hi m & l,

for thailand, citizens of most countries can get a 30-day visa exemption on arrival by air and 15 days arriving by land. laos and cambodia also have visas on arrival, with prices ranging from US $20 to $35 depending on when and where you arrive.

as a US passport holder, i've entered malaysia, singapore, and hong kong without visas in the past, but can't say what the latest is. i need a visa for oz too, but depending on the flavor of your passport, you might not.

in any case, you might want to get up on your toes and do a bit of research before you depart so you don't have an unhappy surprise while on the road. the embassy or consulate from those countries nearest you in your home country will likely have all the info you need.

worst case is that you'll have to apply for entry visas in a third country while on the road. that works in a pinch, but gets expensive and unnecessarily chews up time spent that could be spent doing fun stuff instead. good luck. cheers.
