I will be travelling through Vietnam from the end of December for about a month, to the end of Jan 2011. I was then thinking about moving onto either Cambodia or Laos or maybe even both (though may not have money for both!). I'm wondering if anyone else is going to be travelling in these places around this time and wanted someone to travel with. I'm travelling alone, (currently in Singapore) which is cool but thought for these countries it would be nice to have a travelling buddy.
Anyhow, let me know if anyone is around

Cambodia or Laos are both nice destinations, it depends on your budget but accommodation and food there are not so expensive! i think you can do both it depends on the time that you have to be there. i know Cambodia better because i've been there, you can visit those beautiful sites: Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom are both sites you shouldn't miss if you are going, after i heard from some friends that Laos is also great! i will recommend you to try to do both even if it's for a short period of time. January is a good time to go there because it won't be so hot! around 30 °C!
for accommodation, i can recommend you some sites, http://www.asiahotels.com/ or http://hotel.twenga.co.uk/, they have good deals if you are on a short budget!
so please let me know how your plans will go and if you like it!
enjoy and have fun!
I hope you're having a good time so far. I've just handed in my notice at work yippie! I'm going to go round the world starting with New Year in Hong Kong and on to Vietnam on about the 5th of Jan then on to Cambodia and Thailand. Never been to Vietnam before but will have to see who I can meet in the hostels, If your about and at a loose end, let me know, I'm 37/M and flying out from London...
I am a Vietnamese guy and living in HCMC, contact me if you need some help here. Nice to make friend with all of you.
