I plan on backpackin through asia sometime around september this year and, being as inexperienced as I am, was wondering how people get around from country to country? Is it just a series of seperate buses or trains that you catch? Is it the same as city town to town? How expensive is something like that going to be? Thanks for your help!

Hi Brittany, could be more specifics as for the countries you plan on visiting ? I did travel in Asia, and it varies from place to place.

Don't neglect some of the discount airlines that operate in Asia. There many cheap, decent airlines that have quite inexpensive fares. A few to consider in the Thailand/Malaysia area include:

Nok Air
Air Asia

There are many more to check out, depending on where you are going. Good luck.

Hey!

I am currently living in Tokyo Japan and am planning a trip to China, Cambodia and Thailand in May before I head back to Canada. I can totally arrange airfare to China from Japan because its super cheap, but I'm not sure of the safest/ cheapest/ easiest way to get from China to Cambodia, then Cambodia to Thailand, then Thailand to Narita Airport so I can fly home. I can speak English, French, and bad Japanese only.

Please bestow upon me your Asian Travel Wisdom

Many thanks

In return, anyone wanting ANY travel info for Japan be it backpack or Holiday Visa PLEASE ASK ME! I have made the most of my year here and would be happy to share.
