27yr-London-lad/First Solo Backpacking trip/S.E Asia/Nov-Dec/NYE in Thailand

Posted by Greatlookinguy on 1/10/2012 at 17:19

Heylo cool folks of TraveFish!

Am arriving in Bangkok sometime in the second or third week of November for two months or so of my very first SOLO backpacking adventure deluxe. Am a London lad visiting family in India at the moment and will be starting my holiday from Bangkok. Booking the flight this week. Tentative itinerary as follows:

Bangkok->Chiang Mai by overnight sleeper train->Flight to Luang Prabang (Laos)-> Bus to Vang Vieng (Party time!)->Bus to Vientienne (Get the visa for Vietnam)->Flight to Hanoi (the whole Hanoi bay experience on an overnight boat or some such)->Train and Bus to Hue (culture), Hoi An (culture & food) & Nha Trang ->Motorcycle from Nha Trang to Dalat (have heard riding a bike through the Vietnam mountains there is a must-do-in-a-lifetime experience)->Bus to HCMC/Saigon->Bus to Phnom Penh->Bus to Seam Reap->Flight to south of Thailand somewhere from Seam Reap->NYE in Ko Pha Ngnan->onwards to Malaysia and S'pore. Should take two to three months. Pretty flexible.

Will see if I've got the cash to go in for a SCUBA diving lesson somewhere. Elephants, jungle watefalls, sleeping on the floor of a village hut for ONE night (to tick that off the list) etc and all that jazz where possible.

Planning to end up in New Zealand by mid Jan or so for a two year working holiday. That's the gig.

Sounds exciting!?! Who would like to join me for part or all the way of it? :-D

If things click, we can form a Facebook group or something and all keep in touch through there. PM me for details.

P.S: I love to party, love to soak into the culture, love to eat - EVERYTHING - once, I like Happy People :-) If you do too, come right on the ride!
