Merge with Southeast Asia[edit]

I propose that we merge this article with Southeast Asia. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 03:37, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Support -- this is an old name, not a region. Ground Zero (talk) 15:15, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
I disagree. Indochina is Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, which is not the same as Southeast Asia and is a region as well as an old name. Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:52, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Of course you're right -- I had a temporary loss of sanity. But I don't see a need for a separate article. (Apparently, the Wikivoyage community hasn't seen the need to add any substantive information to the article in the 13 years since it was imported from the predecessor site.) This nomenclature issue can be addressed in the introduction to the Southeast Asia article. Ground Zero (talk) 17:25, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
I disagree. This brief article is all that's needed, but it's good to have, IMO. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:56, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
You'd rather have a definitional article that provides no travel information than incorporating the definition into an article that does provide travel information? Do we have other definitional articles? Ground Zero (talk) 23:09, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Persian Gulf would be another example. Yes, I would. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:54, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Sorry to jump in so late, but this article should stay. But I'd be happy to remove the mention of Peninsular Malaysia from the article. That was something I added in based on what I read in Wikipedia, but in practice, I have never heard of Peninsular Malaysia ever being referred to as part of Indochina. On the other hand, I've heard people using a loose definition of Indochina that includes Thailand and Myanmar, although I think perhaps a more appropriate name for such a grouping would be the Mekong Nations (strictly not correct though, since the Mekong actually starts in China).

There was no consensus to merge when this was proposed, so the proposal was removed. Ground Zero (talk) 22:08, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
They reached the wrong conclusion, in my opinion, and I don't think we should follow their error. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:40, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
