Travelling in Asia
Budgets for visiting this part of the world vary greatly as destinations such as Hong Kong, Japan and Macau do have expensive accommodation in the larger cities and reasonably priced flights. However a trip to Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam offers cheaper accommodation however in general more expensive flights.
Many people choose to backpack around South East Asia on a shoestring budget. This is because its safe, easy to get about and there are an abundance of travellers doing exactly this. A popular route is Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and through the temples of Angkor Wat. Thereafter it is back to Thailand, where people head south to party in the islands before making for Malaysia and Singapore.
If backpacking is not your thing then Southeast Asia, is home to plenty of high class resorts, quality hotels, world class restaurants and all you need for a luxury holiday on a budget.
