Where do beaches, waterfront cafes, rice terraces, and volcanic mountains come together in one? Bali, of course! The Island of Gods is arguably one of Asia Pacific’s most popular holiday destinations, all thanks to its laid back lifestyle where you’ll see tourists travelling around on a scooter to the nearest beach or cafe. Perhaps, you’re travelling here for a yoga retreat or to learn how to surf at the island’s beaches. 

Whatever you’re here for, a Bali getaway is just the thing we need as respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. 

Where to stay: Ramada Encore by Wyndham Seminyak Bali

Tucked away at the end of Jl. Dewi Saraswati III is Ramada Encore by Wyndham Seminyak Bali, where you’ll find spacious rooms and a massive swimming pool. It’s also the perfect mix of quiet and convenience, as you’re just 15 minutes away from Seminyak Beach.

Calling all those looking for a relaxing or adventurous holiday — or anything in between. With 7,641 islands, there’s plenty in the Philippines for travellers on an Asia Pacific holiday to explore; if you’ve been to the Philippines before, you’ll know exactly the sort of wonderful experiences to relive!  

Just by being in the Philippines alone, you’ll rediscover that the beauty of natural wonders knows no limits — from the highest volcano to the lowest underground cave. 

The islands of the Philippines are divided into three main archipelagos, with something in store for everyone: 

  • Luzon, the largest and most populated island where Manila lies
  • Visayas, where you’ll find beaches in Cebu and Boracay, along with delicious cuisine and well-preserved heritage landmarks
  • Mindanao, filled with forests, mountains, and small islands known for its beaches
Where to stay: Ramada by Wyndham Manila Central

Picture this: You’re starting your Philippines holiday in Manila, and you need a place to stay at — from where you can start exploring the city. There’s no better place to do this than at Ramada by Wyndham Manila Central. Aside from being in the heart of Binondo (the world’s oldest Chinatown), you’ve got affordable shopping, historical landmarks, and a thriving gastronomic scene waiting for you.

You’ll never get bored when you’re here, with activities like jet skiing, scuba diving, cliff diving, and swimming in reef-protected waters at Bulabog Beach to look forward to!

Vietnam is home to one of the world’s most favourite noodle dishes: pho. You can find this hearty dish and rediscover its soothing flavour nearly everywhere in the country — for as low as S$2! In keeping with affordability, the country also produces Bia Hoi, aka the world’s cheapest beer. 

From the vibrant nightlife scene in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hạ Long Bay and the rice terraces and mountains in the outskirts, it’s no wonder that Vietnam remains one of the most favourite holiday destinations in Asia Pacific. 

Where to stay: Wyndham Garden Hanoi

Travel to Vietnam

Where to stay: Hotel Sol Halong, Trademark Collection by Wyndham

From the family-friendly Hotel Sol Halong, Trademark Collection by Wyndham, spot the poetry markings at Núi Bài Thơ mountain; then, stay up here, or go diving, hiking, or kayaking within the breathtaking Hạ Long Bay.

4. Thailand

Many will agree: Thailand is one of the most famous choices for a (repeat) holiday in Asia Pacific, and it’s easy to see why. You’ve got vibrant cities of shopping and food like Bangkok and Phuket on one hand, and the calming islands of Krabi and Koh Samui on the other. The best part? It’s a short flight away from most places within the region, so it’s the perfect destination for a weekend getaway. 

Where to stay: Wyndham Grand Nai Harn Beach Resort Phuket

Phuket might be known for the Old Town in the city centre where 19th-century shophouses and Sino-Portuguese buildings lie, or the 45-metre tall Phuket Big Buddha. But if you’re in Phuket for its seaside offerings, then head to Wyndham Grand Nai Harn Beach Resort Phuket

This hotel sits on the island’s southern tip in Nai Harn Beach, and is where you’ll find coastal eateries and pristine beaches. Not to mention, the panoramic viewpoints at Promthep Cape and Windmill Viewpoint beckons just about anyone with its stunning sea views.

Travel to Thailand

Where to stay: Wyndham Bangkok Queen Convention Centre

If shopping is on your to-do list in Thailand, Bangkok is a no-brainer destination. Stay at Wyndham Bangkok Queen Convention Centre to immerse yourself in the heart of the capital city. Shopping spots range from apparel at MBK Center and Platinum Fashion Mall to street food at Pratunam Night Market — and, the most unexpectedly delicious one — convenience store food at 7-Eleven! 

Travel to Thailand

5. Malaysia

No one does historical landmarks, towering skyscrapers, and multi-ethnic food options like Malaysia. In Kuala Lumpur alone, you’ll find Thean Hou Temple, Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan, Merdeka Square, and the Petronas Twin Towers — with the 272 multi-coloured steps of Batu Caves sitting on the city’s northern tip. 

For Singaporeans, Johor Bahru remains a favourite destination in Malaysia. Just a bus ride or drive across the border, and you’ll find plenty of affordable food options from the area near KSL City Mall to Mount Austin. It’s no wonder why many head in just for a quick shopping spree, massage session, or supper! 

Where to stay: Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Fraser Business Park Kuala Lumpur

Not sure where to start your tour of the capital city? At Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Fraser Business Park Kuala Lumpur, you’ve got everything you’ll need from day to night. Start your day by walking to the Chan Sow Lin train station; from here, travel anywhere in the city, like the bustling ​​Bukit Bintang district and Suria KLCC

7. Australia

Did you know that Canberra is actually the capital of Australia? Tourist spots might only include the Australian War Memorial and the National Museum of Australia, but what Canberra lacks in landmarks more than makes up for it with its sweeping mountain ranges and nature reserves. Safe to say, just like everywhere else in Australia, Canberra promises panoramas of stunning landscapes on your road trips. 

Where to stay: Ramada by Wyndham Diplomat Canberra

On that note, if you’re travelling Down Under for a more relaxing getaway, stay near the city at Ramada by Wyndham Diplomat Canberra. An array of amenities lie near you: Canberra Railway Station, a go-kart track, a fresh food and Sunday food market, as well as bakeries and cafes. 

Travel to Australia

Where to stay: Wyndham Hotel Melbourne

Of course, you can’t mention road trips in Australia without mentioning the spectacular Great Ocean Road. However, before driving there, be sure to rediscover Melbourne first, where a thriving scene of coffee, graffiti streets, and bayside attractions reside. 

Wyndham Hotel Melbourne puts you right in the heart of the city, and is just walking distance from Melbourne Museum, National Gallery of Victoria, and Queen Victoria Market

Rekindle your love for the great outdoors in the adventure capital of the world — South Island’s Queenstown — where you’ll finally be able to tick bungee jumping and skiing off your bucket list! Aside from adrenaline-pumping fun throughout the year, road trips in campervans also mean mountains, lakes, and glaciers spanning on for miles — sure to satisfy even the most picky traveller. 

In North Island, no city masters wining and dining as well as Wellington. The capital city is also known as the culinary and craft beer capital of the country, where you’ll find award-winning restaurants and an impressive coffee and wine scene.

Approximately 2,600km from New Zealand lies the South Pacific archipelago of Fiji — home to more than 300 islands. Think of Fiji as the eastern counterpart of the Maldives within the Asia Pacific region, where lagoons, beaches, and impressive landscapes are abundant. 

That being said, if a city life of traffic and skyscrapers are what you’re used to, then a holiday in Fiji might be just the thing you need. 

Where to stay: Ramada Suites By Wyndham Wailoaloa Beach Fiji
