    Have you any travel advice for a group of 8 female 20 year olds travelling around Thailand?

    Thailand is very well set up for tourists and if you keep on the tourist trail you will have no problems. Stay in hostels, they are very cheap and if there are 8 of you, you could get the whole dorm or stay in rooms with 3-4 beds. If you stay in hotels you won't meet anyone, you want to be with people in your age. Hostels are also very well equiped with tour desks, they will organise your bus tickets, trains, someone will come and pick you up, day tours etc. If you've never been to a third world country eat at places where there are other tourists eating. I have only ever been sick once in all the times I have been there. But if you take lots of gastro powders, just mix that in with your bottle of water if you get a dodgy. Its a great place and one of the safest countries. Have fun. over 3 years ago

    Hello,I need to find someone who did experience renting a car with driver through Mongolia.Thank for fast reply

    I never rented a car and i am not certain there are Car rental companies in Mongolia. I was there in 2010, as far as things like taxi's there are none as such. you stand out on the street someone will stop and you negotiate a price. It depends on what you wanted the car for! If it was just to drive around Ulan Bataar ask at your hotel and they will know someone willing to rent a car. If its to self drive in the country side, there are lots of small tour operators who can do packages up for you that come with a driver. as I am not sure what your intentions are its a little hard Hope this helps. over 4 years ago

    Is it safe to travel to el Salvador are the gangs active

    Yes it is safe. I was there is in March and April, the current government have expanded military presence throughout the country. The locals do not go out at night, after about 6.30-7pm there are very few people on the streets in the major towns such as Santa Ana and San Salvador. Most hostels provide very good kitchen facilities, in smaller resort towns such as El Tunco, it is safer but don't walk along the beach at night. Take the usual precautions and everything will be fine. I can highly recommend Casa Verde in Santa Ana, it's one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. An extra note, all men and women in El Salvador wear jeans, so for females keep conservative dress, especially when on local transport to avoid too much attention. I never felt threatened at any time. over 5 years ago
