route --> thailand/cambodia/vietnam/Laos/Thailand

I've now booked my flight.. ive got a return into bangkok , flyin in middle of june and out middle of august!! Being able to watch the word cup there has swung it for me! but india next year, mark my words!! ;)

My intial planned route is to head straight for cambodia, and do angkor etc.. do u think there will be any problems wit gettin hold of visas on the border? (are there any tours leading from bangkok to angkor?) or am i wimping out by doing that? Should i go it alone?

In regards to gettin visas (i.e. vietnam? laos?) should i get mine in bangkok before setting off? if so where do i get them from?

Sorry to bombard ppls with questions!

Cheers for all your help though!!

right since my last post, ive also looked at the reverse route of bangkok,thailand, travel north into laos, then into vietnam "lak sao", travel south to ho chi minh city (saigon), then into cambodia via angkor, through to bangkok, thailand again?!

clockwise or anti clock wise? or isnt there much of a difference!

thank you

Andy

Andy;
I don't think it makes much difference which way you go. I would try to avoid backtracking too much.

There are tour operators on the KSR area of BKK that do Angkor tours. You really don't need them. Go to talesofasia.com for great info on Cambodia. Has a free forum as well. You can ask questions about Cam. VN & Laos from guys that live there. If you go straight to Siem Reap area, take the bus/boat down to PP and get your VN visa there. You can get it in 1 day for about $30 from guesthouses or Lucky, Lucky Motorbike Rentals. Go PP-HCMC via boat/bus and take the open tour to HaNoi. Get your Laos visa in HaNoi. Tour Laos and come back into Thialnd with your free 1 month visa. That route makes sense to me. Good Luck and PM me if you need additional details.
