I am booking a world ticket and plan to leave first week of September, i would like to travel around south east asia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia for maybe 4 weeks or so. I then plan to go to Oz and travel down the east coast and spend xmas and new year in Sydney. then fly over to NZ beginning of Jan.
I am mainly concerned about travelling on my own around asia, if anybody is interested in this and is planning to go around the same time, let me know as it would be nice to have a companion
I plan to fly to OZ on in the middle of Sept from Ireland. Have no real plans, just 4 weeks there and 3 in New Zealand. Be good if had a few travel buddy. Let me know your plans etc?
I've just posted my own thread about a similar trip, but the dates are a little different. MAybe have a look and see what you think...
hi there Danni....how's you???
im hoping to do more or less the exact same trip at the same time...im wanting to land in vietnam "2-3 week in september"and work my way down the east coast to Ho chi minh city then cross the border into cambodia and onto thailand,making my way to bangkok and on down to the south "phuket" and finally into singapore then catching a flight from there onto oz,either straight to sydney or melbourne.....then make my way by land up to cairns and the gold coast,however im hoping to go onto the south pacific islands after that before making my way home....new zealand has never appealed to me so thoughf id go a little of the beaten track with the cook islands or maybe fiji.....what sort of ideas do you have for cambodia and vietnam as to accomodation wise???/you found any hostels,ive found an awesome one in hanoi run by a group of ozzies,they claim to cater for backpackers and have amazing parties etc etc...check it out "hanoibackpackershostel.com"...apart from that im not sure about hostels along the rest of the route untill bangkok....anyway yup maybe we could hook up if our paths cross...would be great to have you on board,id much rather have someone to share the whole experience with and as ive been a little let down by freinds who have kept saying they were gonna join me id resigned myself to the fact of going it alone...hope to speak soon
