I'm planning to travel India and SE Asia for 3 months then head of to do some teaching in China from June 07.
Any advice on travel would be most appreciated especially in regards to teaching in China. Has anyone done it and do you have any contacts you can hook me up with?
Does anyone have any similar plans and would like to meet up for some parts of India and SE Asia?
Try having a look at eslcafe and teflchina for teaching in China.
IAM glad that you are visiting my country India. Most welcome.3months is an ideal period to visit most of India.
If you need any assistance or information, please let me know.
Thanks. I am planning to spend 1 month only in India actually and the remaining 2 months exploring Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam before heading off to China.
The plan is to fly into Dehli and work my way through the main cities all the way down south. Can anyone recommend a route?
I'd like to do the main cities like Bangalore, Mumbai, Agra, Chennai, Goa, Kerala.
I am thinking of a similar trip next year as well...probably a bit earlier, but doing some volunteer work for about 6 weeks, April through mid-May, and then traveling through August. I don't know where yet but I guess India, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar would be on my list...
Anyways would love to keep in touch with you as you plan and maybe we can meet up next year!
Yes it would be great to keep in touch and exchange plans/notes. Where will you fly to?
If you wish to visit major cities, then suggest as below:
Delhi-Agra-Mumbai-Goa- Kerala-Bangalore and Chennai in that order.
From Chennai you can take off to Singapore or Bangkok or KL as there are everyday flights.
All the best.
Not sure yet where I will fly to. I am looking at a volunteer program in Kabul that would last until mid-May or so, and then I would probably hop a plane to begin my travels - depending on where I end up going (but like I said, don't have any of this mapped out yet!)
Hi - just to let you know Goa is a state not a city...there are many many places in Goa that you can visit. Eg. Anjuna Market, Baga Beach, Asvem beach, Goa old town, Mapsua, Panjim...and even more towns further south...to backpackers paradise. Its very cheap and safe and a superb place to get some beach time.
Thanks for info. Am still reading up on India and have decided to fly into Dehli and work my around from there.
Anybody planning to be in Dehli come June time next year?
Please keep posting your advice....and thanks to all who have pm'd or left messages on this thread.
