Thailand, Loas and Vietnam!!!

Patricia

I leave TOMORROW! I'm so excited and nervous I can barely eat!!! I know it's short notice, but any advice about travelling ALONE would be appreciated!!

Has anyone been to Asia?

I'm travelling with Intrepid. Has anyone been on an Intrepid tour?

I'll update when I get back, or while I'm there if I have time at an internet cafe!
I'll be taking tonnes of pictures!!! :)

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Wow!

Brave girl to go by yourself. That sounds like such an amazing opportunity! I've never been to those places so I can't recommend anything specific, but since you are traveling alone, obviously be extremely cautious, don't wear or bring anything flashy, try to make friends on your tour so you can explore in groups, and split up the location of your cash and credit cards. I'd also take down the information for the Canadian embassy for wherever you are visiting in case you have any problems.

Cautions aside, have an amazing time!!!

Thanks! :)

I'm excited about going alone, but it's also what is making the most nervous! I've been warned by a lot of people about keeping my things close and being careful about who I talk to and where I go. It was even suggested that I put black tape over the brand name on my camera and NOT carry a bag that looks like a camera case! Good ideas that I would never have thought of!!

I'm be careful! But I know it's going to be a great time!

I wish I had the technology to update as I went like you did in Argentina, Ali! That was really cool! I liked reading about your adventure as you went along.

I'll have tonnes of photos when I get back! :)

Thanks :)

I really enjoyed updating my travels. It's fun because then you have it documented forever if you want to look back and remember what it was like. Can't wait to see your pictures. Good luck!!

I'm back!

It was amazing!
Everyone should go to Asia at least once! I want to go back next year and hit the islands in the south of Thailand!

I have photos up on my Facebook. I don't know if you can look at them ... I'm a "fan" on the Chickadvisor Facebook page... :)
