My wife and I are planning to take a trip this coming summer to SE Asia and would rather not book the flight online. We're looking for a travel agent here in Philadelphia that specializes in Asia or around-the-world travel. Does anyone have any recommendations?

My wife and I backpacked SE Asia without prior arrangements. We didn't even have a ticket home. The Maldives, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand are easy. Cambodia and Vietnam are harder, China is tough. Basically the farther north you go, the harder it gets.

Overlanding/water SE asia is the way to go, if you are careful about avoiding the various monsoons.

For air, be sure your travel agent considers local airlines like Lion Air. Try to get your long hauls on asian operators like Thai, Malay, or Air China as they usually have better service for the price as US operators.
