Cheap Travel Destinations in Southeast Asia 2021

Siem Reaper > Travel Blog > Cheap Travel Destinations in Southeast Asia 2021

If you’re looking for a cheap travel destination, you’ve come to the right place. Southeast Asia is full of destinations where you don’t have to compromise on prices or experiences.

What makes a destination inexpensive?

In general, Asia, especially Southeast Asia, is a cheap travel destination, regardless of whether you plan the trip yourself or a package tour.

When planning the trip yourself, here are some things to look for:

  • Prices for flights, accommodation and excursions
  • What does the transport cost at the destination?
  • How much should the trip be?
  • Is food cheap in the country?
  • Low season or high season

If you have the time and energy, you can save money by organizing everything yourself. But that’s also a lot of work.

If you choose a package tour that includes several of the above, you should compare the total price. The advantage of choosing a package tour is that you can simply sit back and look forward to your vacation once it has been selected and booked.

All Siem Reaper Travel tours are package tours. Accommodation, food, tour guide, transportation and the excursions according to the program are always included in the price.

In this post, we introduce you to the cheap travel destinations that you should visit in 2021.


Classic Cambodia & Laos

The more popular Cambodia becomes as a destination, the more expensive it is to travel to this country. Fortunately, Cambodia is still one of the cheapest destinations in Southeast Asia.

Southern Cambodia Discovery is a 10-day trip that takes you to the highlights of the exciting cities of Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Kampot & Kep. Although it is one of our cheapest trips, many experiences and excursions await you.

Among other things, an excursion to the country’s greatest attraction is included: To the ruined city of Angkor with the world-famous Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. In addition, the lively capital Phnom Penh welcomes you with interesting sightseeing. There is also the option of booking additional excursions for an additional charge or exploring the area on your own if you prefer.


cambodia and vietnam tour

Vietnam is another great cheap destination in Asia. Right now it is also the destination where we offer the absolute cheapest package tour to Southeast Asia.

You can combine an experience through Cambodia and Vietnam tour. Get the highlight of what Cambodia & Vietnam has to offer on the Cambodia & Vietnam Discovery, which lasts 14 days.

You will visit Angkor temple and the big city of Ho Chi Minh City, where you will experience the very special atmosphere of an Asian metropolis. After a few days in the big city, the journey continues to the magical World Heritage site of Halong Bay, the best sightseeing area in Vietnam.


Cultural Thailand tour

Thailand is one of the most popular destinations in Southeast Asia. Nevertheless – or maybe because of it – it is a recommended destination if you want to book a trip on a budget. The food in particular is cheap and delicious!

During the trip to Thailand, you will experience the lively capital Bangkok, the idyll of the river Kwai and the wonderful sandy beach of Cha Am near Hua Hin on the Thai east coast.

In Bangkok, you can go on excursions to the Royal Palace, the Grand Palace, a regional market, and take a boat across the many canals of Bangkok, also known as the “Klongs of Bangkok”.

On the river Kwai, you will experience idyllic nature and stay in a so-called floatel – a hotel that floats on the river. You will also take the railroad of death. There has been a relaxation in the last few days in the beach town of Cha Am.


indonesia travel

Indonesia is a more expensive travel destination than just some of the other Indonesian luxury islands. But it is also one of our cheapest destinations. On the Indonesia trip, you can travel with plenty of free time, on which you can just do what you feel like doing.

During the trip you will stay in a few hotels, the transport time is very short, so you have plenty of time to enjoy your vacation.

You can look forward to The Enchanting Ubud – the cultural center of Bali with a unique location in the Balinese highlands, to a visit to the holy water temple Pura Tirta Empul and to a beach holiday in Sanur, one of the most popular beach holiday cities in Bali. If you can’t get enough of Indonesia, you can extend the trip with another beach holiday or with experiences on the Komodo Islands.


Laos is a picturesque and magical treasure in Southeast Asia. With the spectacular mountains, fascinating culture, interesting history, green nature, adventurous cities and much more await you there, and of course, it is cheaper too.

On a trip to Laos, you will discover the colorful jewel of Indochina, rich in natural beauty and cultural treasures, and so enchantingly relaxed. It flows through peaceful forests, past shimmering emerald green rice fields and rugged mountain slopes. Majestic monasteries, dreamy villages and lively markets rise on the banks. As leisurely as the waters of the Mekong flow, the rhythm of life is so calm here. This very special feeling, as if time has stood still – you can experience it on our individual Laos holidays.
