Hey, have just decided to go RTW from october this year for 3 months and was hoping for some general advice. Am a fairly seasoned traveller, though i have stuck to europe thus far. This time im planning on visiting:

Beijing,
Hong kong
Hanoi
Bangkok
Singapore
Sydney
most of the east coast of Aus from melbourne to Cairns, inc Ayres rock
Christchurch
Auckland and many places in between
Figi
LA
New York.

I am from the UK and wont be in any 1 place longer than 30 days. Can anyone give me advice on visa info, vaccinations i may need and any stories about train or bus travel through S.E Asia. Thinking of taking a train from hanoi yo bangkok and then down to singapore.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated and any useful websites would be great.

thanks

nicola

You'll need to get a visa for China before you arrive

Cut Singapore out of your list. Singapore is like any other city in the world. I would suggest that u take airasia (http://airasia.com) from BKK-KUL (cost will be cheaper than taking a train from BKK - SIN) and then from KUL (kuala Lumpur) take airasia and travel to Kota Kinabalu or Kuching in Borneo. It will be definately be cheaper than staying in Singapore.

Cheers
