United leave for Australia this week.
"I don't know if it is useful to be away for three weeks but it is useful in terms of getting to know the players," said Moyes of the tour, which features visits to Sydney, Japan and Hong Kong in addition to the opener in Thailand.
"They will get to know me and how I work, which is important.
"There are also two or three young players I might get a chance to look at.
"I am looking for (reserve team coach) Warren (Joyce) to give me direction on that and who should be pushed towards the first team.
"Maybe in some of the games I will have the opportunity to seeing them."
