Hiking boots or Sandals?

Posted by jack2408 on 15/2/2010 at 02:57

I am travelling to SE Asia in March covering Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Malaysia and Singapore then onto Australia hopefully. I was thinking 3 pairs of shoes. Plimsolls, flip flops and maybe sandals(the sporty kind). What do you guys recommend and if it is sandals do you know of any cheap places I can get some cos I wasnt looking to spend much.

Thanks

Jack

Go with what you've got, and if you need more buy more.

I agree - when I got to Thailand I was gutted to realise I could have bought everything I needed in BKK for a lot less!

Have fun!

I agree - don't buy clothes or shoes... you can buy that here. If you already have it, that's another story.
