Southeast Asia has long been a favorite for budget travelers, almost to the point of becoming a cliché.

There is a reason that the place is so popular though and there are a lot of merits to including the region on any major trip. Once you look past the raging party towns and Australian kids on spring break, Southeast Asia has a lot to offer any traveler.

Below are a number of little tips that can drastically reduce the prices of all aspects of your trip: How to Hack to A Flight Since flights are usually the most expensive part of any trip, I thought I’d deal with this subject first. Let’s look at an example. Step 1: Use a site like Kayak as your baseline. Welcome | Roadtrippers | Road Trip Planner | Travel Itinerary.
