Southeast Asia is a popular travel destination. If you want to experience beaches, temples and metropolises up close, you have various options. This article is about group travel .
Countries for group travel
We are currently offering group tours for five countries in Southeast Asia. These are Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
You can also visit the last three countries as part of a combination group tour.
Southeast Asia: Group travel destinations
Group tours focus primarily on cities and cultural highlights as well as on nature and national parks.
The aim is to see and experience as much as possible in a short time.
Beach holidays play a subordinate role in group trips. Many of our customers therefore book a few more days before or after their tour.
The classic group travel destinations are (among others):
- Thailand group tours : Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Kanchanaburi, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Golden Triangle, Khao Sok National Park
- Laos group tours : Vientiane, Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, plain of the clay jugs, 4,000 islands
- Cambodia group tours : Siem Reap (Angkor), Phnom Penh, Battambang
- Vietnam group tours : Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
- Myanmar group tours : Yangon, Bagan, Inle Lake, Mandalay
- Philippines group tour : Cebu, Bohol, Siquijor
Private tour or group trip?
If you don't want to organize your trip on your own but instead want to book a guided tour, you have two options.
You can either book a private tour or a group tour. Most of the Southeast Asia tours that are carried out on a daily basis are private tours.
The difference between private tours and group tours is that only those people who booked the trip together, such as friends, couples or families, take part.
If you are looking for just that instead of a group tour, here is an overview of private Southeast Asia tours:
- Thailand Tours
- Cambodia tours
- Laos Tours
- Myanmar Tours
- Vietnam Tours
- Malaysia Tours
- Indonesia Tours
- Sri Lanka tours
- Philippines tours
However, if you are looking for a cheaper group trip, you will find some attractive offers for Southeast Asia on this page. Both for individual countries and combinations.
Unless otherwise stated, all group trips include all transfers from the start to the end of the tour and all hotels including breakfast.
Note, however, that group tours usually start on a fixed day of the week.

Southeast Asia group tours: information and tips
Cheap group trips
Southeast Asia is a comparatively cheap travel destination. Once the long-haul flights have been paid for, you can get by on-site with a manageable budget, although prices have also risen in many places in Southeast Asia in recent years - especially in the high season.
If you have little money available or want to spend as little as possible, experience has shown that a self-organized trip is the cheapest option.
Then you can buy bus or train tickets on site and book cheap hotels or a bed in the dormitory.
For guided tours, you are usually traveling with a private minibus and guide. The hotels are also of a higher standard.
Compared to private Southeast Asia tours that you can book with a tour operator, Southeast Asia group tours are again a lot cheaper. Since the costs for vehicles, drivers and guides are only calculated proportionately, it is not surprising.
Group tours are also a great option if you don't organize your trip yourself and you don't want to worry about hotels, transfers, etc.
However, if you are traveling alone, you must note that a single room surcharge must be paid if you want to take advantage of it.
The prices listed are valid until October 2020. How much you pay for the trip depends on the route and the time (high season / low season).
You pay the least with around 313 euros for four days in Central Vietnam, most with 2,490 euros for a 15-day Indochina tour through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
Book a group trip online
You cannot book the group trips directly on the page, but you can easily do so by email. Send us a short message or use the contact form at the bottom of the page.

However, the notes there are only intended as an introduction to the topic. They do not replace tropical medical advice from a doctor.
Packing list for group trips
Here we have created a packing list for Southeast Asia , which you can download as a PDF and then print out.
However, this packing list takes all eventualities into account. So just cut out the things you don't need.
Insider tips for group travel
If you want to be off the beaten path, a group trip may not be the best choice, as there must be a certain amount of demand before group tours are offered on fixed dates.
Therefore, the most popular destinations in the country can usually be found on the routes of the group tours.
Nevertheless, you can of course assume that you will meet significantly fewer tourists on a tour through the south of Laos than at the hotspots in Thailand.
Southeast Asia Group Travel: Experiences
Group travel as a vacation
For some, vacation is inextricably linked to a hammock and beach, for others, they want to see and experience as much as possible.
Group trips are more for the second group, as the program is usually tightly scheduled and you rarely stay in one place for longer than two nights.
Since most group trips take about 6 to 10 days, there is a good opportunity before or after that to spend a few days on the beach.
Group travel for solo travelers?
If you do not want to travel alone, but cannot find anyone at the desired date who can / would like to fly to Southeast Asia, a group trip is a good option.
Often you will meet like-minded people among the other participants of the tour, with whom you can exchange experiences.
Even those who feel a little uncomfortable for the first time traveling to a distant and unknown country often book a group trip.
Backpacking instead of group travel
Southeast Asia is one of the most popular travel destinations for backpackers. The infrastructure is corresponding: hostels, beach bars, backpacker buses etc. - there are suitable offers for every demand. The Banana Pancake Trail is spoken with a wink on the popular routes in Southeast Asia.
Since English is spoken almost everywhere and you can now find almost all information on the net and book hotels, bus and ferry tickets as well as excursions, everything has become easier and easier.
With a little planning and the necessary patience, you can organize your Southeast Asia trip yourself.
What speaks for the self-organized backpacker trip: You save money and can plan everything exactly according to your ideas and do exactly what you like best.
A group trip is based on a schedule that must be adhered to. If you are planning your own trip, you do not have to coordinate with anyone and you can simply stay longer if you like it somewhere.
What are the advantages of a group tour?
Without question, the time saving should be mentioned first. With self-organized trips, it is more common for you to "lose" half a day because you are no longer connected to the next destination.
The processes for group tours, on the other hand, are perfectly coordinated based on years of experience, so that you can make the best possible use of your time in Southeast Asia.
If you don't have much time or want to see as much as possible, that's an argument.
In addition, you are always on the go with a guide and driver for group tours. This way you will learn a lot about the country and its people as well as the individual sights.
If these are spread over a larger area, it is pleasant to simply have to get into the air-conditioned car.
In addition, the points already mentioned such as feeling of security, getting to know people and experienced guides speak for a guided trip, if you value it.
Conclusion backpacking vs. Group trip: If you have little time or just don't want to bother to organize everything yourself, you are probably better off with a group trip.
Alternatively, you can of course also book a private tour .
Group travel dates
Our Southeast Asia group tours are offered all year round. Most of them start once a week on a fixed weekday. You can find this in the program that we would be happy to send you.
The best thing to do is to inquire about the exact departure times and whether there are still places available.
