If you're looking to make some long-term investments but aren't sure which shares to buy, then exchange-traded funds (ETFs) could be the answer.

That's because ASX ETFs allow investors buy groups of shares from all corners of the world in one easy investment.

But which ETFs might be top long-term options for investors? Two that could be worth considering when the market reopens next week are listed below:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ASX ETF for buy and hold-focused investors to look at next week is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF.

As you might have guessed from its name, this ETF provides investors with exposure to the tigers of the Asian region. These are the Asian equivalent of tech giants like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

Among its holdings are giants including Alibaba, Infosys, JD.com, Kakao, Meituan, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent.

In respect to the latter, Tencent is the multinational technology company best known for its massively WeChat app. At the last count, the super app had over a billion users. They use the app for text messaging, voice messaging, food ordering, shopping, video conferencing, video gaming, and payments.

Global X Battery Tech & Lithium ETF (ASX: ACDC)

If you believe that electric vehicles are the future and want to gain exposure to this trend, then it could be worth looking at the ETFS Battery Tech & Lithium ETF.

The fund manager, Global X, notes that ACDC invests in companies throughout the lithium cycle, including mining, refinement and battery production, cutting across the traditional sector and geographic definitions.

Among its holdings are the likes of Allkem Ltd (ASX: AKE), BYDMineral Resources Limited (ASX: MIN), Nissan, Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS), Renault, and Tesla.
