Hey Jake,

Me and a mate are also heading to Thailand in May. We are probably not going to Vietnam etc but are travelling Thailand and Malayasia and Indonesia and then a trip to Fiji.
We arrive in Bangkok on 12th May, nd start from there to go onto Koh Samui.

Enjoy your travels and keep us updated! x

Hi to both of you,

I am also planning a trip to Asia then onto Oz and New Zealand. I'm a 29 year old female and taking a career break in May for 6 months. I was planning on starting in North Thailand and then onto Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, South Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia then onto Oz and New Zealand.

I'm going book my flights booked in the next couple of weeks. It's my first time travelling and I'm doing it on my own so would be great to have plans to meet up with some people along the way.

When are you guys planning on booking?

Nicci

Hi Nicci,

We have already booked ours, we arrive in Bangkok on May 12th! But our plans have changed a little, so we are now not heading to Oz and going to be doing that on a separate trip next year!

However, we are still heading to Thailand, Malayasia and Indonesia!

Hi Jake,

Not planning on staying in Bangkok for any time at all, literally a night! but we will be in Thailand for 6 weeks onwards...as we now plan on going to North and vietnam etc whereas we werent doing that before. We will probably still be in the area when u come in June!

How are your plans going?

ye ive heard a lot of negative stuff about bangkok actually, but might have to spend a couple of days there and check it out, if i can find anything to do, before moving on. thats good if youre still there then. do you have facebook and we can have a proper chat?

ive not made much advancement with my plans but would like to get some flights booked soon as before the prices go up. think i need to go back to the travel shop and get some figures. how much did your travel cost if u dont mind me asking? x

yeah we will be heading to bangkok on 12th may, doing the islands then heading up to chang mai before going on to vietnam etc. yeah i have facebook, i think im set to private so u wont find me but i'll look for you.

yeah def try and get some flights sorted asap, prices go up daily! we booked ours last july haha. we booked ours with STA travel, was a good idea to start off with as we didnt have a clue what we were doing to be honest! orginally we were flying to Oz first so our flight was 500.00 quid i think but we changed it to Thailand. we are flying with Emirates so also check their website out too.

I would suggest sitting down with a map, getting a good idea of where places are etc and where u want to go. considering we have been planning this for so long, i still dont feel i know 100% what we are doing, but thats the joy of travelling, we will go wherever we feel like! we've now added Borneo to our list of places.
