Where to go for two months?
Long story short - We've traveled a lot as a family including 1 year rtw with the kids 9 years ago. Now #1 son has just graduated from university. He and three friends were planing on travelling this summer before jobs & responsibilities start
They had planned on going to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Thailand is out, so the kids are back to wondering where to go again.
Here's your part - make some suggestions! 2 of the 4 kids are saying that maybe they should not travel... but we're trying to push them out the door because there will never be a better time to travel for them than right now.
- June/ July/ August travel only. Consider the weather
- they are definitely on a budget. Europe is probably out
- they will probably not want to/ need to work while travelling.
- they only wanted Thailand so they could return to Railay Beach for climbing/ beach and snorkeling. Any other similar areas to Krabi?
Any suggestions on where they should go? I was going to suggest they fly to Hong Kong and use that as a base to explore China and then down to Vietnam.
The people,the culture,the food the Animals in the National Parks was great and superb.
I travelled with my wife,covering both two neighbouring countries in East Africa.
Its very cheap to do holiday in Africa esp East Africa.We had local Tour Operator from Kenya who booked all our hotel/lodges in advance.After confirmation we paid a deposit of 20% to hold the accomodations.Here is there web www.lipiadventure-ke.com
All the best of luck
All of those places sound great but, if it was me, I'll say South America! It's a totally different world, full of energy, sun, colours and new things and experiences to learn every day, and despites what some people think is safe to go!! So many different places and cultures within each country, adventure, beaches, jungle, amazing cities, sun, snow, exotic fruits and sites.
Why don't you take a look at this video from Colombia? It will give you more or less a hint of what Latin America is.

No doubt the images on the TV are horrific but you will only come across anything like this if you are right in the middle of it. Most of my Bangkok friends are similarly unaware of the violence in the city centre they are mostly upset that the 7-11 is closed due to curfew.
The upside of the unrest is that tourism plummets and this often leads to reduced prices and better service.
I wouldn't worry too much about going to anywhere like Krabi? If you are really worried then just fly into Phuket to make sure.
Having said all that. There are many other great places in the world to travel. Personally I love Nepal & South America.
The main hops are Vancouver - Hongkong - Phuket - KL- Malaysian Borneo - Bangkok - Ho Chi Min City - Hong Kong - Vancouver. I'm thrilled they're going.
Fly in to kaohsiung, first go to kending then up the east coast, Beautiful, then finish in Taipei, fly to HK! before august though, that's typhoon season in SE Asia.
But Seriously TAIWAN!
The number one vacation spot for most people in the world, France attracts over 75 million tourists every year. And what's not to love about France? Travel agents can find all sorts of discount packages on hotels, flights, car rentals and everything you need for your trip. Most popular places in France to visit would be the Eiffel Tower, the Riviera and wineries.
South America (ski areas open)
Year-round, the weather's just about perfect in Hawaii
Somewhere around the world, every month of the year, a cruise ship is sailing some place wonderful.

If you've always dreamed of going on safari in Africa, summertime in the northern hemisphere is winter in that part of the world - and the weather is usually comfortable.

Mount Kinabalu remains one of my favorite mountain hikes of all time.
