Dan, if you go through northern Europe (ie Russia, then hit Mongolia, China, Vietnam and go into SE Asia that way you won't need to worry about avoiding countries. Maybe you should look at a route you want to take and any countries you think are unsafe to travel through, look at ways of bypassing that country to get you to the far east.All the countries to avoid that are mentioned so far are easy to avoid going from Europe to the far east.

Don't know what route you're planning but I think Algeria should be on the list of countries to avoid and I'd go around Afghanistan not through it.

I'm going to a country next to Algeria-->Tunise.I hope it's okay country to visit to!

I'd love to go to Tunisia. Right there between Algeria and Lybia. Just don't cross any borders and you should be fine. Plus I don't think anybody has anything against the Finns .

Should be great. When are you going? For how long?

[quote=Danb] Can anyone tell me if there are any countries i should avoid?

Hi Danb,
dunno if you maybe have already made up your mind about which countries to avoid on your travels. As much as I would love to go there I've been told at the embassy Nepal is not a very safe choice at the moment:(. But I'm sure you will visit many other beautiful places.

Tunisia is amazing!
coming from England in a built up area by manchester it was amazing to see a country with so much empty space and without everything ahaving to be built up. Go to El Jhem the colliseum (i think thats how spell it) if your there its amazing!

Hey Steph,

Did you go to Tunesia on your own? How long did yoy stay there? What did you see & do? I'm thinking of going there this Summer.

Danb: From what I understand, Burma/Myanmar is very difficult to enter. Even if you were to secure a visa (very difficult) you are only allowed to stay for 7 days. I would consult the embassy if you wish to travel through Burma/Myanmar.

I would avoid the Kosovo Region, as there are still many landmines. Further I wouldn't go to Moldova, and I've heard bad stories about Ukraine.

I've been to Burma 3 times. A long time ago they had a 7 day limit, now it's 28/days. It's also very easy and straight forward to get the Burmese visa. It's also an easy country to travel around and the people there are the nicest & friendliest I've ever met anywhere in the World.
