Travelling is always a fun idea. It is a chance to visit something new and achieve beyond what you won’t normally do. It is exciting to know there is something to look forward after so many days or months of preparing for the trip.
Part of planning is to make sure that the trip is free of any mishaps or bumps along the way. And that would mean having a good weather all throughout the journey. However, what if the only time you can take that much-needed trip is when it is already the monsoon season?
What will you do? Just do it and push through with your trip. Adventure starts beyond the comfort zone! As proven through time, the path to discovery always includes some uncertainty along the way.
There are several destinations you can definitely still enjoy when it is the green season. And Southeast Asia should be on top of the list. With a diverse culture, wonderful topography, mouth-watering food, interesting city life, and genuine people; it seems going to these places can brighten any gloomy weather.
Accentuating the overall travel experience with its rainy season, these are the places you should visit:
Everyone who has been to Cambodia knows how majestic Angkor Wat is. The only downside is that due to the volume of tourists during the not-so-rainy days, one could not even take a decent photo of the lotus pond during sunrise. Imagine, what a peaceful trip with only the raindrop in the backdrop. By the time the tour around Angkor Wat is done, the memory that will be left is all its spellbinding beauty.
Blessed with pristine tropical wilderness, it’s no wonder there really no bad season to visit Brunei. When it is rainy, the almost surreal splendour of nature will keep you enamoured. One can also visit the different mosque that is open to the public.
With the country’s display of discipline and success, there is one thing that is unpredictable with Singapore: the weather. Don’t fret. Despite the drizzle, there are a lot of activities you can do in the city. Universal Studios is one of your best spots to have fun even when it’s raining cats and dogs.
