Thanks to an increase in budget carriers, finding cheap fares to Southeast Asia is more accessible. Major Asian gateways for low-cost flights include Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Denpasar (Bali), and Manila, with regular connections to Europe and Australia.
If traveling to Southeast Asia by land, there are multiple land borders for travelers to utilize including China, India, and Papua New Guinea.
For the adventurous travelers, traveling by cargo ships is an alternative option to flying or driving. Some freighters have space for a few non-crew members, providing their travelers with rooms and meals.
