A Southeast Asia Travel Guide: Everything You Should Know and Do

Are you planning an upcoming vacation? We know just the place.

If you’ve got your heart set on adventure, Southeast Asia travel may be just right for you. Read on and we’ll give you a rundown of the best spots you won’t want to miss.

Why Travel to Southeast Asia?

Southeast Asia is home to some of the world’s most scenic landscapes. It’s no secret why thousands of people choose to make the trip. 

Depending on where you depart from, the trip itself can make for a long flight path. You’ll want to book your travel far in advance to save on your air transportation. Alternatively, you can also scoop up last-minute travel deals.

If you’re departing from Australia, however, chances are you’ll enjoy a cheaper and quicker flight path. Regardless of where you’re coming from, don’t let the price or the travel time dissuade you.

Your flight will be by far the most expensive part of your trip. Hotels and meals are a mere fraction of the price you’d expect to see in America or Australia. In fact, we’ve heard many people say that the longer they spent on vacation, the more money they saved not being home.

The Philippines

The Philippines may not be the first place you think of on a list of Southeast Asian destinations, but it shouldn’t be ignored. While bustling Manila may be the most famous of Philipino cities, the Philippines has a diverse landscape to share.

The Philipino island of Boracay may very well be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. To reach it, you’ll need to take a short commuter flight and a small boat. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll sink your toes into white sand beaches and enjoy 4 and 5-star hotels that charge the same price as American motels.

Indonesia

Considering a trip to Indonesia? Bali may be the best place for you. 

If Bali fits in your travel plans, know that the area you choose to stay is important.

Looking for a party? Look at cities like Kuta or Seminyak. They’re home to lively nightlife, music, and beautiful beaches.

Looking to find your zen? Look no further than Ubud, home to amazing food, great shopping, and some of the best travel values you can imagine. 

Spend $20 at a local spa and you’ll leave feeling like royalty. Walk the streets where local vendors sell incredible street food for pennies.

Not up for a walk? Grab a scooter and buzz through the roads. At night, you’ll ride through streets lined with twinkling trees illuminated by glistening street lamps. 

Don’t be discouraged if you see rain in the forecast when researching your trip. It rains frequently in Bali, but the rain is very different than the kind you’ll experience in America.

Expect short bursts of thunderstorms that leave as quickly as they come. When rain decides to fall, just pull out a poncho or duck into a local spot for a drink. It’ll be over in no time!
