Hong Kong

The vibrant country that is Hong Kong offers many things — adventure, luxury, and gastronomic pleasure. It may not be the cheapest travel destinations, but it’s an experience worth having at least once with great company.

Where to Stay: Check out Yesinn at Causeway Bay for a cozy stay with your friends. For a relaxing and lavish stay with family, try East Hotel.

South Korea

South Korea is a tourist hotspot because of its influences on our culture — from all the koreanovelas, KPOP bands, Korean beauty products, and indulgent Korean cuisine — that make us want so badly to visit at least once in our lives. But Korea is so much more than its idols; it’s a country rich in beautiful landscapes, vibrant festivals, and age-old tradition.

Where to Stay: Metro Hotel Myeongdong is a great place to check into with your small circle of friends if you ever find yourself in Seoul. Mayfield Hotel is likewise a good option for families.

What to do and see: Embark on a day trip to Nami Island, spend an afternoon of fun at Lotte World, experience teamLab World, a beautiful art exhibition that brings together dance, technology, and art in one location, and stroll along the streets of Seoul while wearing a hanbok!



You will never get enough of Japan no matter how many times you visit. Wherever you end up in, be it in well-loved Tokyo and Osaka or in lesser-known Hokkaido and Okinawa, you’re guaranteed to experience a one-of-a-kind trip that will make you fall in love with the country over and over again.

Where to Stay: Find home in the hip and comfy Nui. Hostel and Bar Lounge in Taito with your friends. Or, opt for the conveniently located Hundred Stay Shinjuku with your family.

What to do and see: Have fun at Tokyo Disneyland or Universal Studios Japan, see amazing views at the iconic Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree, tour around Kyoto, and visit Mount Fuji.
