    Hello

    I am currently residing in Malaysia. Got selected for Aiesec internships for 3 countries. Each internship is 6 weeks long and Accomodation would be provided to me by the host country. I am in a bit of dilemma hope someone can help me out here.

    1. Russia

    This Aiesec internship is called explore russia where I would be basically exploring Russia for 6 weeks. Its in Krasnoyark , Siberia . Its quite far away from Malaysia but its the one that interests me the most. The downside is expensive ticket and long flight(am not a great flyer).

    2. Mauritius

    Only 7 hours from Malaysia by plane. This aiesec internship is about promoting Mauritian culture and sports in the community for 6 weeks.

    3. Srilanka

    Its the cheapest option out of the three. Its an internship where I have to basically make people aware about Various diseases and stuff. Cheapest ticket and only 3 hours from here. But have the least interest in it out of the three.

    If someone could give an advise in deciding anything would appreciate it .

    I will be going in January

    Just go with the one that interests you the most, so what if Russia has the most expensive ticket? This is an opportunity you will never get again. If you go with Mauritius or Sri Lanka you will probably regret not going to Russia for a long time.

    You can earn back the money you lost but you can't get this opportunity again.

    Thanks for your input.

    Just got done with more searching of Tickets. Vietnam airlines are offering KL - Moscow return Tickets for $360-400 with a 10 hour layover in ho minh. Sounds too good to be true.

    It's cheap due to the 10 hour stopover. I had a 6 hour stopover at Shanghai pudong airport and that was awful! I had no headphones or any food and I just died.

    I'd go with Russia.

    It's about the opportunity. Is missing it out really worth more than the material cost of a flight?
