hi guys..

well after uming and ahhhing the last 2 years and freinds constantly pulling out on me at the last minute ive booked my south east asia trip this morning...in order to get the cheapest flight ive had to fly from london via brunei(royal brunei)then onto thailand...(bangkok)..has anyone done this sort of trip before..im also under the impression that i have to stop off in dubai so the plane can re-fuel...it seems like a long round about way of doing things but was a good £300 less than any other more direct flights...

anyway il be arriving on the 23rd of this month and am planing to stay in a hostel which is pretty much at the end of the runway at bangkok,catch up on some sleep and re-charge ready for my adventure...is anyone going to be about around this time...my plans are to head into bangkok for a good few days then on upto the north to chiang mai,really wanna go to the elephant sanctuary then accross into laos,into vietnam and down the east coast before crossing over into cambodia and back into thailand,then heading south to see a few of the islands before heading down to singapore for my flight home on the 14th april.."trip just over 11 weeks in total"...

im pretty flexible as to the places im going to whilst im there and am open to any ideas and suggestions...any advice or informtion on anything at all i should know about then also let me know..now its booked im feeling a little anxious and nervous but am sure its gonna be one hell of an experience...

IF YOUR GONNA BE IN THE THAILAND,VIETNAM REGION IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS LEAVE ME A MESSAGE AND WE CAN TRY HOOK UP,BE GOOD TO HAVE SOME COMPANY AND FELLOW TRAVELLERES ON BOARD!!!

You may run into difficulty boarding your aircraft at home as you often get asked to prove onward travel. Check with your airline NOW!

You must have a visa arranged before reaching the border at Vietnam. Your other destinations are visa on arrival.

We have some pics, maps and stories on our trips though all the countries that you have mentioned here... [snip] that may help.

Happy & safe travels

Bob
