Lately I've been reminiscing about my travels to Southeast Asia due to a friend asking for advice planning her trip. It's been almost two years since I spent 3 months travelling through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Bali. Adding to that, it's been close to 3 years ago I took my first solo adventures (other than Korea) to Malaysia and Singapore and 2 years since Philippines. Instead if partying (which I really wanted to do) I visited a lot of the Thai temples, visited the most sacred cave near Kuala Lumpur, learned about the history of Manila in the Intramuros and more!
I hope these pictures inspire you to visit Southeast Asia some day!
