    Sooo, here we go again...

    Hoping to arrive in BKK in September around the 12th and this is my rough plan:
    Start in Bangkok and stay there for a few days and sort visas out and whatever then head up to Chiang Mai with maybe a few stops on the way, and maybe Chiang Rai, then I plan on heading back to Bangkok and catching a flight over too Hanoi ,

    Once in Hanoi I plan on buying a motorcycle and doing the top to tail ride finishing up in HCMC then either ditch the back or carry on with it into Cambodia (problems getting a Vietnamese motorbike into Cambodia, or so I've read) and once in Cambodia I want to do the usual suspects, Phnom Penh, Kampot, Siem Reap and Battambang (Any other suggestions?) then make my way back to Bangkok before heading home, ideally I would like to experience FMP but it's obviously a bit out of the way on my route!

    Any input on my trip? I'm going to have roughly between 2-3 months travel time I want to do this on a budget but saying that I don't want to be sleeping in a sewer, so once again another question for you on a budget? I want adventure, culture, street food and memories.

    I'd really like a buddy for the Vietnam motorbike trip or even the whole thing if anyone's interested?

    Any feedback is good feedback so fire away...

    Cheers.
