Hey

My name is David im 25 and plan on traveling around the world. I've always wanted to see the world with my mates but something always comes up and stops us so I've decided to do it alone. I plan to start in Aug 11 in Thailand and make my way from there, i don't have any particular plans im just going to play it by ear. There is a few places i would like to go like kuala lumpur, vietnam, laos, cambodia, australia, new zealand, etc.

I plan on working in some places. Is it hard to get jobs and to get working visas??

I would appreciate any tips or advice on best places to visit for someone up for a laugh and wants an adventure that will never be forgotten

cheers
David

Hey Dave,

This is Qian from Malaysia. I suggest you to go to Penang (Peninsular Malaysia) for amazing beach & food and then to Sipadan (Sabah) which's been voted off as one of the best diving spots in the world.

KL is good for shopping and famous for its night life...oh also our infamous KLCC Petronas Twin Tours. Otherwise, you might consider skipping KL.

Happy planning all!

Cheeers.
