Hello everyone!

i haven't done this before, so fingers crossed!
I am 21 female from UK, looking for similar age people to go with to Thailand, then Vietnam next summer

Haven't really made any plans yet, so open to suggestions, but vague plan is to go down to South Thailand, relax on the beaches for a bit. Not really looking for a mad party every night though! Then thinking to go back up into Northern Thailand then through Laos to Vietnam, down the coast spending some time here and back to Thailand.

I am flexible with dates, but looking to go early July until mid/late September.

If anyone is interested, or has any good tips let me know!

thanks :)

Tip: Don't go in the rainy season. It does not rain every day but when it does, it can flood down.

December to April, inclusive is the best time to go. You can be on the beach instead of freezing back home, and an extra few weeks costs very little.

Look on a map. Bangkok is a short distance from Siem Reap, Cambodia, where there is Angkor Wat. From Cambodia (Phnom Penh and other places are worth a visit), it is east to Vietnam or north to Laos.

Thanks Cyberia, but I am at university so this is the only time I can go!
Ok thanks, will take a look
