Hey. I am traveling to Asia solo in February 2013.
I am a yoga instructor so I would love to learn more about Buddhism, the culture, cooking, sunset beaches, etc.
Anyone traveling in Asia at this time?
Have advice on monasteries to stay at?

I would love any advice, any company, for this trip.
Much love

but you really need prepare all the packages you need, better learn some chinese. good luck and cheers

If you can get a free VISA EXEMPTION depends on what passport you enter with, how long you will stay and if you have a round trip plane ticket or proof of onward travel.

Bangkok Post and The Nation newspapers have day to day information on the protests.

You can Google up Richard Barrow and follow his postings on the protests. Also get daily bulletins from the Thai Visa Expat Forum. You can check with your embassy, your state department (or foreign office) for latest warnings.
