Travelling Asia? Fantastic decision. But where to start planning a southeast Asia trip?

We’ve travelled all throughout Asia and discovered each country is different in its own unique way.

From exploring temples in Thailand, to eating strawberries and cream in the lush green tea fields of Malaysia or swimming with graceful whale sharks and sea turtles in the Philippines there is so much to see in southeast Asia.
