I am leaving for a trip in around 10 months, maybe early January if cheaper.
London to Australia (land Brisbane - surface - leave Sydney - or visa versa) [3weeks]
Australia to New Zealand (land Christchurch -surface - Auckland - or visa versa) [3weeks]
New Zealand to *Phillippines* [1month] *or somewhere similar?)
- Phillippines to Singapore (Singapore - surface - Bangkok) [2weeks]
Bangkok (Bangkok - surface - **Vietnam, Cambodia, Lau, Saigon - suface - Bangkok) [5months]
Bangkok to Beijing (Beijing - surface - Hong Kong) [1month]
Hong Kong to Delhi (Delhi - surface - Tibet) [1month]
and then home.
- *I was hoping to use Bangkok as a hub to travel much of asia without flying.
Im hoping to have around 14k total budget for EVERYTHING. Ive e-mailed some RTW vendors for some quotes today. I need to go to Australia first because I am meeting someone out there to start travelling with. I also would like to do as much on land as possible. So to sum it up. I have 3 questions about my Australia - Asia - India trip.
Question 1: Are there any land-travelling oppurtunities Im missing that can get me across vast parts of Asia without flying?
Question 2: Would it be best to get a RTW deal of flights or try and travel across land spending as I go considering probable extra costs and potential visa restrictions without an outgoing ticket?
Question 3: Any advice you can give me!! Any places to add or a better route to go or a bad season for a certain place would be most appreciated.
I look forward to any recieving any energy you are willing to expel for my benefits
