Have backpacked to India, Nepal,Philippines, Indonesia. But I am a frequent backpacker to Thailand, Laos & Cambodia...been to these countries several times.The most recent ones are listed below. will be more than glad to offer some ideas if you have plans to visit the lesser known areas in these countries. Does Luang Namtha Biodiversity Conservation Area(Laos),Yeak Loam Commune (Ban Lung Cambodia),Sipien Valley (Laos) & Kong Chiam (Thailand) strike as adrenalin-pumping places to you ? Then we are on the same wave length!

Hi folks, As for the touristic attractions, I will leave you to browse thru the guidebooks. But if you want to know and do more...nature,rainforest,caves,river boat ride,trust me. Maybe you want to spend some time in Loagan Bunut National Park (Miri),Klias Wetlands (Sabah), Endau Rompin Park (Johor), or unheard areas like Sg Bebar for a blackwater experience & wrinkled hornbill watching...Feel free.
