Delicious cuisine, friendly people, beautiful beaches and affordable prices. Click any of the links below to visit the destination through our experience, see how much it cost, our recommendations and what to avoid. This is your mini South East Asia Tour Guide.

Unlike the typical backpack style traveler, we are not single, do not stay in hostels, are past the fifty mark and cherish our comfort. However, we love to be on the road as much as possible and do not wish to blow our retirement, therefore cheap is good!
