Epic Train Travel In Asia: China, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia train journeys. Over the past year and a half Audrey and I have been fortunate enough to have taken some incredible train journeys all over Asia including China, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia. Compared to any other form of transportation, we prefer taking the train. Train trips to us are a time for relaxation, getting caught up on work and enjoying the scenery. Do you love to travel by train? The following is a list of the videos this compilation includes:

    So, it has railway that connects through Combodia and Thailand. My friend travelled to Vietnam before and he thought Thailand is much better than Vietnam because he did enjoyed playing go kart in somewhere Thailand. South East Asia has many fun things to play and also having more wonderful landscapes and streetscape to colouring every travellers life. Bless you all.

    Great stuff! You guys looked like you had an amazing time :D. I'm flying out from London to teach in India for 4 months, then flying over to Thailand, and then my plan is to somehow return home by train! What are the fluctuations in prices like around Asia? How much do you think itll cost just for travel from thailand to bangkok? I plan to go through cambodia, stay in vietnam for a while, then up to bangkok, then the trans-siberian route to Russia – then home.

    Hey Bud great set of vids! ive seen a couple from you and your girls adventures through Southeast Asia. Kudos to you both its really nice of you both to share your experiences. I have a question for you as i am planning of heading back to SEA next year to do a "Stay as long as my money lets me trip lol!". I wish to go sometime mid next year, and what i was curious about was what you and your gf did for online work? Did you have a travel blog or something along those lines?  I know making money online really helps as a prime source of income while on the road. Any tips or advise on income strands online one can do whilst traveling to help supplement travel funds? Would really appreciate any information on the subject.

    Thanks again! take care you too and i wish you both safe travels!!   :)

    It is kinda hard to figure this video out from how you've put it together.  So I'll take it as an old man watching kids having a fun time.  That tells me nothing about the surroundings you're showing us.  It isn't hard to see you're having fun – especially together.  And that's the best part for a fun trip.  But I get this idea that you've been on such trips before.  And That tells me you should have been much more accommodating to we folks who haven't (where, when, what, and does she really love you, or am I imagining it?)  I will say this:  Try India with the same enthusiasm.  The Indians will LOVE seeing how happy you are.  You'll get better deals on tickets, taxis, tours, and Tastier Meals !!  just because of your happy smiles – – In India, that is.

    Sam, how was the train ride from Chiangmai to BKK ? Was it comfortable ? How's the scenery ? How was the food on the train ? We have been thinking about catching the train from BKK to Chiangmai on our next trip. Thanks.

    LOL @ hearing China for Toronto.  The Southeast Asians really don't get our accents all that well do they?  I remember being at mamak stalls in Malaysia and saying butter naan… they're like ah?! Had to imitate the accent and say buttttteerrrrrrrr (roll the r at the end) naaan!
