I'm in the very early stages of planning an overland trip from Singapore to western Europe in October this year. I would like to enquire about the easiest route from a visa point of view. At the moment it seems to be
Singapore -> Malaysia -> Thailand -> Laos -> China -> Russia -> Ukraine -> EU
But this isn't set in stone and depends largely on the ease of getting a visa in various counties. Any pointers on the recommended route?
Specifically regarding visa on arrival, this seems to be only an option if one can show proof of a return ticket. But in my case, I will be using transport that isn't even necessarily booked in advance to cross borders. So I assume I will have to get the visas done in advance anyway. All visas will be done in Singapore.
