Indonesia: Second 60 day visa

Posted by WonderingTsar on 28/4/2011 at 09:59

I was planning on going to Singapore and applying for a fresh one. There are some old posts on another travel forum saying that you can get an agent (sponsor) to extend it twice in country for 30 days each, but you have to be in a big city. Is that still the case? How much does it cost it and is Bali big enoug ...

Haad Yao to Langkawi on Tigerline

Posted by WonderingTsar on 11/3/2011 at 10:08

Hi all The Tigerline ferry goes from various points in South West Thailand then Haat Yao (near trang) then Koh Lipe on to Langkawi Malaysia. I know that there is an im/emigration office on Lipe, but how does it work (stamp out of Thailand) if you are going direct from Haat Yao to Langkawi? I don't think that there is an immigration/emigration office in Haat Yao. Do Tigerline wait for you to go ashore at Lipe and get stamped out there, or is there a Thai office in Langkawi, or what? I want ...

Since thereis not much information about crossing de Le Thanh border in Vietnam intoCambodia by motorbike. I’ll write down our experience with this bordercrossing.

We couldn’tgo futher and had to ride all the way back and take the 14 to Pleiku. The road we thought was quicker was 14C. At Pleikutake the road to ‘La dom’ were the Le ...

Posted by gottagetaway on 9/3/2011 at 11:47

I'm ready to bounce in a matter of weeks. What I had previously planned to do was to fly in to Bangkok on a 90day roundtrip ticket, then explore the region (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, maybe Indo if I have the cash for a ticket there and back), taking each new destination as I decide to go there, and then return to Bangkok to fly out at the end of my travels. One of my goals right now is to teach in the region, preferably in Korea or Taiwan, or perhaps Japan. I just found out that my friend from ...

Siem Reap to Bangkok (& vice versa)

Hello! I'm part of a group of 9 people heading towards Siem Reap from Bangkok. Have been reading up on the Internet about the most viable ways but most articles are contradictory. Was wondering if y'all could advise on the best possible way. If we leave Siem Reap at 4pm, is it possible to get to the Thai-Cambodia checkpoint by before it closes? And then from the Checkpoint is it possible to get a private taxi (or two) straight to Suvarnabhumi Airport or at least Bangkok? We have a flight to ...

hanoi to luang prabang

Just wondering if anyone could give me a clear answer on this topic. My bf and I are wanting to get to Luang Prabang from Hanoi sometime around the 25th of Feb. We're having a hard time figuring out the safest overland route for this. Flying is a potential option if there doesnt seem a good way, however the cost is about 180 each, way over our budget so we would really prefer not to fly. Is there a direct bus that does this route? I have heard stories from other travellers about bad border ...
