Hi guys so I'm looking to travel to Thailand and Australia leaving the UK in December coming back February time. Looking for a buddy to travel with from the UK. Ive got no set plan I just want to get out there and have some fun and being on the beach on Christmas Day sounds perfect also full moon party is something I've always wanted to do!

Hi Tash, I'm Rosie (20yrold from Sydney). I'm looking to travel to South East Asia on a budget from end of 2014 to early 2015. I'm hoping to visit Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand (in no particular order).
No exact dates, just need to be back for university at the end of February. I went to the Full Moon Party at the beginning of last year. So insane but so much fun! Would definitely been keen to go again.

Hi Tash

I'm looking to be on the Thai islands for Christmas but am having trouble deciding where! I've never been to Asia before so am doing a lot of research and have mostly been given the advice to book somewhere to stay now for Christmas because everything just gets more and more expensive and fills up really quickly. Was planning on just booking most of my accommodation as I go, but think that for Christmas and NY on the islands it might be better to look into getting something sorted! I definitely want to head to full moon for NY and was thinking of maybe Koh Phi Phi or Koh Tao for Christmas... as full moon will be pretty full on, was thinking of a relaxing beach Christmas before things get hectic. Was worried about having to spend Christmas on my own though and want to book accommodation somewhere I will meet people. I'd love to be able to book slightly nicer accommodation over Christmas (although still Budget), but think a standard dorm room in a hostel could be the best way to meet people! Anyway, let me know what you think your plans would be. It would be good if we could get a group together!

By the way, I'm English, age 24, but currently living in Sydney, doing a year in Aus before heading through Asia on my way home.

Hey :)

I am flying to Bangkok in November and am planning to stay for around two months before heading to New Zealand. I would like to travel Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam if I can and hope to be on an island for Christmas. Would really like to meet someone before I go or have a plan to meet someone there as I am now going on my own.

Hi All

I have a flight booked to Australia in December but my circumstances have recently changed so I can pretty much leave the UK whenever! My flights can be changed so that's not a problem. Interested in South East Asia and then Australia and/or New Zealand. Looking for travel buddies with similar plans (not that I have any concrete ones at the moment).

Message me if anyone wants to discuss.
