PETITION TO SAVE VT - Please, if you have found VT helpful, sign

Found this petition that is going around on line asking for 96 more signatures. I've signed it and hope any other member that is also on fb will sign it and share it on fb as well. When signed, it will be forwarded to Kaufer:

Petition here: 

In short it reads: For nearly 18 years VirtualTourist.com has served as our home for sharing our travel adventures and advice, and for connecting with other travelers. TripAdvisor, which owns the website, has said it will close the doors on VT in February and delete millions of tips, reviews, photos and videos from the site. Many of us have used VT as a way to preserve our experiences to share with our friends, our children, our grandchildren and other travelers. We believe there is a way for Trip Advisor to keep our content. Simply keep the member pages, which we know are not indexed by google, turn off the travel guides and forums, and freeze new postings and new memberships but please let us keep and preserve our memories…many of which have been well over a decade in the making! We would even be open to paying a small fee to have our pages saved as part of this library! Steve Kaufer, we implore you to please reconsider deleting decades of memories from existence and keeping our pages intact!! Thank you for your consideration! This petition will be delivered to: Tripadvisor Steve Kaufer

Cheap Quiet Meditation Retreat Place ?

Hi, I would like to do a personal meditation retreat somewhere inexpensive.
Would prefer not to go to anything organised like ashram as I have my own practice.
Perhaps somebody knows of a particular guest house somewhere which is reasonably clean and not expensive.
Doesn't need to be near any parties, people, crowds or bars, or anywhere popular.
Somewhere rural or coastal for some nice walking or forests without tigers would be great.
Countries with reasonable 3 month visas would be good and not in freezing mountains.
Budget as cheap as possible, but a clean single room.
Up to £7 / $8.5 a day including food etc...
If anyone has stumbled upon a place I would be grateful to know it.
Thanks

Hi,

My boyfriend and I are looking to travel to Southeast Asia for 1 month in the middle of the year. I'm just really not sure where to start and what's best to put on and leave off.

Any suggestions regarding where to go/how long to spend there and whatnot would be greatly appreciated. As we have both never traveled to Asia we're just not sure what is and isn't achievable in the month and place best to visit.

Thank you in advance!!

Nepal

China

Burma
(?)
Laos
(overland to north Vietnam)
Vietnam
(overland from south Vietnam)
Cambodia
( overland to north Thailand)
Thailand
( flight from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur)
Malaysia
(Flight)
Indonesia

Philippines

One of the biggest issues I have with the above is the fact that I have no idea how to get to Burma from China and to Laos from Burma.
Should I swap those 3 countries around or could you recommend a way to get there?

Thank you

Which way to travel around Southeast Asia?  (13 Answers)

Hi everyone! Me and my boyfriend and going traveling in just under 2 years and we can t seem to work out the best route to do so.

We are definitely starting in India and finishing in Australia and then New Zealand. The rest of the countries we would like to visit are Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, Bangladesh, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Taiwan.

So if someone could advise me as to which route would be the best / the cheapest (we aren t backpacking per se but we are on a budget) and which places would you advise not to go to, as I m aware there is parts of Burma, Bangladesh, India and Thailand that are currently a bit dangerous.

Thanks a lot!

From Jammu Station to Srinagar - need advice  (1 Answer)

I plan to visit Srinagar (Kashmir University) during the month of October by train (from Kolkata). I have some questions:

a) What would be the best course of action for me after landing at Jammu station? Where do I spend the night (for cheap)?

b) Can I get shared car from Jammu to Srinagar for 600 INR? Do I need to book the shared car a day in advance?

c) How long does the journey to Srinagar from Jammu station take?

d) I am Indian so do I need to take my Indian passport there?

e) What are average hotel rates near Jammu station and also in Srinagar (a budget hotel of 500-600 INR per day would be nice, I don't need anything else except a bed to sleep on and a toilet which can be shared as well)?

f) I plan to stay there for a month (beginning of October to middle of November) . Is it too cold there in October-November? I have a Vodafone Indian prepaid sim, do I need to get a new sim from there?

g) Also, do you know of any good and cheap hotels in and around Kashmir University?

Help, where to go in November?  (5 Answers)

Hi,

I need some help, I´m so irresolute about my trip to South East Asia in mid November. I have a return ticket to Hong Kong and I will stay away for two weeks. My initial itinerary is to go to HK, stay there for 3-4 days, then go somewhere else in South East Asia for 1 week and then back to HK again for another 3-4 days.

Now to my big question... Where to go? I´ve been thinking alot. The ideal thing would be to go to another big city for a couple of days and then take a short trip to a nice beach for 3-4 days. I like chilling on the beach but I´m to restless so 3-4 days is enough. But I will not say no to sunny weather and some beaches with cristal clear water.

My first option was Okinawa. I love Japan and have been there a couple of times, and I would love to go to Okinawa. BUT, the wheater... I´m not sure about the weather and I don´t want to be stucked on the islands with bad weather. I was in northern Taiwan november last year and it was raining alot, and Okinawa is not that far away.

My next option was El Nido, but I think the journey is a little bit complex and take to long time.

Then I was thinking of Singapore and Bintan Island. That would be the perfect mix and Bintan is only an hour away. But after some research I discovered that it will probably be very wet. I think I can stand some rain in Singapore but not on Bintan.

SO now I´m a little bit confused and not sure where to go.
Any advise? Kuala Lumpur and some island, maybe Langkawi? Or Bangkok and some beach resort close? Any other places in The Philippines.

I don´t want to spend 6-8 hours on a bus, so if it is quite easy accessible.

Or shall I skip the warm weather and go to South Korea? And then visit Jeju for some hiking? I´ve never been to Korea but in an ideal world I would like to go there in the spring. Is it to cold in November?

Hopefully I can get help from the experts on this forum. :-)
If you have any questions, don´t hasitate to ask.
