I have been reading for hours and I have found nothing but expensive companies sending things quickly over seas. I do not need that. A slow boat for a month or two is just fine. I don't know where to find this. It needs to be cheap too. 50 dollars maximum! its going to be around a 5 kg suitcase. Help please!

I apologize I asked the question in the bar before the comments one. I thought I was just supposed to explain it more. Anyway I would like to send a 5-6 kg suitcase from pnom penh Cambodia OR Ho Chi Minh Vietnam to Calgary, Canada OR Saskatoon, Canada. Whatever is cheaper. Please help :)

Well you maybe need to consider what it is reasonable to expect you can find in this regard in 2016.

To send a carry-on sized bag weighing 5kg. from Calgary to Vietnam will cost $140 for Surface Mail and $272 by air. See here: https://www.canadapost.ca/cpotools/apps/far/business/findARate?execution=e1s4

So how do you expect to find a way to do it for $50 in the other direction? Just because you want something doesn't mean it exists.
