Thailand, Malaysia & Vietnam. First Time, Help Please
31st January, 2014
I'm planning to go to Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam for 1 month. I was wondering if anyone can help me on where to go etc?
I would like to spend more time in Thailand than Malaysia and Vietnam.
My initial idea was to start in Bangkok stay their for couple of days, maybe head to north and stay for couple of days and head back to Bangkok. Fly to Malaysia then Vietnam and back to Bangkok, then go to the south of thailand?
Also how would the visas work, if i was to come back to Thailand after Vietnam?
Thanks a lot, much appreciated guys

Assuming you're from one of the countries listed on this page (http://www.travelfish.org/visas/thailand), you'll get 30 days visa-free in Thailand when arriving by air, and either 15 or 30 days when arriving by land (again, see the above page to determine which you get). So if you fly into Bangkok from your home, and then fly back into Bangkok from Vietnam a few weeks later, you'll be granted 30 days visa-free both times.
You will need to apply for a visa for Vietnam (the "visa-on-arrival" isn't a true visa on arrival, as you still need to apply for it in advance).
BTW, that's a lot of travelling about for a month - remember when planning out your trip that you'll lose pretty much an entire day every time you move from place to place.

I would personally leave Vietnam for another trip since it's quite different from the other two countries, and really deserves it's own month to travel. I believe that you don't realize just how large the area is, and how slow and time consuming ground travel can be.
To get a proper answer, you should indicate your interests, season of travel and budget.
It also sound like you haven't read the TF Destinations sections for these countries?
