So you like independent travel,
but also the luxury of not organising everything yourself? There are travel offers for you. Some companies offer small group tours, that are close to travelling alone. So they kind of close the gap between the two extremes.
You won’t be stuffed into 50 person-buses, you won’t stay in hotels with 200 rooms or more, you won’t eat in restaurants, that feel like a refectory and more. If that is, what you desire, consider booking a tour with one of these companies.

I was on tours with them from 2003 to 2005 in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore. The travelling was always well organised and the schedule varied. The participants were mostly from Europe and some from USA, Canada and Australia. The company is based in the UK.
I was on one tour with them in Southern Thailand in 2004. The travelling was well organised. At that time the focus on responsible travel was a bit too much for me. Not that I’d not respect it, but much of it is just common sense really, that I don’t need explained ever and ever again. The participants were mostly from Australia and USA and some from Europe and Canada. The company is based in Australia.
I never travelled with them, but basically heard just good things about them from friends. The company seems to be based in Canada (I’m not completely sure). As the name suggests the focus lies more on adventure travel than on culture.
