I am currently a kindergarten english teacher in Thailand and with my contract coming to a close I wanted to beginning the steps to planning my next adventure. I want to travel through Southeast Asia and end up in either Australia or New Zealand.

Specifically speaking these are the two pathways I have been debating:

north thailand > south thailand > malaysia > bali > cambodia > vietnam > laos


south thailand > north thailand > laos > vietnam > cambodia > malaysia > bali

  • *the last locations with lead to either AUS or NZ deepening which destination is cheaper to fly OUT of and fly IN to.
  • if you have ANY suggestions, tips, advice (which airlines are best, which is cheapest to fly OUT/IN, etc), places that i HAVE to visit, or stories about any of these locations i would LOVE to hear them!

thanks so much! look forward to hearing from you!!

AirAsia flies pretty cheap from KL to Perth or Melbourne. They are a budget airline but i have always found the service perfectly acceptable.

Why do you plan to jump from south Thailand up to Indochina, or from North Thailand to Malaysia? Wouldn't it make more sense to go to Northern Thailand - Laos - Vietnam - Cambodia - Bangkok - South Thailand - Malaysia - Indonesia.

Thank you so much! these are wonderful ideas!

unfortunately i thought about doing one end of thailand then traveling then do the other end, but with my visa situation i can't re-enter thailand and i wanted to see all of thailand before i left :/

thanks so much for the information about vietnam! that all looks amazing! i will probably contact you closer to my arrival in vietnam, thanks again!
