ATHV130513: Nothern Hilltribes & Villages - May 13

Postby emankows » Tue Mar 19, 2013 4:19 pm

Hello,

I have booked this trip and I noticed that it is now fully booked! I am from Canada and a travelling alone so I would love to meet a few fellow travellers before the trip. I can't wait till May!

Hi,

Glad to hear that I wont be the only one who is alone! I'm getting really excited but I am still not even close to ready. I have to finish up exams and then I have a week and a half to get ready.

So where are you travelling from?

Yes same! And trying to work out what to take is a nightmare! What clothes are you taking for the trek? And are you taking a sleeping bag or anything?? Don't want to take too much stuff, but want to have the right things!!

I'm travelling from the UK - so very excited to finally get some sunshine!

Are you staying in Thailand afterwards? Or just for this trip?

Packing is so hard! I think I will be taking a couple pairs of shorts (maybe 3 or 4) and a bunch of shirts (6 or 7) and of course a bathing suit. I was gonna bring a ton of socks and underwear so I don't run out before I get the chance to wash them. But I'm doing another tour after this one (Bangkok to bali on a shoestring) and the going to Australia so I need a lot more clothes. As for the sleeping bag, I'm bringing a sleep sheet. It's the best combo between a sleeping bag and not sweating to death!

Are you staying in Thailand or going anywhere else after this trip?

Ahhh a sleep sheet! Hopefully I'll have time to order one before I go! Just struggling to think of what to wear for the trek - not sure how hardcore it'll be! Thinking some loose trousers and walking trainers?!

And I'm heading to Thailand on the 6th May and going to Koh Chang for a week before the tour. Could only get 2 weeks off work, so having to make the most of every minute!!

Do you arrive in Bangkok on the 13th?

From what I know of the weather, I wont be wearing pants during the actual hikes. Being from Canada, I will be melting lol. As for the shoes, I think a good walking shoe would be fine. Something comfortable and broken in.

I arrive in Bangkok on the 13th. I think I land sometime in the mid-morning. Not sure what to do between the time I arrive and the time the group meets.

Sounds sensible!! And I land in Bangkok on the 13th at about 2.15 on a flight from Trat - will you be gone by then? Or do you want to share a cab fare to the starting hotel, dump our stuff and then go exploring?

Just checked, my flight lands at 1030 so I will probably headd over to the hotel. But if you want to meet at the hotel and go exploring I would be okay with that! I think I will have a quick nap and shower when I get there so I wont do much exploring till the afternoon anyway.

Sounds good to me! Hopefully we'll be able to check in and leave our stuff and can go and explore for a couple of hours! So if I land at 2.10 I guess I should hopefully make it to the hotel around 3? Not sure if I'm going to take my phone or anything just yet, so maybe facebook could be the answer and we can recognise eachother!

Getting super excited now - only 11 more sleeps until I go!!

Nice one! Well I've sent you a message there, because you don't seem to have a button to add you as a friend! See you soon!
