Thanks for your help in advance. Im arriving in Bangkok April 3rd at night and leaving April 24th in the morning. I REALLY want to go to Angkor Wat from April 5th-8th (including travel time) and go back to Thailand and head to Andaman Sea Islands then go to Gulf Islands for the new year and to spend the rest of our time. The airfare roundtrip is $550 US from BKK to Siem Reap. Its insane! Overland from BKK seems like a lot of time will be wasted in getting there and back. My friend doesnt really ...

Hi Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read this. I am planning on leaving this month (March) till the end of May to travel around Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

I was really hoping you guys could suggest the best route to take in the highlights of these countries at the most pleasant times. Thanks for any help you can provide Thanks in advance ...

Planning for South East Asian travel

Posted by Atomic440 on 2/3/2011 at 20:00

Hey everyone, I'm planning to head out to South-East Asia from Japan in a week or so. Me and two friends will be flying to Singapore, then plan to take the train for most of our travel before flying back to Singapore from Penang then on back to Japan. Our trip will last around 3 weeks. Our main stop-offs will be at Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Bangkok - with perhaps a visit to Phuket or Koh Samui before Bangkok but we are as yet undecided. I just want to know what to expect as we're going into thi ...

Help! Itinerary check for a first time solo traveller!

Posted by y123 on 22/2/2011 at 23:20

Hi! Have to say this forum has been really helpful with my planning.I am so glad I've found this website. I'll be going on a solo trip around SE Asia, starting from BKK on the 10 March. From reading around the forum, March/April isn't a good time to visit N.Thailand/ Laos because of the smoke and dust. So, I've changed my itinerary to look like this: Thailand(1 week) - Cambodia(2 weeks) - Vietnam(3 weeks) - Laos(2 weeks) - Thailand (3 weeks) - Malysia and Singapore(3 weeks) The duration of ...

Winging It...

Posted by jonny_lewis7 on 16/2/2011 at 23:16

Me and my mate are looking to travel across SE Asia from September onwards, a long time away I know. Flying into Bangkok as it's the cheapest option from London (I believe, any alternatives welcome). We have no set plan when we get there, just to make our way through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam until the funds dictate we leave. We both reckon we'll have around £4-5,000 so hoping to make it last for as long as possible, eating, sleeping and travelling for as little as possible. My quest ...

Advice for a 3 week trip

Posted by MrAndMrsA on 9/2/2011 at 00:38

Hi there newbie here. Advance apologies for asking questions which no doubt you have heard many times before. I did try searching, but alas, still confused so think some personalised advice may be in order! We have the option spending a couple of weeks in SE Asia in June this year. As part of our whistlestop round the world trip we arrive in Bangkok on the 13th June and leave on the 3rd July from Singapore. I need to fill the time in between. We're not really backpackers neither can we splurge ...

We are a little bit undecided (like many!!) on where to go as so much choice and so little time!! We have only 6 weeks to travel and have to go in May/June which appears to be right through the monsoon seasons of Thailand/Cambodia/Laos/Vietnam So we decided perhapsto go to Malaysia as it will be the dry season there and looks beautiful. We are thinking of flying into Bangkok and spending 3 weeks in Thailand, then the next 3 in Malaysia flying back out of Kuala Lumpur. After reading a lot of ...

Laos or the Thai islands?

Posted by jroo88 on 24/1/2011 at 17:43

I went travelling around Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos last year with a brief visit to Bangkok and Chiang Mai. I didnt get chance to check out any of the thai islands as I needed to be back in the UK. I loved every place I visited but Laos was by far the favourite! I'm planning on going back this year at the end of August for 3 weeks with my boyfriend. My boyfriend likes a mix of activities, nightlife and culture like I do, but he's a bit more attached to his home comforts and doesnt want to do to ...

Flashpacker Budget per day

Posted by MamaH on 23/1/2011 at 18:28

Hi, I'm travelling to SE Asia this summer for 6 weeks and am having palpatations trying to work out costs! I want to stay in decent accommodation (clean and not shared) but not necessarily hotel quality as its just a bed for the night after all. Also, because of time contraints vs how much I want to see, I'm flying a few legs of the journey. Basically I'm wondering what a decent 'flashpacker' budget should be per day all in (i.e. accommodation, travelspending money etc). That should give me some ...

7 days: Cambodia & Vietnam?

Posted by csadoney on 2/2/2011 at 16:02

My sister and I have just 7 days for a trip and were hoping to hit Angkor, Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Long Bay. Is this even possible? If not, would it be better to spend our week in Vietnam or Cambodia? We both really want to experience culture (people, food, architecture), as well as see some great scenery. We're not drinkers or partiers, so have zero interest in night life options. Thanks for any comments and suggestions! ...
