    Where the Mexicans have salsa sauce, Laotians have jaew mak len. This spicy, sweet and slightly smoky sauce is best enjoyed with sticky rice, raw vegetable like cucumbers and crispy chips. It prominently features tomatoes as a main ingredient, along with chillies, garlic and—as you probably may have already guessed—fish sauce.

  • Mount Merapi

    Mount Merapi

    To See

    Arguably one of the most famous features of Indonesia, Mount Merapi is an active volcano that is recognised as a Decade Volcano. This certification was earned due to its substantial history of continuous eruptions. It is possible to climb the mountain, but this should be done with approval from authorities and in the presence of a qualified guide. If climbing is not an activity you particularly enjoy, however, it is still possible to admire the volcano’s magnificence from fairly close proximity.

  • Chilli Crab

    Chilli Crab

    To Eat

    To many Singaporeans, this seafood dish best captures the city-state’s passion for food and flavours. Its main constituent is mud crabs, stir-fried in a marriage of tomato and chilli sauces. While it is commonly enjoyed on its own, it also closely complements steamed white rice. And no, it is not necessarily as spicy as its name implies!

  • Bayon Temple

    Bayon Temple

    To See

    Proudly facing the world from within the city of Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple–or Prasat Bayon–is second to only the Angkor Wat in terms of its popularity. The complex, which was built between the 12th and 13th centuries, is home to over 2000 large carvings of faces that are spread across its 54 towers. The temple is also known for its lack of a surrounding wall, which is a peculiar trait for a Cambodian temple.
