CheapOAir is giving you the chance to be the Traveler of the year and win a 30 day trip to either China or India! The winners will both receive $7,500 to travel China and India for 1 month with a travel companion! Although $7,500 does not seem much, I can assure you after living in China, and traveling SE Asia for five months with my backpack, $7,500 for 30 days of travel is PLENTY! I spent less than $5,000 in five months in SE Asia (sure I wasn’t staying at the Hilton, but I was VERY comfortable!) only three years ago.
The winners will travel the country of their choice (one to China and one to India) and will create fun, unique and informative videos, photographs, travel articles and social media messages around challenges to find the best value in their quest for an ultimate, once in a life time experience.
The two travelers will then explore each country and go head to head to find the best deals and make the best documentary of their travel journal via video posts, pictures, articles, and tweets! The winner will take home an addition $5000 cash prize!
