TRAVEL | Wondering For The Most Efficient Itinerary... Vacation in 2014


I only have an hour to draft this vacation itinerary.


Listed below are the possible options for the summer vacation. Nothing is final yet.
Everything will depend on available resources. However, the top option in my list will be Korea, India, Laos and Vietnam. Singapore is fixed and will definitely be a part of the trip. The Philippines remain to be dependent on the outcome of the other options.
