Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region!

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

  1. Anudarani

    Had the best month of my life. The trainers, people, environment and island was all exceptional. I would highly recommend it to everyone, no matter what your fitness level is and the trainers are really accommodating and patient!
    Miss it so much and cannot wait to go back!

    The deal from BSEA is one of the best youโ€™ll get and highly recommend:) Enjoy!

  2. callum chuck

    Greatest 4 weeks training of my life.

    All the trainers are experts and challenge you to be your best. I have a background in kickboxing so had to change my style to get used to the Muay Thai, but after 2-weeks I was offered a fight and got to compete in Koh Samui international stadium (and win) which was an experience I will never forget.

    Honestly felt I made some strong friends at Punch it and was extremely sad to go.
    I recommend everyone to go, it’s the best thing you will do.

    Also, the cafe does amazing food.

    everyone is extremely friendly

  3. Sinead O’Brien

    I honestly had the best four weeks at punch it gym. Markus the owner was so friendly from the start and all of the trainers were so professional and welcoming. I learnt so much in such a short amount of time and will definitely be returning.
    The hotel and staff were really great and I loved my stay there as many of the people at the gym were staying there also which made it quite social. Itโ€™s also great as people motivate each other ?

    Thank you for such an amazing trip

  4. Wilma

    Best ive done in a long time! The trainers are the best and the muay thai i so much fun to learn. I will definetely go back to punch it gym

  5. Nick

    I had 0 experience with any sort of MMA so I was nervous heading into this, but the team of Punch It was really patient with me and so were all the class members. After one month of training I left feeling like I got A LOT better!

    The trainers focus a lot on technique and this is perfect for beginners, but the conditional part is no joke either. Every day I felt like I was getting better and stronger. I think the end result showed this as well

  6. Amalie

    Great stay! Would definitely recommend the stay at Punch It Gym! And Iโ€™m definitely coming back! Thank you southeastasiabackpacker for making the booking easy, as well as answering any questions.

    Marcus is the owner of the gym, and he is super friendly and helpful! Not to mention the fun and professional instructors! Working out 4 hours a day became such a joy, with your great energy and knowledge.

    Overall a great stay! The hotel was five minutes from the gym, with great staff. Fifteen minutes from the beach.
