Hello this is my third forum in which i've copied and pasted my info info so here it goes again ;)

Im 23 M from Australia. Basically I'm going to be travelling solo to Vietnam, Saigon from the 16th of June thru till July sometime. This is my 3rd time visiting Vietnam 1st time solo though. I kinda know my way around the city well in terms of nightlife.

At the moment I don't have any plans, was going to wing it cause I have been there before. I do have a tour booked from the 23rd-30th. So if anybody legitely wants to join me on some day tours or a few brews your more than welcome.

By the way, I speak a little vietnamese aswell, So hopefully that helps throughout the travels. My father is Vietnamese however I was born and raised in a small country hick town so my Vietnamese is in no way fluent as I have discovered. =p

Also When i return from this trip will commence full time work and a hectic schedule so really looking forward to letting loose and making the most of it :)

So PM me if interested. This is my first solo trip and I don't want to be a loner the whole time haha I like many others have Facebook, so for those genuinely interested...

Regards

PS: I'm not backpacking but am still willing to form up with those that are for day trips or as drinking buddies. I've read about this cultural living tour were they take you out to the sticks and you mingle live/ eat like the locals, which I don't mind if anyones keen. Does anybody know more or could provide personal experience regarding these types of tours?

Hello

Are you planning on visiting all of Vietnam or just part of it? I plan on spending two weeks in Vietnam travelling from north to south in June or July, and would love to meet up with some fellow travellers.

Hey qwokki and Sandra,

I plan on being in HCMC from June 11 to 25 :) Gonna be solo this time round too but staying with family. Have been quite a few times already and mainly use VN and USA as my release and to get loose. (I was there last Dec10-Jan11)

I'm a big clubber (not a fan of tours/ sight-seeing, not that there's anything wrong with them) so lemme know if you want any tips as to the better clubs in HCMC or if you wanna meet up. Don't dabble in any of the hard stuff though, more-so to dance the night away and have a good time

Looking to branch out this time to other clubbing hot-spots like Da Nang and Nha Trang as well as lapping it up at some beaches/ resorts (can't stand winter in Sydney). Speak pretty good viet and my english isn't too bad either so got the language thing covered, just hope the rain holds up for me (have only ever been in Dec/Jan previously and weather during this time is perfect).

If you've got any q's or want tips shoot me an email :)

Hi everyone, I plan on going vietnam around 22nd june for 3 weeks. Will be backpacking alone for the first time so I'm quite apprehensive. And also my time will be quite flexible so let me know more about your plans and see if we can travel on some days together.

Hey all, Took awhile but there's some replies now....

I've also added Phnom Penh, Cambodia as the first stretch of my travel plans now and plan to fly from Phnom Penh to Saigon on the 15th.

So If anyone is also in PP.

Based on what I've read in the replies I'm thinking we should all hit up a restaurant/pub one night among those travelers interested. Somewhere in District 1 or 3 maybe. I don't know where for now but I'll see if we can get some interest going.

There's a few places I've read up on in regards to eating and nightlife that sound and look pretty mint.

Sounds good Jamie, hopefully we can squeeze something in before I leave VN on 25th.

These sites are pretty good also in terms of what's happening/ events in VN http://anyarena.com/en/ and http://www.vnclubbersguide.com.vn/pages/en/home.html (a lot of the places are too pretentious for my liking though so need to suss it out a bit more).
