24/f/uk looking for travel buddy from Sep 2012 onwards

Posted by ohhhayleybop on 6/3/2012 at 17:22

Hi all,

I'm a 24 year old woman living in Manchester, UK.

Im looking to travel around South East Asia, starting in Thailand at around September 2012 - Feb 2013 time. I haven't booked flights yet and I haven't got a set route yet as I'm still in the thinking stage but I'd love to travel all around Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam and maybe more if the budget allows!

I'd like to meet someone male or female, or a group of people, around the same age, who'd like to travel part or all of the way with me! It'd be awesome to become friends before we travel so we could plan a route together.

Please contact me if you have a similar vision!

Hi Hayley,

I'm a 21 year old from Leeds and I'm also looking for someone to travel with around South East Asia. I'm hoping to visit Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and maybe Malaysia, and will be heading out there mid September!

Get in touch if you're interested, I really don't want to head out there alone!

im doing a massive custom RTW trip but I land in Bangkok on 1st November.

I've not booked anything for the SE asia part of my trip other than a cheap hostel for the full moon on the 28th nov, although I have loose 'plan' of what I would like to do, I also want to keep it simple so i can go with the flow, as I know there will be loads of people along the way doing cool and intresting things.
pm if you want to talk swap ideas, meet up?

Hi Hailey!!
I am a 24 yr old female from Canada. I will be heading to Koh Samui, Thailand mid September-mid October to complete my yoga teachers training certificate program. I am then planning on staying in Thailand for a month or two and continuing through SEA with hopes of hitting Malaysia, Laos, Philippines and Indonesia. I have a return flight set from Hong Kong back to Toronto on March 6th 2013. I am traveling solo as well and would love for a travel buddy. Let me know what your plans are closer to September and it would be great to meet up along the way.

Hi all, I'm 21/m from Liverpool. I fly out to Bangkok on 5th of November, doing a few days in Bangkok with a friend before we head to Pattaya. He flys home on the 30th and then i will be traveling around Thailand for the next month before i head into Cambodia, then Nam, then Laos. My route isn't set and i don't plan to structure it until my feet hit the ground and from the 30th I could be found roaming anywhere. I plan to stay about 3-6 months, but having been Thailand before, i can see me getting lost i nthe place and staying longer. The only place set in stone where i HAVE to be. Is Ko Samui full moon beach party December 25th! Where better to spend Christmas day than the best beach party in the world! Add me on facebook if you want

I am traveling solo to Bangkok from the US on a one-way flight Sept 9th. I plan to spend a couple of weeks in Bangkok and then head north to the countryside for a month or so, and then make my way south to the islands. I am hoping to volunteer along the way, and have been in contact with a few Animal Welfare Leagues, WOOF Hosts, etc., but don't have a specific route/schedule/anything planned out. This is my first trip to SE Asia, and my first solo trip, so I would love to meet up with fellow travelers & drink a few beers, or head a direction together. My e-mail is coreyrobbins at, FB is facebook/corey.robbins.9210. Please e-mail me if you're interested in meeting up!
