Best Phuket beaches in Thailand

Best Phuket beaches in Thailand

As Thailand’s largest island, there’s no shortage of gorgeous coastline or perfect, unspoiled beaches to enjoy in Phuket. Pack your swimsuit and get your beach towels ready —here are the top beaches in Phuket.Freedom BeachFreedom by name, freedom by nature. Despite being located in the boisterous district of Patong, Freedom Beach is far from what one might expect. A quiet, unspoiled beach, it’s much less accessible than the majority of beaches on the island as land access requires getting in touch with your adventurous side and trekking through a jungle, but is also reachable by boat. Any extra effort you take to visit this gorgeous 300m strip of beach is well worth it; few people come here, leaving you in relative peace to enjoy the clear, turquoise sea and the backdrop of thick, green bush that lines the beach.Kata BeachAt around 1.5km long, Kata Beach is big enough never to feel overly crowded and ensures you’ll always have ample space for a towel on the beach. Palm tree-lined with soft, white sand and plenty of places to eat and drink nearby, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular with tourists and locals. As well as activities such as surfing available, there are plenty of shops nearby to engage in retail therapy, plus resorts if planning on staying a while. With lots of space and so much going on, it’s ideal for families or those who want a break from the more raucous beaches in the area.Ya Nui BeachWhat Ya Nui beach lacks in size, it more than makes up for in beauty. Just south of Nai Harn, it may only be 200m, but size isn’t everything. Rather than views of resorts, it features the view of nearby Koh Keyao Noi island, and has dramatic rocky outcrops set alongside the cerulean sea that look ready-made for photographs. In terms of activities, body-boarding is popular here, as is snorkeling, with some of the best snorkeling to be found out by Koh Keyao Noi, which is only a short kayak away.Surin BeachA beach that was once visited by the late King Rama IX in the 50s, it’s since become a playground for the rich and wealthy, with a number of high-class resorts and hotels nearby as well as a golf course. It’s not hard to see why it’s so popular; soft, white sand gives way to a scenic row of palm trees, while the sea itself has both light and deeper blue tones. A word of caution — the sea here gets deeper than in other bays, so be careful if you’re planning on swimming. Other than that, it’s an extremely pleasant beach with a number of good restaurants and bars just a short walk away.Source: Internet

The best historical sites to visit in Vietnam

The best historical sites to visit in Vietnam

You will regret if you miss visiting historical sites which reflect a dark side of the country heavily affected by war for centuries. This list picks up the best places of historical interest to visit around Vietnam, from the rudimentary hand-dug tunnels to a brutal prison complex where thousands of Vietnamese people died.Con Dao Prison ComplexIt has been 42 years since the prisons of Con Dao were shut down, horrific memories still cast a forbidding shadow over this quiet town. Being called “the true hell on earth,” this used to be home to tens of thousands of Vietnamese prisoners who suffered and died at the hands of French colonials at first and later the US-backed South Vietnamese government between 1863 and 1975. Fettered and contorted mannequins bring the bone-chilling experience to reality.Hoa Lo PrisonWhile historical museums in Hanoi are mostly rather propagandist and perhaps superficial, Hoa Lo Prison can be a good fit to get knowledge on the city’s back story. Despite many modern restorations, it offers a real sense of the past. Head to the gloomy rooms to see erstwhile prison cells which witnessed the incarceration of the US pilots, including Senator John McCain and more importantly, the ghastliness and barbarity that many Vietnamese nationalist leaders and revolutionaries suffered during the French colony.Cu Chi TunnelsCu Chi Tunnels, a complex network of underground tunnels were firstly built in the late 1940s during the French colonial period and later were expanded in the early 1960s when the US escalated its military presence in South Vietnam to support a non-Communist regime. Read more about Cu Chi Tunnels here to understand their significant role in the country’s war history.My Son Cham RuinsMy Son sanctuary which houses Vietnam’s most extensive Cham ruins once served as the religious and political center of the kingdom of Champa for centuries. The fact that it is constantly compared with Angkor Wat of the Khmer kingdom may cause the misleading impression of the natural beauty of My Son Cham ruins. The temples were discovered by the French archaeologists in the late 19th century but later suffered from heavy destruction from the US bombs.Source Internet

The combination of glorious scenery and deep history make Con Son island a fascinating place to visit.Ly Son IslandLy Son is a beautiful island of Quang Ngai province.

The unique features are stunning coral reefs and sea diving. With unspoiled coral, low sea level, and pure blue water, the Nha Cu Beach in Binh Ba is a perfect place to see the coral reefs and swim with colorful fish.In addition, those adventurers can go along the mountainside to explore such untouched relics as artillery, and bunkers.  Those who prefer natural beauty can take a small walk along the seashore to collect colorful snail shells, and look at the grandeur range of stones, cliffs or exotic caves.

Best diving spots in Vietnam

Best diving spots in Vietnam

Vietnam is unexpectedly a diving paradise for diving lovers and non-divers alike. To help you make the right decision of the best dive spots to hit, we’ve put together a list of the best diving in Vietnam.Nha TrangThe most popular area for diving in Vietnam is in Nha Trang. Why I hear you say? It’s simple. Nha Trang Bay boasts 12,000 hectares of reef-filled waters known as the Hon Mun Marine Protected Area. The dive sites here are perfect for beginners learning to dive, due to its shallow waters, but are also ideal for experienced divers! Expect to see a range of tropical fish from butterfly and box fish to moray eels and pufferfish, and expect to see them perfectly as the visibility is great in July and August. There are many great dives in Nha Trang, so we’ve listed our best below for you.Hoi An & Da NangDa Nang is a major port of Vietnam along the coast of the South China Sea, along with Hoi An which is 18 miles (29 kilometres) south east. Compared to the other sites, these two cities receive less diving enthusiasts, and thus, the diving potential here largely remains unexplored. The most popular diving sites in Da Nang are found around Son Tra Peninsula, 7 miles (12 kilometres) north, and the best time for diving here is between February to September. It is best to avoid other months due to rough waters and poor visibility.Whale IslandJust a 90-minute drive north of Nha Trang, you’ll find the idyllic Whale Island nestled in Van Phong Bay. This beautiful and sheltered bay is the epitome of a true island getaway, complete with turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. With the whales and whale sharks coming to the archipelago to feed on masses of krill and plankton (between April and July), there is no better name for the island than this.Con Dao IslandsThe Con Dao archipelago is located down south of Vietnam, and is a group of 16 islands, many of which are a part of Con Dao National Park and enjoy a protected status. There are around 20 diving sites of varying difficulties in the region, and the natural beauty of this area features landscapes adorned with reefs and colourful coral formations. You will also find the only dive-able wreck in Vietnam, which is extremely photogenic, decorated by corals and sponges, and is the key place to see pelagic animals like hawksbill turtles, sharks, and rays.Phu QuocAlthough visibility may not be great in Phu Quoc (due to the run-off water from the Mekong River), the healthy water means hard coral growth and an abundance of fish life. Officially opened for diving in 2002, Phu Quoc is surprisingly still being discovered today. A perfect diving area for beginners, yet offering challenging dives for macro-lovers, here are our top picks for dive sites in Phu Quoc.Phu Quoc’s depths still largely remain undiscovered, and new sites are found every season. Head over here if you are looking for some once-in-a-lifetime adventures — to ‘go where no man has ever gone before’.Source: Internet
