22 yr. old - looking to see the world before I settle down. I am extremely open-minded, easygoing, and love to meet new people!
IrishRover Hi there, thanks yeah the plans are coming along well, Ive decided to buy a bicycle when I land in Bangkok (july) and cycle to Ko Samui, then across to Phuket, and down into Malaysia and cycle down the east coast there to Singapore. Then I want to go to the other part of Malaysia (Borneo) and travel up Sabah. from there then I'll go to Veitnam, Cambodia and Laos but the movement there will be decided closer to the time. Sounds hectic right? Well its not really Im going to take my time and travel at a slow pace with many stops in small towns and villages and plenty of days breaks or 2-3 day breaks doing some fun stuff like National parks, definte trip to the rainforest in Borneo, climbing mountains etc and also some chilling out if I come across worthy place (deserted beaches and the like lol). What about you? have you decided to do it?? :)
IrishRover Hey Cassie glad you like it and yeah its going to have all that! Feel free to join in, it is more fun travelling with someone and from reading up it splits the cost of accomodation.
Visas are the really the main constriction so if you want to go to certain destinations here's and idea of where ill be
July 13 - Thailand (30 days free)
-Malaysia (90 days free) 1 month peninsular- 2months Borneo(this will be where Im planning to volunteer, proper rainforest trek and climb a mountain)
Nov - Vietnam (30 days £30)
Dec - Cambodia (30 days £25)
Jan 14 - Laos (30 days £30) then while here get a tourist visa for anothe 6 days in Thailand £40. (exploring northern Thailand)
Repeat as much as possible lol.
I have a map below for the first month in Thailand, its just to get an idea of how quick il be moving and a few places to chill out (ive ommitted phuket as it may be two much hassle but ive left a few days less than the 30 so it may come back in) Most of the days biking are only about 40-60 km so should be no more than 3 hrs and bikes can always be put on buses or trains if behind or tired just adds to the cost.
In the religious city of Mecca, when are only Muslims permitted to visit?
