Asia is the largest continent in the world, and this is certainly reflected in the amount of islands there are to go and visit. Indonesia alone has 20,000 islands! Their culture, weather and scenery are all contributors to why Asia draws in so many globetrotters. But for any aspiring traveller to the East, where to begin? Here are the top ten Asian islands that you should plan to go and see.
Langkawi is a beautiful green island just off the coast of Malaysia. The island has some of the most incredible white sand beaches the world can offer, a perfect retreat for relaxing. When you are finished recharging, you can also go and witness the incredible sights from the bridge towering over the jungle tree tops.
2. Pom Pom Island
This tiny island is set in the Celebes Sea, so is a great place to spot turtles in their natural habitat. This, and the fact it is right on the Coral Reef makes it a very desirable place for keen scuba divers to go and visit.
4. Komodo Island
The Maldives are an all time favourite for honeymooners. White sandy beaches and complete isolation from reality makes this the ultimate romantic destination. The islands are located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, completely secluded! Seriously affected by rising sea levels, this destination is a precious one, as it might not be around for much longer!
7. Havelock Island
8. Koh Tao
9. Phi Phi Islands
10. Sri Lanka
