FAQs Answered By a Woman Traveler: Traveling Solo Around Southeast Asia

Hi everyone!

So, in case you didn’t know, I’m finally back to Vietnam after 3 years. It was the first country that I visited as a solo traveler.

And while this time I kinda get used to doing everything alone when I travel, I understand as someone who comes from Southeast Asia region, some people just ask you a lot of questions about your journey.

Some ask questions out of curiosity, some do it because they’re inspired to do it too, while the other one has a little concern about the idea of you traveling alone. And that’s totally fine with me. After all, not everyone has their privilege to experience solo traveling, I guess?

Now that I’m in Chau Doc, I’ve got some spare time to write as I’ll be on my way to Ha Tien tomorrow, and then continue my journey crossing the border to Cambodia the next day.

This time, I’ll share with you some questions frequently asked about traveling solo in Southeast Asia. The questions that I often get asked, especially as a woman traveling alone around the region.

Review: Malindo Air (A Flight from Kota Kinabalu to Singapore)

Just when I wanted to highly recommend Malindo Air for any flight in Southeast Asia region, I just found out that Malindo has recently changed their policy in terms of free baggage and onboard meals.

So, after my Borneo trip ended, I flew to Singapore with Malindo Air from Kota Kinabalu. And I suppose this was one of the last Malindo flights before they changed the policy. Now that they’ve got a new policy with a few flight options, I’m still going to write a review of my flight anyway.

I’ve also checked the price with each package to compare with my last experience flying with Malindo. So, would I still recommend you to fly with Malindo around ASEAN countries? Here’s the review for this Malindo Air! 🙂

The Summary of My Borneo Trip: Where I’ve Been and Why I Chose Them

Hey, get ready for a long post!!

It’s been almost two weeks since I arrived back home from my Borneo trip. I swear I really wanted to write a post about this earlier, but darn the post-vacation blues situation is real over here.

Also, by the time I reached Sibu in Borneo, I got a problem with the keyboard on my laptop to the point I totally lost my desire to write. Now that I’m home, I’ve purchased yet another keyboard to smash. 😐

Well, since it took almost a month for me to explore Borneo on my own, this post won’t do the justice about what I’ve seen throughout my trip. I’ll create some more follow-up updates about each place I’ve been or how it’s been.

So, in this post I’ll be focusing on the where and the whys.
