Great Deals on Asia Travel

Asia is increasingly becoming recognised as the undisputed hottest destination for student travel. You can get cheap flights to Asia with the help of StudentUniverse's student and youth discounts to places like Bangkok, Laos, Beijing and Shanghai. Once you arrive in Asia, travel is incredibly cheap with low cost options like sleeper buses and overnight trains coming at a mere fraction of the price of what you'd expect to pay in the UK.

You can also save a tonne on cheap hotels and hostels across Asia. Often dorm rooms in hostels are under £3 for a night in places like Thailand. The best news is hotel prices aren't particularly expensive either, so it's significantly cheaper to stay in luxury hotels than you'd expect to pay in other parts of the world.

Top Places to Visit in Asia

Selecting the top places to visit in Asia is next to impossible with so many different cultures, experiences and opportunities. From the bustling, densely populated cities of China, to the staggeringly beautiful beaches of Thailand and Vietnam, Asia has it all.

For backpackers, South East Asia is the place to visit. With traditional backpacking routes taking in the likes of Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and of course Thailand, you're guaranteed a rich and varied experience combining history, natural beauty and good times. Check out our blog on the top destinations to visit in South East Asia for more ideas of what to do when backpacking there.

If you're looking to get away from the gap year scene, a visit to India, China or Japan is highly recommended as well. Taking in a city as large as Mumbai, Beijing or Tokyo is something that everyone should experience at some point in their lives. When you move away from the big cities there are some equally stunning places of natural beauty and unblemished culture that can give you a true sense of traditional Asia.
