As global travel has become more accessible, tourism has become a massive industry in Asia.

If you are looking for off the beaten path destinations in Asia, you’re in luck! We’ve comprised a list of 9 destinations in Asia that will satisfy your wanderlust without being surrounded by tourist traps.


Tajikistan is a beautiful country in Central Asia. Did you know that the capital of Tajikistan – Dushanbe, which is also the largest city, translates as Monday from Tajik language? Even though we can't say it is a dream destination for every traveller, it is still a country of an amazing lanscape, which is perfect for the adventurist! 94% of land is covered by glorious mountains.

The Pamir Mountains — often referred to as the "roof of the world" - provide the ultimate hiking experience. Also don’t miss Iskanderkul, a glacial mountain lake whose crystal clear waters are stunningly reflective.

Overall, trust us, when we say that we strongly advice to consider this Asian gem for your next vacation!

Yala, Sri Lanka

Yala National Park is impressive to say the least. The park consists of five blocks, two of which are now open to the public. Even though it is only second largest park in Sri Lanka, Yala National Park actually has one of the largest populations of leopards in the world!

Experience the true nature of Asia with monkeys jumping through the crowns of trees, peacocks showing off there beautiful colours, elephants minding their own business, and funny sloths hanging around!

All what’s left to say is that if you’re looking for a twist on a safari or animal adventure, Yala is a perfect destination for you to visit!


Otherwise known as Burma, Myanmar has a closed off and horrifying past, which has kept it isolated from the international community. Now is a great time to go to Myanmar because the government has been shifting over past year and the people are welcoming of outsiders. This mysterious and undiscovered nation will make you feel like you’ve transported to another era, but it has jungles, temples, beaches and communities that are well worth exploring.

Taipei, Taiwan

Taipei may not be as popular as Hong Kong or Tokyo, but that doesn’t mean it should be missed! Not only does the city have fabulous street food, but Taipei is also home to fascinating history museums and a gritty, authentic urban feel.

Get ready to fall in love with Taipei’s friendly atmosphere, enjoy the diverse cultures of this cosmopolitan, have fun exploring the odd charms of the city and simply have one of the best times exploring this Asian paradise.

Khao Sok National Park, Thailand

When in Thailand, don’t forget to visit some of their phenomenal national parks. A lot of people believe Khao Sok National Park, a unique lowland jungle is over 160 million years old, which makes it one of the world's oldest rainforests!

Macau, China

Most people know Macau as the Vegas of China, but it is actually home to a very rich history. Because of the Western influences, visitors can see history before their eyes when they see Chinese temples mixed with the ruins of the 17th-century Christian churches.
