Travel Forums Asia First trip to thailand

So, this is my first trip to thailand and I'm doing it aloneā€¦ It would be pretty sweet to get in touch with anyone who's in the same boat as me and are keen to go to the full moon party, I imagine it could be kind of awkward doing that on your own! any tips/tricks from experienced travellers would be more that appreciated

going alone to thailand is great. just remember that in most (if not all) South East Asian countries, drugs offence is a no no.

Personally I have not experience this, but i heard some says that (especially in FMP) there are many undercover cops that offers you drugs to buy (whether it's canabis/weed/marijuana, mushroom, straight to hard core like heroin), then after you buy it (or consume it), they will arrest you and then extort you money. if you do not pay, you will not get out. so if you are offered, just say no.

other than that, thailand is a beautiful country. I spent 2 months backpacking from north to south.

Thanks Rus1, I've heard quite a bit on that subject! Drugs aren't really my thing so I should be fine!

Sounds like a busy month!! So are I'm just planning on doing Chumphon, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Bangkok maybe Koh Tao but I'm not sure! I've just booked my place for the full moon party from the 15th - 20th!
