    This is simple. We'll give you a US$1,000 voucher to spend with one of our favourite adventure tour companies, All Points East. You can use the coupon against any one of their tours, with or without flights. Be sure to check their website as some of their tours cost under $1,000 so you could get the entire trip for free.

    All you need to do is say why you want to win this voucher in 30 words or less by midnight, and we'll pick the winner.
    You can real more about All Points East here.

    Small print: The prize is valid until July 12, 2010, is not redeemable for Singha, cash or anything else and is subject to availability. Basically, the winner should buy their own beer, plan to holiday within a year and book early ;-)

    If you spend less than the full $1,000 with All Points East, the balance is not refundable -- take a friend with you (we're available ;-) and offset two fares with the grand if you'd like.

    As much as I love Melbourne, it's not actually Vietnam. Please take me back there...

    There is no such thing as having seen enough of SE Asia. There is always more to do and explore. Get me out of my house!

    'Groundhog day' has become a permanent fixture of late. After months of procrastination, we've decided to chuck it in and set off on a new adventure. This would definitely help!

    Armchair traveling reading novels, guides and forum posts is no substitute for the real thing. I have an incredible longing to become a part of the pictures and stories.

    I want to return to Cambodia to give something back to this amazing country. If I win, I'll do a "Charity Tour" and write a travelogue to share with everyone on TF.

    Friends rib me about trip reports based on eavesdropping in travellers’ bars. I figure it’s time to actually go see places. Those All Points East destinations look a great start.

    10 years of corporate slavery, chained to my desk
    Finally resigned, figured there’s more to life
    Now I have time to travel but not as much moolah to do it.

    Somtam...

    "30 words or less.... Now for me, that's a big limitation

    Here goes...

    - - - -

    I'd use $1000 to explore more of SE Asia: it's a fascinating area.

    I'd be better able to help other Travelfisher's get the best out of their holiday

    There, did it...

    I just got retrenched - my husband did too

    You’d think I’d be mad, but what can I do?

    Sell the house, pack a bag, jet off overseas

    With All Points East, it should be a breeze.

    To be able to experience SE Asia through a 'specialist travel agency' like All Points East would certainly put a spin on the usual backpacking adventure I am accustomed to!

    I recently turned 45, my marriage fizzled and my job ends soon. My upcoming travels are an opportunity to move on and throw myself into new challenges. $1000 would help!

    Southeast Asia brings out the dreamer in me. I can't say how I might change if I went there again, but it would certainly have a great impact.

    Some of the tours look really interesting and off the usual tour circuit. A great way to get a taste of somewhere new without having to worry about logistics!

    Wasn't sure if we were only allowed to post one but if so ignore this. It tells the personal story of a nagging girlfriend and an opportunity to have a get-away! Here goes:


    As I write
    She wants to fight
    My girlfriend drives me mad
    I know im bad
    but would sure be glad
    Some time away
    Please dont make me stay!!!

    Although I travel for me is 'normally' unscripted, the chance to try a different way of travel is the reason I do so in the first place. (27)
