Confused first time traveller. HELP!!!!
Basically I am planning a trip around SE Asia for 3 months, the typical route over land. Start in Bangkok and ending the trip there too. My question is if I book a return flight Manchester-Bangkok, then Bangkok-Manchester through SKyscanner whilst at home. with 3 months inbetween the dates will I need a Thai visa even though I will not be staying in Thailand over the 30 day arrival visa. For example I plan to stay in north Thailand for 2 weeks then move on to Laos for 2 weeks, then so on and eventually return to south of Thailand and back to bangkok for the final 3 weeks of my trip. so technically I will only be in thailand for 5 weeks out of the 3 months I am there. HELP!!!
