Update your travel-dar: ASIA 
By Anna Sarjeant. 

Travel radar. The world’s travel trends every globe-strutter should know about. This edition: ASIA.

1. Underwater dining in the Maldives
"In the Maldives, dine at the largest  all glass undersea restaurant in the world. Eat 5.8 metres below the surface; mesmerised by the vast array of marine life as you become the centre of attention for once! With only 10 tables you must book in advance."




2. Thailand's best kept secret 
Off-the-beaten track travel still exists in Thailand. Koh Chang is one of Thailand’s least developed islands: a beautiful slice of land covered in rainforest, mountain peaks and untouched beaches. In fact, so rugged is the terrain, not even McDonald’s dares to brandish its golden arches.

3. Wow-factor day clubs in Bali
Believe the hype, because Bali’s flashiest day club, OMNIA, is in a class all of its own. Upmarket and modern, with million-dollar views across the Indian Ocean, there’s an infinity pool, swim-up bar, cabanas and cliff deck, as well as Sake no Hana, a contemporary Japanese restaurant. 



4. Long transit? Hong Kong says relax. 
If you have a long wait at Hong Kong International Airport, check out ‘Relaxation Corner’ next to Gate 23 in Terminal 1. A sanctuary of quiet, this secret cove is free, open 24-hours and offers 12 complimentary lounge beds with individual charging facilities and WiFi. Well, hallelujah.

Don't be this guy!!


5. Opulence meets adventure in Cambodia
For a completely off the grid experience in Cambodia, Shinta Mani Wild is a luxury tented camp hidden within 400 acres of forest. Enjoy safari style tents tittering on the edge (or directly over) roaring rapids, and spend your days jungle trekking, river boating or joining a local chef for a jungle forage. Scour for wild fungi, plants and fruits to be used in your cooking class.


6. Stay in a Thai treehouse
Coax out your inner child at Tree House Villas, a luxury adults-only hideout on Thailand’s stunning Koh Yao Noi island. After crossing a suspension bridge to get to your two-tiered luxury treehouse, you’ll be met by elevated views across stunning Phang Nga bay. You’ll get your very own personal bar, plunge pool and a bath in the shape of a hammock. And yes, of course there’s a swing!
