    How do I start moving?

    Hello! Firstly, where do you want to go first? Pick a country or at least a continent and we can maybe point you in the right direction as to your visa questions. Visa conditions different from country to country, and each country has different conditions of entry and limitation on types of visas for citizens of different countries. So, it is hard to answer your question at this point in time. One of the most popular ways to travel and work is to teach English. Your seem to write it fluently, why not try getting a certification in your country such as a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), make sure it is recognised in the countries you wish to travel. Another that is common for young females is to be a nanny or au pair. Many families around the world love the multicultural aspect of hiring an international nanny. I have never done this myself but my sister and other friends have done this with great stories to tell. My sister in particular got a free air ticket to be a nanny in Belgium for 6 months, then went on to nanny for a French family in London who paid for her to learn French, so that she could be bilingual with their children. Currently, she is taking a break and traveling around Europe. The pay is not amazing, but you get board and food and get to explore a wonderful new city! :) The families often will assist with visa issues. Again, you will need to check with your countries' and their countries' rules and conditions to be sure. Another idea is to be a volunteer, many NGOs around the world need people who can spare their time and effort in exchange for basic board and food. This will be my next adventure. :) I hope I helped a little. Good luck! :) about 7 years ago

    Cambodia with teenagers for 3 weeks

    Once you arrive, there will be no shortage of people offering you their services. I found it has been cheaper and more reliable to organise day-to-day activities upon arrival. Pre-organised tours are often overpriced and won't allow you the flexibility you need with teenagers. In Siem Reap for example, you can just hire a bike for 3 days and explore Angkor Wat on your own. Maps are plentiful everywhere, or your guide book will provide the factoids and maps you'd get from the average, run-of-the-mill guide. I have done both self-guided and guided, and my solo bike trip was more enjoyable and I saw more than most tours would allow. In Shihanoukville, all you need is a beach house. :) I say, go and try to organise it yourself and if you don't like it, it will not be difficult to then get a tour, guide or day trip organised. Tourism is their major drawcard, so it will be easy whichever way you decide. It's a beautiful place, you'll love it. Safe travels! :) about 7 years ago

    Will I be able to use credit cards in most places in china?

    China runs on cash. You will likely be able to use it in major cities in big establishments like 5 star hotels and department stores but most eateries, restaurants and shops are cash only. about 7 years ago

    Where can I find a cheap and clean hotel in Beijing that's nearby the tourist spots?

    I stayed at the Red Lantern House (http://www.redlanternhouse.com/home.htm). 70RMB in a 4 bed dorm, shared bathroom which was clean and equipped. Beautiful courtyard, great coffee, English-speaking staff, fantastic location between two metro stations (5 mins walk), awesome lane way location with lots of eateries. about 7 years ago

    Long term places to stay in SE Asia with ocean swimming?

    To add to the list: Koh Lanta, island off the coast of Krabi. I spent 3 weeks there in a beautiful eco lodge on a small hill opposite the beach, my room overlooked the beach and the host told me that many a writer has come to stay with her. Google "Baan Rao Koh Lanta". The family are wonderful people who between them speak, Swedish, English, French and Thai. She is reasonably priced and has a full kitchen, down the road, 2 minutes walk there is a market there with fresh produce and street food to-die-for. I think you will enjoy it! :) about 7 years ago
