Travel buddy for Vietnam. Arrive Vietnam (Saigon) 11 June. 30/m backpacker.

Posted by SteveRST on 8/5/2011 at 20:25

Hi all!

I'm arriving Saigon on 11th June and am keen to meet up with some like-minded travel buddies to share our adventures in Vietnam! I'll be in Vietnam for around a month, and am pretty keen to buy a motorbike and tour around on that. Maybe do more conventional travelling too though - I'm pretty flexible, nothing much planned yet. Basic plan is to travel from South to North!

I'm an English backpacker (32! But don't let that scare you - no-one believes me when I tell them that!). Pretty chilled out guy, love exploring, snorkelling/diving, walking, seeing awesome views and of course having quite a few beers and a good time too!

Hey Steve,

I'm flying into Hanoi on June 5th so I'm travelling North-South so maybe we can meet in the middle :-p

Pretty flexible about what to do as long as I'm having a good time. Want a mix of adventure/chill out/party.

If you want to meet up at some stage email me at

Hey dude you're a man after my own heart - I'm landing in Bangkok on 28th May and I have no fixed agenda, but I've always been thinking that motorbike adventure would be awesome. I don't think I can promise to be there at the moment, but why don't you add me to facebook and we'll see what happens? My facebook is on my profile.

I was looking at Laos - there's some awesome-looking bike routes there on high mountain plateaus and you can hire road bikes or even dirtbikes for it.

Good to hear from you guys! Yeah, I'll keep in touch and maybe we can meet at some stage in Vietnam.
Andy - I can't see yr profile - it doesn't seem to let me.

Any more ppl interested in meeting up around HCMC in mid June?
