    Best backpacking route through India, Burma, Nepal, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand?

    Hi Bonita, Wow. Big adventure. (wish it was me!) I'd suggest that you make a plan to start in the place you MOST want to see and then a rough idea of what would come next. But be prepared to let the journey take shape as it happens. 6 months isn't actually very long to go to all those countries you list if you want to travel slowly/locally. I spent 6 weeks in Vietnam alone and constantly met people coming out of Laos saying it was their favourite place. It took me another 4 years before I could get back to Laos because I hadn't anticipated wanting to change direction. Also, I think you'd find India/Nepal fit together and Burma/Thai/Laos/Vietnam/Cambodia fit together and travel within those areas easy. To link SE Asia to India would involve a flight. Not a problem, nor even that expensive, but almost a different trip. there's a few other people who've asked similar questions about travel routes across Asia. Check out these questions that have some great answers/tips: http://bit.ly/T4zW4g, http://bit.ly/Wk0wJY, http://bit.ly/VMhgTR, http://bit.ly/ZdOH9R. Have fun planning! almost 5 years ago

    Beaches in new Zealand

    I spent a night at Waihi beach in our campervan in the middle of winter. We stopped there because it was halfway to Coromandel so I didn't research it or have any expectations. It turned out to be one of the most memorable and stunning places on our trip. almost 5 years ago

    We are planning a stay in central Sydney. Can anyone recommend a comfortable hotel for around AU $120 per night for a double with ensuite?

    Hi Mike, Sydney doesn't have a lot of central hotels at that price point. Most of the larger 4/5 star ones are more like $200++. However, the YHA in the Rocks has double rooms with private bathrooms for about $140/night. Fantastic location and one of the best rooftop views around! http://www3.yha.com.au/hostels/nsw/sydney-surrounds/sydney-harbour/ almost 5 years ago

    Where can I get a good dim sim in Sydney?

    do you mean 'Dim Sum"? In Sydney, this is generally called 'Yum Cha' - loads of restaurants in China Town if you want to wander around and find some you like. Some of my faves are Marigold (top floor, corner of George and Hay Streets) and Zilver (477 Pitt St, level 1). almost 6 years ago

    Can anybody recommend a good place to camp for me and two kids (7and 4) not to far from Sydney (2hr max) site needs to have toilets

    I just spent the weekend at Bundeena in the Bonnie Vale campground. It's part of the national park, hot showers + loos, swimming, beach and boat ramp... But no fires. Great for the kids and easy access to the village to restock supplies. It feels quite urban for a campground, but hey, that's what you get for less than 60 mins from home! Great place for 'easy' camping about 5 years ago
