AVLB - Vietnam, Laos & Myanmar on a Shoestring

There's no time like now to take on an epic adventure. (Seriously, like right now.) Imagine five packed weeks of hitting up the best destinations that four countries in Southeast Asia have on offer. This trip covers a serious amount of ground (and some water, too.) Chill out on the most golden of golden beaches along Vietnam's sunny coast, cruise through Vietnam's famed Halong Bay, and trek among the rice paddies in Myanmar (Burma). This is one unique itinerary that every first-time (or repeat) visitor to Southeast Asia should experience.
