The Philipines: Scuba Diving

The colorful reefs and crystal blue water of Coron Bay in Palawan invite people to explore the beautiful waters. But it is what lays deep down below that you want to be sure to check out. Beneath the surface of Coron Bay lays a well-preserved shipwreck. One of the island’s biggest attractions for tourists and locals alike is the underwater wreckage of the Okinawa Maru, a 560-foot Japanese fleet that sunk after a U.S. bombing during World War II.

Laos: Waterfall Jungle Trek

If you get out of the city of Luang Prabang and wander off into the jungle, you’ll hit a little town called Nong Khiaw. If hiking is what you are into, you will be sure to have a blast trekking along the Nam Ou River, walking through rice fields, climbing the forest-covered mountains, and exploring the 65-foot waterfalls. Be sure to bring a good pair of walking shoes and be prepared for slippery rocks.

Luckily, these cliffs are terrain for all skill levels, so whether you are an expert or novice climber, the cliffs of Thailand will have something for you!

Indonesia: Volcano Mountain Biking

On Mount Bromo in East Java, thrill-seekers can hike or drive up an active volcano. You can make your way all the way up to the crater’s rim and mountain bike to the bottom, feeling the volcano’s roar, and intense heat the whole way down.
