    Posted from within Vietnam.

    I'm planning a trip from mid november to mid january, perhaps we can meet up and travel a bit together. My plan right now is to start in Thailand and then head to Laos and Cambodia as well, but besides that I don't have a specific itinerary mapped out yet so I'm open to any ideas. I'm planning on keeping it pretty cheap when possible, I don't mind taking long buses or trains, or staying in dorms to save a little extra and make the trip last a bit longer. I don't mind travelling alone but I've found it can be more fun to have someone to share the adventure with. I'm hoping I'll find some easy going people close to my age, female or male, who want to see the sights, experience the culture and have a good time along the way.

    I'm a 24 year old female from the US and I've spent the Last year in asia teaching english. Right now I live inHanoi. I finish my contract in November and want to get a couple months of travelling in before I go. I like seeing the sights and experiencing the culture and trying new things but I also like to drink and enjoy wild nights out that can happen so often while you're traveling.

    I've done quite a bit of traveling and have seen parts of these countries before, but I want to take time and really experience all they have to offer before I head back to the states in January.
    If you're interested in meeting up or traveling together reply here or send me a PM

    Hi Emily.

    I've booked a flight and land in Bangkok on 19th November.

    I've not booked anything other than my flight, as although I have a 'plan' of what I wouldn like to do, I also want to keep it pretty loose, as I'm sure I'll meet some really amazing people along the way.

    My initial plan is to stay in Bangkok for a few nights and get used to the time difference, then I'd like to travel to Chaing Mai, over to Laos, then Vietnam, Cambodia, then down for some Island hopping.

    I am trying to save as much as I can at the minute, but I'm pretty useless at it, so also want to keep it as cheap as possible, so am planning on staying in dorm style hostels.

    I'm 24 and from London. This will be my first trip - Mega excited.

    im doing a massive custom RTW trip but I land in Bangkok on 1st November.

    I've not booked anything for the SE asia part of my trip other than a cheap hostel for the full moon on the 28th nov, like stacey as although I have a 'plan' of what I would like to do, I also want to keep it simple so i can go with the flow, as I know there will be loads of people along the way doing cool and intresting things.
    pm if you want to talk swap ideas, meet up?

    I'm flying into Bangkok on Sunday (11 Nov) so if anyone is around then, would be good to grab a beer and exchange travel plans... I only have two weeks off work (boo!) and am thinking I'll probably head to Cambodia, though I haven't totally decided yet!

    Be good to hear from anyone who's planning to be there at the same time and travelling to Cambodia, or Laos...
