Advice on Seeking Advice

Jump to last reply

There have been a spate of requests by posters have done little or no initial research. It is impossible for strangers to offer helpful advice without:

1. The Original Poster (OP) understanding at least a little about the countries they wish to visit.
2. Their Budget
3. Time constraints
4. Interests, the more specific the better. Also think about this and write them clearly, for first time travelers often state contradictory objectives and interests.
5. Physical limitations or size or make-up of the group traveling
6. Travel experience

Thus it is incumbent upon the OP to state why these countries may be of interest.
Look at a guide book or two to confirm that is a country in which you are interested.
Understand that you will get contradictory advice from strangers. Everyone has their own experiences and their own prejudices. For there some here who live in that country and highly experienced travelers who are extremely generous with their time and knowledge. Then there are others who visited a place once and are trying to make a career of that two week visit.

And once you ask a question, please return to the posting within a few days, if for no other reason to acknowledge the assistance.
