Hey guys,

I am landing in Bangkok on the 16th October for my first solo backpacking adventure(Argh!)!!
I will be spending around 4 months travelling through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. If anyone is around and fancies meeting up then send me a message. I want to visit all the sights and soak up the culture, hit a few beaches and experience the nightlife south east asian style! x

Hey Sandeep,

I am not sure of my exact plan yet (I have a very very rough route planned) but I think I should be in Cambodia around that time, I am just not sure where at the moment though. Where abouts are you thinking of going to whilst your there? x

Hey L087,

From what I read on travel forums, Siem Reap and surrounding areas should take 3-4 days,so I guess there and Phnom Penh are the places that I can cover! On a side note, am also thinking planning to explore the Borneo rainforests and climb Mount Kinabalu!

Hey both,

First ever post here...anyway...it's also my first ever backpacking trip and I'm arriving in Bangkok on the 1st of November I think.Will be around for almost 3 months hoping to go to the same countries as you. No real plans or anything yet either but if our paths cross at some point it could be good to meet up. Private message me nearer the time if you fancy it and we'll take it from there.

22/M/UK by the way :)

Hey tallevans,
A lot of us first time backpackers on here it seems! I should still be in Thailand when you arrive (prob Chiang mai or somewhere up north) but send us a message when you know your plans (your message service is disabled at the moment) and we can sort something x

Not long to go guys!!

Hey Kez,
I will be landing in Bangkok on the 16th so if your still around then it would be great to meet up. If not I too will be heading upto Chiang Mai, I want to stay there for quite a bit, do some trekking, cookery course etc. I'm sure we can sort something!

Hey Travla,

Sounds like you have a good plan just going with the flow. Not sure if we will be in the same places/same time but if we are it would be good to meet up!

Hey Lindsay,

Not long until you go now! I will send you a message and we can sort something out!

Hope everyone is as excited for there travels as I am! x

I'm a 27/m from chicago travelling for my first time in Asia. I'm looking to soak up the culture with the locals and check out some beaches.

Email me if you might be interested in trekking around for a bit.

Hi all...

I am arriving into Bangkok on the 20th of November. Haven't really made any solid plans other than to make my way to Ko Pha Ngan for the December full moon party. It's my first time travelling solo, and would be great to hear from anyone arriving at a similar time.

I'll be taking a bus up to Chang Mai soon after I get back into Bangkok and then heading into laos after that. Let me know of you're going to be in those areas soon and if you're still looking for a travel partner! You can email me at m.barnard@umiami.edu

Hi,

I will be travelling solo as well and doing all those countries. No real solids plans yet but I will be in Cambodia for 2 months from Dec 2nd at least before heading onto the other countries. Will be in SE Asia for 6-12 months. I can speak pretty good Khmer enough that I can have a decent conversation with locals. Have toured cambodia before and I love the place and am quite familiar with Siem Reap. Will probably be trying to get DJ/Bar work in cambodia. If anyone wants to catch up whether in cambodia or anywhere else let me know. 31/M/Australia

Cheers :)
