Cambodia-Vietnam Border Crossing Guide


Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam is easily accessible from Siem Reap, Cambodia via two bus rides. You may choose to fly if you’re not a fan of long land travels, but it will definitely cost more. Since we were on a budget, we went with the bus option and only shelled out around PHP 1,800 per person when we travelled from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh via Giant Ibis last June.

Indochina Backpacking Travel Guide: 2-Week Itinerary


WARNING: We wanted this guide to be as helpful as possible so please prepare yourself for a looong post ahead. ✌️ Indochina has always been on our bucket list, and to say that we’re happy we’ve finally fulfilled this dream is an understatement. We’re over the moon! The planning that came along with it was not easy but we embraced it nonetheless. For two weeks, we were able to travel to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. And we only spent a total of PhP 44,830.58 each — including airfare, shopping, tours, food and transportation costs.

What to Pack: Prepping for a 2-Week Backpacking Trip Across Indochina


Being the planning nerds that we are, another thing we personally look forward to when traveling (aside from making the itinerary) is actually planning and organizing the things we should bring 😅 However, we’ve never been in a trip longer than a week, so this 2-week Indochina backpacking trip was definitely a fun challenge, requiring us to travel light and fit two-week’s worth of things into a couple of carry-on bags. Below is a rundown of the things we did bring and how we organized them for an efficient and hassle-free commute.

Thailand-Laos Border Crossing Guide


Travelling overland from Thailand to Laos is quite easy, especially if your country is a member of the ASEAN. Filipinos for example get to enter Laos visa-free, granted that the trip won’t exceed the 30 days. One of the major factors that make the mentioned overland border crossing relatively easy is the First Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge. It connects Thailand’s northernmost province, Nong Khai, to Laos’ Vientiane Prefecture, which are separated by the Mekong River.


Taiwan 5D 5N Travel Itinerary


Last November, we, along with our bestfriends (aka boyfriends), traveled to the land of xiao long bao (we made that up)–thanks to an impulsive promo fare booking done almost a year ago. In 5 days and 5 nights, we were able to (in no particular order) visit the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, shop at Ximending, try the original Din Tai Fung in Xinyi, climb Elephant Mountain, feed our artsy souls at Huashan1914 Creative Park, explore Northern Taiwan, visit a national park, walk around Beitou and eat our hearts out at the Shilin Night Market. All these in under P20,000, including airfare, visa application fees, taxes, etc.
