My Collection: Southeast Asia


With Southeast Asia at my doorstep and the advent of budget travel, it has never been easier to pack my bags and head off to somewhere, just under five hours by air (notwithstanding the hours spent comparing airfares and cumbersome flight booking systems and payment). 

My target is to visit all the ASEAN countries and here's my progress (60%): 
- Singapore (where I am 90% of the year)
- Malaysia
- Indonesia
- Thailand
- Vietnam
- Cambodia
- Philippines (Soon!)
- Brunei Darussalam (In time to come!)
- Laos (Before you know it!)
- Myanmar (In the works!)

Southeast Asia is a very charming area, and I never tire of visiting the various countries, which are same-same, yet so different. Here's my collection of posts (excluding Singapore) from around the region. Perhaps it will help you figure out where next to venture to.
