur/masseuse at an affordable price.
3. Float in a Floating Market, Thailand
If you are looking for a different shopping and dining experience, plan a trip to one of the country's interesting floating markets, which will give you real insight into local life.
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, within easy reach from Bangkok, is the most famous floating market in Thailand. You can take a boat ride to explore the narrow canals and buy a variety of food, including pad Thai, stir-fry, fresh fruits, and ice cream.

4. Enjoy an Ethical Elephant Experience, Thailand
The elephant is a symbol of Thailand. If you are an animal lover, you can enjoy close contact with elephants in Thailand. In lieu of riding elephants on a safari, we recommend you instead spend a half-day or an entire day in an elephant sanctuary, such as Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, to feed or wash them.
5. Have a Water Fight During Songkran, Thailand
You are lucky if your visit happens to coincide with a local festival in Southeast Asia. There are many cultural festivals in Southeast Asia, including Songkran and Krathong Law, which are welcoming to travelers. Festivals offer you a unique insight into local customs and traditions.
- Songkran: the Thai New Year is celebrated with giant water battles taking place in the cities. It is celebrated in April.

Heather Stern Wilensky,
Ms. Ning first review 4-2023
Ms. Albee Ning has been doing a great job accommodating my requests and itinerary changes. Remember the first itinerary is a rough draft and you may modify it to suit your tastes. Remember you can not do it all and see everything in 3 weeks. If the flight wasn't so long I would visit Southeast Asia more often. I will update my review in a few months. We don't leave for 9 more months. Asia Highlights is working well for me so far!
Perfect Trip To Thailand…
We had so much fun in Bangkok with Tanni and Tom as they kept laughing at all of our silly jokes. Paul, our guide and Chiang Mai was really thoughtful, fun and full of great information about the temples and sights. Thanks so much! Brian and Michelle
I highly recommend Asia Highlights
I highly recommend Asia Highlights. I worked with Alisa and she is fantastic! I was planning my honeymoon trip, and I changed the destination multiple times. Each time, Alisa provided me an updated itinerary with activities that matched my interests. Whether I had a small change to an activity, a question about one of the arrangements, or a change or destination, Alisa was helpful, thoughtful, and knowledgeable, providing me with updated options in an extremely timely manner. In the end, despite the fact that I changed my mind on location multiple times, I ended up booking a 17 day trip to Thailand for this upcoming November. I am extremely excited to experience everything that Alisa planned for us. I recommend Asia Highlights to everyone and look forward to using them again on any other trips to Asia in the future. Thank you Alisa and Asia Highlights!
Three weeks encompassing Vietnam
A special shoutout to our last guide in Bangkok - Ms. Ka-Noon who spoiled us with her kindness and then got us through check in and security for our flight home in record time at that huge Bangkok airport.
Over the last 5 years we've used Asia…
Over the last 5 years we've used Asia highlights twice. And both times we've had fantastic vacations. Would not want to do it any different when we travel to Asia from now on. Sharon was fantastic. She was a wonderful agent who helped us nail down our trip and make everything go as smooth as possible.
Family Trip to Thailand
Our trip to Thailand comprised three generations of the family , ten people and an age range of 4 to 70 so a potentially difficult brief.Our itinerary over two weeks involved four locations, and a number of different trips and tours.From out arrival at an extremely busy Bangkok airport Asia Highlights were terrific.In each location we were met by a smiling , knowledgeable and professional guide who simply made everything easy and stress free for everyone.Our transportation was clean and comfortable . Transport was always ready for us at the agreed time and the drivers were excellent.There were so many highlights enjoyed by all the age groups. The floating houses , railway market and elephant sanctuary were particular favourites.We had one minor glitch with the accommodation in Phuket which was immediately dealt with by Tip. I think we would have struggled to resolve the problem by ourselves.
So, thank you Asia Highlights , Cathy, Tip and tour guides Tanny, Sam and Lisa. It was a memorable holiday and we will be back.
Trip of a lifetime from Asia Highlights!
I recommend highly Asia Highlights as a travel company. Our travel consultant Albee took the time to connect with us during the planning process to make sure we were comfortable with our itinerary. When we arrived, we were met by our guide and all the details were attended to. They picked great hotels and tours. I often describe our trip as the trip of a lifetime! Would definitely use them again when we come back to Asia
Asia Highlights and Albee - highly recommended
Asia Highlights is very reliable agency and Albee is an amazing representative of the company. From the moment when we contacted her until our departure, the whole support we received was 6* level.

In the period between the offer and the trip, Albee was always available for all our questions and supported us on the best possible way. During the trip she was again flexible to add new activities/transfers and this went on the smoothest possible way. Thank you, Albee and Asia Highlights.
