When to Go Where in the First Half of the Year

Many people are asking us the best time to visit Asia and where to visit. We at Westhill Consulting Travel and Tours have listed some of the best places to go for a whole year long. You may use this list for next year or start your country hopping right away.

January - Unawatuna, Sri Lanka

If you are looking for a summer getaway in the month of January, then, Unawatuna is the best place for you to visit. While the calm water and smaller waves don't make for good surfing, Unawatuna is the best pick for swimming and a family-friendly beach.

February - Langkawi, Malaysia

Asia in February is fantastic, assuming that you stay closer to sea level or take advantage of the tropical weather in Southeast Asia. We have reviewed a lot of places while much of East Asia is cold and snowy you’ll find plenty of sunshine and dry weather throughout most of Southeast Asia.

Duty-free Langkawi, Malaysia, is one of the busiest and most popular tourist islands in Southeast Asia. Despite the rampant development on some beaches, Langkawi remains green, beautiful, and was declared a World Geopark by UNESCO in 2007 -- attracting plenty of ecotourism. The island lures in plenty of Malays and international visitors with incredible natural beauty and easy accessibility from the mainland.

March - Koh Lanta, Thailand

Set in the Andaman Sea, the island of Koh Lanta, Thailand, is beautiful yet hardly developed. Hordes of island-bound tourists seem to skip over Koh Lanta on their way to neighboring Phuket or Koh Phi Phi and miss out on one of Thailand's best island destinations. While many people are filing complaints on the melting weather in some of Asia’s featured countries, Thailand is a good place to go in the cool breeze of March.

April - Bali Indonesia

Bali sits in the exotic reaches of the Indonesian archipelago. In comparison with the country’s capital, Jakarta, Indonesia, Bali is known for its captivating jungles and scenic beaches; Bali serves as a welcoming haven for tourists in search of mystical temples and seaside respite. As with any destination, determining the best time to travel to Bali depends on a wide variety of factors, including the personal preferences of individual visitors. April is one of the best months to enjoy popular places such as Bali before the summer crowds arrive.

May - Osaka, Japan

May is the best time to visit Japan with the fair weather appropriate in this country. You can visit Osaka Castle or Universal Studies in Japan when you are up to a different kind of fun and visit away from the beaches.

June - Incheon, South Korea

Arts, entertainment, fashion, history and nature: Incheon has it all (and more)! The city is undergoing an extravagant real estate development, with a projected finish date of 2015. It also expects a large number of visitors for its 2014 Asian Games. Visitors can peruse designer shops in the Bupyeong district, enjoy events at the Arts Centre or discover local history.
