Hello,
I'm planning a trip to SE Asia in March, probably starting out in Thailand and going from there. I'm looking for a female travel companion around my age both for the fun and friendship, and because there's more safety in numbers.

I don't want to set too specific an itinerary because I'm sure adventures will find us after arriving. A few places that I would like to see though are Vietnam, Indonesia, maybe Malaysia, and probably a few of the south sea island cultures.

I'm thinking of getting a small apartment in Bangkok to use as a home-base, and then making trips from there, I've looked into it and it seems to be a pretty cheap way to go ($60-$100 CAD/month). I do like to get a bit off the beaten track and to mix with the locals, so I'll be travelling not in the cheapest of cheap ways, but certainly on the cheaper side.

I have no specific amount of time that I'll stay for, so I propose that we go together, check things out for a bit, not be obligated to be totally joined at the hip every minute, but back each other up, hang out, make trips, and share some of the costs. At some point we can either decide to stick together or go our separate ways, depending on what each of us wants to see, or where we want to go.

Does any of that fit what you've got in mind? If so then please have a look at my profile and if you still think you could put up with me please go ahead and send me a note.

Cheers!

Neat Mick, you'll be a realative newbie too, eh? Have you ever been to Thailand before? It's a bit closer for an Aussie, compared to us Canadians, hey? You've got all the good stuff on your end of the globe!

Awesome, yes! I've never travelled alone before, and also part of what I'm looking forward to about my trip is meeting other people who not only have the "Travel Bug", but also take the step and get out there. So definitely, I'm eager to meet up with all sorts of people out there.
The more the merrier!!

I've never been anywhere in Asia, so there's nothing I've already seen or done, also it's hard to say what'll turn my head once I'm right in it all, but I definitely want to see Vietnam, Malaysia, parts of Indonesia, and maybe India just before coming home. Also, I'd love to check out some of the South Sea islands, maybe the Cooks or the Marshalls, check out the sailing culture in New Zeland perhaps... How 'bout you, are you a first timer in the region, or are you fully acclimatized?
I just know it's going to be amazing!

Hi guys,
Are any of you planning on going down to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party on the 3rd? Am doing a solo round Asia and am going there myself, so was thinking it would be nice to have some ppl to kick about with and get into adventures, maybe even a lil trouble

Cheers
