Klook unveils best Asian destinations to maximize weekend getaways

Published on : Tuesday, March 26, 2019

The rise of affordable accommodation and low-cost carriers has made weekend hops more accessible than ever, opening up a world of adventures throughout the region. But sometimes, a ‘quick’ getaway can be derailed by traffic, construction or unreliable trains to and from the airport. When you only have two or three days to spend in a destination, there’s no time to waste. According to Klook’s airport-to-city survey (press release attached) the transit time required to reach a destination from the airport can be more grueling than you might expect with the most sluggish route taking up to 85 minutes to travel 8.9 kilometers between the airport and the city.

 

 

 

To help time-strapped travelers maximize their next trip, Klook recommends three of the best destinations in Asia for weekend getaways and what to do while you’re there.

 

  1. Siem Reap, 26 mins from airport to city

Siem Reap has become synonymous with ancient temples, excellent food and a lively nightlife scene. To explore the world-famous Angkor Wat temple complex by tuk-tuk, check out Klook’s Angkor Temples Grand Circuit Private Tour. Travelers will wind through Preah Khan, Neak Pean, Eastern Mebon and Ta Som Temples, with the option to add either the Banteay Srei temple or Kbal Spean archaeological site to the itinerary. After a full day of temple tours, wind down at Origins Spa Siem Reap with a body scrub and a relaxing aromatherapy massage.

  1. Kuala Lumpur, 30 mins from airport to city

Kuala Lumpur promises an ultra-efficient weekend getaway, thanks to a convenient metro system that will whisk you from one side of the city to the other. Get a feel for what KL’s all about with Klook’s Kuala Lumpur Culture and Heritage experience. The five-hour tour will immerse travelers the city’s diverse cultures with visits to Buddhist, Hindu and Taoist temples, a browse through the Central Market, and a stop in Chinatown to try some tasty snacks. The following day, get outta town for another perspective. The popular Kuala Lumpur Suburbs and Batu Caves offers an opportunity to experience the countryside, visit Malay villages, see a traditional Batik factory and hike up to the famous Batu Caves.

 

  1. Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport), 40 mins from airport to city

Bangkok is a popular weekend destination for good reason: there’s an immense array of food, bars, art, markets, spas, and cultural experiences to choose from. For something a little different, tap into your competitive side with Boxing King Muay Thai Classes. In these classes, you’ll learn the ins and outs of this popular sport from the best trainers in town. After you’ve worked up a sweat? Soothe your sore muscles at one of Bangkok’s fantastic spas. You’ll be spoiled for choice with Klook’s vast selection of Bangkok spas.
