    Hey there I am a solo 22 female Canadian planning on doing like ALL of Southeast Asia, Heading over Mid-November hopefully after a stop over in Taiwan. I want to run a half-marathon in Angkor Wat on Dec 6 (which of course you don't have to do!) and eventually complete my divemaster somewhere. But those are really my only plans! I have been to Thailand and Cambodia before but am definitely looking to discover more of them!! I am very adventurous and will try pretty much anything once!! Hit me back if anyone is interested.

    Hey Kelsey

    Chatz here,

    Straight away loving your enthusiasm, half marathon whats that like 7 - 10 km? Personally i haven't seen much of anywhere, so south east asia is going to be a whole new experience. However I am flying into Bangkok on the 10th of October and will be travelling solo anyway. My Itinerary Includes North and South Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia and i'm giving myself until the 28th of December to move on to Oz. Btw, I'm 23, Irish and may be interested in running that marathon as well if ya don't mind the competition???

    Hi Kelsey,

    I'm going to be in SEA from mid November too, solo male, 22 from England. Will be starting in Cambodia and winging it from there. I've also been to Cambodia before but was in one place for most of the time so going back to explore.
    Let me know if you fancy meeting up for a beer some time!

    Hey there

    Fellow Canadian travelling all of SE for roughly 7 months. Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, China (yunnan prov.), Phillipines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia (Bali). Won't be arriving until Feb 1st, but let me know where you plan on being by then. Travelling with another friend of mine, but meeting new people is a big reason for the trip.

    Hey Peeps:

    I am also a Canadian traveling abroad to south east Asia, from mid Jan to late July. I don't really have any plans per say, I'm open for whatever brings good vibes. I am doing my open water and advanced dive whilst in Australia before SE Asia. Would you like to try some Scuba?

    Just adding my name to the list.

    standard form letter:

    I'm a 27 year old American guy on his first real backpacking tour. I'm traveling with a friend until the last week of january. After that i have decisions to make. We head to Chang Mai on the 6th of Jan (for five days or so?) and plan to head to Laos from there. His trip ends in KL in early feb so we intend to head south from laos (by way of cambodia) and back into southern Thailand in time for him to get back. So thats me. I'm always keen to meet people or exchange info and experience.

    Drop me a line at or reply here.

    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, 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?

    Hello :)
    I'm travelling to Thailand on the 12th of November.
    Not really got much of a plan so far, just know I want to do Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. I've never been before and I'm 19 so feeling a little scared!
    Would be good to chat to you.
    Add my facebook if you want;

    Im planning a long trip 2-6 months or more bt Jan-June of 2013. i will backpack through Asia-mongolia, vietnam (speak fluently) , burma, thailand, korean and more. this is my first time to travel outside US. I'm looking forward for this trip. I'm a little nervous to travel alone, if anyone have experience, please share with me or join me (it's better to have 3-4 backpackers to travel together). This trip will have a huge impact on me. Im very serious. This will be my first step that i step outside of my comfort zone. If i couldn't find anyone to backpack with by Novermber 2012, i will join Volunteer Abroad. Thank you. or facebook.
