Hey people who is going on this tour??

Myself and three of my friends are doing this tour. We are from South Africa and can't wait!! Thought it would be cool to get to know some people before we go!

    My name is Taissa and I have also booked for this trip. I am from Brazil and I am going by myself, so I liked very much the idea to get to know someone before the trip.
    Are you guys planning on going to another part of Thailand after this trip?

    Lets keep in touch!

    Hey Tissa!

    Great to meet you! Yes we are planning on going to Ko Samet and then Bangkok after we finish our Contiki! What are your plans after the Contiki?

    Hi Chris and Taissa! :)
    I’ll be meeting the two of you in October…..i can’t wait to do this!

    I’m Angela from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
    Like Tissa/Taissa (i’m sorry, i’m not sure which is the correct spelling) i’m going by myself.
    I’ll be seeing some other parts of Thailand before and after this West Side tour and will be going to Australia as well. :)

    I’d love to hear from you two so we can meet each other beforehand:

    Take care!!

    Hello Guys looking forward to many late nights and morning pains!!!
    I too come from the RSA, traveling with a group of 4. It’s my first time in Thailand so if you have any tips on how to avoid the lady boys please share hehe.

    Looking forward to meeting you all.

    i’ll be on this tour. By myself and first OS trip!!! from Port Lincoln in South Australia.

  • 16 Aug 2011 SarahP said


    anyone interested in meeting in Bangkok for a few days before the tour?

  • 16 Aug 2011 Angela K said

    Lots of ladies on this trip, means lots of late nights and pains, as Tinie said.
    Natsy, you’re doing the same two trips as me? :)

  • 17 Aug 2011 Natalie said


    I’m only doing this one- I couldn’t work the other trip into my schedule. I was upset, cos it means I have to wait an extra month but oh well- more time to save $$$.

    That’s true Natsy! These trips are pretty costly… But very much worth it!
    SarahP, I’d love to meet but i won’t be staying in Bangkok. I hope it happens someone will meet you there! :)
