were going to thailand and vietnam and laos for 6 weeks in the summer,
if anyone has any information on visa for vietnam and laos that would be great
also and spectacular sites for the 3 would be helpful, we know we want to ride elephants in thailand, halong bay in vietnam and tubing in laos
well be in vietnam for the first 10 or so days then back to thailand for the full moon party and a spell in laos for the tubing
any advice would be much appreciated
also any cheap flight websites to get to hanoi from bangkok would be helpful thanks
Searching cheap flight from BKK to Hanoi , you can use airasia.com and thaitourismguide.com/flight
Where do you want to go for riding the elephant? All over the country. The best places are Chaing Mai or Chaing Rai because in the north of Thailand there are elephant camps where you can see its talent and some elephant shows.
The place near bkk you can ride the elephant is at Nongnuch Garden, Pattaya , Suansampran, Nakhon Pathom and in Ayutthaya.
Check out the info over on Travelfish - really good leads there
Check out the "own an elephant for a day" at the Patara Elephant Farm in Chiang Mai for an outstanding day.
