I'm planing a backpack trip for last half of December 2017. It's going to be my first one and I will be doing it alone. Being a new at this (backpacking) I would need your advice into choosing either Sri Lanka or Vietnam. I'll be traveling from Pakistan. PFB, the details and i would really appreciate your advise from your experience.
- will be on tight budget. Around $500 for total traveling. Air fare to and from is separate. Above is the total budget I have to spend there.
- Total trip would be of 10 days including 2 days of flight (I know I know).
- At this stage, I'm not looking for braches. For me a country side (forest/hiking/culture)is more attractive.
- I have heard buying a used bike, using it and then selling it when leaving is a great way (economical). If that's true I am all up for it.
- food: Always up for local n cheap n delicious cousins.
So help me out. I know I don't have much at this time but at this stage that's what i have.
Looking forward to hearing from everyone n their advice.
