Hey there, my name's Natalie, I'm also booked on this trip and very excited to meet others who I'll be travelling with :D

Btw. I'll be arriving in Bangkok early on 28th (I think around 7ish), so if anybody's going to be there early too maybe we can meet up!
And I'm planning to extend my stay in Singapore at the end of the trip for two more nights, so if anybody wants to join, you're more than welcome :)

Hey All, My name's Brian.. I'm pretty pumped to meet everyone!

Natalie, I'll be arriving on the 28th also, around 10 ish. Have you picked a hostel yet? I'm down for meeting up and starting the party early!! lol

I'm also staying after the tour (til the 19th) and plan on going surfing in Bali. If Singapore's cool might stick around there for an extra day or two... haven't really planned the end of the trip, just gonna roll with it...

Hey Brian,
um, picked a hostel? What for? Thought we're gonna meet the others at the Bangkok Center Hotel (at least it says that in the tour details I found..) ?
Anything special you wanna do/see on the first day in Bangkok? - except for the partying :wink:

I was planning to extend my trip and go to Bali for some first surfing attempts at first, too, but then I couldn't get any more time off from work :roll: so I decided to just stay in Singapore two more days. I already pre-booked a Hostel there (Wink-Hostel)..

My flight arrives in Bangkok 11ish, so I think I'd be at the hotel (yes, it is pre-booked for the night of the 28th I believe) around 12.30ish. I'd love to go see some of the city with people for a few hours before we meet up with everyone else on the trip :)

I am also staying on in Singapore, staying with family friends who happen to live there :) Bali sounds pretty awesome though, it's on my bucket list!

Where are you from and how old are you? I'm 18 (probably going to be the youngest by a bit!) and Im Australian, but I am currently living in London. In September time I will be doing some volunteer work in Cambodia, so I'm going on this trip as a bit of a holiday while I am away.

Hey charlotte,

I'm already 29 - that's probably kind of really old to you guess :) and I'm from Germany..
Sounds like an interesting life you have there, being Australian, living in the UK and doing some work in Cambodia!

Have you been to Asia before?

Hi All,

My name's Lauren, I'll be going on the Indochina discovery tour starting on the 28th from the same hotel as you - so I'm sure we'll all cross paths! :D I'm not sure if we travel together and then split up along the way or if we will be going in two completely separate directions? Either way, excited to meet everyone! :)

Katja, I arrive in Bangkok a little earlier than you, but since I believe Bangkok at seven in the morning is not that spectacular I might just wait up on you at the airport, so we can "start" the trip together?

Danny, do you already know where you'll be staying at in Singapore?

As this tour is my first backpacking tour and also my first time in Asia, I'm not sure what to pack. Any good advice for me?

Hey guys! Not long now ... looking forward to meeting everyone.

Hi i'm Tom heading out from Wales. I'll be getting into Bangkok on the Friday (27th) about 1pm so Katya / Charlotte it would be great to meet up early for an explore, i've booked into the same hotel for the Friday night.

Don't know how easy it would be to meet up?

Ah I got my days mixed up. I'm flying in Saturday the 28th. Good job I checked instead of being at the airport at the wrong time :) its seems like we have a pretty diverse group of people from different places.

Adding to the mix, I use to live in Hong Kong so I have travelled around Asia, but I was younger and not with a backpack. I know how to bargain Asian style though, so that's one advantage :)

Packing wise - pack everything you think you need, unpack it and repack a third is some advice from some travellers I've met. Pack clothes you can mix and match so you feel like you have more stuff. It's the wet season at the moment, so rainy, humid and hot.

The pack says we "officially" meet the person (CEO?) at 6pm in the hotel. If all else fails we can use this forum to let people know we are there if they want to go exploring.
