    Personally I really enjoy this form of travel however I haven't given it a full ten as it would depend on people's personal preference and may not suit everyone.

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is it ok to arrive before the start of the tour?

      Southeast Asia on a Shoestring starts with a welcome meeting at 6pm on Day 1, so you are more than welcome to arrive anytime before that time. I have attached the trip notes for you so you can have a look into the details of the this fabulous tour.

    • Can international flights be organised through the company or do these have to arranged separately?

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.

    • Can you please provide more details about how strenuous the trekking in the Thai hillside is?

      This trip has an average physical rating and as long as you are comfortable with a small amount of trekking you should be fine.
