    Chatz here

    Just been informed the person i was supposed to be travelling with has just dropped out. I'm 23, Irish and up for a laugh, my itinerary includes North and South Thailand, Laos (Tubbing all the way), Vietnam and Perhaps Cambodia. Just looking for people who are looking to get away from western culture, chill out, get away from recession and soak up any experiences South East Asia has to offer i.e. Tubing in Laos, Quad Biking around Koh Tao and a bit of Scuba diving that will let me.

    Hey Chatz

    I'm going to be heading to Thailand starting Oct.20 til Nov.25. I plan on heading to Cambodia for a bit then Laos and winding up in the South Thailand for last couple weeks. I plan on hitting up Koh Tao to get my Scuba certification sometime around mid Nov. So if you aren't certified feel free to join me and if you are then I'd be down for some quadding or a couple brews otherwise. I'm a 22 year old Canadian guy.
    Hope to hear from ya.

    Cheers Guys for getting back to me.
    That sounds cool grapp 77 was planning on geting my cert in diving as well for when i get to Oz. I should be in or around Chang Mai or Pai by the 20th of October if thats any use to ya, as i don't plan on staying in Bangkok any longer than i need to be, so 2-3 days tops. However was planning on being back in S. Thailand for the mid November so i'll definitely stay in touch.

    I'm not following you around Rachael - honest!

    Looks like quite a few people are on the same wavelength with chilling and just getting away from it all and very soon I may add - to say I am excited is a small understatement!

    Never been out to SE Asia let alone solo, so it's with a equal measure of trepidation of "what if I don't meet anyone"! :)

    Hey guys,

    Heading solo to BKK tmw (20th Oct.) and am looking to chill and have some fun. Hvane't got planning my trip at all really. I've only got one thing that's a dead-set - I can take as long as I like so I'm very flexible.

    Bens640, Fancy a beer on Khao San Rd.? I get into BKK on the 21st and should hopefully be settled there in a hostel. If you fancy let me know a time/date and I'll let you know where on KS Rd. If anyone else wants in on the action just get back to me on this.

    Cheers,
    Anthony

    hi!

    Same as all of you - travelling alone and seeking some fun cultural exploring! I'll be in Siem Reap on Wed 28th Oct for 4 days then head to Pnomh Penh just for the night. Will be in Bangkok mon (2nd Nov) arvo for 3 days.

    Seems like I might be in Bangkok when you're there, Rachael. I'm from Aus too. If anyone has a similar itinerary let me know! (particularly the Siem Reap part)

    Hi everyone,

    I'll be in Bangkok on 30th Oct and I'm staying for about 4 or 5 days till I get a visa sorted. Then heading up to Chiang Mai including short stops on the way...I want to stay in North of Thai for about 2 weeks or so and then heading to Laos. I'm a bit unsure to travel on my own in Laos and I'd feel much comfortable to travel with other travelers! SO give me a shout if you are heading there from around 27 Oct. Staying for a month.
    Later possible Vietnam or going straight to Cambodia.
    I wanna spend last 2 weeks in South of Thai before I go back home to Slovakia on 27th Jan.
    Would be great to meet with you guys over a drink and discuss our plans.


    Cheers

    Monika

    Hi guys,

    Me too :) I'll be traveling around SEA for maybe 5 months or so from Nov until Apr. I'm a firm believer that traveling solo is the best, but that's just because you get to meet a lot more people and find yourself in many interesting situations that normally don't present themselves when you're with others. That being said, I would love to meet up with people and bum around. I don't have any definite plans yet, nor even a ticket but I'm definitely going and am open to adventures. I'm 35, male, Russian but live in the USA and have traveled much. Let's stay in touch. Already getting super excited about it!
