Hi there,

I'm Lauren, 27yo. I'll be alone in Vietnam from the 6th of March when my bf goes home. I'll have been there for 6 weeks at this point and will be in HCMC "dropping off" the bf at the airport to make sure he finds his way/flight etc... He's lost without me So if there's anyone else around HCMC at this time who would like to meet, I'd REALLY appreciate it!
I'm not entirely sure of where I'll want to go from there, I'll have covered most of Vietnam up to Hue, no plans to go north/Hanoi as going away for nice weather, something I seriously lack coming from England! So I'll be going back to a few of the areas I enjoyed the most! But I'll be very open to ideas. My fella isn't into national parks/nature, so someone who would enjoy waterfalls, scenery and animals would be good! I believe Cat Tien National Park is a nice location, so maybe there? But as I said, I'll be alone and would be grateful for company no matter where I go!
If you can offer some company and some party time, let me know Preferably no single males but fine as part of a group! Also would be great to share a room and split costs, every penny counts! This is my fb account, feel free to add me

Hi Lauren,I'm Cris from Italy
I'm goin to book my flight in the next few days.Destination : Vietnam,from the 7th to the 23rd I guess,still to take the final decision.
My fiancè will remain at home,unfortunately she cannot travel at this time of the season (then the truth is she really doesn't like this kind of journeys,she prefers northern destinations like Scotland Norway and so on)
Anyway, I still don't know if I'll be alone or if one or more friends are goin to join my project.
For sure I want to spend a couple of weeks in total relax,enjoying nature ,people,culture and cuisine ...travelling from south to north but stopping any time is needed if I find something I like.
I love Asia much and I've travelled a lot there in the past,both along with my ex-wife,with some good companions of mine, or alone.In the last 4 years I've visited Malaysia (one of the most wonderful places in the world) twice and Cambodia one time.It's so much I wanted to fly to Vietnam too and finally it seems I've enough time to do it in the next months.

Once I've actually bought the plane I'm goin to plan the travel itself,but as I've told earlier I just want to plan it in general,without too many details.I want to keep this adventure open to any idea while i'm there.
If you want,of course, we can talk about this topic and/or meet in some nice place in Saigon for an happy hour,verifying if we can have some destination in common.

have a nice week end ;)


ps:i've asked your friendship on fb right now
