Still kinda new to this but thought I'd update as my plans have changed.
I'm a 21 year old male.
I'm flying into Bangkok January 6th 2013. Looking to travel south through Thailand and back north through the surrounding, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos.
Looking to stay for around 4-6 months.
Anybody whose around SE Asia at the same time give me a shout as I'm going alone, it'd be great to meet anyone.
anyone whose been and could offer some advice it'd be greatly appreciated.
I'm flying into Bangkok slightly later than you - on 19th Jan. Doing the Thai Intro for the first week which will see me down south for the full moon party on 26th Jan.
I'm a 26 year old female.
I'm traveling around similar to you (including Malaysia) for 5 1/2 months - definitely up for meeting up with people, getting to know people before I get there.
I'm from Indonesia and planned to visit Malaysia on the next February.
If you have some spare time, please put visiting Indonesia on your trip list.
I also suggest you to visit Boracay Island in the Philippines. You will definitely enjoy this island paradise.
i am a 26 year old female traveling to bangkok on 03rd Dec travelling for 6 months round Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines and borneo

My names Beth im 18.
Im flying to Malaysia on January 6th to volunteer with orangutans for 2 months; but after this I am flying to Ho chi Minh City - Vietnam on the 3rd March to do an 8 week trip.
After possibly spending a couple of days at the Mekong Delta, I plan to travel North through Vietnam to Hanoi and Halong Bay.
I then plan to head West into Northern Laos, down past vang vieng and other popular spots in Laos into Cambodia to visit Phomn Penh and Angkor Wat then head back to Bangkok to fly to India on the 28th April.
This is just a vague idea of a route and may change dependant on how much time I have.
If you're around Vietnam anytime in March let me know your plans
It would be awesome to meet you around end of March. I was wondering where at you will hangout about that time ?
