Collectively eleven countries make up Southeast Asia, those being Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The region is characterized by its impressive diversity in religion, history and culture, and is a key area for trade and financial services.
Whilst the dreamy destination is a hotspot for travellers and international visitors, a large number of expats and their families are drawn to the area for work commitments. Southeast Asia promises those moving to the region a lower cost of living, a range of job opportunities, on average a warmer climate, a range of activities and attractions to visit. Stunning beaches, diverse experiences, and rich cultures are all major drawcards for international travellors.
Approximately 37 unique UNESCO World Heritage sites are located in Southeast Asia, presenting opportunities to explore cultural landmarks, temples, and natural wonders. Some of the most famous sites include Angkor Wat (Cambodia), Luang Prabang (Laos), Halong Bay (Vietnam) and Ayutthaya (Thailand).
