Jasmin If you want to do Vietnam, I can only say, try doing the Cuc chi tunnels if you have to pass through Saigon, if not, skip it/take a night bus up the coast. I took mine to Nha Trang as it's known to be one of the nicest beaches. Wish i would have made it to hanoi as I heard people a friendlier up north and i really wanted to see Sapa and Halong bay. Mui ne isn't that interesting apart from red sand dunes :) Good luck on your trip

Cambui Why do not you visit Viet Nam? It is more interesting if you spend some days in Viet Nam. I work for a travel agency in Viet Nam. You can find Viet Nam is very interesting by visiting our web site: www.naciholidays.com. You can contact me by email: mice@naciholidays.com.

daniellelowe Hi Sierra, I know I got a bit carried away when planning! I have flights books between the longer distances but plan on riding the reunification express in Vietnam and spending some time in the mekong delta in Cambodia. The main bulk of my trip is going to be in Cambodia and Vietnam so I can relax a bit more than in Bangkok (there for 3 days) and Yangon (2 days). Thought whilst Im in that part of the world squeeze as much in as possible and If I feel I've missed out I'll just go bak in 2013 :)

Sierra Have you been to BKK before? My last trip to Thailand I spent 2 weeks in BKK and 1 week in Krabi and it just wasn't enough. I made sure to carve out at least a month for Bangkok this time. I do love the city so much. I haven't been to Cambodia but it is on my list for a future trip. The long term goal is to live in Asia full time, but as I am sure you know, it is quite difficult for foreigners to find sustainable work in Asia. :(

daniellelowe Hey, nope never been to Bangkok before never been to Asia before so its a shame I'm cramming everything in but the way I see it is as an introduction then can spend months travelling it all at a later date. Yeh living in Asia sounds perfect but I bet its not easy. Had a few friends who used to do seasonal work in the big tourist towns in Thailand but that was never long term or permanent. Are you visiting any other parts of the world on this trip or is this strictly an Asia trip? x

Sierra This is strictly an Asia trip. I have a strong desire to go to Spain, Italy and Turkey- but I will have to wait until the next trip for that. :) I hope we are in the same area at the same time...are you traveling solo?
