We planned an amazing vacation in Vietnam, going around the country, exploring the food and what not. Checked the ticket prices from Bangalore to Ho Chi Minh, and a state of shock. We know that tickets should be booked in advance, but who would have expected such high prices for one way ticket to Ho Chi Minh. Anyways we started looking for the alternatives, and Kuala Lumpur stuck. We had plans for Thailand as well, and could have gone directly there, but life is too short for one country. The next moment we have booked some cheap tickets and are getting the entri visas done. And oh boy ! what a start to the trip! Srilankan airlines didnt let us board the plane as they need a transit visa ( the plane was via Colombo ) and we had to buy on the spot tickets to KL. Circle of life.
