2 month Itinerary: realistic?

Posted by castillo823 on 11/3/2012 at 17:27

Hello! Long time reader, first time poster, so I apologize if this isn't in the correct section of the boards (although, I'm fairly certain it is). Anyway, planning a solo-trek through South East Asia this summer. Done the living out of the backpack thing in Europe this past summer for about two months so I'm fairly comfortable with traveling on shoestrings and the planning/issues that go along with it. I've spent many hours over the past few weeks looking at sample itineraries, looking at tra ...

We landed in thailand and made our way to cambodia via the koh kong border. Everything went very smoothly, no hassle, some of us had our visa's already, 2 of our group got it on arrival, no problems, no scams. We exchanged a bit of our money because the cab driver insisted none of the places took american,baht, etc. Do not listen to them, all of the places we went to in cambodia take US dollars, the menus and guesthouse prices are all in american. the machines spit out US dollars. Get the taxi ...

Well - finally got around to finishing my HCMC report - again, can also view it here. Hope you like Arrived on the bus to Ho Chi Minh City from Can Tho at night. Wow. There are a few motorbikes in this city, and they all seem quite intent on getting to wherever they are going as quickly as possible, regardless of who is in their way. I ended up splitting a taxi with a few people from the bus to head to the backpacker area around Pham Ngu Lao – quite sure we overpaid for the ride – make ...

Advice on China travel?

Posted by Mattvs on 20/10/2011 at 12:29

Travelfish was a godsend when my wife and I were traveling through Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia in 2009. Now we're exploring a 2.5 to 3.5 week trip to China this spring. Ack! Where's the Travelfish for that part of the world? We'd love help with either of the following questions: 1) Do you have recommendations for the best itineraries for that amount of time? 2) Can you point us toward the best forums for travelers exploring China? A bit more about our travel tastes: We don't need more than a ...

My friend and I are planning our first ever backpacking trip to SEA this coming spring (wooo!) and I'm trying to hammer out some rough possible itineraries.

My SEA Itinerary - worried about weather

Posted by Phiddy on 1/12/2011 at 13:16

Hi, I'm planning a trip to SEA from mid to late January to mid April next year. I don't yet have an itinerary but I know that I would like to spend the last couple of weeks to a month in the islands of south Thailand. What I have so far is probably familiar to most of you, arriving in BKK, travelling into the north (ie. Chiang Mai and Rai) then into Laos (Ventiane to Luang Prabang), across into Vietnam and then down from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh, across Cambodia via Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, t ...

Lao's enchantment

Posted by cybervlad on 14/9/2011 at 11:18

*** Lao's Enchantment *** Prologue I can't say that I love a winter too much, but fluffy snowdrifts and cold clear air are fun. Sometimes. Unfortunately this year there is no winter. No snow. Temperature is around zero. Is this December?! I returned from my trip to Cambodia and Thailand only 2 week ago, but I fly back there in my mind almost every day. Strange, but usually I do not feel those symptoms of "nostalgia for SEA" at least 2-3 months after returning home. Anyway, I must to ...
