Hi hi,

I am wanting to leave in a few weeks for a long and adventurous travel, starting in India or Thailand (or maybe another interesting country in that noughbourhood). Any people been to those places ? Which ones do you recommend most ? First time I go backpacking on my own, that far away. If people have the same plans and like to meet or start together ... you may always leave a message

Greetings, Wim

If you look for adventurous and long - go to India!

The problem is that some people say the same thing about Thailand and Vietnam :) . Maybe I should just pick one with my eyes closed.

Vietnam is pretty damn nice, but hurry, it's changing day by day!

Maybe different question: what makes these countries worth visiting ?

From the nearly 60 countries I have been to, to me India proved to offer the most unique experience. I am not saying I prefer India to any other country, but it certainly gives you a great amount of impulses. It's not an easy place to travel as compared to Thailand, but it's very vibrant and "adventurous". Also, it's very diverse: there are deserts, high altitude mountains, rain forests, different religions, culturally very rich cities.

I can always meet a lot of people on the road - both India or Thailand have their backpacker centers - make friendships and travel together or split up when you want to wander alone.
