Backpacking Trip- Tips for a Young Adult

Jump to last reply

Hello! My boyfriend and I are planning on doing a 2 / 2 and a half month backpacking trip. We would like to visit Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Bali, Malaysia, Sri Lanka (I would love to volunteer here), and possibly if we can fit it in, a shorter stint in the Phillipenes or Burma (about 4 days). Our time-frame would be from May-early/mid-July.

We're both physically fit 19 year-olds that love adventure, fun, and culture. We're not necessarily the type of people that want to avoid all tourist traps (yes, we do plan on attending a Full Moon Party) but we'd like to keep it a good mix of real-life culture and the latter. Any tips on where to go, where to stay, events to attend, etc. would be greatly appreciated! I just want to get a feel of what other people enjoyed most/our planning. Thanks!
