ATRM130306 : Bangkok to Singapore - 06 April 2013

Postby mcmuffin » Mon Nov 05, 2012 10:24 am

Hi there,

Me and my shiny new husband are on the above tour. Its our first time back packing and are both so excited :D . We arrive in Bangkok a few days before the tour sets off, and would love to hear from anybody else travelling at the same time. :)

Thanks

Hi Valerie and Carrie

We arrive on the Tuesday and are planning on travelling up to Chiang Mia for a couple of days before the tour starts. 7 weeks tomorrow we fly out - cant believe how quickly it has come round. :D

Are you all set and have either of you looked in to Malaria tablets and or jags required?

Are you both travelling with friends/partners or yourself?

Hi all,

Just booked today! I'm not going to get into Bangkok untill the Saturday evening though so will probably miss the welcome meeting.

Looking forward to meeting you all,
Tom

Hi all,

as I'm travelling on my own I was hoping that others would arrive in Bangkok before the trip starts.
I already bought the Malaria drugs (Malarone) and got some injections. Where are you all from? I'm from Germany =)
Looking forward to hear from you all :)

I'm from the UK.

I've had quite a few jabs before but need to see if I need any others again. What jabs did you all get? I'm not sure if Malaria tablets are needed as I don't think we are going through any high risk areas but I'll see what the doctor says.

I got Hepatitis A + B, Typhus and revaccination of Tetanus & Diphterie.
Concerning Malaria, I do not believe that we will need any tablets but it is recommended to have them as an emergency treatment (stand-by).

Hi all,
I am doing the Northern Thailand Experience before this tour so will be returning to Bangkok on the morning of the 6th. I have only just started looking into vaccines but should hopefully be getting them soon. I am also travelling alone and am coming from Scotland.

Looking forward to meeting you all,

I have a 75 litre rucksack (although you can get away with a much smaller one) and then I'l have a small backpack for the day.
