Hi! I’ve just booked Thailand West Hopper on the 9th November – so maybe see you around there:)
Hi, I’ve booked the Thailand West Hopper Tour as of 6th, too! :-) I’m pretty sure we gonna see each other! :-)
Thats excellent! are you travelling already or was this spontaneous. For me it was for my birthday which will be on the 11th of November!
Although I’m almost certain this is the date i want to leave i was looking at the 9th of november too!
Are you all travelling by yourself. I will be on my own :)
I’ll be travelling by myself! Which date have you booked? It was a spontaneous decision for me :) I’ve always wanted to travel but was nervous about doing it on my own. I have holiday that I need to take from work so just decided to go for it!
Would be great to see either of you there, I’m hoping to make some new friends aswell as travel :)
Hey there! :-) My travel dates are already final. My journey will start in Bangkok, where I will stay for three days. Then I fly to Phuket and will arrive there one day prior to the first group meeting on 6th November. I’m already excited about this adventure! :-) It’s not the first time I’m doing such a tour. It always has been great fun so far! :-) Is Thailand the only destination or are you travelling upon the tour end somewhere else?
Just booked the Thailand West Hopper tour as well! First time in Thailand so I’m really excited about it!
My journey also starts in Bangkok a couple of days before meeting everyone in Phuket!
Cant wait! ;)
Hey, its great to know people who are already going! :)
I’ve booked mine for the 6th of october however I’m flying in the day before to Phuket (5th) and will start the tour but then I will do Bangkok for 2-3 days after just to wind down and then head back home!
This is my first time on Contiki and doing solo travel but I’m half excited and half scared. Ill start small and if i enjoy it I will endeavour to do other places like Europe!
You guys can give me tips on what to do in Bangkok for a head start!
Hi Bluebear! I’m thinking about doing this tour as well!! And then do the East hopper tour straight after. Are you going on the 6th of october or november? Would love to see you there :)
Hi Misstravelbug, I booked teh Nov 06 tour…hope to see you there ! :)
i have booked and locked in the 6th november so should see you there Alberto.
Misstravelbug you should join the adventure ! not sure that the East Hopper is available in November but I’m travelling to Bangkok for a chill out and experience for 4 nights :)
I’m thinking about doing this trip October or November…they just told me that last day for Thai East Hopper is Sept. 21 because it’s monsoon season
Hey guys i’ve booked the tour for nov 6th! I’m so excited!! Haven’t organised flights yet but i’ll probably fly in a few days before the tour starts. I’ll be in phuket town :)
Sweeeet, i’ll see you there too alberto !
Hey Matt, if you are really keen on exploring the east islands you can definitely organize a few day tours yourself which would be a lot cheaper too.
I’ll be heading to bangkok after the tour — hey bluebear I might tag along if you don’t mind :)
Anyone interested in going to chiang mai for some jungle trekking and tigers? Heard it’s more or less the ‘real’ thailand as opposed to phuket.
Sorry for being absent recently, but I was on vacation and didn’t have access to my emails regularly.
Obviously the group going on the Thailand West Hopper Tour is growing. That’s great! :-)
I’ll arrive in Phuket one day prior to our first group meeting.
Looking forward to seeing you all there! :-)
yay things are starting to pick up for our tour hahah!
So i am flying in the night before and staying at the designated Contiki “night before” hotel so if anyone has signed up for that let me know and we can get to know each other before we meet the rest of the crew!
and after the tour I’m flying out that day to Bangkok for 4 nights just to explore a little further ! I thought of staying a bit longer but booked the flights using best price and to make sure i had put money so there was no backing out on this solo adventure haha! But maybe staying at Lub D I think the place is called – its for backpackers!
What is everyone else’s agenda. I feel like i should be booking so many other adventures when this one hasn’t even begun.
Hi everyone! Great to see that the tour is starting to get booked! Counting the days!!! ;)
Hey everybody, I hope you are doing well and already prepared for our common adventure! ;-) Any hints I have to consider before my departure and in preparation for my trip? Looking forward to seeing you soon! Take care, Tanja
