I'm 25, male and I'm planning my first travelling trip for 6 months. The problem is I'm having great difficulty deciding where to go!

I'm set on going to Australia (probably Cairns) and also Thailand but not sure where else. I was thinking of Hawaii maybe?

Can anyone suggest some cool places? I want to meet others (I'm going alone), see the sun and party.....but also keep it cheap and see culture/wildlife/ancient ruins etc......

Thanks.

Well, you're starting location would be helpfull to know.

SE Asia is well worth spending time in, and for gods sake do more than just Thailand, yeah its an awesome country, but there is heaps more to see! - Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam are musts, and very kind on the budget!

Well, you could go overland to Singapore, either via Russia and China or via Turkey and India.

Ok, currently there are some security issues with Iran and Pakistan, not sure whether you want to wait that out, but otherwise it a great trip.

Maybe you could fly to India from the UK and then take Air Asia to Bangkok, go from Bangkok overland to Singapore. I'm no expert on that part of the world, but there should be a way to get to Bali overland from Singapore. From Bali you can grab cheap flights to Australia. If this doesn't work out it shouldn't be a big deal to get flights from Singapore to Oz.

Ever thought of Africa?? I'm a regular traveller there - and have never been to Asia. Maybe one day, but it's not near the top of my list. I like it because it doesn't have the touristy thing that a lot of Asia seems to have. Maybe I'm wrong, but it just appears to be so much more as it's always been, rather than backpackers everywhere and flashy hotels on every corner.

Go to Boracay Philippines instead of Thailand. You will never forget the experience, its like a hawaii meet the carribean setting...

You come to visit Thailand, why don't you add more Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos...These countries in south east area are very exciting. spending about 1 month to cover all these sites.
Have a good trip!
