4 Countries in 10 Days - SE Asia Backpacking Trip

So many photos taken last week.
So many wonderful memories attached in our hearts.
Now it's time to sit down and share the stories...


4 countries in 10 days - More photos to come! :)

Last week (10-19 December 2009) was a great holiday, our escape from daily routine, for me & my highschool mates.

The routes are: Jakarta - Singapore - Kuala Lumpur - Ho Chi Minh - Bangkok - Jakarta

Three of us had so many experiences during our backpacking trip through 4 countries for 10 days, and we only spend $300 for this trip! We proved the theory of "travelling can be cheap but still fun!" :)

In Singapore, we had wonderful time with my colleagues in Singapore & I’d love to meet them again some day, they are so nice! :D We visited a lot of tourist attractions, a big thank you for my super-duper kind boss!

In Malaysia, we visited Malacca (2 hours from KL) with my friend who stay in Kuantan as lecturer. He took 4 hours to get into KL from Kuantan only for guiding us to get to Malacca, wahhh it's so very nice of you Dib! Thanks a lot yah! :D After sightseeing in Malacca, we almost can not go back to KL, because we can not get the return tickets! All already sold out! Luckily, then we found 4 tickets to KL. It was an adventurous trip, I think, hehehe…

In Vietnam, because all tourist spots are in walking distance, we can just go walk-walk-walk, from our hostel (in Pham Ngu Lao, District 1) to Saigon River. The pedestrian way is so convenient so we really enjoy our walking around Ho Chi Minch. :D The first night when we just arrived in Ho Chi Minh also so memorable, it's turns out that night Vietnam win over Singapore in SEA Games 2009, so the main roads was full with Vietnam supporters with their euphoria. All we can see in minibus taxi was just Red & Yellow, which are the colours of Vietnam's flag.

In Thailand, we met a lot of inspiring backpackers who stay in our hostel. (It’s a backpacker hostel named “Suk11”, located in Sukhumvit, Bangkok).

We met Simon from Germany, who had been travelling around SE Asia in 2 months after he graduated from university (and he will start working in January 2010~ Goodluck Simon!). We met Per & Louise from Norway, a nice couple who when in their retired time, they decided to go travelling around the world (now they are in Koh Samet, enjoying the beach & the sun!). We met Fritz from California, who lose his job in Dubai 1 years ago and then he spend his time to go travelling and see the world, he also had visited the east side of Indonesia! We also met Hilde from Brussel, we shared taxi to go to the airport. She need to find bananas as souvenir for her friends in Brussel. But the clock is ticking, and we need to go to the airport fast! Thank God then we found the bananas in a hawker stall when we're in our way to the airport. Hahaha it's so memorable & funny. :)) They are so inspiring, and I like the way they enjoy their life.

We also visit old city Ayutthaya, 2 hours from Bangkok. And in Bangkok, we tried almost ALL public transports, Bangkok have excellent public transport systems so it’s almost impossible to be lost in this big city. :)

As my friend said, "Travelling is good for ur soul."
And now it seems like we addicted to it. :D

+ + + + +

More stories in Bahasa Indonesia* will coming soon.
Thanks for reading! :)

*My grammar skill is terrible, thus I'd prefer to write the details in Bahasa, haha~! :D


Share the Travel Spirit!
