Loop di loop: Bangkok - Cambodia - Vietnam - Laos mid Oct - Dec

Posted by Ru on 2/9/2009 at 03:00

Hi peeps.

Am going solo on a loop Bangkok > Cambodia > Vietnam > Laos > Bangkok from around Oct 18/20... back to Bangkok for early December then keep a going to AUZ, NZ and South America. Maybe tomorrow.. Lassie would be proud..

I don't really have an idea yet of what shape of a loop - like to have a bit of spontanaeity on the way. I'm a fella, 29 from Ireland. If you cross paths and want to tell tales sip some beers and have a laugh hit me back.

Hey Ru

I arrive in Bangkok on the 20th of October and was planning to head to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat within a couple days of arriving. Unfortunately I don't have as much time as you do as I'll be heading home on the 25th of November but wouldnt mind someone to make my way from Bangkok to Siem Reap with.

At the very least I'd be down for a pint should we cross paths somewhere. I'm a dude i'm 22 and Canadian. If your interested at all let me know.

@ Grap77

hi there! i am looking at traveling bangkok to siem reap, around nov 3 or 4 and head back to bangkok the following day. i dont have much time either, i just want to see angkor wat. if you think you are okay with an over night trip to siem, let me know. it will be nice to have someone to share the taxi cost from poipet to siem.

Im thinking of taking the Casino bus, for i've seen on forums that it is the safest and fastest way to reach the boarder.

hope to hear from you again.

Hey there. Unfortunately I think that is a little late for me. I plan on heading to Cambodia pretty quickly after I arrive on the 21st of October. After that i think I'm heading to Laos after 5-7 days in Cambodia. Probably wont be heading back to Thailand for another couple weeks after that. Sorry. IF you are flexible and think that may work let me know if not I'm always down for a beer should we cross paths.

I`m going to Bangkok in 25th oct. (from Australia) and after to Cambodia and Vietnam.

I have some questions...

How many days is a ideal to visit the best sites in Bangkok? Which is the cheaper company to fly to Cambodia? And from Cambodia to Vietnam, is it easy/good go in bus or train?

P.S.: Sorry about my English (I`m foreigner in Australia).
