This hidden beach, which surprisingly, is located in the heart of Hanoi city, has a vastly different vibe from the modern city’s centre. With cane fields and farmers seen ploughing the alluvial grounds of the Red River, it resembles an olden day countryside.

They may not be the most socially-accepted naturist bunch by many Hanoi residents, but these nude-bathers are a close knit community who regularly exercise, meditate and simply chill out amidst the nature together.

No trip to Japan would be complete without soaking an afternoon away at an iconic Onsen bath. These gender-segregated baths are available both indoors and outdoors. And for an even more memorable experience, soak in an outdoor hot spring in the middle of the coldest winter season. The sensational experience of extreme heat and cold is going to be like no other.

And the craziest Onsen of all… Nude bathing with a family of Japanese macaques!!!! This incredibly surreal experience is at Jigokudani Monkey Park, Nagano Prefecture, which transforms into a stunning snowscape in winter.

This party island in Southeastern Thailand is also home to a gorgeous nudist beach. Despite its small size, the sandy white shore and palm fringed background make Leela Beach a perfect sanctuary to chill out, and also to attain that flawless tan. Also, don’t be surprise if you see naked men casually practising yoga in the middle of the pristine sands.

Who says Chinese are a conservative bunch? Nude sunbathing in China’s Dadonghai Beach, has been a years-long tradition. Dadonghai Beach is not only China’s only (unofficial) nudist beach, it is famed for being one of the cleanest beaches in China as well.

Sadly, protests against these “unsightly” nude bathers are frequently practiced and naked men, especially, are often ordered to cover up. Make your way to this classic Chinese nudist beach before it’s no longer available for you to go au naturel.

So if you fancy strutting around freely without anything on nor a care of the world, The Oriental Village is more than willing to welcome you as it liberally embraces and encourages nudism within its beautiful village.

And as if these naturist resorts in Thailand aren’t liberal enough, you can even hike naked (ouch…) in this amazing country. As uncomfortable as it may sound, this should probably be included in every adventurous hiker’s bucket list. With such crazy possibilities of different nudism-related activities, it’s no wonder Thailand boasts the title of the fastest growing naturist industry in the world.

The Oblation Run at Philippines’ State University is an annual tradition where members of the fraternity bare it all and run around the campus to express their stance on existing social issues.

And as if having thousands of naked fratmen scampering around the campus isn’t overwhelming enough for the spectators, these fratmen are said to hand out roses to screaming women while running. Some even use this unusual opportunity to impress the girls they are courting!

Gia Long Waterfall, Dak Lak Province, Vietnam

Are nude baths in beaches and hot spring baths too ordinary for you? Vietnam has stepped up its nudist game by offering travellers waterfalls for them to bare it all. One of which is Gia Long Waterfall. Tucked away in the Krong Ana district of Dak Lak Province, this romantic hideout is located amidst a jungle – ideal for a cooling skinny dip after an exhausting jungle trek.

Kumbh Mela, India

Kumbh Mela is not only India’s most major festival, it is also the world’s biggest gathering, attracting a whopping 100 million people annually. During the festival, thousands of Hindu devouts would smear themselves with ashes as they congregate together in nudity for holy dips in the sacred rivers of India. Alongside, supporters – both naked and clothed – would be dancing and chanting Hindu scriptures as they wait for their turn to step into the icy-cold water.

Perched on stilts overlooking a beautiful lagoon, these luxurious suites will guarantee you the fanciest skinny-dipping experience.
