Ok good.

Make it clear on your dating site you are American (even if you are not). Just say you have Indian parents but was born and live in USA.

If money was in issue you could get 2-3 more times the value in Chiang mai as you could Bkk.

---Update---

WTF all the rooms around malate/makate are around 25-45$ per night..

Philippines has terrible prices for accomodation unless you rent out a condo or something for a month.

no point in going to chang mai for 2 nights and having to come back to bangkok. you do not have enough time for all that.

boracay is a 50-100 dollar short plane ride from manila.

check my cebu sheet for beaches near by.

I am on a 30 days 3 countries trip..

Kochi--->KL--->PP(1night)--->SR(2nights)--->BKK(7nights)--->Manila(7nights)--->Cebu(12 nights)--->KL--->Kochi

This is my first trip outside India,so I am trying to include as much as possible in the trip.

Also guys can someone explain about the difference between the travel insurance provided by credit cards and the travel insurance taken by a provider specifically for this trip??

I am planning to book only 1-2 nights in bkk/philly and for rest,talk directly with the hotel staff.I read it maybe cheaper.

Does agoda charge 15$ for cancellation of a booking? Its mentioned in the T&C..


@Dash you recommended that I try airbnb but won't the hosts have issues with me/girls coming in and out at all time of the day/night?

Apologies for asking too many questions,but I don't wan't to make unnecessary mistakes..

@Dash your manila trip report is not opening from me (which you have linked in the utimate philly sheet)

Have you already booked it? I'd say 30 days in one country would be a lot more practical and cheap and enjoyable. Thailand is perfect for a first timer.

No the hosts won't have problems with you having guests over. They hand you the keys and you won't see them again till you leave.

Click on my name then search the threads I created. You will see the Manila report. Might be grouped into the larger SEA thread.

Booked my hotel/hostels through booking.com

PP -- Mad Monkey hostel -- 1 night -- $7.70
SR -- Mad Monkey hostel -- 2 night -- $19.20
BKK -- Check Inn Hostel--Sukhuvmit 22,khlong tei -- 8 nights -- $212
Manila -- Excel In -- Makati -- 8nights --7 nights-- $221
Cebu -- Crowne Garden Hotel --salinas centre --Ayala Centre -- 12 nights -- $244

Any recommendations for hotels??

Now to book visas.

Will check airbnb for cebu and try to get a cheaper and good place near ayala mall(now its 1-2km far)..

---Update---

Also after my visa is processed,will reduce the days at each hotel to 1-2 days and will try to deal directly with the hotel.heard that there may be price difference from online to direct booking..
