    happy

    Hi there. Hmm, what can i suggest to you??? I travel to Thailand quite often and last trip I went Bangkok - Singapore then back to Brisbane, Australia. I would say Malaysia would be like Singapore, an array of Cultures (Malay, Chinese and Indian). Just soak up as much as you can of Asian culture and enjoy yourself, I sugesst taking an Isan (north-eastern) trip in Thailand (esp. Nakhon Ratchasime a.k.a Khorat!). Singapore to me really was Sydney in Asia, take time out to visit Temples, Mosques, eat locally, strett food is alwyas yummy and the best (no similarities to Dehli Belly), food is always fresh. Just go have fun!

    No, I don't think so. UK residents does not have to apply for visa to enter these 3 countries. All you need to ensure that you passport in more than 6 months away from its expiry date.
