Cambodia, believe it or not, is further away than Vietnam! (and outside the Top 20). Check a map and you'll see that's true.

Kyrgyzstan is pretty hard to spell. Could you also accept slight variations, like 'kyrgystan'?
+2
Level 75
Feb 28, 2016
Sure; kyrgystan and a few other similar spellings work now.

Are you sure? Didn't work for me. Can you make sure type-ins are set to Auto?

Why on earth do you channel the energy you could spend learning to spell Kyrgyzstan correctly instead on asking to get a point for spelling it wrongly?

The only problem with typing those cities for me is that I end up pressing random keys. I can type them fairly well, but it takes me some time to correct.

If you put as much energy into spelling the country correctly as you have creating this post, you won't need to post the post.

Some of these countries are listed as further away than they actually are. Thailand for example is 282 miles away from India's Narcondam Island. Indonesia's Rondo Island, as well as Malaysia's Perak Island are 98 miles and 354 miles away from India's Great Nicobar Island respectively. And Laos's Northern most border is 427 miles away from India's eastern border.
