Hi
I've just become single & feeling very very sad - but enough about that already, onward & upward! ... I need some me time somewhere & need to go in two weeks time for three weeks so I don't miss out on college. Bit of a spur of the moment; but aren't they usually the best adventures?

I'm a 45 year old female & will be travelling alone.

I love Asia, have been to Thailand four times & is my favourite place, I've also been Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong & Indonesia - I'd prefer to try somewhere new this time. My friend just came back from India & reckons it would be too hot there now for me. I've never been to South America, don't know what it's like there for single female travellers.

I'm contemplating Vietnam, Cambodia or Burma but open to world wide suggestions.

I'd like to have a few days in a backpacker type of place something like Khao San Road to get my 'traveller' head back on, it's been a while, I don't fancy anywhere where I'm going to feel very alone, & definitely don't want anywhere package holiday tourist ... I love culture, architecture & spiritual places. I'd like some time on beaches & I like moving from one place to another. I don't want anywhere really hot as I'm suffering badly from Anaemia at the moment & easily become out of breath - so can't do hilly places either!

Can anyone help with some suggestions please? xxx

Hi ! I'm Claudia from Vietnam. I just passed my hard time to being out of the relationship and truly hard to believe that but everything will be fine, as you thinking about travelling I guest that is good idea for you now ,you will see plenty of beautiful life outside ,see how happy people making their life and how much they have to try day by day to be happy.So you will have more reason to move on with your life.As my experience of doing guide tour and realizing package tour for the tourist I can suggest you some place that I think can fit with your requirement.
I think if you go to South east Asia the route can be :Thailand -Cambodia -Vietnam -Laos.

You love Thailand and you been their before I know that you had been in a lot of place so I have no suggestion for that .
You can take the bus to go Cambodia after visit Thai. http://coconutsbangkok.com/news/bus-service-now-available-directly-from-bangkok-to-cambodia/
In Cambodia can visit :Siem Reap
Preah Vihear is a Khmer temple situated atop a 525 meter (1,722 ft) cliff in the Dângrêk Mountains, on the border between Cambodia and Thailand
Sihanoukville, also known as Kampong Som, is a port city and beach resort on the Gulf of Thailand
Silver Pagoda :Located within the Royal Palace compound in Phnom Penh, the Silver Pagoda houses many national treasures such as gold and jeweled Buddha statues
Angkor watt The greatest attraction in Cambodia and one of the most spectacular ancient sites on earth, Angkor is a vast temple complex featuring the remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century A.
after that you can take the bus go to Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam.Take city tour around HCM
And visit : Cuchi tunnel (vestigal of Vietnam war)
then visit Mekong delta -floating market
If you want to join the beach can go to Nha trang, Phan Thiet , Mui Ne but now a days there are so much Russian come there so is not quiet probably .
After all can take train go to Danang , visit Hoian -old port commercial of Japanese , Chinese ,Portuguese .You can walking around visit the old house , Japanese bridge and shopping
Take the bus from Danang or flight go to Hue : check the land of Imperial prohibition of ancient kings in Vietnam.
then take train go to Hanoi or fight : visit Mausoleum of Ho chi Minh , Temple of Literature , Museum
Then you can take night train go to Sapa -visit the land of terraces , rice fields , the house of many ethnic minority Vietnam , stay in Homestay and join diner with the family.
Back to Hanoi by train go Straight to Halong Bay -the WORLD OF HERITAGE SITE
overnight on board to join with a lot of tourist around the world .Then the next day back to Hanoi take the bus go to Laos if still have time .
If you need more information can contact with me.Hope you will be fine soon,
