Three Less Known Exotic Paradises In Asia

Asia is a continent that offers many beautiful destinations to choose from. Many of them such as the ones from Thailand, the Maldives and Indonesia are well known. Therefore, today we want to highlight a few destinations which are not usually associated with the sun, sand and sea places in our minds, but they offer attractive corners of coastline and idyllic beaches just like the more popular countries.

Japan

Yunokawa is known for its hot springs. However, it also offers some great beaches with perfect charm to continue enjoying the relaxation. It can be very interesting to visit in winter as you can be bathing in the warm Onsen hot springs near a beach that is covered with snow. Another interesting destination is the island of Akajima of Kerama Islands in Okinawa. It is popular with the locals during summer, but foreign travelers are a rarity there, which is a plus for those fleeing from mass tourism. The beaches are pristine and usually only a handful of Japanese surfers can be found there. Also the locals are friendly and effusive.
