Weather concerns when visiting SE in August and September

Posted by Mbrzi25 on 9/5/2016 at 10:50

Hi Everyone, I am planning to do a 2 month trip to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar in August and September. I have never been to the region before, and have read really mixed reports on what places will be like at this time. I understand that all of the individual countries have diverse weather by region, so it will certainly vary, but I guess I am just looking for some confirmation that it will be safe/enjoyable to travel at this time. I'm not bothered by rain, but certainly want ...

3 weeks in July: Vietnam or Indonesia

Posted by ihavequestions on 21/3/2015 at 10:19

Myself and a friend are looking to travel in Asia for about 3 weeks in July and we have settled on either Vietnam or Indonesia. We are looking for low budget travel, our interests include nature and animals, outdoor activities, beaches, culture, geography and food. Ideally we would like some nice weather, but its not the most important thing- as long as it wont be raining all day every day. Any ideas for which country to choose and why, and itineraries would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ...

Mekong Delta, Vietnam scooter trip in photos

Posted by somtam2000 on 7/1/2013 at 02:14

In early December 2012 I did a 11 day scooter trip through the Mekong Delta with a couple of friends. While I'll be blogging about it on the Vietnam Blog in detail in the coming weeks, I thought I'd post a map and a few pics from the trip to perhaps get a few feet itching. Below is the map of the route we took. While I was tracking the entire trip by GPS, the Everytrail iPhone app I used has crapped out on me and I can't retrieve the route nor any of my waypoints -- EVERYTRAIL I AM NOT HAPPY - ...

10 days in Myanmar

Posted by Ruthbrain on 17/9/2015 at 09:48

Myanmar is a fascinating country and best to visit now while it's still relatively untouched by modern development. The people are so friendly, the women and men still wear traditional longis and it is a challenge to dodge the constant betel spitting. We did a 10 day circuit Yangon / Bagan /Inle Lake/Yangon. After landing in Yangon We spent 2 nights staying at Chan Myaye Guesthouse (recommended by travelfish). It was in a good location and had lovely helpful staff. We did lots of walking around ...

2 Months in SE Asia

Posted by tdk197 on 19/6/2015 at 13:03

Hey guys I'm wondering if you can take a look at my plan and give me any helpful feedback. This is my first time backpacking and I'll be going with a friend. We are going from late October to late December. All of my plans are in the attached picture. I mostly want to know if it's doable or if I'm rushing. None of the days are set in stone, I just wanted a general idea of how long to stay in each place. I will gladly stay at a place that I like longer and shorter at one that I'm not fond of. Is ...

10 weeks in SE Asia with two young children - it's a wrap!

Posted by FoundVagabond on 25/8/2014 at 22:20

We are a Canadian family of four with an 8 and 10 year old, currently in Bangkok on the final days of our 10 week trip around SE Asia. I wanted to do a quick posting as a show of thanks, as I used Travelfish extensively while doing research for our own trip before we left. I was most interested in finding blogs or postings from families who have traveled this part of the world as I think the needs of families are quite different than those of single backpackers; in fact, they are very differen ...

Stray Asia.... The biggest mistake of my trip

Posted by Travellingbanjo on 5/3/2015 at 06:01

So, Stray Asia has a policy on the reviews on their website, it has to show them in a positive light or else they refuse to 'approve' it, so no one sees anything except for good things from their website. Well unfortunately I fell for their good reviews and the experience I had was not quite so rosy! Below is the honest review that they refused to show on the website: So stray... The worst decision I ever made. Overpriced, appalling service, blatant lies on the adverts and I wasn't the only one ...

We have just returned from a 6 day trip to Koh Lanta; a great place to visit. We stayed at Lanta Miami on Khlong Nin beach; a great location....right on the beach. The resort was middle of the road; not fancy but clean and comfortable, with a great pool, and the restaurant served good, reasonable meals. The rate included breakfast, which was pretty average, but not as bad as a lot of the reviews suggested. The room had air-con (essential!!), a fridge, TV and free Wifi. A highlight of the trip wa ...

Hi everyone. I have been reading a lot and I made a draft of what would be my 4 week travel to SEA (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam).

Similan Islands Live-aboard Snorkelling Trip

Posted by tezza on 24/4/2008 at 18:45

I finally got my wish and did the 3 day-2night live-aboard snorkelling trip to the Similans put on by Poseidon Bangalows out of Khao Lak in late January 08. I found it one of the best live aboard trips I’ve done and highly recommend it to not only to people who like snorkelling some pretty good reefs and checking excellent marine-life, but others who simply like chugging around on a comfortable slow-boat thru a series of scenic islands (the Similans are a string of 9 hilly forest clad islands ...

Hi guys, myself and my boyfriend are looking to travel around SE Asia starting from Cambodia, into Thailand, down to Malaysia and Singapore, across to Indonesia and finally finishing at Bali. The question is- how much would I need for food/drink, Lodging, excursions and personal spend for 6 months? Before we go, flights will be paid for, couple of night accommodation in each place and have around £300 for other travel expenses- so it would be spending money. I have been researching and lookin ...
