    Hi guys,

    Me and a friend are thinking of travelling around south east asia for 3 months next year and really would like some help on how to start! The above recommended route looks good but have many questions.

    We would like to get at least a couple of weeks on the islands off Thailand. Is the trip plus time on the islands realistic in 3 months?

    How much money (excluding flights) would we need roughly for the duration?

    What time of year is best to do the trip?

    Would we literally just get a ticket to Bangkok then arrange transport,visas e,t,c as and when we need to, in other words keep it very flexible?

    Sorry for the many questions but really clueless at the moment! Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yup, you could do all that in three months -- depending on the time of year it may be worth checking out Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam as well -- it's a top spot.

    Costs -- really depends on how you travel. You can see some estimates on costings here, though in sumary, US$20-30 a day is a common budget.

    Cambodia costs
    Laos costs
    Thailand costs

    Then this post should give you an idea of how little you need to travel there is you're willing to be very thrify.

    The most popular time to do the trip would be between November and about February - weather wise that will be about the most popular.

    All you need is a ticket into Bangkok -- arrange everything else as you go.

    More questions - ask away!
