This thread is marked as being about Vietnam

Hi Guys!

Am planning my dream trip at the moment and am looking for someone or a few people to join me on the Cambodia/Vietnam leg of my trip.

Will be arriving in Siem Reap on the 25th (ish) August '13 and the plan so far is to stay there for 2 weeks, do a bit of teaching/helping out where I can/ visiting the temples. I then plan to go overland through to Vietnam and travel the whole length of the country by train to Hanoi, stopping by at a few places on the way. I am so set on doing this, but being a solo female traveler am slightly hesitant about doing it alone.
I'm easy going, very positive and smiley, with a fair amount of traveling experience, 24yo from the UK.
Would love for someone to join me, so let me know if you want in!

Hi Karina,

I would love to join you on your trip, I really want to go travelling but my friends are not interested at all, I'm a female from the UK and i'm 22! Thanks

Hi Ella :)
Amazing! Exactly the same as me! Have been begging all my friends to join me but no one seems interested! Is this the kind of time you plan on traveling?
From Hanoi, I'm then going to fly to Sydney and spend a year on a WHV, so if you have similar plans can go on and do that with me too???

Where in the UK are you from? Are you on facebook?
:) x

Would really be interested in doing this too! Been putting it off as I wasn't too keen on traveling alone either. Was also looking at a WHV in aus but haven't got a clue how to go about getting one etc so would really appreciate any info you might have!

Let me know if you're interested in getting a group together as I'm deff up for it. I'm a female 23 from london :)

Hey Xenia

That would be awesome.
I did a year in NZ a couple of years ago, am assuming it's the same kinda deal... When I did that I got a starter pack from STA travel and they helped me sort out my visa. Would be alot cheaper doing it on your own though I found out later! Think it's about £235 for one now.

Would you be up for joining in on the Cambodia/Vietnam bit too?

Such a relief that there are others wanting to do this! Was so worried about going it alone!
Def up for getting a little group together too! :)

Ah okay thanks! Will look into doing it myself then, Yeah I'm up for Cambodia/Vietnam too :)

I know, I've been trying to plan this for ages but had no luck roping any friends to come along with me so you're deffo not alone there! Where abouts in the UK you from?
