    I am travelling to s.e Asia for a three month holiday at the end of October, as I have never travelled before I will probably have a few questions over the next couple of months, here is my first
    I am planning to travel through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and maybe Laos, can you buy a pre paid sim card that covers all these areas or do you have to buy one for each country?
    thanks for your help

    You have to buy one for each country. In Thailand and Vietnam it's straightforward, in Cambodia you may need to get a local to lend you their ID to buy one (generally not a big deal).
