“Where do I even start? It has it all, from chaotic cities to cute little villages and everything in between. Southeast Asia is an island-paradise with amazing beaches where you can snorkel or dive with turtles and all other kinds of fantastic marine life! The weather stays gorgeous, if you plan for the monsoon seasons in the various countries. But if you’re a little unlucky and end up in a place during the monsoon season, you’ll most likely just have a few big showers during the day and then the rest of the day is just as wonderful as you had hoped. For me, being from Bergen (the rainy city), it’s a little piece of paradise.
In addition to being beautiful, it’s fairly cheap to travel around here. You’ll get more experiences and general value for the money you brought with you. If you dream of getting your divers certificate, this is the place to do it! It’s also really easy to travel around locally and you meet new people everywhere! At the hostel, the bar, the beach or at one of the activities you’re doing”.
