However, not all travel agents provide similar levels of customer service, so I generally use skyscanner to find the cheapest flight, then print it off and go into STA Travel to take advantage of their price beat promise (they beat any genuine flight price). It's generally only a penny cheaper, but I just feel more comfortable going into STA Travel and speaking to real people, rather than booking online.

If you do decide to book online though, I would recommend consulting They provide reviews of travel agents/airlines (and in fact pretty much everything) written by previous customers, so you can check out the experiences of previous customers before you decide whether you trust the company with your money.

Hi everyone,

I recently decided to go to Thailand for the month of May as well. I have been travelling solo for 5 months now and I am not settling to the loneliness of it. I would much prefer to travel with people. I am also pretty much landing in Bangkok in the beginning of may and then just making it up as I go along.

There seems to be a few people in this forum doing the same thing so why don't we all get together in Bangkok and see what happens next?

And then the rains started. May marks the onset of Thailand's primary monsoon season, and by the end of April you'll be counting the hours till May 1. Pretty much the entire country sees a significant rise in rainfall — some areas more than others — and you can expect most every province to have at least some rain every other day. This isn't good news if you've just arrived, but it makes for a very welcome relief for anyone who was in Thailand in April!

I was there in June july time and it did rain a fair amount but still managed an awesome sun tan! You will find it gets grey and rains for an hour then clears very quick kind of like Jamaica ;)

Hey guys, I'm planning on heading to Thailand and around SE Asia from mid-May to mid-August 2015. I'm 19 years old, female, and looking to have the adventure of a lifetime. I don't want to travel alone, so I'm looking for a travel buddy!
