    Woohoo! Was starting to think I was going on my own! I’m from the UK. Unfortuantely not going anywhere else due to work but still can’t wait for this tour. Have you done any others before?

    Nope this is my first one, pretty excited though. My friend went on the vietnam one and had a blast! Yourself?

    Nope this is my first one, but I’m pretty excited. A friend just came back from the Vietnam one and said it was a blast. What about yourself?

    I’m in! Coming over from New Zealand on the 17th and staying the first two nights in Bangkok to “acquaint” myself with the culture. And figure out how to cross roads over there…I’m told they are rather hazardous!

    Anyone else going to be around Bangkok for a pre trip beer or two?

    Does anyone know what visa’s we need to get? I heard that you only need to get one for Vietnam before hand but not sure if this is right?!

  • 6 Jan 2012 Sam & Anth Cole said


    we only have the vietnam visa, the rest you can get when we are out there. i think. It should say in the info pack which im hoping is coming soon :) we are staying at the hotel that the trip starts on for the night before the trip (if that makes any sense!) i’m sure we could get together for a few drinks by the pool :) Andy- we went to bangkok 2010 and the driving was f*cking mental lol. sam & anth

    I got the e-mail for the info-package a while back already. It says you need to do the Vietnam VISA before the trip, but the others we can get when we touchdown, just make sure you have enough passport photos and cash on hand.

    Andy – I’m coming into Thailand the day before the trip and am gonna stay at the hotel we start in. Let’s definitely get together for a drink! I’m actually going to be in Auckland for a bit on Jan 25th, maybe pre-pre-trip drink? :D

    Thanks for your help I’ll make sure I get the Vietnam visa sorted out and hopefully the info pack will come soon :-)

    I get into Bangkok on the 18th so will see some of you there :-)

    Sweet, sounds like enough people to arrange a good drink on the 18th. I too am staying at the Viengtai Hotel (just changed my booking to make it easier!)

    Ken I’ll message you my NZ cell number. Always up for a drink in the sun.

    Wow, only a week till it starts!! Michelle had a good thought that it would be heaps easier if there was a Facebook group that we could all go in to suss meeting up for a drink. So here one is…

    I’ll be there too! Sarah from New Zealand :) Arriving at the airport at 9.30pm. We also have the whole next day to hang out before the tour starts, haven’t decided what I want to see in Bangkok yet.
