Solo travel experience

I spent a solitary 4.5 months traveling around Southeast Asia and visited Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Bali, and I enjoyed them all. I would definitely recommend Cambodia. Especially the Koh Rong islands - they are geographically close to the popular Thai islands, but they are much less spoiled and amazing thanks to sections of white beaches and crystal blue ocean!

Group travel experience

I just returned after 2.5 months in Southeast Asia (Thailand -> Cambodia -> Vietnam -> Bali -> Thailand), which is practically what you are doing. I can initially say that it was absolutely amazing and I felt very safe the whole time (an 18-year-old solo female), although I spent a lot of time on organised group tours, which greatly facilitated the entire experience.

Solo travel experience

I loved Vietnam (my favorites are the Mekong Delta, Hoi An and Ha Long Bay (you can live on the islands there)) and Sumatra (check out Lake Maninjau and the orangutan sanctuary in Bukit Lawang). Don't book too far in advance, that way you can stay longer in the places you will love and vice versa.

Solo travel experience

Southeast Asia is the perfect place for solo backpacking trips. Everyone is so friendly in hostels and open to meeting new people. I would recommend occasionally staying at party hostels, because the people staying there are usually very friendly and open to meeting people and having fun! I was traveling for 3 months and here are my main points: - Bali (Canggu and Ubud), Gili Trawangan (island near Bali), - Thailand (Chang Mai, Pai, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Phangan) - Cambodia (Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Kampot, Koh Rong) - Vietnam (Ha Long Bay, Hoi An)

Solo travel experience

I've been traveling all over Southeast Asia for over 6 months! My travel plan: Thailand > Cambodia > Vietnam > Laos. I've met a lot of solo travelers backpacking through Southeast Asia and they are thrilled with every minute. There's so much to do, affordable for any budget, and it's really one of the most magical places on Earth.

Solo travel experience

I loved Thailand and Vietnam. I traveled around Thailand by myself. I visited Phuket, Phi Phi, and Koh Sok. I also did a tourist trip through Vietnam from south to north in 2 weeks. I found that both of these countries are easy to travel in. They are very tourist-oriented.
