Question

Thai Island Hopper East 08 Sep 2012

20 Jun 2012 Claudz asked

Hey guys!
Is there anyone out there doing the Thai Island Hopper East tour?
I am doing this alone, and wanting to know who my travel buddies are... I am really excited, and nervous all at the same time!
As mentioned before, I will be doing this alone, and this will also be my 1st international trip EVER!
Just FYI, I am from South Africa, would be awesome to meet peeps from all over!

    Hi there!

    Thats soooo awesome! I actually cannot wait to get out of SA and into paradise for a bit (not to mention a whole new look at partying), hehe!

    Well I am from Cape Town, will be flying with Qatar Airlines with a stop at Jhb via Doha via Bangkok… So its quite a bit of travelling for me, but I dont mind it at all – plus they offer the best prices.

    It will be my first international trip, hopefully the 1st of many to come.

    Which airline are you looking at using?

    Cool stuff. Did u book already? Im trying to go on one with a full moon party. i hear that is the ultimate.

    i think i might fly emirates, but will shop around a bit. did you book directly with airline.

    I also wanted to get myself on a full moon, or at least a half moon party… but I had to work around my work schedule… which doesnt fall around that time :(…

    I booked directly with Contiki, and they booked it for me… flights and everything… I got another quote from a travel agency, but they price was like R5000 than what I was quoted by Contiki.

    Haha – looks like its all South Africans on this tour. Myself and my boyfriend are on this and hopefully a friend from the UK. Join the group on meetups if you have booked on this tour :)

    Just to be different, I’m on this tour and I’m from Australia :) Claudz, I think you’ve picked a fabulous place for first overseas trip!
    I’m also travelling alone, I look forward to meeting you!
