Solo Traveler! - 1st July to 4th September
17th May, 2014
I'm 23 and decided to have a long holiday before I start uni in September. Unfortunately none of my friends are in a position to be able to join me on this trip so i'll be heading out alone.
I've backpacked round Australia before, but for some reason i'm abit more nervous about meeting people or lack of, I have no problem meeting new people. Aside from my main job I work behind a bar on weekends and seem to have no problem having a laugh with all the people I get to meet so I'm probably just overthinking things.
Currently my plans are from arriving in Bangkok on the 2nd July;
4 nights in Bangkok,
overnight bus/boat to Ko Tao,
2 nights in Ko Tao,
3 nights in Ko Samui
4 nights in Ko Phangan
For the above I've already booked places to stay, but I may change my plans. Following that, I plan to make my way from Ko Phangan to Siem Reap and then I'm not committing myself to anything after that. I'm trying to leave my trip as open as possible, and base where I go next on who I meet and what I think of the place i'm in. I have intentions of going to Vietnam and Laos too, I also have intentions of sightseeing, but if i'm not going to be disappointed with not seeing a lot, so long as I can meet some great people along the way.
If anyone is in a similar position or wants to meet up along the way, let me know, would be good to have some people to travel with!

I will be landing in Bangkok July 9th and will spend a few days there before heading to Siem Reap. We may be there around the same time.

Sounds like you've got a great start on your planning. Any chance you might be interested in a supported bicycling tour? I'm looking for a biking partner as the tours in my budget have a two person minimum. Looks like we'll both be in the region for the month of July, so let me know if you're interested and we could talk details. I'm looking to do a tour between 7 and 15 days long. My schedule and choice of locations are flexible.
