Hello all!

I am heading out for Thailand next February and am looking for a platonic female travel partner, even just for a few days. I will be there for three months, up until May and then back to the states. If any fellow female travelers plan on being out in Thailand during this time I would love to meet up and possibly travel together! Really easy going, pretty open itinerary, just looking for great experiences and new adventures.

Maya :)

Regular stuff.

Maya, make sure your visa allows you to stay for 3 months.

Don't rely on a single debit card for your spending money. (The card could be damaged, stolen or lost.) If bringing debit and credit cards remember to tell your banks that you will be using their cards n Asia before leaving home. For US dollars you will get a better rate of exchange changing USD in Thailand. Even the rate at the airport on arrival is better than what you can get in the US.

Usually round trip plane tickets work out cheaper than two one way flights. So if you were planning on buying 2 one way flights - do the math!

There are quite a few posts for "solo woman traveler" or similar wording. If this is the first time in Asia read a few of those posts.

Have fun.

I am also planning a trip the 3rd quarter of this year and planning to go to Thailand as well. It's nice to know that you guys love to have a travel buddy and honestly I haven't experience it yet so it's kinda exciting.

Hey I'm currently in Thailand at the moment. Looking for someone to travel with me on weekends mainly. Want to explore bangkok chiang mai ayutthaya pattaya and then the islands down south. Maybe we could plan to meet and travel at some point?

Hello Maya and everyone,
I'm currently traveling solo in New Zealand and headed to SE Asia beginning April 6 for three months (flying into KL, Malaysia) and would also be interested in a travel buddy. Thailand is definitely on my list and I'm open to figuring out an itinerary together or just going with the flow based on our interests or what catches our eye. One of my fav hobbies is trying out local street food so any adventurous or at least open-minded eaters would be a huge bonus.

Stacie :)
