    Hey Travel Fishies! :)

    I'm a 27-year-old Chinese Canadian, currently living out her dream in New York City. I'm about to embark on another one of my dreams and take on South East Asia for approx. 6 weeks starting July 31! My main focus will be Thailand and would like to spend at least 3 weeks exploring central and northern Thailand, as well as the islands. The remaining 3 weeks will be spent covering the 'major' cities in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, OR Burma. I will be flying back to NYC from Bangkok on September 12, and thus I have to schedule accordingly. At this point, I am in the early phases of my Lonely Planet researching haha, and thus have not finalized which other countries I will be visiting. I was told that it'd be best to stick to ONE other country at most given my timeframe, and thus I have some major brain storming to do in the next few weeks!

    Please don't hesitate to check out my biography to see if we would get along as travel buddies. Looking forward to exploring the best of Thailand and South East Asia with you!

    Hi all,

    I am a Canadian female planning to travel SE Asia for a (short) 2 week stint. Right now, it looks like I'll be in Cambodia from August 20-25th, and in Thailand after that (until early September). I could also do Thailand from August 13th-20th, with Cambodia after.

    If this jives with any of your schedules, please send me a personal message!

    Looking forward to connecting!

    Hello,

    I am looking to do a similar trip fall 2012 or winter 2012. I realize this is later then the dates most have posted on here, but would be interested to see if any other travelers in this timeframe. I am 35 male, that trains in hand to hand combat so not worried about the traveling alone. But any tips or information on the best way to travel the routes of Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand would be great does not have to be in that order.

    Thanks,
