Nothing can beat a nice beach vacation with crystal clear waters, gorgeous blue skies, and stunning white sand. However, this is also the same reason why most beaches get overcrowded, spoiling the whole beach experience because everyone wants to experience it. But worry no more, because here are five amazing crowd-free beaches in Asia that will satisfy your cravings.
Koh Rong, Cambodia
This hidden gem is located off Cambodia's coast in the Gulf of Thailand. According to CNN, both the American and French "Survivor" TV shows took place on this island but the area still remains unspoiled, unlike other beach destinations. Travelers can either enjoy its 23 pristine beaches or its lush green forests. The prices of food and accommodations are very backpacker-friendly so it's definitely a place for everyone.
Located off the west coast of Malaysia, Pangkor is a humble island that boasts of its traditional houses, old-fashioned way of life, and untouched beaches. Most of the people that live here still fish and build boats for a living so you'll not only experience the island's attractions but also its culture and way of life.
Lampi is synonymous with untainted rainforests, hidden beaches, and rich wildlife. The island is a vast ecosystem of diverse animal species from hornbills, manatees, pangolins, to sea turtles. But aside from that, it's also home to an ethnic group called the Moken "sea gypsies." It's a virgin paradise that exudes culture, tradition, and the beauty of nature.
Andaman Islands, India
Travelers can enjoy the simple tropical life of this backwater island. When you wake up, you'll be greeted by cows, chickens, pigs, and other animals. You also have a chance to meet the local fishermen at Corbyn's Cove Beach. If you want to experience its crystal clear waters and rich marine life, go to Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park.
Palawan is one of the many natural treasures of the Philippines. According to Lonely Planet, it's an island with stunning attractions like the Tubbataha Reeds Natural Park and the Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River which are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
