Laos/Cambodia

Posted by travelnut55 on 26/8/2008 at 06:51

I will be traveling to India and South East Asia for 2 months starting in late September with a friend. We are both in our early 20s and just out of college. We canceled our portion of the trip going to the Philippines so we have 10 extra days before leaving from Bangkok to Bali. We already have 3 weeks in Thailand so we were looking to explore some more. Was thinking of doing a couple of days in Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat and then heading to Laos (maybe Luang Prabang) for the rest of the 6 or ...

G'day from Sydney! Me and a couple of mates are doing our first 'without family' holiday, and our plans are roughly as so - Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand (Sth to Nth), Laos (Nth to Sth, Cambodia and into Vietnam. I have roughly 10 weeks available to make this journey. This website has already proved to be immeasurably helpful. And to all, I thank you! However...

Phu Quoc or Koh Maak?

Posted by laurenbernard on 14/9/2006 at 22:02

Hello, hoping to get some views... We're off to SE Asia for two weeks in mid November, flying into Saigon and out of Bangkok. I had planned on fitting in a few days at the end on Koh Maak to have some beach time and diving... BUT I've just seen the review of Phu Quoc on Travelfish and it looks amazing. I don't think we'll have time to do both (given we also want to see Saigon, the Mekong Delta, Phnom Penh, Angkor etc) so which should I choose? I'm looking for good weather, clear tur ...

First Time to SE Asia

This is going to be my first time travelling overseas and my partner and i are doing a RTW trip starting off in SE Asia. We really want to make the most of this part of our journey so i have been researching as much as I can on Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia & Singapore as these are the places we want to see.

Trying to Avoid the Rain

My friend and I are traveling from mid Sept to mid Dec. We plan on doing Singapore, peninsular Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam. We're hoping to avoid rain and monsoons as much as possible, with most concern about those countries where traveling becomes difficult during monsoon season. We're also trying to take as little flights as possible. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best route for us to take? Thanks so much! ...

Thailand, Cambodia, Laos - How long to go for?

Posted by Munkychump on 19/8/2008 at 09:40

Hi guys, I'm heading to Europe in a few months and thought I'd stop off in SEA on the way through (since it doesn't cost any extra)... I have been to Vietnam in 2007 (in which Travelfish was a great help!) so I want to cover off Thailand, Cambodia and Laos this time around. Just wondering how long I should leave to explore before heading on to Europe? I won't be making a detailed itinerary but want to have a rough idea of where to travel and keeping with these main points: - I will b ...

To include Vietnam or not to include?

Hi, I am a 26yo female planning to travel throughout SEA in Nov & Dec 08. I have about 5 weeks free to travel independently and am very keen to travel through Cambodia and Southern Laos during that time. The question is whether I should squeeze in 10 or so days in Vietnam and shorten my time in Cambodia and Laos? I travelled through northern Laos in Jan 08 and fell in love with the place. I definately prefer less touristy,less developed, more authetic, chilled out destinations (like Laos ...
