Travel Bloggers present the Best Beaches in Asia Pacific

A summary of the “My favourite beach in Asia Pacific” round-up on allacrossasia

The German langauge knows a term called “Fernweh“. This word describes the longing for places far away, the desire to break out of the daily routine and travel to new destinations. Especially in the European winter time, when days are short and cold, people like to dream themselves away to exotic places where it’s warm and life’s easy.
