KUALA LUMPUR – HO CHI MINH – SIEM REAP – BANGKOK TRIP

Coming from our South Korea trip, the travel itch continued and I reckoned that the upcoming holy week break would be the perfect time.  Perfect because I would be done with all the April 15 tax filings then... Yahoo!  But then March arrived and the airfares were soaring high day by day.  It was a habit already to check all airlines daily hoping for a fare steal.  Then on March 3, an answered prayer; AirAsia went on sale, not bad at P5600++ return trip for Manila - Kuala Lumpur.  I booked at once, originally for a 6 day trip.  I plotted our itinerary and the flights in between but I failed to squeeze all 4 country plan in such a short time.  So I rebooked making it an 8-day trip but was charged a P1600 fee... Okay, okay... I know, my bad.  After our return flight was confirmed, I booked the rest of the flights, all through AirAsia; Kuala Lumpur - Ho Chi Minh, Siem Reap - Bangkok and finally Bangkok - Kuala Lumpur.  

An actual account of our 8-day Indochina amazing race trip crossing 4 countries (excluding Philippines) on a shoestring as follows:
