Southeast Asia is renowned for its tropical forests and powdery sand beaches. There are a lot of outdoor activities to choose from in this archipelago blessed with rich flora and fauna and diverse cultures. Some of these activities are not just fun to do but are also guilt-free with environmental concerns. 

 

Here is a list of eco-friendly things to do in the tropical paradise of Southeast Asia.

 

Volcano Exploration in the Philippines

 

In case you’re searching for an eco-friendly experience, making a trip to the thickly populated city of Manila in the Philippines isn’t commonly at the highest point of most travelers’ rundown. Consisting of 17 cities with a population of a staggering 12 million residents, it is additionally home to Taal Lake and Volcano Island. Just south of Metro Manila, you can effortlessly book a Taal Volcano day trip to traverse this historical crater.

Home to Komodo National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of only a handful couple of spots on the planet where you can visit more than 4,000 Komodo winged serpents in their regular natural surroundings. You can explore the parks and do some light trekking and a little swimming. 

 

If you want to level up, consider going on a Komodo National Park 2-Day Cruise onboard an Indonesian boat. Aside from Komodo, you will visit a portion of the lesser-explored islands, like Sunda and Kanawa.

Bug Adventure in Bangkok

 

Bangkok has remarkable notoriety for being an adventurous place where you can set yourself out to eat an enormous roach or a grasshopper from sold in the streets. In spite of the fact that this is the stuff that extraordinary Instagram shots are made of, it’s not commonly perceived as a genuine culinary choice. 

 

Insects In The Backyard is one Bangkok eatery that is attempting to change this notion by being the first fine dining restaurant to serve edible bug in Thailand. They are not kidding about lifting the status of “frightening little creature” cooking and acquainting it with the majority as a suitable option in contrast to conventional sources of protein.

It is their passionate goal to represent “insect cuisine” as a possible option for a protein source. They handle issues identified with globalization, overpopulation and environmental change by working straightforwardly with ranchers to reap bugs in a practical and clean way. 

 

You can jump heedlessly into indulgence with Giant Water Beetle and Crab Ravioli, Potato Espuma with Smokey Bacon Flavored Bamboo Caterpillars, Tiramisu with Silkworm Powder or simply settle for a Daiquiri with Red Ants.

Monkeying In Malaysia

 

One of the most famous ecotourism destinations in Malaysia is Taman Negara, which actually means “national park”. One of the oldest tropical rainforests on the planet, it is famous for the uncommon mammals that live in its protective shelter. You will even locate a perplexing walkway framework that enables you to tour the top of the woods without exasperating the inhabitants with your presence.

Make time to visit the Semenggoh Wildlife Center, as they work to restore harmed or caught creatures, for the most part, orangutans. This is a one of a kind chance to get very close and interact with the apes during their eating sessions, and you’ll see other wild creatures and endangered species en route.

Get Lost in Laos

 

Settled along the Mekong River, the different atmosphere of the city of Vientiane holds an agreeable community and a mixed and energetic streetfood scene. 

 

Everything comes to pass at a restful pace, and it’s a mystical spot that has figured out how to avoid the frantic race to “modernize”. Rather, it grasps its history, condition, and customs with a courageous approach to social identity. 

 

It’s anything but difficult to travel on foot or on a bike, and you can’t resist the urge to roam the dusty roads and try the numerous items from the food stalls along the waterway banks at night. 

 

Location is important, and remaining at the Riverside Boutique Resort places you in the focal point of everything while at the same time giving you a perfect vantage point to see the stream, sanctuaries, and destinations like the Buddha Park of Xieng Khuan.
