Need Help..Planning my first solo travel..Indian
Hi,

I am an 29 yr old Indian,living in India.

Need your suggestions and inputs regarding my travel plan.

Plan: Solo travel S.E.Asia.

Days: 30 days as of now (Starting August 1st Week)

Locations: Cambodia,Philippines,Thailand

Game level : Beginner.

Travel objective: To get out of my mental rut,visit some cool places and bang some chicks.

Budget: 2K-3K US Dollars

Questions:

1.Do you think there will be a cost difference for hotels and stuff,since I am an Indian ??

2.Is it worth it??

3.Cambodia is a must for me (Ankor Wat temples and The killing fields).

4.Unrelated but do you guys know any Indians teaching English in these countries?? Have not got a clear picture regarding it.

That's it for now..

This is what I would do.

Manila - 4 nights
Cebu - 12 nights
Phnom Phen - 1 night
Siem Reap / Angkor Wat - 2 nights
Bangkok - 10 nights

1) Book hotels online (Agoda)
2) Always
3) They usually want white faces for teaching ESL

RE: Need Help..Planning my first solo travel..Indian
Hi Dash,

Thank you for your suggestions.Will take them into consideration.

I would have replied earlier but I was still in two minds about quitting my job.So today,I went to my manager and gave him my 90 day notice.

I am getting anxiety attacks/butterflies about now(from quitting my job).Any tips on how to overcome these??

Also I have searched hotels through Agoda and find them to be a little costly for my taste.Do you have any other budget accommodations recommendations??

Also tips on how to prepare for my trip??like visa,passport,money etc..

On an unrelated note, can you guys recommend me any good post/books/articles on minimalism/minimalistic lifestyle.

I don't know what will happen about in the future, but as they say 'In for a penny, in for a pound'.

Over and Out..

Krish

Do not book things online for thailand you will pay anywhere from double to literally 5 times the price that you would pay in person. What we paid for 3 nights in Phuket through agoada would have worked out at about a months rent had we paid in person.

Indians do have a bad rep for being grippy with money. However there's a good hotel in soi 8 just outside nana bts exit 4 I believe, called 8 inn it's run by Indians who are very friendly. If you stay a few nights you can get a solid discount, they are real chill with bringing back girls too. Also check out Siam inn that's just next door beforehand to see what prices are like before and you will know what range to barter down to. You could get a proper good room for 3 nights for below 800 baht. This is a decent quality room in possibly the best location for a stop through bkk 30sec walk from bts.

Use the 24 hour layover in PP to check out some clubs. I have them in my datasheet.

A bus to SR from PP should not take 2 days. Also, I imagine it will be hard / expensive to get flight to Manila from Siem Reap. You are better off taking a bus to Bangkok, then getting a flight to Manila.

You fly from Manila to Cebu.

As of now this is what you need to plan

Phnom Penh - 1 night / day
bus
Siem Reap - 2 nights (to see Angkor Wat)
bus
Bangkok - 7 nights
fly
Manila - 7 nights
fly
Cebu - 10 nights

Nightlife in Bangkok blows ass from my experience and everything ive read. You either have whack ass local music and sit down places or you have over priced western whore joints. Dont concern yourself with that. If you are smart you will meet a girl online and invite her out for some drinks at a local spot. Then take her back to the hotel.

I am not sure about a Full Moon party. I would skip it as from what I gather it is mostly just drunk Foreigners.

Trying to fit in Indonesia will be tough. But if you want to go there id do

Phnom Penh - 1 night / day
bus
Siem Reap - 2 nights (to see Angkor Wat)
bus
Bangkok - 7 nights
fly
Manila - 5 nights
fly
Cebu - 6 nights
fly
Jakarta - 6 nights
fly
Bali - 2 nights

Full moon party was pretty epic. I thought it would be shit for the same reason dash mentioned I had no interest in trying to fuck white girls while I was in thailand. However there are always thai girls there and they are dtf.

Full moon, half moon, black moon are all good for pulling. If logistics are tight you can pull more than once at these things.

Woa.

Please tell me you are not staying in KL for 13 days?!?!?!

Book a round trip flight from KL to Jakarta to spend those 11-13 days.

If you want to get laid you need to book cheap hotels (agoda) or do 2 week apartment rental (airbnb) (still cheaper even if you are not staying the full 13 nights)
