Hey everybody,
Anybody in the koh samui area around the 29th March? I am a 26 year old girl travelling alone, and a little nervous about doing so after hearing horror stories about asia! I'm hoping to travel around thailand for around 2 months (the 60 days I have on my visa) before heading over to bali for 3-4 weeks and then back to thailand until mid july! Anybody there around that time get in touch! Would love some company and reassurance!

Sian

Hi Katie! Oh cool! Maybe will bump into you in koh samui?! I'm hoping to go to bali around the end of may so probably not! Are you in Thailand earlier than the 21st? I'm actually flying to phuket on Monday and will be there for a week but then am flying to cambodia for 3 weeks and meeting a friend before coming back to thailand. I've just got back from oz, you will have a great time there! Where abouts are you going?

Hey Sian, I'm going to Bali around 3rd June and will stay there depending on how much I like it, probably about 4 weeks! Want to go to Lombok, Gili Islands (looks amazing) etc. Will be spending a year in Australia after and plan to arrive in Brisbane sometime in July so we could be in Bali around the same time? :) Have travelled Asia before but haven't been to Bali so seems like a good place to go before Oz, James.

Katie: Yeh, it's worth it if it settles your mind before you go but you will make lots of friends easily I'm sure and hear about places to go etc through them :-) Yeah I travelled with greyhound, they were fab :-) made everything so easy! How long are you in oz for? and are you on a tourist visa? East coast? or everywhere? 6k prob did me for 2 months or so but I didn't really skimp!

Hi james, the time you go to bali is around the time I will be there :-) so could be good to meet up! So jealous of you both going to oz! I had a great time there!

Are you both on facebook? If so send me your profile links and I will add you! Easier to chat on there :-)
