So /trv/, I've come into a small amount of money in the past couple of days and I'm considering setting off in three weeks for a five-month trip around Asia.

My itinerary would probably be one month each (or thereabouts) in Thailand, then Cambodia, then Laos, the India then Sri Lanka.

I would be doing this alone, without much preparation. So my questions are as follows... in terms of visas and vaccinations, could I manage those needs as I travel? Eg, could I pick up visas as I go, and could I get any relevant vaccinations when I arrive in Thailand? Which...

>Vaccinations
Why would you wait to get them in Thailand, you think they're cheaper there? It's an interesting theory; may be true. Otherwise, why not get them all at once in the States, instead of wasting vacation time?
I hate vaccinations because you can never get a straight answer about the risk. Travel doctors are the only reliable people to ask and it's their job to say "don't risk it". As far as trusting advice from strangers on the internet, fuck that.
As far as rabies goes, most people get it because...

The most valuable thing about having a buddy while traveling in Asia is that you've got another pair of eyes and ears to look out for potential scams, and to support you while you haggle for prices.
But if you're not too gullible, there's no real need for a buddy.

>>1091126
I'll be leaving in three weeks so I was thinking I might not have time to get vaccinations at home if the doctor is booked up. I'd rather get them at home but Thailand is an option. Which vaccinations did you get? Strangely, I've never met anyone who has had the rabies jab!

I'm very outgoing and sociable and can make friends very easily but I'm just a bit aware that travel arrangements etc can be somewhat difficult in Asia (bus/train cancellations/amendments) and I wouldn't like...

Hey /trv/,

I made an India general a few months back that did pretty well. Now that I've just come back from several months in the Subcontinent, I've decided to use some of my free time to answer what questions I can and continue dwelling in the past. I won't pretend to be an all-around expert on every region, but, having worked in tourism and lived in Delhi, I do have an idea of what I'm talking about.

Stupid questions and troll replies will happily be ignored.

Just to get this one out of the way:

Good day trips from Delhi and Agra? Anything really but especially somewhere to see animals.
I couldn't seem to reserve trains so I guess I'll have to use buses instead. Any advice on which ones to reserve?

I'll get back to you on that. I was supposed to go to a bird sanctuary outside of Delhi with a few friends, but we never got around to it. I think it's about an hour drive from the city itself - I'll give him a message on WhatsApp in the morning and ask him for the name. If you're into zoos, the park in Delhi isn't half bad. However, if you'll be in India for a while, some of the best opportunities to see all kinds of exotic wildlife exists...

Any Aiesecers here? What was your experience like? I am thinking about teaching English in a Latin American country. Is this a good idea? I want to practice my Spanish, but I am a bit worried that Latin America will be dangerous for a girl like me. Also, what is the interview/selection process like? What kind of questions will they ask?

Mixed bag, some are totally legit, some are rag-tag groups that suck. Make sure it's a good organization on the other side and you'll be fine. Also don't expect to be taken good care of, that comes down to your own organization. If you're going to a poor country, you'll be living like the locals. It's fun, but don't expect Contiki crap.

Also Latin America is a very diverse place and varies considerably regarding safety.

>don't expect to be taken good care of
I think "travelling alone" implies that.

They seem to have a lot of projects in Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and Colombia. Are those countries safe-ish?

Also, are they really picky when selecting candidates after the interview? Like do they only pick the people with the most stuff on their CVs to go on these trips? Do they even care about how many extras curricular activities you took part in? I only took part in some volunteering...

No, it doesn't, because travelling and living are two different things.

Those countries are all enormous, and have cities and regions that are very safe as well as ones that can be dangerous. If you have you ask, do some more research on the countries themselves. Do you even know what...

I'm sure I'm not the only one here to try this. I'm taking a train to Chicago which arrives at 4pm. I will do a few hours of sightseeing and then around midnight head up to O'Hare and sleep there until my flight at around 7am. First is it possible to go through security at around midnight or 1am at O'Hare? And will they give me shit for sleeping there for a few hours? Also I hear the L is fairly unsafe to ride during the night in Chicago. Is riding the ohare branch of the blue line unsafe during this time as well? Thanks.

Certainly possible to go through security at that time of night in general, but airlines don't always let you check in for flights that far in advance. If you've already got a boarding pass, I don't think it would be a problem. But your gate probably won't have been assigned yet, etc. Worst case scenario, you have to...

If you have a boarding pass, you are checked in. But I have been in airports that don't let passengers in to the secured area before gates have been assigned--most recently, I showed up at LaGuardia with a boarding pass at 2AM or so for a flight that was supposed to leave at 6 something. They made me wait outside of security until four.

It's pretty good. Cape Town and the surrounds if definitely more scenic that what you'll experience in Johannesburg.

May be a be a bit close to the Winter season so you may experience cold wet weather, but the weather here as been lagging behind more than usual, so you might be good.

Quite! Didn't see much of Venezuela proper (from the airport to the hotel and then back to the airport), but Los Roques is pretty damn awesome. It benefits from being so separated from the rest of Venezulea, so the problems there only marginally seep into the island. The beaches there are breathtaking, perfect place for snorkeling and scuba diving. Also, one of the best places for kitesurfing I've been.

Something I loved about the main Island where the tourists stay, is that there are no hotels there, just...
