It has been said over and over during this pandemic how traveling has been paused until the unforeseeable future or until a vaccine has been made. That said, the travel blues is at an all-time high especially for the many wanderlusts out there.

Thank God, however, for the power of the internet.

Through it, many of us can travel – virtually. Enough so, to at least keep the wanderlust in us at bay. Platforms such as Google Virtual Tour and YouTube make it that much more accessible to everyone, making even those who weren’t able to afford such travels to have a glimpse of some of these far-off and exotic places such as Southeast Asia.

Having said that, we list down our top 5 attractions from the best countries in Southeast Asia that are worth checking out even just virtually for now.

Yogyakarta – Yogyakarta is the capital city of Yogyakarta, a region on the Indonesian island of Java.
