The recent opening of the highway from India to Thailand has got everyone buzzing, and rightly so. It’s not just getting to Bangkok that’s exciting, it’s the countless wonders you’ll see along the way. There are, however, a bunch of other countries you can go to in the comfort (?) of your car. Road trips are always eventful, and though some of these may seem daunting, there are still people who have done it, and you don’t really hear them complaining!

Here are a some international road trips you can take from India.

3. New Delhi To Malaysia

Distance: 5629.3 Kms

Time: 90 Hours

Malaysia really embodies the cultural spirit of the area, with sky scrapers existing hand in hand with houses on the river. They also have some of the best food around, a welcome treat after driving that massive distance. You might have to go through Tibet though, and that will present problems in terms of independent vehicle movement.

If being the happiest country in Asia isn’t reason enough to visit Bhutan, the rich heritage, culture and strangely vibrant atmosphere of the place will convince you. This tiny Himalayan nation is far out (in every meaning of the word) but doable.

8. New Delhi To China

Distance: 4165 Kms

While it’s a very long and arduous process, it is technically possible to drive to China by car. The problem lies in procuring the independent travel pass, which takes ages to get approved. If you do make it though, let us know!
