Southeast Asia Travel

Southeast Asia travel is what we love and know best I think. We’ve spent years of our lives in this part of Asia and we want to share our know-how with you. Southeast Asia travel is mostly easy, there are well-worn tourist and backpacker tracks that have been created over decades by earlier generations of travellers. Tourists are well served in Southeast Asia, unless, of course, you manage to get off the beaten track, and that’s actually quite hard to do!

Best Vacation Spots in Southeast Asia

Traditional two-week vacations are big business in Southeast Asia. If you’re looking for a hotel or resort-based vacation in Southeast Asia you’re likely to consider Thailand’s beaches and islands, possibly Phuket, Krabi (Au Nang), Ko Samet or Ko Samui.

There are many other lovely beaches in Thailand, these examples are just popular picks.

In Vietnam, many holidaymakers enjoy the beaches at Danang, Hoi An, or Phu Quoc. Cambodia also has beaches, think Sihanoukville and Koh Rong.

Malaysia too, has beaches.

Langkawi is well known but there are other beaches and islands on Peninsular Malaysia and on the north coast of Borneo.

Indonesia has endless beaches and Southeast Asian holiday hotspots. Bali is probably the most popular judging by the amount of traffic we get to our Bali with kids post, it’s a family favourite.

Many other islands in Indonesia have beach resorts. Have you heard of Telunas Island? It’s in Indonesia but not far off the Singapore coast.

We’ve stayed there, it makes a great getaway from busy Singapore. Singapore too, has beaches. Sentosa Island is likely where you’ll want to be for a vacation, the island is packed with resorts and tourist attractions.
