Outline – Head to the S.E.A – Update 3

Plan changes again.

I am so lucky to have friends working in tourism field in the central of VN. They helped me out full of info about transportation from Hue or Vinh to Lao Bao or Cau Treo. Both of these borders are safe to pass and now many people do to go Vientiane for S.E.A Games 25.  Besides, I would love to visit Vinh – Uncle Ho’s hometown.

A friend of mine gave me info about Burma. I figure out a bit for this trip.

I do not know if this is the last update of my S.E.A outline, haha 😀

I choose Burma. I will arrange 30-day-20$-travel visa. I will fly from Thailand to  Burma (a 2-way ticket).

No specific plan here… I am still looking into Burma trip


Yangon→ Kuala Lumpur: one-way airplane

Kuala Lumpur → Melaka: bus

Melaka →  Kuala Lumpur to fly to Indonesia


Take a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Jakarta, Indonesia.

I will spend around 1~2 weeks here to wander in Jakarta, Bandung, Bogor, and Yogyakarta.

No specific plan for this country. Road transfers are mainly bus and train but I will figure out which one is safe for myself later.

Malaysia-Borneo part

Fly to Borneo from Indonesia.

I have not plan for this Borneo since I think it will be easy to find out what to do here for one week.


Borneo → Singapore: airplane

Singapore → Saigon: 2.5 hr airplane
