    The trip itself was nice. However, I found it too expensive for what was included. And our tour guide definitely needed a break. She was just not very suited for a young group (anymore?). Cons: Some very long bus rides for only a few hours at a place. This would be fine if the main attractions or places would have been opted for already and we would have had the information in advance. But instead she posted very minor information on Facebook (you have no constant WiFi in the bus) and was not always happy to explain things personally. So basically the same as Paula's review. The main suggestions from the tourguide were often; shopping malls, massage, food and WiFi. That is not why I would fly all way up to Thailand/ Indonesia. Pros: So did enjoy the trip: yes! Basically you have to make the most of it and reserve ~$1000,- for additional drinks, food and activities. Some of the places are really enjoyable. My favorites were the places were; Krabi (go kayaking!), Yogjakarta (go rafting!), Surf camp. Here the accommodations were good and there was enough time to plan some cultural and physical activities.

    While I enjoyed my time on this trip, I feel that our guide did not plan in advance to some of the main attractions, and we ended up missing out...for instance, we were informed about the Petronas Tower one day before we got to KL. By this time, towers were fully booked!! I feel we could have been provided with a little bit more information. Things were usually being discussed when the group was checking in, i.e. after long hours of traveling with our rucksacks still on our back! Not ideal, most people weren't processing the info. Also, I am fully aware that this was a yolo tour, however I would have appreciated different options when it came to nights out and meals... It was always about "cheap cheap"!
