Howdy! I'm planning gapyear beginning Oct / Nov this year, starting in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, then Aus & NZ. First stop, Bangkok. It would be great to meet a few people heading in the same direction at the same time, or anyone going just before that can shed some light on where to go and what to do. Cheers, J.
Hey I'm going those places in Asia but Malaysia as well in October then Australia in December flying into Melbourne then Sydney for NYE!
Hey, I'm basically doing the same as you apart from I'll be staying in Oz to work before I carry on traveling..
Oh just noticed how long ago you posted this! Have you booked your flights by now then? I'm looking at getting to Bangkok around the 10th October, leaving Singapore to Melbourne around 10th December and spending NYE in Sydney.. have you made loads of plans now, booked hostels, got an idea of your route etc? x
I'm headed to Thailand in October as well. I'll be in Bangkok most of the time, but am hoping to take a train south to Phi Phi Island, maybe even to Penang. I used to live in Thailand and speak fluent Thai. Maybe some of us could meet up.
Hey, I'm planning the same thing, but stopping in Dubai on the way to Thailand and want to stay in Oz for a year.
Daniella have you booked your flights? Wondering which airline you found cheapest?
Hey, yeh we be good to meet up ..
I haven't booked anything yet but I've seen the flights I'm thinking of getting just on STA travel to be honest, I'm under 26 so they offer discount. Where would you be flying from and when? I'm also looking to stay in Oz for a least a year working! x
Yeh i think I'll go STA as well. I'm going from London on the 14th Oct and straight to Dubai for a few days and then onto Thailand around the 17th. The rest I'll just book as I go. But defiantly need to be in Sydney for new years.
What about you?
Hey sorry for the late reply, I haven't had chance to get on the computer been so busy as I fly to ibiza tomorow!
I'm thinking bascially the same! Booking base hostel in sydney I think as I've been chatting to some other people going there.. Have you booked your flights now? I was thinking of booking them next Tuesday when I'm back from ibiza! There;s a lot of people I know going on the 14th of october now so tempted to delay it till then myself so I'm getting there the same time as other people! Are you traveling alone? Have you booked a hostel in Bangkok for the first few nights?
Have you got fb cause would be easier to chat on there? x
That's ok, I've only just got back from Turkey myself!!
No haven't booked anything yet, but I've just handed in my notice at work (had to give 3 months), so I'm going to look at flights this weekend. I've been looking at hostels in Thailand and best one I found was the Saphaipae Hostel, and it's fairly cheap about £10 a night, so will probably book that for the first couple nights.
Yeh I'm travelling alone, but I've got a few friends in Oz I will meet up with when I get there. How about you?
Yeh add me on fb, just search for Erkan Ruso I'll be the only one that comes up!
