'SEA Travel Tips for Australians' - SEA is now Thailand.

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

'SEA Travel Tips for Australians' - SEA is now Thailand.

After reading this I would add "Assuming that the whole of SEA is just a variation on Thailand" is something else you should not do. The "article" was obviously written about Thailand but the author didn't think anyone would notice if he calls it SEA. No wonder so many people come to SEA thinking that the countries are all pretty much the same and interchangeable.

At least it warns you about ice in the beer, one of SEA's true cultural shocks for westerners. :beer3:
