Travel Packages for  Wild places to vacation in Asia

If you're like me, a trip abroad wouldn't seem complete without experiencing the local wildlife. As Asia is a region steeped in rainforests, mountains, and national parks, you can expect to find a variety of exotic species - making it an ideal destination for animal lovers. Unfortunately, many of these animals have become tourist attractions and, as a result, are unethically exploited by companies for profit.

Elephant rides and selfies with psychedelic tigers are just two examples of this. Fortunately, Asia is also home to many ethical animal experiences, where travelers can enjoy intimate and close encounters in environments where animal welfare is not compromised.

Here are the top wild places to vacation in Asia

Meet orangutans in Sumatra, Indonesia

  • There are only two places left where you can see wild orangutans: Borneo and Sumatra. Both destinations offer an excellent opportunity to meet orangutans in their natural habitat, so it is up to you which one you might prefer to visit. I think the Sumatran orangutan is prettier, having longer and brighter orange hair than its Borneo cousins. As such, Sumatra wins for me. So, get out of the zoos and embark on a journey through the jungle of Sumatra to find orangutans in their natural habitat.
  • All organized walking orangutan excursions start from Bukit Lawang, a small village on the outskirts of Gunung Leuser National Park. Covering an area of ??nearly 8000 square kilometers, Gunung Leuser National Park is huge. Your guide will guide you through this vast emerald forest to track down the orangutans - teaching you their behavior and pointing out other wildlife you may encounter.

Explore the biodiversity in Taman Negara National Park, Malaysia

  • The Taman Negara is Malaysia's largest national park and one of the largest rainforests in the world, boasting one of the most wildlife-rich habitats in Southeast Asia. This 4,343 square kilometers national park is home to Sumatran tigers, rhinos, and cloudy leopards, although sightings are sporadic. Chances are, however, that you should look at some of the 400 villas in the park. In addition, the garden often sees leaf monkeys, miracle langurs, large cows, tapirs, lizards, and snakes.
  • A series of hides are set up on stilts within the park that overlook critical water wells, giving you a good chance of spotting some of the local wildlife.  Don't forget to raise your eyes because the canopy is where you'll likely see most life, including monkeys, giant squirrels, and colorful birds. You will not be able to miss the hornbill, One of the park's most noisy and recognizable residents.

Spot dolphins in the Mekong River, Cambodia

  • The Irrawaddy dolphin is a river dolphin found in parts of southern Asia. They inhabit large swaths of the Mekong River in Cambodia and Laos and can also be found in the enclaves of India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar.
  • They resemble beluga whales and are incredibly distinctive, with flat, curved face and a mouth that seems to be smiling. Because of this, they have earned the excellent nickname "The Smiling Face of the Mekong River." The best places to spot the Irrawaddy dolphin in Cambodia - is about 15-20 kilometers north of Krati, near a small village called Kambi. Here, a small handful of local sailors will be waiting to escort you to the water in a longboat, where they will cut the engine so you can watch the dolphins in action.

Find dragons in Komodo National Park, Indonesia

  • As the name suggests, Komodo National Park is home to the endangered Komodo dragon. This region of Indonesia the islands of Komodo, Flores, Rinca, and Gili Montag - is the only place where Komodo dragons live in the wild.
  • These magnificent reptiles can grow upto 3 meters in length and weigh up to 70 kilograms. Encountering them in wild is an exhilarating experience. Opt to take a trekking tour in search of this remarkable orchid, as local guides should be able to track it down. You may also come across species such as wild boars, monkeys, yellow parrots, and eagles on your way.

Visit The Gibbon Project, Thailand

  • On a mission to save the people of Gibbon in Thailand from tourist exploitation, The Gibbon Project is a beautiful getaway located in Khao Pra Theaw, Phuket.
