Backpacking Southeast Asia, into Bangkok and out of Singapore
Question: Hi there, me and my best friend have booked flights to Bangkok arriving on the 28th May.
We were wondering if there is a particular "best way round" in terms of ease of travel/transport/border crossings/visa requirements? How long it takes roughly. Key points we "have to see/go" anything worth avoiding.
We plan to arrive in Bangkok then either head to north Thailand-Laos-Vietnam (north to south)-Cambodia-back into Thailand-touring south Thailand-Malaysia-flying out of Singapore on the 12th Sep.
Or arrive in Bangkok and head east-Cambodia-Vietnam-Laos-Thailand (north to south in one go)-Malaysia-Singapore.
The only keys points and times we need to keep are.........the arrival date and departure date and we need to be in on Phi Phi island on the 11th august to meet friends.
Is there a way around the problem of only have 15 days visa when re-entering Thailand? as which ever way we go I think we would a few more nights!
