Seeking destination for healthy living, exercise, fresh fish and veggies, by the sea

Posted by Expateacher on 14/5/2016 at 08:34

I’m looking for a location and name of a hotel to holiday for July and August in south-east Asia to eat and live healthy and exercise. I’m looking for inexpensive and no frills. I also would like:

-to be right by the sea

-a gym nearby

-good places to go jogging

-inexpensive fresh fish and vegetables

-good massages available.

Can anyone recommend a country, specific location and hotel?Cheers.

Perhaps DaNang?

Was thinking Ko Lanta but July/August is a rough time due to rainy season. Ko Pha Ngan might work. When you say "fresh fish and vegetables" does that mean you want a room with a kitchen so you can cook yourself?

A kitchen would be nice but as long as there are cheap little restos around to buy cooked fresh fish would be fine. I have done two holidays 13 years ago at Koh Tao but never went to Ko Pha Ngan. I'll investigate that. Cheers.

I think you should visit Danang or Hoian to enjoy beach or hotel in here.

I really don't think you'd want to eat local fish on the Vietnam coast right now with the recent pollution poisoning

You might also check out the Khanom and Sichon area if you're looking for a real quiet area and don't mind renting a motorbike to get around -- lots of good seafood, several good and small guesthouses and resorts, and also there are quite a few small beach houses for rent by the month if you go there and have a look around. It's close to the piers in Don Sak for Ko Samui and Ko Pha Ngan so you could take shorter trips to the islands.

There's a kungfu retreat and meditation camp in Pai with all of the above requirements except for the sea! Hua Hin may be your next best bet, aside from the islands down south.
