Right here we go....I'm very close to paying for my RTW ticket and have just about sorted my itinary, however I'm still not sure on one part of my trip, originally I planned on travelling across land from Singapore up through Malaysia and into Thailand but have since heard about serious problems in the southern provinces of Thailand. According to fco.gov it's a big no no....what do they know!!!!
I'm now considering flying from Kuala Lumpa (think thats how you spell it!) to Phuket then carrying on across land to Vietnam, I would prefer not to do this as it will use one of the flights on my ticket that I could use later on and more importantly I will miss out a big chunk of my trip.
Has anyone got any thoughts on this?
Maybe some of you have crossed this border?
Is it really that bad?
