I am pretty sure you can get visa's for Laos and Cambodia at the Borders but the rest I don't know. You need to look for government websites for your respective countries. Visa's are selective for which country you are a citizen of so you may not require a visa for countries that I do. Check it out.
India and Nepal both require visas which you can get prior to your departure from your home country, if you are staying in Thailand longer than 30 days or do not have proof of an onward flight from thailand you will require a visa which can also be arranged before you go really easily, Laos requires a visa which I think you can actually get from visited their embassy in whichever country you are...the girl i was travelling with got her Laos Visa in Bangkok a couple of hours before she went....Malaysia, singapore you just get your stamp at the border so no need for a visa!!!I would reccommend that you contact or look on the websites of every country you are going to to make sure what visas you require for your personal situation though!!!!!
thankyou very much guys, I have read that when entering nepal you can get a 30 day visa on entry does anyone know if this is true?
I've e-mailed someone at the embassy ill post thier reply tomorrow
thanks for reading
Im in the process of sorting visas out for India and Nepal at the moment and I was told by STA and the embassy in London that I had to organise my visa prior to going...however a friend who recently was in India decided whilst over there to cross into nepal, she went by bus and was able to get a visa issued on arrival when she got there so it must be an option?!?!
I found this site for Laos which seems pretty good.
