Top 3 Asian Destinations for the Baby Boomers  

Being in your Golden Years is a great opportunity to relax, unwind and reward yourself for all the hard work that you have done for so many years.  One of the best ways to do all these is to travel.  If you want to explore a new culture, experience new adventures and is budget-friendly at the same time, Asia is the best place for you.

Here are my Top 3 recommendations for your next vacation:

  1. India

India is a diverse country with rich cultural heritage and a very unique travel destination that you should visit at least once in your lifetime.  It is the home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal.

If you want a country where you can immerse in sacred and spiritual influence, India is a country where you can explore different religions and enjoy some spiritual travel tours.

India also has a high-regard for seniors and tourists alike.  As a senior tourist, you are entitled to avail different senior travel discounts in food chains, transportation and hotels.

  1. Japan

Despite of it being a bit more expensive compared to Asian countries, Japan is definitely a fascinating place to visit.  It is a country of great contrasts because of its ancient temples and futuristic tourism experience.

And of course, who doesn’t love authentic Japanese cuisine?  Tokyo, which is Japan’s mega city, is said to be one of the world’s capital for dining.  There are 160,000 restaurants to choose from to keep your stomach happy during your stay in Japan.

For me, the best time to visit the country is during the months of April to May because this is the time where the beautiful cherry blossoms will be in full bloom.

  1. Philippines

As what their tourism slogan says – “It’s More Fun in the Philippines”, you will for sure enjoy your tropical vacation in the country.  From its beautiful beaches to its historical scenic spots and various festivals, Philippines is now emerging as one of the most sought after destinations in Southeast Asia.

Aside from its tourism, Filipino people are also known for their kindness and hospitality to everyone who visits.  If you are 60 and above, you will enjoy the perks of being a senior because in the Philippines,  there are a lot of “senior citizen privileges” such as special lanes in establishments and designated seats in public transportation.
