Your plans seem quite similar to mine, apart from I'm not sure how long I'll be in Thailand for. I'm hoping to be out travelling for 6 months (maybe longer) with similar savings as yourself before I need to find work because of money, ha! In this time, I'm hoping to visit Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam and then it's an open book! I've heard the same about Bangkok & that it's usually best to stay there for 4/5 days before moving on.

I have been told aswell that £5-6k for 6 months out in Thailand, Cambodia, etc is def more than enough! But, I'd like to have a bit extra with me so I don't really need to worry.[/quote]

Yeah definitley, I've heard the same a grand a month is more than enough...so we should be fine :) yeah I really don't fancy going to Bangkok for long..want to go to some of the nice islands.. hit the full moon parties up!! Do you want to go to Oz or anything? Vietnam or Cambodia doesn't float my boat i dont know why !! I really want to book it soon, need to sort my life out!! Have you booked anything yet?

Hiya liz me and my boyfriend are doing the same round the world trip we are leaving London on september 1st this year to bangkok, doing Thailand for three months before heading to Australia on November 29th for another 3months(we have bought a greyhound bus ticket that takes us all along the east coast ) before doing new Zealand, if you are any place at the same time would be fantastic to meet up with you! How far are you with your plans? Is anything booked yet? By the way I'm Alysha x

I need to sort mine out too . I've not booked anything yet, I've been a bit hesitant because of going out alone but I think I really just need to take the plunge! :). I've done a bit of research and asked a few friends that have been out last year and in the past and it seems that you wil really struggle to spend £1k a month out there as you can rent luxury apartments for about 20000BHT per month which is only £400 and food and drink is ridiculously cheap! I was thinking about booking into a hotel for a few days in Bangkok and then sorting myself out once there (It looks like 4* hotels are only £40-£50 a night!) I've not really thought about Australia, but TBH after Thailand, it is an open book in terms of plans so it could be an option :).

Oh my goshh.. This is exactly what I wanted to do. But alas all my friends have no money and I was somewhat worried about going on my own! When do you plan on going Liz? I have been to Australia before but I need to go back... weather is too good and it was immense!! And Thailand is a definite.. my friend went last year and said it was really cheap and I must admit i'm getting pretty jealous of the full moon pictures... whilst it's raining over here! xx

Hey Linz!!! Exactly the same...none of my friends are able to do it tied down with jobs no money boyfriends etc....we should do it while we can :D Well the RTW flight is Thailand-Oz-I think New Zealand then LA... so I was thinking of going to Thailand October time..for a month or two...then go to Sydney for New Year as a girl i know is flying out there cause she's been travelling so shes meeting up with some friends..so she said i can go meet her so im not alone on NYE (cause that would be really bad times haha) obviously if things go different it doesn't matter me not meeting her...so i would go to Oz for perhaps couple of months aswell i want to go all in all for 6 months but i don't want to be tied down to flights and dates i sort of want to go with the flow....but there the destinations i want too go.. i know same im sat at work depressed over England need to get out of here asap!! As you can see a couple of people in this forum r doing similiar thing and another boy who im messaging on here is doing the same thing so like i said we could all perhaps have a chat and stay in contact and book it what ya think?

Hey Guys,

I'm doing pretty much the same route... Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia (maybe more) and then Australia.

At the moment i'm planning to leave early September and going alone, how much money is everyone taking? and when is everyone planning on leaving?

Would be great to have people to meet up with.
