Solo Female Traveler Looking for Travel Friends

Posted by JDavie on 24/4/2013 at 09:06

Hello Everyone!

I am planning on going to SE Asia for my first time in a couple of months. I do not know exact dates as of yet, but I'm thinking late August/early September. I would like to stay in SE Asia for quite some time (perhaps 4-6 months, going from Thailand to many different parts of SE Asia) and I will be traveling solo. I have traveled solo before, although not extensively, and I enjoyed it, although it's always nice to meet and make friends with fellow travelers, especially being a female solo traveler. If you are also planning a trip to SE Asia around this time, I'd love to hear from you! Perhaps we can build a little penpal friendship over the next few months via e-mail or whatever and then we can meet up down in Asia! I am quite laid back and up for many things, although I am not going to SE Asia for the sole purpose of partying and drinking. I am 24, Canadian, open minded and ready for adventure!
Please do not hesitate to reply to me either on here or in a private message.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Ya, what part of Canada? I arrive in Bangkok on the evening of August 17th, currently planning to spend 5 weeks in Thailand/Cambodia but might be extending to 2 months if I can save a little bit more. 27/m/Edmonton Alberta. I plan on doing my own thing for the most part but I'm always cool with meeting up for a trek or a couple days/week of traveling.

I booked it in mid February. I decided that if I booked it then it would force me to save money to go and it did (already 20% above my budget and may stay longer), if I didn't I would have probably spent my money on stupid stuff lol. Paid $1400 round trip through AMA.

Hey there!

Are you in SE Asia? I'm a solo female traveler as well who will be in Indonesia this November, then traveling up through Malaysia into Thailand etc etc. It would be great to have some company!

Hi everyone, I'm currently in China and planning on heading down to Vietnam in the next week or so. I'm planning to travel through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, spending about a month in each. Would be good to have some company if anyone wants to meet up?

Hello: I spent 3 1/2 months traveling in SE Asia last year and will return this year. I am flexible and plan on flying into Bangkok in December or January. I am traveling solo, same as last year and will stay until mid april. I am a 67 year old USA man, active and in good health with no restrictions. Might be fun traveling with someone else a bit.

I'm a 68 y/o male from the USA. Healthy and active with no restriictions. I'll be arriving in Bangkok on Dec. 3, and have no particcuular destination beyond than that, except traveling thhrouugh SEA, and in that region. I did the same last year and enjoyed it so much I am returing this year. I enjoy travelling solo, but traveling with someone can be fun, too. Let me know if you are interested in connnecing.
