ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

I was a single in Cambodia and Vietnam and I loved every minute of the trip. The boat on the Mekong was a dream trip. I met single females who traveled alone in both Cambodia and Vietnam. The local people are very friendly and genuine. i would not hesitate to go again alone.

Terry Wall Nov 19, 2014 at 08:59 PM

I'm looking at Cambodia and some other southeast Asian trips. Are there many "single" people that go on these trips? What has been their experience if they have shared a room with someone they don't know? Thanks. Terry
Kathleen Clarke Nov 19, 2014 at 09:11 PM

We had 15 people on our trip. Only one single and it didn't matter. In our free time people just grouped dependingon interests. The boat is different than a hotel so I would not want to share as the rooms are tiny!
Ellin Ifft Nov 20, 2014 at 01:09 AM

I agree with Kathleen. I was the only single not with friends and I always felt included. I prefer to travel solo but as already said the rooms are extremely small and you would be knocking elbows with a stranger. I really enjoy southeast asia and this Mekong River trip was the best yet.
Saralea Altman Nov 20, 2014 at 10:34 AM

We had 17 people on the trip, all of whom were looking forward to the adventures we had. A few singles who paired up and everyone got along beautifully. The staterooms can accommodate 2 , even if they are a little close. this is a great trip and I am so very glad I did it.
Alice Howard Nov 20, 2014 at 11:06 AM

I have done a number of Road Scholar trips as a single (who prefers a room of my own) -- and have always found the programs to be terrific with lots of compatible co-travelers. This is a great trip.

I authorized a payment of $8,100. from my American Express card. Your note says the payment was made on September 24, 2014 - but the transaction has NOT appeared on my account that I can find. Please confirm that the payment was made ???or denied??? Since September, American Express has replaced my original card because of fraud on the account. Please contact me concerning the payment at 828 274-7875

David. This is on a social email site of future and past participants. I suggest you call road scholar. I'm sure they can help you
Edna Alvarez Oct 26, 2014 at 08:41 PM

I agree. This is not an email route to RS but a blast to anyone who has posted on this site.

Joel Houtman Oct 20, 2014 at 07:51 PM

My husband Joel and I are from Grass Valley, CA and will be on Oct 28 trip.

Rebecca Emerick Sep 22, 2014 at 12:15 AM

Hey, anyone arriving in HCM early on the October 6th adventure leaving from SFO? Rebecca
Sharon Genaux Oct 01, 2014 at 02:22 AM

Sid and Sharon Genaux here. We are on a flight out of San Francisco that leaves about 1:00 AM on October 5th.

Mike Young Sep 21, 2014 at 09:34 PM

I'm Mike Young from Honolulu. I'm on the Oct 28 trip. I took a Four day Mekong trip in Laos a few years ago. It was so great that I'm excited to take this longer trip. I'm doing a three week yoga and meditation retreat near Siem Reap before the trip. Anyone else on the Oct 28 trip?

Linda Smith Sep 18, 2014 at 08:52 PM

Was told there were 15 people leaving from the Boston area. Guest I'm the only one. Meeting my friend, Geri when we get to Vietnam.

Linda Smith Sep 16, 2014 at 06:09 PM

Hello, I'm on the Sept 19 trip. Leaving from Boston. Anyone else leaving from Boston Friday?
