Backpacking Southeast Asia/ Australia


Hey everyone, me and three of my girlfriends are planning a backpacking trip to Southeast Asia and Australia in April or May, we plan on staying for around 2 months but that may be extended depending on how much money we can save up before we go! Budget is currently around $6000.

None of us have ever backpacked before...we're willing to rough it in hostels, but we're all 20-something year old girls and are slightly worried about safety in some areas.

Have any of you ever been backpacking before and have advice?

Or any recommendations on places to visit?

(Our tentative route is Vietnam-Cambodia-Laos-Thailand, then down to Australia and New Zealand.)

Personally, I've never done the whole backpacking adventures - but I'm super jealous! I'd be a little worried about safety issues as well.. since you're young women in new places. Maybe you can check with a tour guide agency, or even a travel guide for some advice?
