Arriving BKK 16th Feb 2010 - Travel buddies

Posted by shadek on 18/12/2009 at 16:09

Hi there,

I'm a 30yo female travelling for the 1st time to SEA and I will be doing it for 1 1/2 month alone. Have being to many countries on my own already (Europe, Brazil, Morocco...) and done just fine, but to be honest I'm getting quite scared with the idea of going to Asia on my own - since I bought the ticket it has been a rollercoaster of emotions!

I'm arriving on the 16th Feb - anyone arriving around this date??

Hi there

I'm arriving BKK Feb 28, looking to spend 2 - 3 days with someone and then do a trip to Angkor for another 3 days. Not sure if you're still around by that Feb 28? Check out my post if you're interested.

Best, Missy77

Hi all,

I'm also heading into BKK around the 16th of Feb.

I'm a 30 y.o. female American, have done a fair bit of other travel (Europe, Australia, Africa), but have never been to Asia. I'm planning on traveling around SEA 1.5-2 months. Very excited!

hi,

i will be travelling in vietnam for 2 weeks after 19Feb, onwards solo to laos for a week before heading into thailand for another 2 weeks. that means i will miss you by about a month. is anyone of you going to be around still?

i am a female from m'sia, in my mid 30s, had been to cambodia (PP and angkor wat) and some places in europe, used to work in the uk.

although i am an SEasian, i have to admit that i am rather worried about travelling alone is SEA. dont know why probably because the transport system is not that well developed and places of interest seem far into the jungle or somewhere remote.

anyhow, have a good time. drop me a line at sylvanshades@netscape.net if you happened to be in northeast thailand enroute to bangkok and west coast of southern thailand. btw, east coast is out since it is the east coast monsoon season and it is no fun at all being caught in a SEA monsoon rain.

laiyi

Hello All !!!!
I'm a solo female traveller, arriving in Thailand on the 22nd feb and staying for 5 weeks... On a tight budget (guess thats what happens when you're at the end of your journey !) but would like to head to Koh tao and KPN if possible as well as a trip to laos... Would love to meet up with some like minded travellers to share the memories (and costs :) ) with ! My plans are to spend as much time on the beach as possible, with a few cold beers and some local food... if this sounds good to you i'd love to hear from you ! happy travels :)
