    Potentially interested - I'm a restless backpacker living in Singabore. I have a huge weakness for Malaysia and could easily be talked into a trip there :)

    To add a more detailed explanation of my trip

    All my flights are cheap Airasia flights if booked ahead under $50 and some land crossings. As im spending a month in each country there will be plenty of time to visit a variety of sights and cover portions of every part. I should also mention that im very adventurous and even though money is not a concern i go 3rd class all the way anyway. My goal is to live cheap and like a local, seeking out the places no one goes and finding the 'real' life of the place im visiting.

    The following is a rough estamate of the journey as i really just wing it as i go. in every country ill make it to places east, west , north and south so a few days here... then well i get antsy its time to catch the next bus. no real planning other than getting out before the visa is up and on to the next country.

    November In Thailand

    Leaving the end of October for Thailand and spending a month there leaving the end of November.

    December in Laos

    From thailand ill be going to Laos via the friendship bridge and getting my visa there. Spending a month or so in Laos Then taking a Airasia flight to Malaysia.

    Januaray and Febuary in Vietnam and cambodia

    going on Airasia Flights from malaysia. getting visa to vietnam in bangkok while im there.

    some of March in Singapore and flying home from here.

    Malaysia can be fit in whereever since its the hub for my flights. ill be in and out of malaysia 3 times so if youll be in malaysia anytime from late december to febuaray i can work with ya :-)

    Hey man,

    I'm a 22-year-old guy (and current Manhattan resident) planning a 3-month long excusrion to SE Asia. My plan roughly coincides with yours--arrive in Thailand in October for the start of the dry/cool season, then spend roughly a month in Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, respectively.

    I am actually applying for PhD programs in American History--specifically, social and cultural history as it relates to our involvement in Vietnam--so I'm uniquely interested in approximating an "authentic" (problematic, I know) experience in the less-trammelled parts of Indochina.

    Since I'm leaving my current corporate job in late summer, I plan on a very loose itenerary. I'm looking for something experiential, rather than simple checklist sightseeing.

    Let me know if this sounds cool...
