Hey, there! Thanks for dropping by to this post. First of all, congrats! If this is your first journey to the SEA, then heads up – now, they can’t stop you from chasing the sunsets anymore. This is your first step towards many – and I’m really excited to the journey that awaits you THERE!
I’ve had my first flight when I was 22 – after that, I’ve been backpacking (and teaching) to Southeast Asia ever since. Anyway, enough of my stories but below, I listed some recommendations of the countries you may want to consider when buying your first flight ticket to Southeast Asia. Enjoy!
5. BANGKOK, THAILAND
Sawadee ka, tuk-tuk and pad thai – the three things Thailand is remarkable about. Let’s add Buddha and shopping! Bangkok is the cheapest travel I’ve had back in 2013 – and if you’re a backpacker like I was, I spent $300 for two weeks of my stay here, including cheap hostels and street foods. Say Hi to Bangkok and define another market experience!
4. HONG KONG
If you’re a little fancy, HK fits you. There are a lot of activities to do here – from the affordable Kowloon town to the luxurious Hong Kong Island, its an absolute getaway for those who wants to chill at the top of world (118th F, Ozone at Ritz-Carlton) or just have a quiet coffee afternoon nearside the Victoria Harbour.
3. HANOI, VIETNAM
Noisy, dirty and lovely – this is Hanoi. If you’re environmentally flexible like me, you will enjoy sitting on the little chairs and tables in the middle of the streets – meeting other backpackers and friendly locals.

Thinking of Vietnam is remembering the awestrucking, jawdropping and headturning way of them transporting — goods and services — sometimes people — in resourceful, memorable, worth-capturing solutions they are capable of!

2. PALAWAN, PHILIPPINES
Just because I’m a Filipina doesn’t mean I have to recommend this but really, if you have not been to my country yet then you don’t know what you’re missing. Check it out, from scuba diving to chasing butterflies, you will for sure come back again. I guarantee it.
1. BALI, INDONESIA
— and the number one on my list, is the all time famous, Bali. Go there to know why – if you’re looking for a place full of life, cheap great foods and memorable first time adventure, then you won’t regret choosing this island.
