Touring Asia...

Hello all, me and a friend are starting to plan a trip round eastern Asia, but we're pretty stumped on which places to include. Obviously we can't go everywhere due to limited funds. So I ask if anyone has any ideas for a route plan. It would be ideal if you could bare in mind that we can only spend a maximum of 2 months abroad. We each have about 3.5k to play with, which is around $6.5k I believe.

Cheers.

If you are looking for city experience, definately visit Hong Kong. It is a one of kind place like Paris, London and New York City...

You should also make the trip to Thailand... the beaches are amazing (and they need the tourist dollars).

Cambodia... still relatively off the toursit map but Angkor Wat is stunning...

Malaysia... Kuala Lumpur is a bustling city that often gets overlooked... There are also some very nice "National Parks" that have great hiking and camping trails... They also have some very nice beaches... You can also pop over to Singapore relatively easy... Singapore can get pricey though.

Indonesia has some of the most beautiful countryside... and Bali is amazing... Stay away from the big cities like Jakarta... great nightlife put just too crowded and chaotic...

I also hear good things about Vietnam but have never been.

Your money will take you anywhere you wanna go! Asia is supercheap, my wife and I did Europe for less than that combined for 9 weeks, and it is like 10x more expensive! My plan would be Thailand, Cambodia (make sure to hit Ankor Watt!) and Laos (eat bugs!) ... Vietnam if I could make it. Bali was awesome, as stated above. If you can make the stop in Singapore, it is interesting and has so much great food. If you could include China, I recommend Beijing and/or Shanghai. If you make it to Japan, make sure you keep some money, it ain't cheap. Asia is awsome! Enjoy!

1. First check with airlines and see if they have All Asia Pass - Cathay Pacific used to have a USD999 - 18 city pass. I'm sure Thai Airways,Malaysia etc. have it too.

2. That will allow you to pick the countries from the hub city. Take buses in SEA, they are inexpensive.

3. Mix cities {HKG,BKK,SIN.KUL} with countryside, beaches etc.
