Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam

I have been outside the country together with my travel hubby three times. Our first trip was in Singapore & Malaysia
wherein we crossed border by plane. Second trip was in Hongkong & Macau where we boarded a ferry to cross
border. This time, we went to Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam and cross the border by land. Below was our

About pinay travelaholic

A Filipina who loves to travel. Born with a family of travelers and started traveling when she was just 2months old. Raised in the hustle and bustling life of the metro but has savored the laid back lifestyle of the countryside during summer vacations. At a very young age, she has experienced being stranded on a train for 3 days, being thrown inside the window of the bus just to save a seat and “top loaded” (riding on the roof) on a PUJ just to reach their destination. …Traveling became her adventure since then.

    awesome post kasama budget😉 we’ve done budget traveling in hcm and siem riep separately and have only done 3 countries at one time last sept (bkk-sg-kl). in vietnam i spent roughly php 23k (greater bulk spent on pasalubong and souvenirs). the bkk sg kl tour set us back at maybe almost p50k each incl airfare. keep it up!

      Naku masyado ngang malaki expenses mo and i bet NF ang umubos ng pera mo sa Vietnam🙂. Airline promo fares is always the first and important part in my every travel local or abroad. once availed, start na ng planning. thanks for appreciating and keep traveling!
