i'm wondering if bringing a tent or tarp is a wise idea. i'm going cheaply but don't want to bring tent or tarp if i can't use it much. will i be hassled by cops? is camping safe there? or am I going to be in hotels and dorms for a few months? thanks again. this site is great! as are all who help!
I'd leave the tent at home. You can get good guest house accomodation for cheap all over SE Asia and if you splash out a little more for not much at all you can get some great accomodation. Of couse you will pay more in the larger cities but there are good deals to be had on accomodation all over this part of the world.
Like Alex said, leave the tent accommodation is cheap anyways. Rock on and party hard. Peace.
