While looking thorugh of one of other wordpress sites, I remembered the importance of putting Manila on the Southeast Asian loop tenable or feasible.
This is the most straightforward and logical route.
Start in Singapore. Go to Kuala Lumpur. Go to Georgetown. Go to Phuket. Go to Bangkok. Go to Chiang Mai. Go to Burma (which I’ve never been). Go back to Thailand. Go to Lao. Vientianne and Luang Prabang (you have an option to fly from Luang Prabang to Hanoi). Go back to Thailand. Go to Cambodia. Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Go to Saigon. Go to Hoi An, Hue, and Hanoi. Fly back to Saigon.
FLY FROM SAIGON TO MANILA. IT’S REALLY CHEAP USING CEBU PACIFIC.
Go to Manila. Go to Banaue, Batad, Sagada, Baguio and back to Manila. Go to Donsol or Boracay or Palawan or Cebu (Malapascua or Bantayan) or Bohol or Siargao or Camiguin or Negros or Siquijor (your choice). Fly to Kota Kinabalu (or go to Sandakan by ferry via Zamboanga, don’t miss Sitangkai in Tawi-Tawi, just to brag that you’ve been there.)
Go to Brunei. Go to Kuching. Fly to Jakarta and onwards to Bali. Go back to Jakarta and back to Singapore.
The Southeast Asian Loop can hold it’s own against any Grand Tour of the Mediterranean.
