When you try your best and you don’t succeed…” That’s how most Singaporeans felt about camping in front of our screens even before 10am (yes, even us at KKday!) for Coldplay tickets, only to end up in a virtual waiting room and not getting our hands on our concert tickets. Fret not, Singapore is not the only Asian country Coldplay will be in for their A Head Full of Dreams Tour — here are 4 other countries you can get your Coldplay eargasms while satisfying the wanderluster in you.

1. Manila, Philippines

Manila, the 2nd stop for Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Asia, is the capital of Philippines. Although Manila is more developed and doesn’t have natural beauties like other islands in Philippines, it has tons of character and a special charm that would leave you asking for more.


If you’re looking for natural sights n Manilahead to Taal Volcano — the smallest volcano in the world. If you’re looking to stay in the city, pay a visit to Mall of Asia (MOA); the 11th biggest mall in the world, Mall of Asia (MOA) has every store you imagine. Doesn’t the mall just screams shopping paradise?

If you decide to head to Manila for Coldplay’s concert, there’s definitely be more than enough activities for you before your concert. Looking for more travel activities in Manila?

Taipei is the 3rd stop for Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Asia, and it’s a city Singaporeans are more than familiar with. Known to have one of the best nightlife scene in Asia, Taipei is definitely a go-to for all party animals out there looking to have one hell of a night.

Foodies (as most Singaporeans are) would find heaven in Taipei’s night markets. Chicken cutlets the size of your face, beef cubes that melts in your mouth — just the mere mention of these Taiwanese street snacks would have left you salivating.

As for couples, enjoy some alone time stargazing on Yangmingshan on a romantic and peaceful night. In the day, Taipei provides many tourist activities; from horse riding on Tamsui Beach to enjoying Taipei’s cityscape on Taipei 101 Observatory, you’ll never run out of travel activities should you decide to catch a Coldplay concert in Taipei.

Seoul, the historical center of South Korea, is the 4th stop of Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Asia. The only other concert, other than Singapore’s, that’s held over a weekend, Seoul is perfect for a weekend getaway all whilst catching your favourite band in action.

Seoul has a place for everyone. If you’re a culture lover, don’t forget Gyeongbokgung Palace, the iconic point of interest of Seoul. The guard changing ceremony takes place Gyeongbokgung Palace‘s main entrance daily (except on Monday). Bring a camera to snap some precious memories!

A single lady feeling adventurous or a little naughty? Check out Mr. Show, Seoul’s only male strip show. A known shopaholic? Famed Korean cosmetic brands such as The Face Shop and Etude House line the streets of Myeong-Dong, selling beauty products at a fraction of the price you get in Singapore.
