54 year old Female Backpacker Travels Cambodia and Vietnam

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.

traveled with a buddy so the room was split

spent $500 excluding airfare ($245) over and visa ( $50)

1 internal flight, trains and boats
so about $38/day

PS u CANT eat well in Myanmar no matter what u pay LOL
Wow Burma has train. This is better than Cambodia. We don't have train for carrying people only cargos. I can't remember I read somewhere you wrote. It seemed like it is really expensive traveling there. I guess I will wait until Burma becomes a backpacker-friendly country like Cambodia Vietnam and Thailand. Anyway it would be great if you write your trip summary.
curious;
what do u mean backpacker friendly? ( CHEAP< SMELLY<WEARS WEIRD CLOTHES, LIVES ON LESS THAN $5/DAY etc etc)
Mynamar has Airplanes ( over 15 airports) trains, bus's, boats, Cars, tuk tuk, bicycles and motorcycles
fan room can be had for under $15 ( I had one in Katha for $6 with river view) and most major cites have dorm rooms.

The train from Mandalay to Bagan was $2,80 and 9 hours upper class, regular class ( hard seat) was $1.90
from mandalay to Mytkyina 20 hours in a sleeper compartment for $23, regular class less than $5
I agree that some backpackers are smelly and whatever like you mentioned, but not all actually. I met a few they are actually clean and knowledgeable. The reasons that we chose to travel as backpacker, because we are young and we don't earn much money to stay and eat at fancy place.

I went back to see what you previously wrote about your trip to Burma. I misread it. In fact Burma is really cheap. I was confused how you wrote the price of things. I can't believe the transportation there is really cheap.

Thank you for this, as i was a backpacker back in the early 70's, i never knew this
I always thought it was cause we carried easy to store an carry backpacks vs Samsonite luggage.

I hate writers like this that use others images yet do not credit them.

It's completely out of order, unless she paid for them
