    I'm a solo 26yr Canadian female traveling through SEA for 2 months. Starting in Thailand (Bangkok) on the 26th and heading north in Thailand then to Laos and then Cambodia and Vietnam somewhere in there.

    First time in SEA but have traveled across Europe and Japan. Looking for travel buddies along the way...if you're in the area or think we might across paths let me know!

    Where is it you fly into,Bangkok international? Myself and another friend are flying into Bangkok on the 1st June and are then heading north into Laos and carrying on into vietnam and south into Cambodia. We have around 3 months so we can be very flexible with dates etc.
    The more the merrier :)

    Yes I'll be flying into the international airport in Bangkok. I'll only be in the city for a few days but I'll be spending about a week in Chiang Mai beginning of June before taking the riverboat in Laos to Luang Prabang.

    Hope to catch up with you two along the way! :)

    Currently in Bangkok and slowly heading north towards Chang Mai, planning to get the slow boat to Laos sometime during the first week of June and then Vietnam and Cambodia after that. Probably doing it over a similar time frame to you as well :)

    I imagine you're pretty far ahead of me by now, but I'm in Chiang Mai at the moment. Planning to get to Laos for the slowboat soon, then heading down to Cambodia. Any chance of catching you up?

    Hi, I am also a solo female traveler. I am 23 and from the United States. I will be here for around 6 weeks traveling the region. I started off in Bangkok and working my way north. I am currently Sukhothia and heading the Chaing Mai tomorrow. I'm staying there a few days then heading towards the Laos border and slow boating it to Luang Prabang. After that heading back down South? and Cambodia next? Let me know if anyone can/wants to meet up!

    Hey helloimjen, sounds like your plans are pretty similar to mine. I'm in Chiang Mai for another 2-3 days (possibly going to Pai for a day), and was then planning to head to Laos for slow boat then travel down to Cambodia. Slow boat sounds pretty epic so it'd be good to have some company! I'm staying at SK2 guesthouse, but am checking the internet most days so feel free to e-mail me on or add me at if you want some company :-)


    p.s. i'm 23/m from the uk by the way! i'm in the area for another 4 weeks and then going to visit the US!
