What you can do now long before arriving!
One of the things I did not do before leaving was to network with other people already living in Asia. This has cost me thousands of dollars, figuring it all out, learning everything on the fly is also extremely time consuming. What comes to mind is "a wise man learns from others mistakes"

Lots of people are now set up in Asia earning a living through the Internet. Getting to know some of these people before arriving, could allow you to land in Asia hitting the ground running, saving you a lot of time and cash. If you�re thinking about quitting the 9-5 and going it alone online, here is just a few of the many people already established in Asia. Dan in Bali Joe and Justin in the Philippines and myself Neale in Thailand.

Developing contacts in Asia whilst your still in the West is probably the most important thing you can do now during the months before you leave.
