Travel Buddys wanted!! April-July

Posted by jleonard on 12/1/2011 at 01:26

Hi Guys,

I'm 29 yr old solo female heading to SE Asia for 14 weeks from April to July. I'm flying to Bangkok on 18 April and I intend to visit Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and probably Malaysia and Indonesia depending on time.

I am just starting to plan my itinerary now so I'm really flexible. If anyone else is travelling during this time who wants to join up let me know.

Hmm, I'm flying into Hanoi the 18th of April and heading southward in Vietnam then over to Cambodia and Bangkok by June. We might cross paths depending on what your itinerary looks like.

hi there,

though i might not have as much time as you do... maybe about 3 months for me, but would definitly like to visit each country as well, but as you mentioned, it's all about time... is this trip a 1st for you, it will be for me...

what are your plans, beaches, site seeing, trekking/hiking, villages, partying, a bit of everything?

i'm from toronto, 30 y/o male.

Im a 25yo guy from Manchester, im pretty laid back and easy to get along with. Im flying out to Bangkok early April on my own and planing to pretty much the same countries as you. I am planning on travelling Thailand first then Vietnam from the beginning of June then moving onto cambodia or Laos then maybe back to Thailand or Malaysia / Indonesia.
My plans are fairly loose though so im willing to change them. Let me know if you wanna meet up or if you've got any questions just message me back.

Hey World! My name is Burton. I am from Las Vegas, NV. I will be arriving in BKK on April 12th. I don't really have any plans except to travel and have a damn good time. I am 30/m and will be traveling SOLO. I plan to travel from around 3 to 6 months, but I have no plans or dates that I have to come back so just go with the flow. I plan to try and see all of the counties J listed in her post as well. I would really like to meet up with some of you and have some traveling buddies. You can find me on Facebook (Burton Wheeler) in Las Vegas, NV (profile pic is The Beach) or e-mail me at I hope to hear from some of u soon. I can't believe I will be in Paradise in 1 month.

Hi there!

I am a 26 year old woman from San Francisco looking for travel partners for June. I am flexible and am in beginning stages of planning (my travel buddy who was supposed to go with me just canceled). I'm looking at spending no more than 5 days in Bangkok, I want to go to Chiang Mai and other areas of northern Thailand, then travel down to the southern beaches. At some point I also want to go to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat. Those are my preliminary must-see places and I'm also totally open. I hope you are currently having a nice time traveling and hope to hear from you!

Hey there,
25 y/o female from Massachusetts
I'll be traveling solo (first time ever!) starting the beginning of May- early to mid June (~4-5 weeks) and would like a traveling buddy for part or most of my time in SE Asia. I haven't finalized anything yet or have definite dates yet...still deciding on the dates to leave and return. As of now, I plan to start in Thailand and end in Vietnam. For Thailand, I would love to check out Bangkok, the temples, beaches, eat, shop,some of the islands, and Chiang Mai. For Vietnam, I def want to see Hanoi, maybe Halong Bay, Da Lat, Mui Ne (sand dunes), eat, shop, and end in Ho Chi Minh City. I'm only saying maybe to Halong Bay because I know at some point I'll come back to Vietnam. Other than that, the rest I'm pretty open to. I would also like to visit either Cambodia or Malaysia, if time permits. Let me know if anyone would like to meet up in May-June

hi, well officially got my time off from work this week, about 4 months to be exact, was only planning 3, but another month wouldn't hurt i don't think... just need to book my flight to HK.

i'm arriving to HK before april 8th, as i have something to do that day.. and hopefully leave around the 10th or so... just before the water festival and full moon party few days after that... and will try to meet up with another member from here....

Hey Ryder

I plan on spending 4/10-4/14 in Bangkok, then 4/14-17 in Chiang Mai. The New Year/Water festival is biggest in those 2 cities. From then I'm flying to Koh Samui/Koh Pha Ngan for the full moon party, then checking out Ko Phi Phi and Phuket after that.

hiya scrubs,

don't know if i'll be booking my flight from HK to thailand as of yet, will need to deal with some issues there 1st when i'm actually there, but am hoping after april 8th, i'm free to do my thing and take off... and no idea whether i'll land in bang kok or phuket, but since you mentioned the events taking place are more popular in bangkok and chiang mai, that sounds like a plan... and koh pha ngan for the full moon event... what mode of transportation are you taking from bangkok to chiang mai...

Hello all! Seems to be a lot of overlapping itineraries floating around - for my part, I'm arriving in HCMC on May 20, then will make my way north through Vietnam over ~3 weeks before hitting up Siem Reap/Angkor Wat for a few days. Anyone doing something similar or want to meet up for a few days somewhere along the way?

I'm a 25 year-old male from Boston/Miami, depending on how you measure, and taking a month off before starting a new job.
