I’m set on visiting Cambodia, and then I realized that Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam is near Cambodia so why not plan a trip wherein I can visit two to three south east asian countries? ( I blame my itching travelling feet for this, but the hell to it, I will probably reach a certain age wherein travelling is not so convenient).
So the reason why I’m blogging about it is to hopefully get other traveler’s say in my itinerary (well this is in its infancy stages and will probably change). So here’s my planned itinerary!
