hiee everyone.. im a 24 male from pakistan.. planning on a solo trip to thailand for new years. i would love some suggestions regarding how i should plan my trip and where should i stay.. my tentative plan says that i'll reach bangkok on 24th dec .. stay for 3 nights.. leave for samui on 27th.. stay in chewang KC over water villas for 3 nights.. then i plan to go to koh phangan for full moon on 30th dec.. stay there till 2nd dec.. if i'd still have some energy to party more i'll grab a ferry or some cheap way possible to reach phuket.. where i'll stay for 2 nights and then back home on 4th 5th janruary.
i'd like to have suggesstions esp regarding how should i stay in phangan?. i'd really like some sugesstions from other solo travellers who have been there on new years or something.. and where should i stay? ive chalked out this much that no matter what i have to stay in haad rin area.. but the hotels and hostels are showing some really expensive rates online on different sites.. some of my friends who have been to normal full moon parties suggest that i should take a chance and go there n then see my options because according to them they found reasonable hostels as cheap as 500 800 baht per night and they stayed there for 3 nights.. for now the cheapest hostels that im able to find are giving me 2500 baht per night for one bed in shared dormitory and they also enforce a minimum stay of 5 nights.. any valuable suggestions are welcome.
lastly i'd love if someone from any part of the world would want to join me for the trip.. we can share the costs and that would be feasible for both of us.. and i promise to be a nice company... looking forward to your responses..
