try and get into Cambodia , Laos or Burma without a visa, no different for Vietnam.
people who go to cambodia do it all the time - and wait till they get to the airport and do not have to have one prior though in fact I did apply for the on line one but people say it's better to wait and do it at the airport as easier to extend the kind you get by NOT doing the tourist prior on line but getting a regular one at the airport on entry. So just what do you think Laos or Burma is going to do if you don't have one. Turn away a Caucasian. Come on.
