Travel plans April - June 2010

Posted by amylou on 3/12/2009 at 09:28

Hi I am planning a 3 month trip through Cambodia, Vietnam & Thailand in April 2010 & wondered if anyone has any similar plans for next year? I am a 25y/o female from UK, currently living in NZ & spent a year in OZ. I will be returning to UK after Asia. I have been looking at organised tours but not really that keen on doing the typical tourist thing! Does anyone have any suggestions, advise or similar plans? cheers, A

Hi amylou

I am a 24 yr old girl from the UK currently in Oz until the end of February. My plans are then to fly over to Singapore and then work my way up by land through SE Asia. Haven't got a definite route yet but am thinking Malaysia/Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam/Laos and back to the UK from Thailand at the end of June. I know it's only a vaguely similar plan to your but similar all the same. Let me know if you want to speak more about it.

Hey there, My name is Elle and I'm a 27 year old Aussie, will be heading to SEA on my own in March for a couple of months. I've been to Thailand before and am hoping to get to laos, vietnam and cambodia if I can fit them in. Would love to have some company at some point!

Hi Guys!

I'm a 27 year-old Canadian female currently teaching English in Korea. I plan on travelling to SE Asia in early Feb 2010. I fly into Phnom Pehn around Feb. 8th. I've already done Vietnam, so I am thinking Camodia, Laos, Thailand, Malayasia, Singapore, maybe Indonesia... I have about 5 or 6 months. I hope to travel and volunteer (schools, orphanages)/WHOOF (work on organic farms). Anyone interested in meeting up at some point?! Never travelled alone, so I am a little nervous!

I am a 29yr girl from NZ planning on a 3 month-ish trip through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Am booked to leave NZ on the 7 March into Singapore for a few days and then head straight up into Thailand.

First time traveling solo (eek!) so have decided to hit Thailand first as I have been there before, but it would be great to catch up with others doing the same!

Totally flexible with plans and keen to pick up some travel tips too :)

Hi Em, cool sounds like a similar plan to me. Would be great to meet up with you two girls. I will email you when my flights are all sorted - still debating what date to leave NZ. I am pretty nervous about going in just over 2 months time...but its exciting too!:-)

I will be in touch, Cheers Amy

Hi All,

Will be traveling to Thailand in mid-May and returning mid-June for roughly a one month stay. Have not booked anything yet, so my travel plans are very up in the air and flexible. I will be flying into Bangkok and visiting an Uncle in Chiang Mai, but other than that have no plans. Anyone interested in traveling cheaply or need a travel buddy? I'm a 22 year old male from the States. Feel free to contact!

Hello! I am a 18 year old Canadian female who plans to go to SE asia in April. I was thinking start in Indonesia or philipines, then head all the way up through vietnam/cambodia/laos/thailand/malaysia/singapore and end up in India. Maybe 5 months or so? I dont really have a plan yet, havnt book flights yet - going to do it last minute.

Yeah, Then coming back down to Australia till december, then going back home.

I am currently in Australia, arrived in January, and was in NZ a month before that. Im travelling with a friend from back home but she doesnt have enough money to go to asia... maybe she will work down in aus while i go to asia and she'll meet up.

But i definately dont want to go to asia myself!

feel free to contact me! my email is
