Just a Backpack, Camera, and South East Asia

As I start to plan my own semi-realistic backpacking trip to South East Asia, I have become inspired by others travel videos. I hope you will be too.

Carlos Costa traveled around South East Asia for 3 months and condensed his entire adventure into a 15-minute must-see video for any fellow explorers out there.

Using a GoPro, Costa started his trip in Bangkok then moved to the temples of Angkor in Cambodia.

They then rode motorcycles up the coast of Vietnam all the way from Saigon to Hanoi.

Did they stop there? No way, they just climbed Mount Fansipan before traveling into Laos where they rode elephants in Northern Thailand’s gem of Chiang Mai.

This is a view well worth the hours of traveling. (Screenshot/YouTube)

They adventured to the surrounding islands of Koh Phi Phi, they went scuba diving in Ko Ta, and don’t forget the full moon party in Ko Pha Ngan!

Elephants! (Screenshot/YouTube)

In my mind these guys just wrote the book on how to backpack South East Asia.
