    How safe is RIshikesh, India for a single older woman?

    Ah! The yoga capital of the world! Sounds like a great trip. As a solo woman traveller, you just need to be aware of the different dangers there. Avoid walking alone of a night time and only travel in a public bus with a group. Otherwise travel in private transport arranged by the hotel and ensure someone always knows when you’re going. The roads are busy with motorbikes and rickshaws and bag snatching is common . When in a rickshaw, keep your bags threaded through your arms which makes you less of a target. Motorbike riders drive up beside rickshaws and assess the accessibility of bags, if they’re really desperate they’re going to get it anyway, but if they see it as a struggle, they will leave you alone. The footpaths are ok, but the curbs can be quite deep so be mindful when stepping out onto the road or you might see yourself coming home with a sprained ankle! If you’re going during monsoon, this can also bring about some other “issues” that will add to your adventure. Such as slippery tiles etc. Take some good “reef shoes” that are not too slippery in the wet, but still keep your feet covered. Monkeys…… Rabies vaccine is definitely a good idea! over 5 years ago

    What do I need to do for a Visa in Cambodia?

    Hi Tasia, A 30 day tourist VISA is 20USD and can be paid in cash on arrival in Phnom Penh airport. You will also need two passport photos. I don't believe they take credit card. Having just returned, I can highly recommend a trip top Battambang, eat in Jaan Bai and see the Phare Circus. Lisa almost 6 years ago

    What is some good accommodation in Seminyak when travelling with children?

    Hi Kate Some of the larger hotels have private villas suitable for families. You get the convenience, space and privacy in the villa and access to everything the hotel has to offer (kids clubs, kid friendly restaurants etc). W Hotel in Seminyak is ideal. almost 6 years ago

    do i need a tourist visa im travelling to thialand,vietnman and camboia, and how do i get them. thankyou, if anyone can tell me.

    You can get a tourist visa on arrival in Thailand and Cambodia (remember to take a passport photo with you for Cambodia) - and the cost is about USD25 from memory. For Vietnam, it really is hit and miss to get one on arrival. Best to apply before you arrive to be sure. I once tried to cross the Cambodian border to Vietnam and they would allow entry. almost 6 years ago
