Southeast Asia?

So my dad decides to show me all these tour agencies from Hong Kong on group tours that go to Malaysia, Singapore, S. Korea, Japan etc., he says its cheaper than going there myself. The Malaysia/Singapore 6day tour interests me at the moment, as well as the 5day S. Korea one too. The thing that keeps causing me to not want to join such tours with Asian tour agencies because of their itineraries (most featuring stops at local businesses trying to hard-sell useless products that take up to an hour to lower costs). Last time I went on a tour to Taipei with the family, everyday we were brought to one of these places, and I was bored out of my mind. And the state of the cheaper hotel package was just unforgettable rubbish.

The Malaysia/Singapore tour interests me most, cause I think it will interest my cousin as well. He's going to HK with me but he has this huge finance exam in June he's studying for, so even though we're "vacationing" he still wants to study. And this combination of countries feature more fun stuff like resorts and theme parks and casinos. Whereas the Korean one is more about culture and historical things and food. Really tempting for me, but I don't think he'll like it much. 

Need to research bit more once April 7th passes... got major group project that's due on Thursday, a midterm on the Thursday as well... then 2 more group projects due on April 7th before I have to hand in my take home exam thats due before April 20th. Then I will officially be done with assignments and my marketing degree!!!!!!!
