This deal is aimed at the young solo traveller as a lot of the hostels have dormitories and the areas I’ve chosen are lively and loud.

I haven’t included any checked in luggage as it increases the price significantly, however there are washing facilities available at most of the accommodation I’ve chosen. This trip is aimed at back packers.

There are plenty of other hostels and hotels available if you don’t fancy the ones I’ve chosen. The majority I’ve chosen are dormitories with shared accommodation, a few are private rooms with an en suite.

It is a fairly busy schedule, but you don’t have to follow it step by step, it is mainly a guide to follow.

You can book your ferry tickets for Koh Rong and Koh Phi Phi Don online or at Sihanoukville and Phuket, it is up to you, the prices are the same both online and in resort.

You can now do an E-Visa for Cambodia, it is worth doing as it is easier doing it online, however you won’t get a sticker in your passport, I learnt the hard way! It is considerably quicker through immigration though.

On the final night I’ve chosen a 6 hour sleep in one of the hotels in the airport, it is considerably cheaper than getting a regular hotel. If you want to cut the cost further and save yourself £41 you can forget the last hotel and catch some Zzz on the airport chairs!!

The best way getting from the airport to the hotels is taxi, Asia is very cheap for taxis. If you really want to cut costs, use the public transport in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok instead of getting a taxi.

The Norwegian flights to Singapore are around the same price from March through to June if these dates aren’t great for you.

Amazing job. Don't waste time if you have no ties and you are fed up with life. Go for it. Tell the boss (or anyone else trying to hold you back) to shove it up their a#se and head out. They would do it if they could. You live but once
I'm really missing the point but just a day or 2 in each country and all this running about?

Really sounds like if you actually do this you will need a holiday at the end of it!
Awesome.
I wish I could be as competent as you.
Pity the accommodation is probably not suitable for a 70 +.
Many thanks for all your hard work.
A great deal for anyone who wants to be raped and murdered in a remote jungle.

Seriously though, this is far too much travel for a one-month trip. There's barely a day without a journey. How are you even meant to explore? You'd be knackered, and one flight delay would royally mess you up. Why has this even been posted? No one will ever actually do this trip. It must have taken so long to compile...

It’s a bit risky going in August it’s the rainy season for the majority of places in this itinerary

No time to get complacent.
Love the sound of this.I really want to go back to koh samui
Awesome job!! Some people may think there's too much going on but if you're free and ready for some exploring, do it!
I always appreciate the effort with these posts! Good work
Would do this in a heartbeat. Lived on Samui for three years. Best time ever traveling around this part of the world. Enjoy, OP!
i could have done the trip, by the time i took to read this,,heat for the effort

Hush now
If only I could get the time off work.. Saying that I've only just got back from a 2 1/2 week trip to Vietnam (which was awesome btw).

But good work on all the research and planning!
That seems like an insane amount of travel to cram into one month. Even though I personally do like holidays where you're out doing things most of the time, I feel like you wouldn't really have time to explore the areas if you're only staying for a day or so.
Having been many times to this part of the world.....it's awesome!

But for an itinerary like this you really need 2 months ....that is just not viable in my eyes, you will be very tired and not see all the good stuff.

However...if you have the energy....then enjoy.
heat for the effort, but as others have said, you'd be much better off spending twice as much time in half the destinations and getting to explore, etc.
Heat for the price and the effort, but I get bored of my own company in about 20 minutes, which is around 19 more than most other people
A lot of travelling, good if your body can handle so much, good find. But would rather spend time on a beach in Phu Quoc or Phuket
seems a bit intense!
Folk interested in this should subscribe to 'Gabriel Travellers' YouTube channel. He in on a round the world trip and in Athens at the moment.

Excellent content.

God speed everyone.

Until a month later when your back with no job and money!
lovely, now i just need to covince my wife to stay at home.
Ideal for those who want to brag “I have been there” and pad out an Instagram account with 50 photos taken within a 20 hour period. However for everyone else, half the number of places visited and throw in the odd hotel and it makes it a much better experience because you’ll see more of each destination and feel a little more relaxed.

It's not something everyone can do I agree. But do it when and if you can and before life takes over because it generally does. Or if you have a window of time in life to do it. It's easier not to do things like this as there is plenty on TV.
Agree with everyone.. This plan deserves a holiday at the end to rest. Everyone to their own. Well done for compiling and posting this
Kudos for the effort but horrific itinerary in that timeframe
Edited by: "Suggs84" 25th Feb
Indeed, kudos for the effort involved, but I agree with most here that it's an exhausting itinerary. Also, having travelled myself for 9 months, for anyone that hasn't gone backpacking this is exactly not the way to do it. I met a lot of "Tick off the countries" backpackers when traveling, and they don't really get the proper experience. Get a flight somewhere, and then see where it goes. Having a complete itinerary denies you of spontaneously meeting other backpackers and deciding to take a boat to an island or 'drive up north'. And for the traveller that wants to have everything organized and simply see a bit of the world, which is fair enough, they are more likely to want fewer destinations and to stay in hotels. Having a completely organized backpacking trip to me contradicts the very nature of what backpackers are wanting to achieve, but that's just my humble option and again, kudos for the effort involved in posting this.

I think this deal is what "is" possible in a month away and for the price the deal is for. You tweak it to what you want i.e. stay in places longer and add the cost to the trip. It's more of a guide in my eyes. Ideally you would get a one way flight and take it from there having researched where you are going. I personally would not come home to brag about where I've been like some say but I guess there are people like that out there. If they started with their stories I'd pretend I had a call on my mobile and make my excuses to leave People were travelling around the world a long time before google and hotel booking sites.

As an older person now, it's not for me, but having travelled a lot when younger I would say this - if you have the money to spare easily, then do it as a taster for that part of the world, then decide what places you want to return to for longer trips.

.I have done similar short-time visits to India, Ceylon, Bangladesh, Kenya, Mauritius when working years ago, and always regretted not having longer in each place, but as I said, it's a good taster for this part of the world, and for those who can afford to write off this money in order to get a taste of what it's about.

Seems cheap to me for all the flights and accommodation, so forget the debates and just go for it.

loads of heat, but have 5 members from here gone ahead and booked this?
I'd be happy just taking a flight and staying in Krabi for a month. Beautiful place.
