Go solo in Asia via bus

Want to travel Asia solo but not sure where to start looking? Have you ever considered going via bus?

Busabout have launched their Asia 2018 programme which is perfect for solo travellers looking for flexibility in their travel plans.

In 2018, Busabout has incorporated an Unlimited Pass for the first time in Asia, allowing travellers to link up and jump onto each of the Asian trips on offer. This new development gives passengers the opportunity to explore the exotic surroundings of Southeast Asia with independence at their own pace, and create their own adventure

The Unlimited Pass allows passengers to travel once on all Busabout Asia trips within a three-month period. They choose where to start and finish, and everything in between. The catch? There isn’t one, just travel everywhere from only $5,999.
