So, this is my first trip to thailand and I'm doing it alone… 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
This site is OK for general Thailand:
Hi I'm going to Thailand on the 21st of April on my own for a month I'm planning to go to the full moon party ... oh yes
Sounds sweet! Where abouts will you be heading?
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.
Ill be heading to hiang mai , koh tao , koh samui, koh phangan , bangkok, ,maybe phuket, Also cambodia while I'm at it I might aswell. Whats your plans ?
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!
