Endless beaches, large leafy plants, robust tropical weather, and exotic fruits. Sounds like a luxury travel magazine perched on a bookshelf in the waiting room of a doctor’s office, right? Where is this magical place being described?
There are many possible answers to that question, so it requires a bit more information. You can also add: frenzied large cities with motorbikes jammed at every intersection during rush hour, and eager street vendors selling copious amounts of vegetables, juices, grilled meats, and fish, while children leave school in their obligatory uniforms. Only one part of the world checks all of the boxes for this, and that is Southeast Asia.
