    Ok. So I am about to book flights for mid July- mid oct , but I need to know if my itinerary is possible, or to crammed, anything I should take out or put in. I’ve planned for 35-45AUD a day and a 600AUD fund for visa’s, Halong and Angkor. And a credit card for the odd flight. Good planning?
    I will be doing the normal loop.
    Cambodia- 2 Weeks
    Siem Reip, Battambang, Phnom Penh, Sihonoukville, Kampot
    Vietnam- 3.5 weeks
    Saigon, Dalat, Na Trang, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi, Halong Bay, Mai Chau
    Laos- 2 Weeks
    Vieng Xai, Sam Neua, Phonsavan, Luang Prabang, Vientiane
    Myanmar 2 weeks
    Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Yangon
    Thailand 2.5 weeks
    Bangkok, Lop Burri, Ko Pa Nang, Bangkok
    1 week emergency, for rained out days.
    This will be my first Independent solo trip, any help will be much appreciated.

    Also, anyone had any experience with World Nomad insurence? recomended?
    thanks for your time

    Hi withshoeson,

    This is the kind of plan I like -- it's pretty general, with lots of broad strokes -- leaves you with a lot of wiggle room to see just where the travels takes you.

    My only suggestions would be to consider trying to fit Sapa into your northern Vietnam part and if you wanted, with two and a half weeks you could see more of Thailand if you wanted -- Sangkhlaburi is a great, really sleepy spot that would be a great way to fill three days.

    Regarding World Nomads, I've used them on many occasions (actually just bought a policy for my mother-in-law with them!) and I've no complaints. I've not ever had to make a claim though.

    thanks for you recomendation! i will definately add Sangkhlaburi to the list, sounds like my kind of place. i think i will leave it to the end, that way the emergency days i dont use, i can use there.

    thanks again.
