Just wait until you find out you can't see the cards being introduced and realize you are being cheated.


Hahahaha but it's probably not as big a deal that the cards come from China in that part of the world 😂

I have made a few changes, I am not going to Pakse, Laos because the journey there sucks and the journey from there to Bangkok is a long bus/train trip. I was debating whether to go to Pakse anyways. This way I can just fly from Savannakhet to Bangkok at the end of my trip.

Also I was talking to a friend of mine who grew up in India and she told me not to bother going to Jaisalmer. The main attraction is camping in the desert and riding camels, both of which I did in Israel and I wasn't a big fan of riding the camel. She says there is nothing else to do there and it is quite far off the beaten path. It's a 12 hour train ride each way.

I'll send someone else over there who knows stuff about the oriental world and wouldn't die of starvation.

You won't die of starvation in the orient but you may well die of "additives" such as insecticides, fusel oil, diesel fuel, etc. Resort areas and border towns would be my worst fears.

Why would resorts and border towns be your worst fear?

So I've got my ticket booked to Asia for just under 4 months starting in January.

Based on what I read I your 1st TR, I thought you would consider including the Philippines. I've lived there before, and you might enjoy many side trips as well with a companion.

Sadly, I was not into VP or BJ when I lived there.

Or, review the list of casinos opening elsewhere in Asia:

There will be several new casinos opening in 2018, so it would be a good time to enjoy marketing perks!

Have a great trip!

I would like to go to the Philippines at some point but it isnt at the top of my list at the moment. Actually it's quite far down my list. So many interesting places to go that it's hard to go everywhere.

I do follow worldcasinodirectory for casino openings. Thanks for that. I think the only new one I'll hit is the one in Daman, India.

Angeles City might be interesting to put on your Philippines list. You can go backpacking in the National Park.😳

Do you think there's some guy over there who claims he is losing because of American made cards?

And also he has a Christian sounding screen name like, Prince of Peace, and everybody is like, "from what I understand about Christianity, you don't seem very Christian."
