Asia has so many amazing parts to it – as well as the beauty of Nepal, there’s also the bright metropolis of Singapore, the ancient traditions of Japan, or the countryside of the Philippines. Each country offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience to reward visitors who go off the well-beaten tourist tracks of these places. Here’s how you can do that in three of our best picks of Asia.

Singapore – take a tour at night

This small country encapsulates what modern Asia is all about: sleek, modern buildings, stunning structures and bright lights. When is it best to see the bright lights? At night, of course!

Take a river cruise and see the city from the water, or explore the Marina Bay area – which really comes alive once the sun sets. If there’s one place you go to after dark, though, it’s the Gardens by the Bay.

This is where you can stare up in awe at the Supertree Grove with its beautiful plants and light displays, then wander through the calming gardens after a day of sightseeing. You can maybe pop in to the Flower Dome, as recommended by mrhudsonexplores.com, for its continuous spring-like conditions that present visitors with bright blooms.

Japan – make traditional foods

If you think of Japan, you may have an image of buzzing cities, something kawaii or even the beautiful cherry blossoms in spring. Great though those images may be, you just can’t take that feeling back home with you when your trip comes to an end. What if you could?

Nothing gets our memories going more than a smell or taste of a meal that we’ve had before. It takes us back to that time and place, so going for a cooking class means you can try and recreate the experience when you’re back home. You can also get to learn more about the traditional Japanese culture through making your food and from your host.

You can book classes to make any of the local delicacies, from sushi to noodles to gyoza (dumplings). They can be booked in most of the larger, popular tourist towns and cities of Japan.

Philippines – see the rainforest

The capital city, Manila, can get hot and busy so it might not be for everyone at first, but it’s worth the trip because it’s a fantastic base to explore this gorgeous country.

One must-do experience is to visit the Masungi Georeserve. It’s just over an hour’s drive from Manila, but the views you get when you arrive (and on the road journey there) are more than worth it.

Make sure you take a sturdy pair of boots when you go; there are rope courses on the main trail, as well as a hanging bridge, and the terrain is not for the faint-hearted. Yet the adventure of trekking through this rainforest, and the reward you’ll get as you reach the summit of each peak and obstacle, will give you memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Travel Insurance is mandatory for all customers looking to travel in Nepal with the Nepal Tours. The Travel Insurance must cover both the medical and emergency evacuation cost. We recommend that your insurance is worth a minimum of USD 100,000. If you don’t have insurance when trekking in Nepal then not only is your life in real danger but it will end up costing you your health and your bank account. The obvious afflictions when trekking are things like a sprained ankle or even a broken bone.

I’ve seen plenty of these when trekking. The not so obvious are afflictions like altitude sickness, food poisoning, hypothermia, appendix ruptures, skin infections and respiratory infections. If any of the above happens to you at 4,900 feet up a mountain then there’s a strong chance you won’t want to be spending days or weeks trekking back to Kathmandu to a hospital. You’ll need a helicopter to get you down. A helicopter evacuation in Nepal costs a minimum of USD $5,000. That’s not including any hospital treatment or in-flight medical services which are now mandatory.

Not everyone knows about the best travel insurance for trekking in Nepal. Now that you know that travel insurance exists, you must be curious about why you might need it. It may seem like you do. Or it could sound like a burdened cost.

What is travel insurance?

Travel Insurances is the insurance that basically covers trip cancellation, travel medical insurance, flight accident, luggage lost and other losses incurred while traveling. Some travel policies cover damage to personal property, rented equipment. Some travel insurances also cover the cost of paying a ransom.

  • Baggage coverage:
    Baggage coverage covers things such as loss of checked luggage, baggage delay up to various amounts. The coverage depends on the policies and packages provided. Some policies may just pay for the additional expenses you incur because you lost your luggage and reimburse you for those items.

What do you think is the ideal way of celebrating a wedding anniversary? Throwing a party, go out on a dinner date or a movie date, hang out with friends, a romantic candle light dinner, travel, take pictures and capture the moment, cut cakes and blow up balloons and what not!! These are the list of very few things that strikes our mind when we think of it. But for David Richardson and Jessica Richardson, planning their big anniversary day was not an easy task.

California based Richardson’s are currently working in Mauritious. They wanted their big day to be unique and adventurous. Rather than having a typical boring anniversary, they wanted to come up with something totally challenging and worth remembering in years to come. Eventually, they decided to celebrate their anniversary in Kala Patthar at 5664m and feel the cold breeze of Mount Everest. They also decided to make it up to all UNESCO listed heritage sites in Kathmandu Valley.

Though their anniversary was on September, Richardson’s decided to visit Nepal on November as it was the best season to visit Nepal. It was their fifth anniversary and Nepal trip was much anticipated. “Yes! What we dreamt has been materialized. Despite of the earthquake in April and the problems caused due to economic blockade, our dream came true and we didn’t find any difficulties celebrating our anniversary,” said Jessica after accomplishing their dream anniversary and having a photo shoot on their bridal wears at all the places. She added that the only dificulty she faced was fitting on the same bridal attire for five consecutive years. It was quite a challenge!

The couple said that they were highly overwhelmed by the warm hospitality of Nepalese people. They were inspired by the warmth of the people, the endurance and patience at gasoline lines, the way Nepalese people adapted to almost everything, their kind nature and then they were awestruck by the mountains. The couple further added that nothing can beat their 5th anniversary in Kathmandu. It was one hell of an experience and a lifetime achievement for them. It was the best anniversary celebration they have ever had. They had celebrated their first anniversary in Salsburg, second in Brussel, third in Rome,fourth in Mauritius and fifth in Nepal.

“We are even more happy after learning the fact that we have set a new  record of celebrating anniversary on Bridal attire at Kalapathar. It was indeed a proud moment”, says David and Jessica in a common voice. “We are returning back today with a message that Nepal is safe, secure, beautiful and welcoming as before despite of going through a hard time. Accurate global message needs to be spread to deliver correct message to people around the globe. Hey travellers ! Do visit this beautiful country now as there are less tourist in many mountains and you can enjoy a lot. If you want the madness to yourself, do pay a visit to Nepal.”, said David and Jessica.
