SE Asia - October-December - First time traveler.

Posted by JamieMH on 3/8/2011 at 11:51

Get me out of here!
A friend of mine spent six months trekking around India and has inspired me to get out and have an adventure of my own. I plan on landing in Bangkok around Oct 1st and plan on staying till late December when I'm gonna fly to Germany to meet up with some friends for New Years. I'm tired of waiting around for someone to go with so I'm just gonna head out. I have no set plan on where to go but I know I want to hop around Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and possibly Vietnam if I find time.
As a 23/f, I'm a little nervous about those first few weeks and would love to meet up with some laid-back people. Please, let me know if you'll be around or any hints on which hostels in Bangkok are good for meeting up with fellow travelers!
Thank you!

i've been talking to the guys at Master Divers, they are one of the best for diving in koh tao. They can even arrange rooms at reasonable price, though i am still to make a booking with them but they look good....if you are sure about your plans and wanna join in please get in touch with me at nagyrocks@gmail.com :)

pretty much anywhere on Khoa San, you are going to find plenty of people who are probably doing similar things. I'll probably be in Burma until about that time and landing back in Bangkok. I heard that the King's bday is oct. 5, so if you hang out in Bangkok it could be fun!

Hey guys,

Looks like we are all doing similar routes. I'll be landing in Bangkok on the 16th October so if anyone is still around send me a message and we could meet up for a drink. This will be my first venture into the world of backpacking, I will definitely need a drink when I arrive, ha! x

Hey guys,

Globalgypsy I'll be landing in Hanoi on the 26th and doing something very similar. Have until the 14th of December when I fly out of Bangkok. If you're still looking for travel buddies I'm sure we could meet up at some point.

I'm a 26 year old American dude that just finished up teaching in Seoul, traveling for 5 months. Just finished 3 weeks in India and a month in Nepal, about to head back to India for another 3 weeks before SE Asia. Let me know!
