Dogs in China

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 11:13:29 GMT

Hello, I am considering going travelling to China in December/January. I am not 100% comfortable around dogs and I would be grateful for any experience on whether it is frequent to encounter dogs in China: (1) I've read that there may be stray dogs in cities as well as rural places; and (2) I've read that in cities people do not keep their dogs on leashes. I'd be grateful if anyone could share their experience. In particular, I would like to go to Beijing, Shanghai, ... [Posted by atraveller56 - Oct 24, 03:13]

Vietnam Visa On Arrival

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 20:08:20 GMT

Hello fellow travellers, Background: I have been wondering if anyone here has faced the issue I am currently having with obtaining a Vietnamese tourist visa(one month multiple entry). The problem is that my country (Zambia) has no ties with the socialist government of Vietnam. You guessed it, we have no Vietnamese embassy. Getting a visa typical must be done via a foreign country with a Viet mission. I spoke with the embassy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania but they couldn't help without ...

Chilled Place to do 3 month retreat : cheap too !

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 16:04:33 GMT

Hi All I am looking to do a 3 month retreat somewhere quite cheap perhaps in Asia and I wondered if anyone knows of a place ? As I have my own practice and routine I would not like to be in an organised centre or ashram. I can spend about £7/ $8.50 day including food and would like my own room rather than a dorm. But it does not have to be anywhere famous or popular or full of tourists. Just a ... [Posted by rideforever - Oct 17, 08:04]

Experience With Intertrips Tour Company

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 14:47:18 GMT

The tour company Intertrips has some insane cheap tours at the moment to SE Asia that include air, hotel, transfers and a tour or two. Not much on the web about them. Any first hand knowledge? They are apparently the subsidiary of a much larger Chinese company. We usually go independent but the deals are pretty good and we can ditch the tours. So any feedback would be appreciated. Thank You ... [Posted by rhbphoto - Oct 17, 06:47]

Hi guys, I've booked a flight to Bangkok mid Jan 2017 to start a 3 month long trip to SE Asia visiting Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. It's my first time backpacking and I am travelling alone.

Hey I'm off to south east Asia fairly soon, and am intending to go to Vietnam at some point. As a British passport holder, the longest I can be there for is 15 days without a visa. I would ideally like to be there for at least a few weeks. I've been looking online for visa advice and also contacted STA who redirected me to the FCO website - I am also conscious of the scam websites so not sure ... [Posted by paigeok - Sep 29, 04:48]
