ASEAN refers to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations that was established in 1967 as a political and economic organisation to bring countries in Southeast Asia closer. “Southeast Asia, feel the warmth?is the slogan of destination ASEAN that encompasses not just the tropical climate, but is representative of ASEAN’s rich cultures and its hospitable people.

Destination ASEAN is a melting pot of cultures that have entwined with one another and exchanged various elements and practices from one another. Yet, it is interesting to note that the various cultures still maintain their distinct identities, making the region replete with diversity, mystery and beauty. The region is also home to intriguing contradictions, between the new and the old, modernity and traditions, cosmopolitanism and rustic cultural heritage. Hence, ASEAN offers an immense amount of exploration with countless secrets and surprises waiting to be unveiled.
