When planning a Round the World trip, there are loads of things to think about. Where to go, though, is usually tops on the list. There are always some destinations that are more popular than others when it comes to traveling long-term. They change with the times, of course, but one place that has been on the vagabonding radar for 40+ years is Southeast Asia.
Sure, those headier-than-thou backpackers might proclaim Southeast Asia as an over-touristy locale, and yes, you will find plenty of tourists there. But there’s a reason travelers keep flocking back. A few recent articles on BootsnAll’s Round the World Wednesday series highlighted travel in the ever-popular region. Check out these 12 Reasons Why Southeast Asia is the Best Place in the World for Backpackers. If you’re looking for practical advice – like highlights of each country and how to get around, then explore How to Plan an Extended Trip in Southeast Asia. The region really does have it all – from beaches to mountains to history to food – and all at rock bottom prices.
