Asia is home to some of the most beautiful sights to be seen in the world. However, many people visit the continent during the winter months. Perhaps they are scared off during summer due to the potential for excessive temperatures and an impending rainy season. But that’s not enough reason to completely strike Asian travels from your list of potential summer trips. There are many beautiful parts that are at their peak from July to September, and it would be an awful shame to miss them. So here are a few different destinations you might like to check out in the summer of 2017.

Bali

Bali’s sees most of its visitors pass through from July through to August. Unlike many parts of Asia at this time of year, the region is dry during this time, making summer the ultimate season to visit. Because of its summertime popularity, you might want to avoid busier areas and tourist traps. Try seeking out the alternative side of Bali: trek rice terraces, seek out waterfalls and skirt the edges of temples. Head out early in the morning to secure good spots at beaches and book into restaurants you might like to try out early during your stay.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is urban, making it suitable to visit at any time of the year. The bustling country has so much to offer. From historic sites and temples, such as Tian Tan Buddha and Wong Tai Sin Temple, to Disneyland. There’s something to suit everybody. We’d recommend, as with most urban city breaks, to book into a reputable hotel, such as hotel causeway bay. Hong Kong is a highly popular destination, and you don’t want to leave your accommodation down to chance once you get there, as all hotels in the local area may well be fully booked.

Malaysia

If you’re drawn to the sea and sand, Malaysia might well tick all of your boxes for the holiday of a lifetime. The Tioman and Perhentian islands are highly recommended during the summer months, as the islands’ climes during this period result in calmer seas, which allow for extraordinary snorkeling experiences. If you have your heart set on a more urban retreat, visit Kuala Lumpur, the country’s capital. Book day trips and excursions in advance to avoid disappointment on the day.

Ladakh

Ladakh is a Himalayan region located in North India. It is a summer favorite, with azure blue skies and beautiful weather throughout the summer months. Try exploring the stunning landscape and visiting Buddhist temples along the way. Roads in the region are closed from October to May, so make the most of them being open. Hire a vehicle and take a drive through one of the most spectacular mountain ranges known to man.

Koh Samui

If Thailand has captured your heart, you might fancy taking a trip to Koh Samui. Better known destinations, such as Phuket, are located in the Andaman Sea and experience wet seasons during summer. But Koh Samui lies in the Gulf of Thailand, which has sunny and dry weathers at this time of year.
