    I am wanting to broaden my horizons and se the world a little, so in September I am hoping to travel to China .. The problem is, I'm going alone!

    I was searching Google for people who travel alone, and I came across the greatness of hostels. The only thing that bothers me with travelling alone is getting lonely, but I have been reading that many people travel alone, and meet friends in hostels and other places where travelers hang out.

    Is it easy to make friends? & not just for a quick conversation, I mean people who will join you in seeing the sights, and going out at night.

    Anyone here done any backpacking?

    You don't have any friend till now? Why?

    Maybe it's easy to make friends, maybe is not. Depends on you

    Oh yea, I have tons of friends now, at home, but none who are as open minded as me. They are always down for a drink at the pub, but never down for traveling the world!

    I would prefer to travel alone anyway, but i'm just worried about not making new friends while i'm there.

    Maybe you could check out hobotraveler.com -Andy has been wandering the globe for about 13 years or so. Very interesting person, and he has tons of practical tips on exactly what you're planning to do.

    There are people around here with experience living and traveling in China like GoldenGlovez, you might want to contact him. There is also Ben (makemoneyonlinewithseo.com blog owner) who is currently doing some traveling in Asia.
    Awesome initiative, I like traveling, hiking & trekking too and maybe some day I will reach China...until then South America is my objective :)
