I am starting to plan a couple of weeks holiday from Mumbai to somewhere is Thailand. I am wondering what are the best methods and where are some places to go?
Well, a long time ago I took the trains north up through Rajasthan, across to Varanasi then by bus north again into Nepal. After some weeks I then flew across to Thailand, but these days I'd ** highly ** recommend a trip around Burma / Myanmar on the way past - wonderful country and people. almost 8 years ago
Myanmar is notoriously difficult for Visa's. Getting one to cross the country is the most diifficult according to my research last year. Although all of this changes day by day, which also means even if you do get a visa you might still have problems when you get to the border. If you can find a way north you may be able to pick up the tran-siberian railway and then go via China and down. almost 8 years ago
