By RitaUpdated Jan. 22, 2024

Thailand, Singapore, and Bali are perfect destinations for slow-paced relaxation tours in Southeast Asia. You would discover the best tropical islands, savor diverse foods, and immerse in the rich culture.

Crafting the logistics for planning your travel itinerary and seamlessly connecting with the countries could be quite challenging. To make things easier for you, we've laid out an experience-backed guide, including how long to spend in each country, suggested itineraries, costs, and more.

How Many Days to Spend in Thailand, Singapore and Bali

10 to 14 days is ideal to discover the highlights of Thailand, Singapore, and Bali. Typically, spending most of the time in Thailand and Bali is great for a diverse experience.

A popular schedule includes spending 5–7 days in Thailand, exploring its capital—Bangkok, and northern cities like Chiang Mai. In Singapore, allocate 1–2 days to glimpse the cityscape and savor various Asian cuisines. For the tropical island of Bali, plan 4–5 days for the best cultural immersion and beach time.

If you have 2 or more weeks, consider exploring hidden gems in Thailand, such as Kanchanaburi, Chiang Rai and Khao Sok National Park. Alternatively, extend your beach time in Bali.

To cater to your personal interests, we could customize the itinerary based on your schedule and preferences.

Best Times to Visit Thailand, Singapore and Bali

The prime time to experience the best of Thailand is from November to April, while Singapore welcomes visitors from February to October, and Bali showcases its beauty between April and October. Therefore, the best time to explore these three countries collectively is in April.

Additionally, May to July and October to November are also good choices. During these periods, Bali and Singapore embrace great weather, while Thailand avoids its peak rainfall. Besides, most of the rainfall in Southeast Asia occurs as short bursts lasting for 1-2 hours in the afternoon. Therefore, you still have time for outdoor fun even in each country's rainy off season.

How to Get Around Thailand, Singapore and Bali

For the travel route, Thailand–Singapore–Bali is highly recommended to minimize time and transportation costs. You could take advantage of the rich choices of direct flights and the convenient geographical proximity of these three locations. You could also have a winding-down tour outlook: from more-active sightseeing in Thailand to city life in Singapore to beach time in Bali.

Flights undoubtedly are the fastest and most comfortable way to travel between the countries and popular cities. For local sightseeing, our door-to-door private transfers would save you from facing navigation issues, long walks, and the hassle of dealing with public transportation.
