I had made a previous thread but it got deleted.
I'm travelling to Thailand (already have a visa) and then heading to Vietnam, or Vietnam and Cambodia.
Anyhow, I'll be in Bangkok for a couple of days. Should I get my Vietnam visa online, with myvietnamvisa, or go to the embassy?
I don't know but it has becomes like Japan in '08 in terms of meme status. I guess SEA is the only affordable travel destination in the world and it has Asians so the NEET crowd is guaranteed.
I'm towards the end of a SE Asia trip now; I think it's cheaper and easier to go to the embassy. We gave our hotel in cambodia our passports (lol) and 50$ a person and they took care of everything. We met a number of people that were paying to get it online and then paying like a $50 "stamping fee" at the border.
Also Hanoi was fucking awesome. A more lowkey/chill vibe than Saigon. How much time will you have over here?
It's only a meme destination for backpackers/young people. Especially unmarried.
Top 10 destinations in order are:
France, USA, Spain, China, Itaky, Turkey, Germany, UK, Russia, and Mexico.
Just outside the top 10, in order, are Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand. If you're talking money made off of tourism, Thailand, Macau,and Hong Kong move into the top 10, with Mexico, Russia, and Turkey dropping out. Granted, if we're talking cities, Bangkok and Singapore are number 3 and 2, respectively, but their significancell as hubs plays a role in that. So how are they meme?
Hey I'm on study abroad in SG right now and I just got the okay from immigration authorities to go out of the country, (Foreign ID Card) anyone know any cool things to do specifically in Malaysia and Indonesia? Also is the Cambodian visa available on arrival?
Also would you recommend signing up for hostel networks? Is it worth it? I really like Singapore, but I'm gonna have to start using some of these weekends to go exploring the region when I'm not stuck doing homework at a stressful asian uni. Any countries other than Malaysia/Indonesia/Indochina to recommend? Thanks guys!
what do in malaysia? i'll be there for three weeks.
is the rainforest worth seeing? i think about hiking there for one week or more. how much is a flight to borneo and back and is it worth it?
I'm in vietnam right now. For my visa i get an invitation letter online (12 $ ) then i paid my visa 25 $ for a month. I didnt went to the ambassy because they ask for 70 or 80 $ ...
The invitation letter seems a little bit fake because it's not from the ambassy but it works for everyone. You just need to print it before you go
If you want to see the rainforest then taman negara would be best. It's the largest forest reserve in the peninsula. You could go to some of the islands on the east coast of the peninsula like perhentian or tenggol. I can't remember how much a flight to borneo is but your best bet is air asia. If you arrive on the 8th of February, you're just in time for Chinese New Year, which means lots of lion dances, chinese food, fireworks and KL is basically half open
leaving on a 2 month journey to SEA! first time traveling for a longer period of time so wish me luck /trv/!
Well besides Mount Kinabalu, it isn't that particularly different in terms of geography from the rest of Indonesia. Though culture in Malaysia Brunei and Indonesia can be somewhat different. You get more Chinese influences in the Malaysian part, mostly Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, than the rest of the place. Also FYI, Brunei is full on shariah at the moment, so you can drink alcohol in Malaysia, but the second you step over the border you'll get prosecuted. Labuan island is duty free btw and has some nice girls.
