Vietnam for my parents - maybe da bang?

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 13:10:23 GMT

Hi all, My parents are going to Vietnam for the first time (and it will be their first time outside Europe). I've been there but only backpacking and want to try and help them find a place that is friendly to tourists, not off the beaten track, and that has a nice quiet beach area which is easy for first time westerners. My folks are in their 60s so they are not looking for adventure or stress - just somewhere relaxing ... [Posted by Walkaways5813 - Apr 23, 05:10]

Thailand weather June/July/August/September

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 13:04:21 GMT

I am looking to start travelling in June next year as that's when my contract finishes at work. However the weather in Thailand in June doesn't look great and seems to get worse up until October. I would rather go sooner rather than later. Has anyone been travelling in Thailand during these months and can let me know what the weather is like? Is it worth waiting until the winter months? Or is there anywhere else in Asia that has better weather ... [Posted by Shannonoxox - Apr 20, 05:04]

Freelance guide/tour to Mongolia Gobi desert

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 23:48:17 GMT

Hello, I have 10 days to spend in Mongolia this upcoming Easter and I am interested in a trip in the desert. It is not hard to browse the net for Gobi desert tours, but I am a person who do not like if it is too touristy and carefully tailored for tourist needs, but rather have it more gritty and "real" experience even if its a bit uncomfortable and challenging. I would therefore be interested in locating something more of a ... [Posted by banders - Mar 18, 15:48]

Dushanbe Grand Mosque

Hey. Does anybody know if the Grand Mosque in Dushanbe has been completed / is open yet? I read one report that it was completed in 2016 and I've seen plenty of artists impressions - which look spectacular - but weirdly, there is not a single Google image of the mosque, nothing on Trip Advisor and there are no articles at all on the internet about it at all! It's supposedly the biggest mosque in Central Asia, yet there ... [Posted by Gecko - Mar 18, 12:37]
