Three Months In South – East Asia

How far can you go in South East Asia, if you had 3 months?




Nice and comfortable start point

I often get asked for the “Ultimate” South-East Asian itinerary. Where to go if time is not limited? as well as “how far could you keep going, on the same trip”.

Well, I think, the “ultimate” single journey through South East Asia, would be as follows;

Start in Singapore; Bus to Mersing via Johor Bahru; Ferry to Tioman Island, Bus back to Malacca, then KL, Bukit Fraser, Cameron highlands and onto Penang.


Ferries, ferries then ferries

Ferry to Langkawi, onward to Ko Lipe, Ko Ngai, Ko Lanta, Ko Phi Phi and then finally give boats a rest for a while at Phuket.

Minibus to Krabi, though to Khao Lak, Ferry detour out to the Similan Islands, back to Khao Lak, onto Khao Sok and the Surat Thani.

Ferry to Ko Samui, Ko Phangan and Ko Tao, then ferry on to Chumporn.

Train to Hua Hin, and then Bangkok and Ayuthaya.


See some sites

Minibus to Pattaya, and Ko Samet, then onward to Ko Chang.

Minibus from there to Cambodia to Siam Reap then Phenom Penh and Sihanoukville.

Ferry to Phu Quoc in Vietnam, boat transfer via Mekong Delta to Ho Chi Mihn City.


See some beaches!

Finally, head up the Vietnamese coast, via Mu Nie, Nga Trang, Hoi An and Hue

Train to Hanoi, and then bus and junk to Halong Bay and Catba Island.

Complete this sucker, and you will never want to visit another island again, for as long as you live! Any feedback on oversights would be appreciated!!


…and finish in Halong Bay

The above article is a reprint from a blog I no longer keep online, that was attached to This blog became unsastainable, and I recently decided to take it down.

I may change them from thier initial format, add pictures and update relivant information.

I love Vietnamese food, as a rule. However, their is some stuff even I wouldn’t go for! See if there is anything on this menu, from very small and unclean looking restaurant in Chau Doc, in the Mekong Delta, close to the Cambodian border.


Sea Star Resort

A hotel in Thailand (Ko Lanta) and Nepal (Pokhara) that we had found to be great finds for under $40 per night. (Link back to Part 1).

I have selected hotels that are under the $40 per night level, as this is the expense level I try to keep to, when long term traveling. This amount is about where I feel I need be, to get some comfort and character, but also be sustainable for long term travel.
