It has its seedy side, you like that or you don’t, but it has a lot of culture too. Now becoming VERY expensive. Must see; the old capital Sukothai & Kanchlanaburi (bridge on the river kwai) best to avoid full moon parties & Phuket!
The Ankor Wat Cambodia. Owing to the huge Chinese influence and government greed for money the county is changing very rapidly.
Must see Ankor Wat (of course) & Karchi near the border with Loas. Best to avoid Sihanoukville, now a Chinese gambling city!
A big place! We went to some places you’ve probably never heard of! Good fun & cheap but very little English!
Many islands, can be cheap but becoming very more fundamentalist & getting hard to find booze. Lots of places to see.
Yes I know it’s a part of Indonesia! Now the cheap backpacker paradise it used to be! 5 star hotels now dominate.
Pedang went from backpacker heaven to $150 a night hotel rooms! Where did it all go wrong (or, of course, right if you can afford $150 a night!
