7. Vietnam: Beaches and party time

Still synonymous with war and the Viet Cong, it is worth visiting the Chu Chi tunnels to the North West of Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) to experience what it was really like for Vietnamese soldiers.

Vietnam also has some stunning beaches which are often combined with some basic but homely beach houses. These areas provide the perfect places to relax after the heat, humidity and claustrophobia of Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi.

One of the better places is Na Trang which has a reputation of a party town and has some excellent bars and restaurant. Just beware of the rice vodka and bamboo straws.

8. China: Mount Emei

Situated in the Sichaun province, ‘Emei Shan’ is the western most, and tallest of the four sacred mountains of China.

Buddhists regard the mountains as being the 'Gateway to the Gods', and because of this, temples line the track all the way up to the summit.

It takes around three days to hike up and down, possibly the longest staircase in the world.

Most people stay overnight on the first evening in on of the monasteries and spend the second at the Golden Temple in order to see the sunrise.

The summit is incredible - a pocket of land that seems to rest on a carpet of clouds at 9,800 feet.

9. Laos: Chillax in Si Phan Don

Right on the border with Cambodia in the Mekong Delta, Si Phan Don, can be translated as four-thousand islands because of the plethora of islets that jut out in dry season.

Don Khon is probably one of the best to stay on if it is tourists you are looking to escape. There is often a day trip from Pakse, but the visitors only tend to stay on the island for an hour or so.

By getting an early morning boat trip you can catch a glimpse of the rare Irrawaddy dolphins or explore the old French colonial buildings which remain.

Take in the Li Phi waterfalls or just stroll leisurely through the villages. Once away from the accommodation centre of the island you can really get a taste for the true Laos.

10. Indonesia: Surfing in Bali and Java.

This area is one of the world’s most renowned surfing destinations. The Bukit peninsula (Bali) includes some of Bali’s best waves and breaks including Dreamland, the Impossibles, and Padang Padang. It also has white-sand and some glorious undeveloped beaches.

For the less experienced surfers, head to the fishing village of Pelabuhan Ratu (Java). It has a great village atmosphere and friendly locals, with options to suit all levels.
