Bucketlist




How to get around

Asia  might be a huge continent, but it’s super easy to get around. The easiest and cheapest way to travel around Asia is by bus. Buses will take you anywhere you want to go, no matter how far.

As usual, flying is the quickest but most expensive way, but they have a couple budget airlines (Scoot, Jetstar, AirAsia) that can give you a good deal. If you book early, you can save on fares, as most of the airlines offer deeply discounted fare sales all the time. Train is not an option unless you are in Thailand. The majority of the countries don’t have extensive train lines.

Money Saving Tips

-Eat street food: Street food is the best way to really taste the countries’ flavors, and it is also the cheapest.  Some of the freshest and cheapest food can be found on the streets. Go for the place where the locals are!

-Hostels or Camping: The difference in pricing between a hotel and a hostel is huge, and you can find plenty of cute and cozy hostels. There is also a new trendy camping service called Campspace, which allows you to pitch a tent in someone’s backyard for free or a nominal fee.

-Take the bus: Specially overnight buses. Bus is the cheapest way to get around, and overnight tickets tend to be even cheaper. 
-Avoid group tours: If you are not in a rush and have enough time to enjoy the country, try to organize the tour yourself. Agencies charge a lot of unnecessary fees for transportation and guides.

-Plan in advance: Planning with time could save you hundreds or even thousand when it comes to flights, trains and accommodations. 

What to expect in Asia

LANGUAGE: There is a wide variety of languages spoken throughout Asia, the most spoken one is Chinese due to China’s population, but you don’t have to worry, english is widely spoken all over asia, being the official language of some countries like Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines and Singapore.

ELECTRICITY: A majority of countries in the world use a 220/240-volt electrical infrastructure, twice the voltage coming from outlets in the United States. With the exceptions of Japan and Taiwan, every country in Asia uses a 230-240V system. You will need a voltage convertor and a plug adapter to connect your devices. Many hotels are installing universal sockets so that guests from all countries can connect to power. but just because your plug fits into the outlet, you cannot assume the voltage is safe for your device.

CURRENCY: Asia uses a variety of country-specific currencies. You can exchange the currency on the exchange houses at the airports or directly withdrawing from the ATM (you should have contacted your bank before hand) 

SAFETY: The large majority of Asian countries are safe, and travelers return home without encountering any serious issues, but just like anywhere else you need to be alert and use your common sense, mostly in the main cities and crowded places. They are a few countries in war-ridden ridden regions that I would avoid for now such as Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen and some parts of Thailand.

CLIMATE: Asia comprises countries that are both above and below the Equator line, meaning they seasons are inverted. The best time to visit depends on which country you are planning to visit. Some of them have a tropical weather the majority of the year, while others are extremely season. Plan your trip and check the weather after you have chosen your destination!

PASSPORT: Remember that many countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months (some just three months) after your arrival date before they’ll grant entry to their country. Some of them also require a VISA to enter the country depending on your nationality. Plan in advance and make sure you have everything in order.
