From your clue, that you said: "in general region", so the airport should be somewhere around India and Australia.
The weather and surroundings look tropical.
Philippines and Vietnam and worse guesses as you said that the last guesses were better, so I look more west.
And found the airport from the ATC tower that matches the photo I've found.
