Yes this october 2010

Extremely rough, like not even sure where I am going to fly into yet, mainly becuase my friend has to take a different route from Houston, TX to meet me because he gets hooked up with flights through continental.

We just started looking things up. I was told not to really plan things, so we decided to give ourselves only a couple weeks to do so, that way we could not organize it too well

4 days in thailand (mostly in bangkok and nearby surrounds)

11 days in CAMBODIA

- 3 days in phnom penh, 5 days in siem reap, 3 days in sihanoukville

+ although sihanoukville maybe change to staying in a tribe or something
++ will try to figure out how to go overland from thailand to cambodia

15 days in VIETNAM with the following places in mind:

Hi Frances! Are there any visa issues in crossing the border? Have you applied any?

#19 aexala79 has been a member since 26/6/2011. Posts: 4

Posted by nasmej11 on 28/6/2011 at 04:53

as these are SEA countries, no need for VISA....ive travelled to singapore,malaysia and thailand before so no visa needed....since cambodia and vietnam are also SEA countries, no need to get one if you are a FILIPINO citizen.

To my fellow Filipinos,

Here is a map of countries and visa requirements. The map needs updating as Filipino citizens can now get Visa on arrival at India.

ASEAN countries have an agreement for visa exemption so we should have no problems going to any ASEAN member country.

You don't need to post this in every thread!! Honestly, one post in thread will do the trick.
