While there aren’t many legal nude beaches in Asia, here are 4 places around Asia where you can bare it all during your getaway!

1. Asian Nudist Getaway – The Oriental Village, Thailand

This naturist resort is the first of its kind in Chiang Mai, and is no stranger to visitors going nude amongst the beautiful scenery of the village. The Oriental Village is located at the foot of the mountains and surrounded by the greenery of rice fields, with quaint cottages as accommodation for your stay.

Have a nudist wedding at Oriental Village for a truly unique experience. There are also activities abound including culture and heritage, nature and adventure trails. This is Chiang Mai after all. Unfortunately, you will have to cover your birthday suit when leaving the resort. Thailand is also filled with nudist beaches like Leela Beach in Koh Phangan and mountainous regions like Khao Yai National Park.

2. Asian Nudist Getaway – Gia Long Waterfall, Vietnam

A lesser known tourist spot, the Gia Long Waterfall sees plenty of nudists heading in for a refreshing dip after trekking through the humid jungle. And being hidden in the jungle of the Krong Ana area of the Dak Lak Province, Vietnam, you’ll have relative privacy while you’re skinny dipping too.

In fact there are several other smaller locations where taking a dip in the nude is permitted. Read this article for other top picks like Phu Quoc Island, Son Tra peninsula or Bach Ma Mountain.

3. Asian Nudist Getaway – Jimjilbang, South Korea

If you’re looking for a unisex spa treatment, Korea is not the place. Yet it is well known for its extravagant saunas called as jimjilbang. After washing yourself, you’ll take off your garments as you enter the relaxing and invigorating saunas. Some jimjilbang are very bare-bones, while others, like Dragon Hill Spa & Resort in Seoul are lavish, offering a variety of different health options.

At Dragon Hill, you can pick and choose between a traditional charcoal kiln, a pine tree firewood or a red clay pine tree sauna. You can also sweat it off in a Herbal Tonic Bath with ingredients such as ginseng, jasmine and citrous. While men and women bathe separately either in or out doors, you will be able to meet up with your better half afterward where you can watch TV, eat a meal or relax with a book. It’s not uncommon for people to spend an entire night exfoliating in a 24hr Korean jimjilbang, no need for a hotel room!

4. Asian Nudist Getaways – Onsen Baths, Japan

Probably the most obvious destination for a nudist getaway in Asia, head to the onsens of Japan for a relaxing experience with amazing views. There are plenty of natural hot springs all over the country, including the Noboribetsu Onsen nestled within the beautiful scenery of Hokkaido, as well as the Yumoto Onsen, located at the foot of of Mount Nantai, an extinct volcano in Nikko National Park.

While a true kon-yoku (mixed gender) onsen will be difficult to locate, they do exist in much more rural areas. So don’t bet on bathing with your loved one in Japan. There are some onsen like Takaragawa where bathing is mixed, but you will have to wrap yourself in a towel-like bathing garment when outside the water. In the non-coed onsen, much like the Korean jimjilbang, you will be able to meet up with your better half after you bath with members of the same sex.

If you prefer to keep your clothes on, here are some great staycation ideas for a relaxing weekend off.
