Hello!

This is my first post on these forums having just signed up, my name is George I'm 27 and I live in Shoreditch, London.

I've just recently booked my flights to visit Thailand for the first time, I'll be heading out by myself for a month! (13/5-10/6) So I thought I'd explore some forums beforehand to see if any likeminded people are heading out around the same time? Would be great to have people to meet up with whilst out in Thailand!

I've been spending the majority of my time since making the decision, researching online and planning my month away! However I'm also aware that its good not to plan to much and just go with the flow! However it would be great to get some feedback on my proposed plan, all input would be greatly appreciated!

So here it is...

Friday 13th May - Fly from London (Good day for this haha!)
Saturday 14th May - 15 hour stop over in Bahrain (Hoping to be able to leave the airport and have a look around!)
Sunday 15th May - Arrive early AM in Bangkok, plan to spend around five days in Bangkok
Friday 20th May - Head to the gulf coast for around four days specifically for the full moon party on Saturday 21st
Tuesday 24th May - Head over to AKA Thailand (Phuket) for a weeks MMA & Muay Thai training
Tuesday 31st May - Move onto and explore the other west coast islands such as Phi Phi for around four days (My birthday is also on Thu 2nd)
Saturday 4th June - Head up North to explore places such as Chiang Mai and Pai for around five days (Jungle Trekking etc!)
Thursday 9th - Back to Bangkok for one last night before flying home on Friday 10th

Hi George,

I am currently planning my trip to Thailand, so it is great to see other people's planned itineraries!

I'm flying out of LHR on 29th May into Bangkok.

My itinerary is still coming together, and like you said, I don't want to plan a huge amount in advance, but so far I plan to head straight from Bangkok on 30th May to Chiang Mai, where I'll stay until 2nd June. From Chiang Mai I'll move onto Krabi (Ao Nang) and Koh Lanta to explore the islands of Andaman sea. (I see your trip doesn't include a trip to Krabi - if you get a chance to go, I hear that Railay Beach, Krabi is lovely).

I'll be heading back to Bangkok on 9th June (I was there last year for work, so I want to see what I didnt get to see last time) before flying home on Saturday 11th.

Looks like we may both be in Bangkok at the tail end of our trips if you wanted to share stories!

Enjoy your trip!
