Taking you to the finest spots in the area, the Mount Fuji Day Tour is an awesome opportunity to see one of the most iconic natural wonders of Japan. You'll also get to visit the picturesque eight ponds of Oshino Hakkai, formed from the melted ice of Mount Fuji itself!

When it's a little cold out, you'll get to warm up with a nice hot cup of matcha tea, which will be served during your visit to Lake Kawaguchi. To end the day, you'll get to do some shopping at Gotemba Premium Outlets, where you'll be able to satisfy all your retail needs at discounted prices.

2. Go on a day tour from Nami Island to 'Petite France', the 'Garden of Morning Calm', and experience the Gangchon Rail Bike in Gangwon Province, South Korea

Depending on which package you choose, you'll be able to see some of the most serene sights that South Korea has to offer. Nami Island was famously used as the setting of hit Korean drama, 'Winter Sonata'. Perhaps, you can also go looking for your Korean oppa there as well. ;)

Petite France on the other hand is a theme park made to look like a typical French village. Complete with traditional French architecture, you'll feel like you've left South Korea entirely. If you're looking to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet, the Garden of Morning Calm is the perfect place to be. For those who want to sweat it out a little, the Gangchon Rail Bike will really get your heart racing, without all the intensities of a traditional workout. 

Here are the details:
Date: Year-round
Location: Gangwon Province, South Korea
Price: Starting from RM164 (Adults), RM136 (Children aged 3 to 11 years old)
Inclusive of: Roundtrip bus transport, professional tour guide, and lunch (vegetarian option available)

For something even more unique, you'll even get to watch a train pass through the middle of a bustling market at the Maeklong Railway.

Make your way through an epic landscape of limestone pillars and tiny islets on a traditional junk boat. With plenty of seafood aboard, you won't have to worry about lunch either! Though it's nice to explore the beauty of Ha Long Bay on a junk boat, it's even nicer to go where YOU want to go. With a kayak tour in open waters, now you can.

If that isn't enough for you, you can even explore Thien Cung Cave, also known as the 'Heavenly Cave'. It's said that the cave used to be the ancient residence of the Dragon King and his beautiful bride. Legend has it that their wedding was held in the cave itself, with guests consisting of gods, genies, fairies, and other dragons. 

Here are the details:

Location: Quang Ninh Province, Vietnam
Price: RM159 (Adults), RM126.39 (Children aged 4 to 8 years old)
