Combine glittering temples with gorgeous orangutans on this flight itinerary that takes you to Thailand, Borneo and Bali for the best of Southeast Asia's cities, culture and wildlife.

Start your adventure in pulsating Bangkok where you can sample the city's incredible street food, marvel at giant Buddha statues and sail along the riverways in a traditional khlong. Then it's on to Bali where Hinduism takes over from Buddhism and you'll get to visit temples with a whole different flavour. While you're here, hit the waves and learn to surf or enjoy a more relaxing yoga retreat. Next up is Borneo and Kota Kinabalu where you can challenge yourself with a trek up Mt. Kinabalu or volunteer at an orangutan sanctuary. Finish your adventure in Kuala Lumpur and enjoy all this cultural melting pot has to offer.

Flight route

This multi-city flight itinerary is only a route proposal for your big trip. If you would like to visit destinations other than those suggested or add in more stops, reach out to our team of travel experts who can help you put together your dream adventure.

Destination #1 Bangkok, Thailand

A trip to Southeast Asia is not complete without a trip to Bangkok. It's perhaps the most famous capital city in the region, and for good reason. It's a fabulous destination for backpackers, with cheap but delicious street food, vibrant nightlife and plenty of sightseeing opportunities to keep you busy during the day.

But head beyond the city limits and you'll find idyllic beaches that Thailand is famous for, like Hua Hin, Pattaya and Koh Samet. If you've got the time, continue north to Chiang Mai to explore the stunning rice terraces and indigenous communities. Or if diving is more your jam, head south to the island of Koh Tao.

Destination #2 Bali, Indonesia

If Bangkok is the favourite Asian capital city among backpackers, Bali is the famous Asian island. It's got everything you could ask of an island - Instagram-worthy Hindu temples, gorgeous unspoiled beaches and lots of activities to keep as busy or relaxed as you like.

You could learn to surf, go diving or practice your downward dog at a yoga retreat. Then there's always the chance to jump on a boat and visit the surrounding Gili islands for even more beachy paradise.

Destination #3 Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

Kota Kinabalu serves at the gateway to Borneo's natural wonders. From here you can head to the islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park for diving or into the jungles of Sabah to get close to the adorable orangutan. Adrenaline junkies might prefer to challenge themselves with white water rafting while those who like their activities more chill will enjoy a wildlife-spotting river cruise.

But before you leave the city, check out the beautiful floating city mosque of Masjid Bandaraya and the nearby Filipino Handicraft Market for a spot of souvenir shopping.

Destination #4 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The capital of Malaysia is a cultural melting pot, home to a mix of languages, religions and cultures. And for travellers, this mix is best reflected in the local cuisine. You can be eating Chinese dumplings one day, then an Indian curry the next. Then, of course, there's Thai noodles, Indonesian nasi goreng and Malaysia's very own beef rendang.

Beyond your tastebuds, Kuala Lumpur also offers plenty of impressive sights, from the glittering Petronas Towers to the colourful Batu Caves. But if you've got more time up your sleeve, head out from the capital to explore more of the peninsula's highlights, including the tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands, the street art of Penang and the beaches of the Perhentian Islands.
