Southeast Asia is probably one of the best regions in the world to begin your travel adventure. Not only is it one of the cheapest destinations, it's also extremely safe and really easy to travel around, either by land, boat or air. This part of the world attracts millions of travellers each year with its impressive diversity in culture, religion and history.
No matter what it is you travel for or look for whilst travelling, you will be sure to find it throughout these lands. There is so much on offer from island hopping around Thailand, stepping back in time in Myanmar, visiting the largest religious monuments in the world in Cambodia, strolling through Malaysia's Unesco World Heritage of Penang, driving motorbikes through Vietnam, chilling out in spectacular waterfalls in Laos, or staying on some of the remote islands of Indonesia.
It is no wonder Southeast Asia has become a popular destination for backpackers around the globe. It truly does have it all.
