Countries for group travel

Southeast Asia: group travel destinations

It's all about seeing and experiencing as much as possible in a short space of time.

Private round trip or group trip?
If you do not organize your trip on your own, but instead want to book a guided tour, you have two options.
Either you book a private tour or a group trip. Most Southeast Asia tours, which are conducted on a daily basis, are private tours.
The difference between private tours and group travel is that only people who have booked the trip together, such as friends, couples, or families, attend.
If you are looking for this instead of a group tour, here is an overview of private Southeast Asian 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 travel, here are some attractive offers for Southeast Asia. Both for individual countries and combinations.
Unless otherwise stated, all group travel includes all transfers from the start to finish of the tour, as well as all hotels including breakfast.
Note, however, that the group trips usually start on a fixed day of the week.

Southeast Asia group travel: information and tips
Cheap group travel
Southeast Asia is a comparatively inexpensive destination. Once the long-haul flights have been paid off, it is possible to manage on-site with a manageable budget, and prices have 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, a self-organized journey is the cheapest option.
Then you can buy bus or train tickets and book cheap hotels or a bed in a dorm.
For guided tours you are usually traveling with a private minibus and guide. The hotels also have a higher standard.
Compared to private Southeast Asian 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 calculated only proportionally, that is not surprising.
Group tours are also a good option if you do not organize your trip yourself and you do not want to worry about hotels, transfers, etc.
However, if you are traveling alone, you must be aware that a single room supplement must be paid if you wish to use 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).

Therefore, on the routes of group tours are usually the most popular destinations in the country.
Nevertheless, you can of course assume that you encounter on a tour through the south of Laos significantly fewer tourists than at the hotspots in Thailand.
Southeast Asia Group Travel: Experiences
Group travel as a vacation
For some, holidays are inextricably linked with hammocks and the beach, others want to see and experience as much as possible.
Group travel is more for the second group because the program is usually tight and you rarely spend more than two nights in one place.
However, as most group trips take about 6 to 10 days, there is still a good chance 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 do not find anyone who can / want 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 share your experiences.
Even if you feel a little uncomfortable traveling to a distant and unknown country for the first time, you often book a group trip.
Backpacking instead of group travel
Southeast Asia is one of the most popular backpacker destinations. Accordingly, the infrastructure: hostels, beach bars, backpacker buses, etc. - for every demand, there are the appropriate offers. With a wink, the banana pancake trail is spoken on the popular routes of Southeast Asia.
Since English is spoken almost everywhere and you can now find almost all information on the net and can book next to hotels, bus and ferry tickets and excursions, everything has become easier.
With some planning and 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 the most.
A group trip is based on a schedule that must be adhered to. When planning your own travel, you do not have to talk to anyone and you can just stay longer if you like it somewhere.
What are the advantages of a group trip?
Without question, the time savings should be mentioned first. In self-organized trips, it is more common that you "lose" half a day because you have no connection to the next destination.
The process of group travel, however, are perfectly matched due to years of experience, so you can make the most of the time in Southeast Asia.
If you do not have much time or want to see as much as possible, that's an argument.
In addition, you are always traveling with group tours with guide and driver. As a result, 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 just have to climb in the air-conditioned car.
In addition, the already mentioned points such as feeling safe, meeting people and experienced guides for a guided trip, if you value it.
Conclusion Backpacking vs. Group travel: If you have limited time or just do not bother organizing everything yourself, you're probably better off with a group trip.
Alternatively, you can of course also book a private round trip .
