Hi guys, i'm considering doing SE Asia (no real plans as you can tell!) from mid Feb till early April. Doing it alone and on a budget as most of you have said too! I'm 20, female and from Leicester.. anyone around at this time to share this small adventure with?! x

Hey Ther KiSimpson..
i will be around.. where in SE asia you thinking? .. any particular places you want to go?.. I am planning to go to Thailand first, then vietnam, cambodia, laos, etc.. in no particular order..

No idea at the moment, this is all completely a spur of the moment thing :/ I'd like to do as much as possible but without cramming too much in, as i intend to come back at some point next year if i enjoy it..

Those four places pretty much make up my list, but i'm not sure how much i can do in 8 weeks!

I'll be flying in and out of BKK so it'll need to be a round trip!

What dates are you there from/till? x

i am arriving in BKK on the 24th Jan.. and leave from Singapore on 9th July..So there for 5 and half months..

I will have to make my way down to singapore at some point.. but dont really know what route i am doing..

when did you book your flights then? Mine is kid of a spur of the moment thing too.. flights only been booked for about 4 weeks.. x

KiSimpson i see you are from leicester! Same here no wonder we want to get out of there. Awful place.

I am flying to Bangkok on the 15th March but i have a connecting flight to Krabi straight away as i have been to Bangkok before. Krabi is a good place to stop as its really close to Koh samui, phuket and the phi phi isles. So there is plenty to see and do.

I am only in thailand for 2 weeks and have a connecting flight to Perth on the 31st March.

If you need any info let us know i am sure i can help a fellow Lesta! out.:)

Yayyy! Getting more excited by the day :D I am indeed from Leicester, it's not so bad but i can't wait to leave for a while!

I think i win in the 'spur of the moment' stakes - my flight isn't booked yet as i only got the confirmation of time off work on Thursday! Hehe. Definitely definitely going though, even if it's for a slightly shorter time due to running out of funds!
I've found the flight that i want but it's with Air Asia, has anyone heard flown with them before?! Or know anyone who has?

This is by far the craiest thing i've done. Ever.

Haha, ok kiSimpson... You win!! Very last minute. Best way to be!!!

Can't help you with air Asia I'm afraid, I am sure it won't be that bad.. I would advise against air India, as a couple of my friends have flown with them.. They didn't appreciate the smell of curry I the early hours of the morning!

Is the air Asia one direct?
