SE Asia

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm about to leave to go to Australia to pick fruit next tuesday, it's my first big trip and I'm terrified.

Anyway, I'm going with a few mates and after we save some money, we plan to travel round SE Asia. We should hopefully have around £5-6000 and want to backpack for as long as we can and see as many countries as we can (Not so many that we're in a rush though).
I had a vague route planned, which included places like Bali and Malaysia, but I'm starting to think I could travel for longer if I avoided places like that, I also wanna avoid the main tourist traps. I was wondering where you guys would suggest we go? I really want to get as long as possible out of it so the main goal is cheap areas.
That said, I still want to enjoy myself but I'm pretty frugal so I'd be happy to eat mainly streetfood, take buses, stay in hostels etc. and for the most part don't care about any tours or stuff like that. We just want to see some of everything really history, culture, food, nature, a bit of partying etc.

Where would you guys suggest I go?
