Southeast Asia region is a very popular travel destination, and a lot of travel bloggers have written so much about it. It is popular not only to budget travelers and backpackers (because man, they always say this is the cheapest region to travel to), but also to digital nomads, photographers, and travel bloggers themselves as well.
While everyone has been talking about Southeast Asia travel on blogs, vlogs, and Instagram, I honestly believe there is no other nice way to get insider tips about traveling in the region than from Southeast Asia travel bloggers themselves. Most of them are born and raised in this region of the world and they surely know a lot about their countries of origin than anybody else.
