Myths About Traveling To Asia You Should Never Believe

Everyone may agree with the statement saying that Asia is probably one of the most magical places you can visit. A lot of travelers go in and out of the continent every year, bringing home with them fantastic memories, picture-perfect moments captured on camera and unforgettable experiences that have changed their perspective on life. However, even though traveling to Asia sounds like a wonderful adventure, there are those that still buy into myths that are stopping them from planning a visit.

Myths About Traveling To Asia Debunked

You’ve probably been putting your trip off because you believe common myths about traveling to Asia on this list are true:

Asia is a dangerous place to visit.

If Asia was dangerous, you wouldn’t hear about several travelers’ amazing experiences through their personal websites or their social media accounts. You also probably wouldn’t see several pictures online about some of the most breath-taking Asian views. Besides, if a particular Asian country was dangerous, in the middle of war, or something to that effect, you can be sure that your local travel authorities would let you know.

Traveling to Asia can break your bank.

Who, in the world, says that going to Asia can break your bank? It could if you choose to be in first class all the way, but there are several options you can choose from – low-budget to mid-budget trip options. How do you think a lot of travel bloggers went to Asia? It’s not because they were treated to first class accommodation, that’s for sure. They did it backpacking. Some foods and accommodations can fit your budget. Just stay away from major hotels.

You need to learn the language first.

It’s true that there are certain countries that require a traveler or an immigrant worker to learn the language, first, before they can visit. But, there is no such requirement when you visit Asia. Maybe if you are planning to work in Japan or Korea, a company may need you to learn the basics of their native language, but travelers don’t have to take a class or undergo language training of any sort.

So, those are the most common myths about Asia that may be stopping you from planning a trip. Now that you know they aren’t true, is there anything else that’s hindering you from paying Asia a visit?

There's something for all types of daredevils in Asia.

Hold Your Breath: Crazy Activities For Real Daredevils In Asia

Even though there is no denying that Asia offers some amazing opportunities for rest and relaxation, it is not all about ancient temples, perfect massages and exotic cocktails by the beach. There are also a number of exciting opportunities for real daredevils in Asia.

Daredevils in Asia Love To Indulge In These Super-Exciting Activities

What is so attractive to daredevils in Asia? It has to be the perfect combination of the wild, unspoiled natural backdrop as they indulge in some of the wildest, most dangerous adventures. If you are one of those people who get their kicks out of risking life and limb and also enjoy visiting exotic destinations, this article is an absolute must-read.

Bungee Jumping in Macau, China

If jumping off a tall tower into the void is your idea of fun, you will definitely find the world’s highest commercial bungee jump (at a breath-taking 233m) an irresistible challenge. This is how tall the Macau Tower is, but if you’re used to jumping off bridges with the calming sight of water underneath, you will find this experience quite different. You see, in the case of Macau Tower there nothing but concrete (and a specially designed airbag on which to land) waiting for you as you jump. Of course, the urban allure of the neon skyline of Macau will make this experience quite indelible for daredevils in Asia.

Diving and Snorkelling in Palawan, Philippines

If you love water and exploring the natural treasures lying in the bottom of the sea, Palawan Island in the Philippines is an ideal destination. With their pristine waters and rich underwater life, like coral reefs and all sorts of exotic fish, it’s no wonder places like El Nido and Coron are so popular among daring snorkelers the world over.

Trekking To Mount Everest Base Camp, in Nepal          

And finally, for those who prefer the cool air of mountains and the unique sense of freedom they provide visitors, there is no mountain destination more well-known than the legendary Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain at 8,848m above sea level.

If climbing is not your thing, you can actually trek it to the Southern Everest Base Camp at the awe-inspiring height of 5,364m. This is a perfect alternative to just climbing the mountain, as it offers trekkers wonderful insight into the local culture as well as the all-important mountain views that visitors can’t get enough of.

So, whatever their activity of preference, adrenaline-junkies will find the perfect chance to have fun here. It’s no exaggeration to say there is something for all kinds of daredevils in Asia.

Some of the best movie-inspired Asian destinations.

Asian Destinations So Gorgeous They Became Major Movie Stars

Whatever your taste in films and whether you’ve been to Asia in the past or not, if you love films and also like to travel, these movie-inspired Asian destinations are just the thing for you.

Pick And Choose From These Asian Destinations From Famous Movies

Asia is gorgeous; we all know that even if we have never visited the place. Some of the most well-known films have contributed to the popularity of the biggest continent as a travel destination. Here are some of them.

“The King and I” (1956), “Anna and the King” (1999) – The Grand Palace, Bangkok

In 1862, Louis Thomas Leonowens was just a child when he visited majestic Bangkok. He spent 5 whole years in Thailand’s Royal Palace as a resident with his mother, Anna Leonowens.

It is his mother’s tales that became the inspiration behind not one but two films: the first, 1956’s “The King and I” and the most recent (1999) “Anna and the King”. Anna worked as a teacher at King Mongkut’s children for 5 years. The Grand Palace, where it all took place, and where the blackboard used by Anna and the kids still exists, is not one single building. It is a breath-taking, sprawling complex of intricate golden spires, carefully carved traditional temples, all set around open lawns, gardens and magnificent courtyards, all of which have undergone changes and additions by successive reigning kings over the place’s 200 years of existence.

The Grand Palace is one of the most well-known movie-inspired Asian destinations.

The Grand Palace is the location where Anna Leonowens spent 5 years looking after King Mongkut’s children.

“Indochine” (1992) – Vietnam

The mush-loved French language film narrates the story of a French plantation owner (the wonderful Catherine Deneuve) during the Vietnamese people’s struggle for French Indochina’s independence from France. It can be credited with putting Vietnam on travelers’ maps with its beautiful scenes. In Hanoi, you can still visit the café where Deneuve took her breakfast every morning during filming. The opening scene of a funeral procession of boats on Hue’s infamous Perfume River is so atmospheric you almost feel like you are there yourself.

Throughout the movie, there are a number of locations across Vietnam including Halong Bay, even though most of it is shot, Hue. There is also a wedding scene taking place in the magical palace of Emperor Dong Khan, and one with Deneuve and her on-screen daughter which is shot in a pavilion overlooking a lake in the city of Emperor Tu Duc. It is worth noting that there were a number of popular films shot in Vietnam before “Indochine”, but almost all of them were American war films that didn’t really do justice to this place of wild beauty and charm.

One of the most atmospheric movie-inspired Asian destinations is Perfume River, in Vietnam.

Perfume River is one of the most atmospheric locations in the classic film “Indochine”.

“The Beach” (2000) – Phi Phi Leh Island, Thailand

Danny Boyle’s 2000 adaptation of Alex Garland’s novel became a hit not just thanks to the amazing performance of its protagonist, Leonardo Di Caprio, but also because of the magnificent views of an extraordinary beach in Phi Phi Leh Island, close to Phuket, in Thailand. The area was one of those destroyed by the terrible 2004 tsunami but has managed to recover since and has regained its popularity among travelers who love exotic destinations.

Phi Phi Leh Island is the location of "The Beach", and one of the most popular movie-inspired Asian destinations.

Phi Phi Leh Island is the majestic location of the much-loved film “The Beach”.

“Kong: Skull Island” (2017) – Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

The latest film to hit cinemas in the King Kong saga “Kong: Skull Island”, was shot in various locations around the world, with many of its scenes taking place in northern Vietnam. Aerial shots and helicopter chases took place in the dramatic limestone mountains of Ha Long Bay. Filming locations also include UNESCO World Heritage site Tràng An and the impressive Tú Làn Caves System.

Ha Long Bay is one of the movie-Inspired Asian destinations, since "Kong:Skull Island" was partly shot there.

Ha Long Bay is one of the picturesque locations where “Kong: Skull Island” was filmed.

“The Bridge on the River Kwai” (1957), “Tarzan, the Ape Man” (1981), “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (1984) – Sri Lanka

The island country of Sri Lanka, in South Asia, is one of the most attractive film locations. Despite the fact that the actual bridge in the film is in Thailand, “The Bridge on the Rive Kwai” shows a very costly bridge (reportedly $250,000 at the time) specially made for the film itself, 425 feet long and rising 90 feet above the water.

Kelani river is another movie-inspired Asian destination, sice the film "The bridge on the river Kwai" was shot there.

A tributary of Kelani River is where David Lean decided to shoot the famous film “The Bridge on the River Kwai”

The film tells the story of a group of Japanese war-prisoner captors who were made to build a bridge over the River Kwai which, once completed, would help the Japanese connect Thailand and Burma (Myanmar). Director David Lean asked that the bridge is built in a small community called Kitulgala on the Masleliya Oya, a tributary of the Kelani River, between the Sri Lankan capital Colombo and Kandy.

“Tarzan, the Ape Man” was a remake of the homonymous, iconic 1932 film. The 1981 film was mainly filmed in different parts of Sri Lanka’s Hill Country, but visitors who wish to swing on vines like the much-loved jungle hero will definitely appreciate the opportunities to do so in the Sinha raja reserve.

If you want to swing like Tarzan, the Sinha Raja reserve is the place for you.

Live the true Tarzan experience in the lush Sinha Raja reserve.

The second film in the blockbuster series, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” was directed by Hollywood favorite Steven Spielberg and starred Harrison Ford in the legendary role of the brave archaeologist. When “Temple of Doom” was denied permission to film in Rajasthan (authorities thought the script was offensive), Spielberg opted for Sri Lanka’s second city, Kandy.

One of the more loved movie-inspired Asian destinations is Sri Lanka.

Indiana Jones fans are certain to love the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, in Kandy.

Today, Kandy is the gateway to the majestic Hill Country, and home to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, which is considered to be the country’s holiest spot, as it houses a tooth of the Buddha himself.

If we haven’t convinced you of the unique beauty of these exotic movie-inspired Asian locations, perhaps watching one of the silver-screen gems mentioned above will.
