Hey there,

Im planning on spending 2/3month in Thailand and then onto Cambodia. This is my first ever time travelling and il be doing it myself. I was just wondering if there is any hints tips etc that anyone can give. I have only recently started to look into and well to be honest a little bit nervous and dont really know where to start.

Any information that can be giving would be mahoooosively appreciated

Cheers folks

Chat with the Thai Embassy in the UK and decide what visa you will need to buy. Cambodia will sell you a 30 day visa when you arrive at their border. Thai Imm. will give you a free 15 day entry permit when you cross back into Tland after Cambodia. Or a free 30 day entry permit if you choose to fly back into BKK. I would fly BKK-PNH on Air Asia and come back from Siem reap overland. Here is a good resource for all things Cambodia.

I would head over to Khao San Road in BKK upon arrival. There are thousands of young backpackers doing just what you are: bumping around SEA spending as little as possible. You are certain to meet others that have 'been there, done that' before you. Chat with them about your plans and somebody will have already done it. They will have ideas on where to stay, how to get there, what to avoid. Stay 3-4 days in BKK and you should have some new friends to travel with. Just be flexible and where you are going and you will not be alone for long. Relax and enjoy your stay in SEA.

Good luck with your planning.
