Figure out the best place to stay on Khao San Road in Bangkok and where to escape when you've had enough of the mayhem. From Singapore Slings to the changes in Bejing after the 2008 Olympics, gab about it all here.

Cheap accomodation on Koh Samui, Thailand.

I found a bargain place, in Lamai, that charges just 5.800 - 6000 baht per month for a modern hotelroom with air con, cable tv, hotwater and fridge.
The daily rate is 395 baht. There's wi-fi too, you pay extra for that.
It's on the ring road, next to Lamai temple.

I think the best part of taking vacation now a days are the packages to which you can save money. I've seen this package to Bangkok a 3 days 2 nights with tours and inclusion of breakfast meals for a very low price. Just do a quick search on google and surely you'll find it. Seems great to have this kind of opportunity to grab.

Oh man! There's so much more Singapore can offer! I shall help you with what you can do in Singapore. Though a SMALL ISLAND, if we care to explore, there is a lot OF TREASURES in this island nation!

NATURE

- Farms in Lim Chu Kang, small countryside of S'pore!
- Treetop walk in KentRidge Park (MUST SEE!)
- Bt Timah Reserve (Monkeys, snakes, BIG SPIDERS, birds!)
- World-renowned zoo (animals in natural, enclosed habitats) and birdpark (with a LARGE NET CAGE with birds flying ALL AROUND!)
- Pulau Ubin, an offshore island belonging to S'pore, for a cycling experience in a tropical environment, plus BOARD WALKS!

SHOPPING

- Bugis street with little shops
- Orchard Road, main shopping district
- Mustafa Centre, 24 HOUR SHOPPING MALL in Little India! CHEAP!
- Neighbourhood malls along ALMOST EVERY TRAIN STATION!
- You can also cross the causeway from Singapore to Johor Bahru, Malaysia to do some shopping in City Sq. The clothes are generally CHEAPER by a bit. Their currency is Ringgit and 1 Singapore Dollar is about 2.30 Ringgit.

FOOD

- Geylang, S'pore's red light district, another sleazy side of S'pore, PLUS lots of good local food! Don't stray into the dark alleys though!
- Food courts in shopping malls with food from many places!
- Bedok interchange food centre (non-air con)

NIGHT LIFE

- Clarke Quay, riverside, with lots of pubs, bars, clubs
- Boat Quay, more of seafood restaurants and small bars
- Zouk
- Butterfactory

PLACES OF INTEREST

- Zoo
-Sentosa Island (beaches)
-Birdpark
- Downtown east, wild wild wet (swimming pool with slides and wave pool)
- Merlion
- Esplanade (arts centre)
- St Andrews's Cathedral (Singapore's oldest church)
- Arab street (some good arabic feel)
- Little India
- AND MANY MORE!

Laos - especially the north-east.

Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng are the obvious must-sees, but I simply loved Phonsovan and the Plain of Jars. Travelling further east by local bus to Sam Neaua, Vieng Xai and across the Na Maew/Nam Xoi border into Vietnam, was one of the best trips I've ever done! Just getting that little bit further off the popular tourist route is so rewarding; feels that little bit more authentic and challenging and the people are even more fantastic. Would definitely recommend!

If you are an American and you are visiting Asia, the first advice you need to know is 'Be Careful'. Asians see Caucasians or Americans as rich people. So make sure you protect and secure your things when you are traveling around. Put all your things in one bag - camera, phone, wallet, and other valuable items.

One problem you might encounter in Asia is the language barrier. Especially with Chinese, not everyone can understand English. It is important you know someone from the country you are visiting or you have a tourist guide with you.

For festivals, go to the Philippines! There are a lot of famous festivals like Sinulog in Cebu and Maskara Festival in Bacolod. You would surely enjoy these festivals and meet a lot of friendly people in the Philippines. :D

PHILIPPINES

If given the chance to travel the world, one country you should try visiting is Philippines. According to some rumors, it is not safe to visit Philippines. However, those are just rumors. With its 7,107 islands, you can do a lot in the Philippines.

Talk about food, they have more than enough delicacies and dishes to satisfy your hunger. Almost in any province you visit, they have their own specialties. From breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, they have Filipino foods that will make your mouth water and your stomach full.

Talk about travel and culture, Philippines is definitely rich when it comes to that. Go to beautiful beaches like the island of Cebu, Boracay, Pagudpud, Palawan, Mindoro and a lot more. The weather is perfect especially during the months of March, April and May, in short, summer time.
If you're looking for more cultural learning, you can visit various museums within the city and in provinces. The famous Ayala museum is a must-see museum in Manila. Surely, you will learn a lot from how the Philippines rose from downfall and got their independence.

I think in any province you go, you will see special and awesome attractions. Like if you go to Navotas, the wealth of that city is seen through its fishery/fish farm. The city is known to be the fish capital of the country. Therefore, if you are looking for cheap raw fishes, it's the place you should visit.

When you visit various Philippine travel websites, you'll learn that the Philippines is an awesome country to visit with numerous things to do, from day to night. :D

I highly recommend traveling to south-east Asia, especially the Philippines. It has many beautiful beaches, like the one in Boracay and in Caramoan, coupled with the Filipino's great culture and hospitality, you have a vacation you will remember forever. :)
