Itinerary for travelling South East Asia for four to six months

So you're planning a trip and you're wondering how far you'll get South East Asia within four to six months? This is my list of places I visited in four months without rushing from one place to another using local transportation when possible and flights when needed, including Thailand, Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines and a little bit of Vietnam. It can easily be stretched to six months by staying longer at a few great places or by adding a few.

Coming home to Yim Huai Khwang Hostel in Bangkok

I love arriving in a new city. It's the thrill of something exciting and unexpected that keeps me going from place to place, always hoping the next one will offer something I haven't seen yet. New people, new food, new everything.

 

But then there are all these little incidents that won't make it onto my Instagram feed. Being scammed by a taxi driver because I didn't know how close my hotel was, getting lost in the middle of the night, dragging the backpack through the city looking for a place to stay...

 

That's why from time to time, there is nothing more enjoyable for me than returning to a place that I liked. Where I can tell the taxi driver where to turn and where my phone connects to the wifi without asking.

My place for that in Bangkok is my favourite hostel in Thailand: Yim Huai Khwang.

Arriving here, I was greeted like an old friend and I felt like I was coming home.

I was in Tonsai before I went to Koh Lipe and Ao Nang but did not want to leave the lovely people there waiting for their posts. So let's skip back a couple of weeks in time to Krabi:

Cast away on Koh Lipe

If you asked me what my dream accommodation looks like, I'd probably say something like this:

my own little bungalow on the beach with large windows to overlook the ocean, right next to a great restaurant. The overall style should be laid back, but comfortable.

A bonus would be a spa, yoga, snorkeling and diving.

Well, guess where I am right now.

I mean, there is a chance that Leonardo di Caprio comes back to Maya bay for a sequel of “the Beach”, right?
