We are heading to South East Asia first (original we know, but it’s somewhere we’ve wanted to explore for a while). Here we have signed up for a 30 day group tour. We booked this with the lovely people at STA. We are new to backpacking travel and thought this would be a great way to ease us into it and maximise our sightseeing. It will take us through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos.
There are mixed reviews about group tours, this is the only one we have booked so far. We thought we might as well judge them for ourselves. Once this tour is over we head to the Philippines for 30 days and then fly back into Bangkok. From here we have plenty of time to do our own exploring around Thailand before making our away down to Kuala Lumpur. Once we are there we’ll fly on to our next destination… Bali!!!
