Default New member - trying to decide Los Angeles to Asia OR South America

Hi all:

Planning trip in short order as I have had some time come up. Wanted to take advantage of peak season. Any ideas?

I was thinking of either South America going to Peru, Brazil, Argentina etc


Asia such as Thailand, Vietnam.

I would want to do about 3 weeks. I could do planes and trains and want to use hostels or couch surfing.

I AM LOOKING FOR ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS - Do I need visas? Airfare ideas?

Your help would mean a lot.

I would suggest Vietnam/Thailand

I did 3 weeks there last year and it was brilliant, Vietnam especially has alot to offer and to see, stunning country and great people.
thailand is ok, it was better a few years ago when I was first there but it still has its charm, just leave bangkok after a couple of days

You will need an entry visa for vietnam and they cost about 60 usdollars.

Just to let you know - this is a South East Asia travel forum so you are unlikely to get as much information about South America as you are Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia

I'm also leaning towards South America but I guess it depends on what kind of experiences you wanna have.

I would lean towards South American especially towards Argentina. The country is amazing it has a lot of potential, and if you like nature and discoveries it is the perfect place.

Why Argentina:
Salta & Jujuy - incredible views, salt mines, amazing colored landscape
Iguazu falls amazing views, awesome waterfall, nature etc.
Cordoba historic heritages and a great combination of South American culture
El Calafate visit the glacier and the awesome lakes around it
Ushuaia - a great variety of wildlife (seals penguin colonies etc)
