    I had a fantastic time on this trip. As others have mentioned, you could probably do the same trip for cheaper by yourself. However, as a first time traveller, having everything organised for you and all transport sorted was great. It removed all the stress from travelling and was worth the extra money. My tour guide Amy was outstanding. She gave everyone the freedom to either eat and hang out as a group or do our own thing. We always ate at cheap restaurants which was great as it saved money for activities. I'd recommend this for anyone travelling for the first time. After you can always travel by yourself and explore more.

    When I first told my parents I wanted to travel through Asia by myself, they were terrified. So to ease their fears I booked a tour. I’d heard of G Adventure from different travelers that loved its open layout, focus on sustainability and group activities. So I just booked On a Shoestring from Bangkok to Singapore. I had a lot of fun on the trip and hope the friendships I made will continue. Hopefully, I’ll make my way to Melbourne to visit the girls I met. Some of the highlights were island hopping, trekking to large fungi, seeing the view from the Heli bar, partying in Kuala Lumpur, and seeing the Super Grove at night. Despite having amazing experiences, I would not do a G Adventure Tour again. When I broke down the fees I was paying $107 a day to be on the tour with the only things included some breakfasts, hotels, transportation, a snorkel trip, street food tour (which we never got) and our guide (ours happened to be subpar). I had to pay out of pocket for all other activities. It was kind of nice to choose but wasn’t cost effective. My other issue is the guide kept taking us to expensive restaurants that were pretty Americanized. He pressured us to eat in a group and when we suggested not going to the restaurant he seemed upset. So I spent more money on food than I ever would have on my own. If I had paid out of pocket it would have come to about $42 a day. And it would have come out to be less on my own because I would have stayed in hostels. Not only that my tour guide was trying to say he was only paid $25 a day which makes no sense, we were still required to tip and the guide wasn’t very helpful. My guide was pretty rude, unhelpful and incompetent. I would only suggest this tour style if you either don’t have time to plan your trip or you feel uncomfortable on your own. However even then the fact that most activities and food were not included it just doesn’t seem worth it. I’d probably try a different type of tour.

    The tour guide (Ann) was amazing, we were a small group of 8people, 7girls and 1guy which was fantastic because in this way you get to know everybody, everything was going well untill we reach Kuala Lumpur where I have been bitten by BED BUGS in the hotel where we stayed. I contact the company and they were not much apologetic. Nearly a month has gone by and I am still scratching and after have my holidays ruined I have to deal with the problem with nothing more than a sorry. I understand that they need to keep down the prices but probably this tour is far too cheap. I have been left with scars all over my body. F***k you very much!

    Do this trip and discover Malaysia! A secret gem of SE Asia, Malaysia is beyond beautiful, from the street art of Penang to the green of the tea plantations as the sun rises. And the food will rock your taste buds time and time again, whether it's Indian or Chinese or Thai or Malaysian, Malaysia will have the cream of the crop.
