Air Asia is the most popular budget Airlines for flying around Asia.

It is popular among backpackers, and frequent flyers as they offer some of the best deals for flying around Asia. 

Just be sure to follow the fare rules.

Stray as a similar service to Busabout.

They offer different passes and tours and a another good option if you are looking to tour around Southeast Asia at your own pace.

Busabout is a hop on hop off bus for backpackers around Asia. The routes cover a bunch of different countries. 

They cover Vietnam, Loas, Cambodia, and Thailand. However, it is not the cheapest way to travel. It is great for making long lasting friends. 

Rome 2 Rio is one of the best transportation websites out there. The site shows you the easiest way to get from A to B. Plus, gets you up to date prices on the tickets. 

This is a site I use almost daily on the road. 

Skyscanner is one of my go to sites for flights. It is great if you have open dates or do have a specific country in mind.

Trip is the new and improved C-Trip. It is the best sites for booking flights, buses, and trains in China and Taiwan. 

They have recently expanded to cover a lot more of Asia.

With locals is a great service that offers tours, meals, and various experiences all run by the locals of the country you are visiting. 

It is a great way to get a local experience, and perspective. 

I get a lot of questions about my Sak Yant Tattoo.  

I got my Sak Yant with Where Sidewalks End with provides an authentic experience than many of the temples around Bangkok. 

I can’t recommend them enough. 

G Adventures is one of the biggest tour companies in the world! 

They have tours covering the globe from Africa to Asia.

Resources for 

Accommodation

Hostelworld is the best place to book hostels! They have an active community that gives honest reviews!

Airbnb sits somewhere in between Hostels and Hotels. When I want a little more privacy I use Airbnb.

One of the best sites to book hotels on the web. Great hotels at great prices! 

Booking.com offer great deals and competitive prices. 

Other Resources For

Asia

WorldNomads is my go to source for travel insurance. The cost of insurance has saved me thousands in hospital bills over the years. 

Check out my World Nomads Review.

T-Mobile is the best phone service for traveling overseas. You get unlimited free text and 2g data in over 100 countries. While 2g isn’t the fastest it is awesome getting off the plane and immediately being connected. 

Eat With is a cool service that lets you grab a home cooked meal with some locals and other travelers. 

Each host sets there own price for the meal and can be a cool way to connect with locals.

REI

REI is one of the best places to grab backpacking gear online! Get everything from backpacks to solar charges!
