Awesome

awesome trip. wondering will I have enough strength to do this after retirement as now no chance.

If I could afford this, id most definitely book it. Gutted

I recently spent this on a 7night holiday to Thailand!! however most airlines allow you to extend your return flight for free so I stayed another 3 weeks!

My partner did 4 weeks in Thailand and the surrounding islands. She said she'd never go back!

Cool story right?

Thanks for the heads up

not convinced this is amazing value and quite convinced the long distance buses won't be good for everyone. I don't know these specific hotels but accommodation in these areas is very cheap, flights between these countries are as cheap as £50 and overnight buses from £20. this itinerary seems quite rushed with a lot of time traveling. for people with limited free time I suppose this trip would be useful, but if you're not restricted by time you could go for up to twice as long and would cost about the same. I'm going back out in November for about 5 weeks.

I'll say not that big value I booked for next February 4 weeks (Kuala Lumpur, Sydney ,Phuket,Bangkok,Cambodia,Singapore then bk to Kuala Lumpur to London ) less than £2k
Bear in mind Australia is hell expensive.

Having lived in Asia for 6 years, I also don't think it's good value and far to rushed. I'd avoid the death trap buses that often have very serious accidents and proudly display the images on roadside billboards, that's on all of the places.

What time of year is this for, it can get very wet over there for days and days on end. Also whilst I love Bangkok, it's not somewhere I'd rush to visit right now. I've been there during protests, Sars and bird flu, but now feels different. The Thai rulers whoever control has stunk of corruption for a long time, it's just a real bad smell right now with the KoToa scapegoats, internal political issues and puppet masters controlling things from countries that will still have him.

having done thailand 3 times in the last 3 years, i too think this is overpriced (and you will waste a lot of time on those overnight connections).

Sounds like a good deal to me for someone who doesn't want to or hasn't time to plan it all themselves. Just don't get your hopes up on the "1st" class travel on the train.

Anything worth doing in Thailand?

I back packed around Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam for 2 months for way less than this. Also you really don't want to rush each place. I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok alone and didn't even scratch the surface.

Great price and great places. Hope to do this in 3 years with my wife, also a few nights in hong kong too.

Hmmmm. Way to much being in transit time to appreciate those three countries. I was there for 3 months and still didn't have enough time to see the place.

Awesome

I live in Bangkok most of the year as I work in the region and know it well. To be honest this is far too rushed. Overnight bus to Phuket, stay 2 days, overnight back to Bangkok ? Would fall apart for me there. As for value, it's not that bad on the surface of it, but you have a £350 single supplement as well, also the more desirable dates weatherwise are £1400. Ankgor & Cu Chi admissions extra @£50.The named hotels are not guaranteed and you may well end up somewhere less desirable some of the time. Having said that, if I wanted to go on an escorted tour (I don't) there is possibly worse value out there. However, these days you don't have to be an intrepid backpacker to sort out your own itinerary. Less rushed and pick out the places that interest you rather than trying to cover it all.

Yep, do some research on google about corruption/Thai police incompetance/ the koh Tao murders/ the murder of a back packer in Chang Mai and the subsequent police investigation.

In short avoid the cess pit country and go Vietnam instead.

It's not. we are doing a 6 night hk, 14 night thailand trip, in really nice hotels, highly trip advisor rated, and no buses for the same money, although one country less so something to be said for that.

I'm, sure vietnam doesn't have any of those problems.

Overstated. Chiang Mai...Kirsty Jones ? 15 years ago. Incompetence in action, agreed. Koh Tao ? Incompetence plus corruption with a trainwreck approaching, agree there. Honestly though the tax/jet ski mafia are more of a problem for the vast majority of tourists going to Phuket. Cesspit ? No, get real. Vietnam, best pickpockets ever, don't report it to the police as it does not exist. Corruption ? Not much difference, just does not have the same tourist numbers. If you want sparkly clean then Singapore is the only country in the region. Just get expensively bored after day 2.

Getting pick pocketed isnt on a par with what happened on Koh Tao/Chang Mai or samui is it?

What was the military coup leader who is now the self imposed prime minister who is still empowering marshal law over the country quoted as saying after the Koh Tao murders?

If attractive foreign women walk around in bikinis they are asking for it?

Put it another way, would you encourage your daughter to go travelling there?

Ok, this is a deals forum not a travel one so i wont fill t up with nit picking., however i would urge anyone travellng to Thailand or anywhere for that matter to do research and learn just exactly what it is like, dont be lulled by the travel books.

What's the best website for planning a long trip to se Asia? Only trip advisor?

What's the best website for planning a long trip to se Asia?



​just skyscanner a flight when you're roughly planning to go. return flights are a lot cheaper than one way and you can move your return flight back if need be. bangkok has lots of cheap onward flights and is the best place to start and finish for this reason imho.

ZOMG. Too much.

You'll need a holiday after that lot.

sorry I have to vote cold because it's not really a good deal. if you plan the flights and accomodation yourself, it works out cheaper. Asia isn't very expensive.

This is not a deal. SE Asia is so cheap and easy to travel around that over a grand would get you so much more than this offer.

I hope you are enjoying that sheltered existence!

Been going to Chiang Mai and Thailand since 82....never had a problem in all that time.
Local folk wherever you go in Thailand are friendly.
Only ever did a tour once...never again...not one for being shepherded around in tourist buses to snake farms/teak factories/crocodile farms/nightlife ...been there done it.....no as soon as I get into Bangkok I hire a motorbike/hop on it and go wherever I fancy and always off the beaten track...going in January for six weeks...can't **** wait.
Love the place/food/people/culture.
