I am planning trip to SE Asia including Indonesia, and Philippines, it will be budget friendly, I will not stay in those fancy hotels, because I guess I can’t afford, dates are not exact, because I will start my trip actually after my ship contract and it is approximately finishing at October, so I guess I will start around November and it will be 4 month travels, I will discover slowly slowly each country at SE Asia and try to live all adventures, if you love nature, if you love taking photos, and biking and camping, and Bla Bla , come with me, be a buddy to me, you won’t regret:) I am totally fun person, and you can’t imagine how flexible I am , I just love living the moment, anyway see you around, as I say my dates are flexible :)
Hi all, Finalising my trip to explore south east Asia and I am really looking forward to meeting someone who has the same or similar plans. I am female but I do not mind male of female. I am very easy going and quite flexible about my plans. I don't want to go into too much detail here but please DM me if you have similar plans or looking to go to Asia around the same time. I will be happy to move my plans around if we decide to travel together. I am also doing a Trans-Siberia train into China before this trip Thanks T
I have not planned anything definite, but I am looking to travel in the dates indicated. Clearly, my destination is not yet fixed either, possibly somewhere in Asia. Generally, I like culture, architecture, food, nature, which may include some day treks. Also a few days at the beach, depending on the goal, is a nice way to start and/or end a vacation. I would like to sleep in clean, reasonably comfortable places as a general rule, but no rule without an occasional exception and the place need not be fancy. I like to plan ahead, if this makes sense, but can be flexible on the tour as well. Usually, it is more important to me to see a few places intensively, rather than packing a tour full to see as much as possible. You should be comfortable travelling with a gay male.

Short travel stories from Laos
South East Asia is well known for it’s sometimes difficult to border crossings, especially by land. My experience travelling from Dien Bien Phi, Vietnam to Luang Prabang, Laos didn’t have any controversial payments to authorities (the temperature “health check” was something encountered leaving Laos) but it did have its memorable moments – like a slow boat taking on water and almost sinking!
Leaving Dien Bien Phu in the wee hours of the morning gave beautiful sunrise views of the surrounding mountains, it wasn’t too long of a ride until the border checkpoint. After applying for the visa on arrival and swapping money over the border (surprisingly a decent exchange rate) we learnt two of our fellow passengers hard been denied exiting Vietnam, apparently due to them having an E-Visa.
From here, a four-hour slow boat ride gets you within a couple hours by another bus away from Luang Prabang. Boarding this narrow longtail boat were 9 tourists with large packs and about the same number of locals with household appliances – think TVs and blenders. But we shared a boat and made impromptu stops at the side of an overgrown jungle none the less to let people disembark and pick up new passengers.
You know there’s a real issue when locals have a sense of danger in their voice. When all locals began shouting at the driver in Lao, something was visibly wrong. The boat had begun to take on water and quickly. With the locals bailing the water out from beneath our feet the vibe turned into nervous stares around the boat, trying to spot any leak.
Around 3 hours into the cramped conditions of this boat, not being able to have a bathroom break or even walk around, the sun’s rays began to wear us all down, and my group of three decided to stop off at one of the smallest towns I’ve ever visited – Muang Ngoy. Before continuing on to Luang Prabang by another boat and bus.
