Malaysia Travel Guide

Malaysia has much to offer the senior traveller. From relaxing beach breaks to rainforest adventures, it provides a relatively safe environment for the holiday of one’s choice. English is widely spoken. The country often ranks high on lists of best places to retire to, an indication of its generally welcoming approach to older foreign visitors.

Vietnam Travel Guide

These days Vietnam is high on the list of recommendations for first or second-time visitors to Asia because it is a country with many natural attractions, UNESCO heritage sites, colonial shopping precincts, and value-for-money beach resorts.

Japan’s Beautiful Wisteria Gardens

Japan’s wisteria flowering season is from about mid-April to mid-May, immediately following the sakura (cherry blossom) season, so if you’ve not been able to make it to Japan to see the cherry blossoms, then the wisteria flowering season provides an excellent substitute.

Singapore Travel Guide

For first-time senior travellers to Asia, there is no better place to start than the island state of Singapore. It’s quieter and more orderly than Hong Kong, and provides an introduction to Asian culture whilst still being very ‘western’ in terms of the number of people who speak English, the amount of English signage around the island, and the availability of familiar western food.

Hiking for Seniors on Penang Island

Many aged people are reaching the base camp of Mount Everest with sheer willpower and focused determination. However, not all seniors can go that far but many can enjoy the beauty of nature hiking in Malaysia and have a memorable experience.

Japan Travel Guide

For first-time senior travellers to Asia, Japan is undoubtedly the number two choice as a safe and easy country to visit. In fact for seniors who may have difficulty coping with Singapore’s heat and humidity, Japan may be a better first choice because in spring and autumn, the climate in most parts of Japan is close to perfect.

Philippines Travel Guide

The Philippines is not a country that attracts a large number of senior citizen visitors, aside from those of Filipino descent. Media reports of extrajudicial killings of drug suspects, kidnappings and beheadings of foreign tourists by Islamic extremists, and Manila’s infamous air pollution and traffic jams are enough to frighten away even the most adventurous tourist.
