Yup I have my whole itinerary completed. For Thailand I'm going to Bangkok, Koh Phangan, Aonang, Phuket, Koh Phi Phi and in Vietnam I'm going to Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An and Hanoi and in Cambodia I'm only going to Siem Reap.

Thailand - March 24 - 29
Cambodia - March 29 - April 2
Thailand - April 2 - 14
Vietnam - April 14 - 20

Have you thought of where you want to go in the 3 countries?

Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh -> Nha Trang -> Da Nang -> Hoi An -> Hue -> Hanoi -> Ha long bay

Cambodia: Phnom Penh -> Kampong Thom -> Siem Reap

Thailand: I'm going to be there March 7-20 and April 4-16. Not sure where exactly I'll be in March but April I'm going to south towards Koh Phangan, Surat, and Krabi.

Are you going to full moon party in April on Koh Phangan? I've been trying to figure out where to stay but haven't made up my mind.

Yup I'm going to the full moon party. I'm staying at a resort as all the other places didn't appeal to me. It's more expensive, but it'll be worth it.

I'll be in the South part of Thailand in April as well.

Where are you from?

Sweet..I grew up in Ontario but am in Alberta now.

yeah age is just a number, but better late than never.... i was actually 30 as well when i started my SEA trip, celebrated my 31st birthday in july in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

would have been nice to have started this way earlier in my late teen's or early 20's, during my journey, met alot of travellers around my age, but the age range is all over the place there...

Hey Soumya! That'd be great. I don't get in until 11pm on March 24th though and I'll probably be wiped. We could meet up on the 25th if that works for you? Are you staying close to Khao San Road? Let me know.

Samui 1st -7th April

Thinking of doing Ko Tao after the full moon, Krabi and Phi Phi.

Steve - I'm trying to get a group of us together for the FMP. Are you interested in meeting up with us before the party just so we get to know each other?

Soumya sorry we didn't meet up. 24th was a very long day and got no sleep that night so the 25th was a very long day. Are you still in Thailand? Maybe we can catch up somewhere else.
