A friend and I are looking into doing Asian Adventures in May 2013. Probably May 19 or May 26 departure. Anyone else signed up? Would like to meet some people signed up for this!! Also looking at some other tour options. Any feedback on this trip?

    I think I’m bringing regular rolling suitcase and overnight carry-on. I’m gonna try to pack as light as possible though..

    I’m Belfast Ireland!
    booking flights back from Hanoi, when is everyone planning on leaving though cause im trying to book flights back!

    Hi Rachel/Ruby! I’m staying in Hanoi until June 14th- so I’m staying 2 extra days after the tour ends. You should stay a few days extra if you can! I don’t know where I’ll stay yet. I’m taking a backpack but I’m realizing it’s a bit big! I’ll have to figure it out.

    I’m from Los Angeles but as of 2 days ago I sold my car, all my possessions, got rid of my apartment, and am traveling for the next year or so- at least thats the plan :) I’ve actually already begun my travels. I’m currently in Dubai and I’ll fly to Bangkok from here. I booked most of my flights myself. Trying to save as much money as possible!

    Can’t wait to meet everyone!!

    I arrive in Bangkok at 8 AM Saturday the 18th. Lauren, hopefully we can meet up Saturday and go explore?! I am also hoping to possibly travel back to Thailand for the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan on June 23rd.

    Hey Whitney! Let’s definitely meet up on the 18th! Those of us who are getting in a day early are planning to go out that night… plans are still TBD I think. All I know for sure is it will be amazing :) Can’t wait!

    And I’ve always wanted to go to the full moon party- that will be amazing. I’m doing a silent meditation retreat outside of Bangkok June 19-30 or I would be tagging along for sure! Can’t wait to meet everyone!
