Southeast Asia forum
First time travelling through southeast asia, help please! :-)!
26th April, 2011
Myself and a friend are thinking of travelling through south east Asia. Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, thailand and Malaysia. we dont have a set time limit for each place, but playing with the idea of 3 months for all of it. We want to start at the top and work our way down and that's about as far as we have got!
What would be worth going to see whilst over there? Places to stay, visit, experience etc! Is it hard to get visas over there, or do you apply for them in advance? How expensive or cheap is it in each country?
We want to experience as much as possible culture, history, locals, relaxation, places off the beaten track. Any help/advise would be very helpful!

Fisher I would suggest you start having a good look around the website - there is loads of info here about all the countries that you mention. Also troll through the forum to read what other people have done. It's a bit hard to advise you when we know nothing about you (age group, interests, etc).
I would suggest that you start here: http://www.travelfish.org/trip_planner/ to get an idea of suggested itineraries. At the bottom of each page is an indication of travel times between destinations which is also useful to help plan your trip.
Select the Places option at the top and you will see separate sections on each country. In there, you will find a link with info about visas, etc.
