    My wife and i are flying into thailand from canada, first time. we were just thinking about getting a one way ticket, because we don't plan on coming home any time soon, and will be trekking across asia into india throughout the course of at least a year. We are starting to wonder if it's not a bad idea to get a return or open ended ticket instead of a one way. Advice?

    If you're not planning on returning anytime soon, then a one-way sort of fits the bill as it gives you far more flexibility in the onward travel.

    My only suggestion would be to get a tourist visa for Thailand beforehand to avoid any possible dramas about not having an onward ticket. (Unlikely to be an issue, but occasionally it pops up -- most often with the airline before departure).

    I would suggest printing off an intineray of where you are planning to go and a possible flight you may take but nobody i know has ever been asked to prove their onward travel.
