Since many backpackers visit multiple Southeast Asian countries in one trip, I decided to compile a list of all the best things to do in Southeast Asia from nature to culture and food.

There are so many additional items you could add to your Southeast Asia bucket list but half the fun is finding them along the way. These 101 items should give you a solid start!

Southeast Asian countries

Just to clear up what’s meant by Southeast Asia, the official definition is:

Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar, Brunei and Timor-Leste.

In terms of the popular countries for backpackers, it’s this list minus the last two. In this Southeast Asia bucket list, I’ll be including my favourite things to do in these nine amazing countries.
