  • Sri Lanka is so safe these days, the Tamil Tigers have pretty been wiped out and even when things were dangerous they were stationed in the north and did not really venture south.

    The areas of Columbo, Kandy and the Golden Triangle etc …
  • US dollars are the currency of choice in Cambodia ... All the cash machines give out US dollars and even if you pay in Cambodian riel your change will come in dollars.

  • It is a beautiful country, make sure you head to lake blood and Bohinj area ~ Beautiful scenery.

  • These countries are not dangerous anymore, although you should still take the usual precautions. Price wise they are still relitively cheap because they are not on the main tourist circuits yet.
  • Nepal is brilliant because even though it is famous for treks, there is so much more. Kathmandu is the busiest place but still very relaxing. Head to Pokhara to chill out by the lake and stroll around. How about Lumbini, not on the main tourist rout…
  • Hi ... Why not check out our website to see if anything takes your fancy. It is www.nepaltravelplan.co.uk


  • Now that the Annapurna circuit is well know, and some argue one of the best treks in the world, there are plenty of guesthouses/lodges to stay at. Definatley take your own sleeping bag though, but it can get cold up there so make sure it is a good o…
