Hey all,

I am going to Hong Kong at the end of June and have a job in China that starts mid August. Other than that, no plans. I want to have a look around south Asia rather than China as I will be living there for a couple of years anyway.

Any suggestions re places to go, visas, things to look out for would be most appreciated.

The Philippines is always worth a visit :) Lots of beaches to lounge in or mountains to trek. Timing's gonna be a bit tricky, though, as the rains have come in a bit earlier this year. Lemme know if you'd like more information and I'd be happy to help.

I agree with wershwie, the Philippines are always a good bet. The rains have come early do you say wershwie? Blimey, it seems that it does always rain whenever I go to the philippines, but that doesn't really matter, I love it there anyway. i will be there for the whole of September and I am sure it will rain everyday then!!

Yeah, unfortunately the rains have come earlier coz of the La Nina phenomenon. September should be wet, but oddly enough, it might be drier THIS year. Hahaha...

Bwiian! Hit me up when you're around! Let's drink to the rainy season ;)
