Beyond Thailand & Vietnam, This Southeast Asian Nation Deserves to be Explored!
This Wednesday Post: Explore a hidden gem in Southeast Asia, dive into the world under water in Maldives, know about a spooky park in the heart of Bombay, and get ready for Ziro Music Festival.
Although I call myself an ardent traveler, I've been snoozing on a hidden gem – not once, not twice, but for multiple times! I've already made two trips to Vietnam and three to Thailand, but I’ve been quite oblivious towards this tiny nation tucked in between - but as I started researching, I went bonkers!
Well yeah, I'm taking about Laos - also known as the 'Land of a Million Elephants'!
This is a land of breathtaking natural wonders, a culture so opulent it practically drips gold, and locals who radiate such warmth that you'll feel like you're basking in a cozy hug!
In the Spotlight:
Hop Off to Maldives: It’s Time to Swim With Sharks & Stingrays!
I still remember the very first time I took the plunge into the deep blue for some scuba diving magic. It was like stepping into a whole new world!
Imagine who wonderful it can be, to be surrounded by a squad of fishes, chill turtles, and the coolest corals in town. It's basically a teleportation to an underwater universe!
If you've been dreaming about a date with the ocean, guess what? Your time has come! Splash into crystal-clear waters, mingle with sharks and stingrays (yeah, you read that right), ride the waves with dolphins, and live that authentic Maldivian life.

What to watch this weekend!
I recently watched this cutest flick ever - "A Tourist's Guide to Love" on Netflix, which wonderfully reignited a flood of memories from my voyages in Vietnam.
The narrative revolves around a travel executive who intriguingly embarks on a covert mission to delve into the intricacies of the tourist industry in Vietnam. In the midst of this fascinating journey, she becomes entwined in a tale of adventure and romance, all while forging a deep connection with her Vietnamese expat tour guide.
