You should be pretty ok without one, but I like to take one just in case.... if you really decide on a whim to go camping, it's nice to have something to sleep in. Then again, a simple sleeping sheet would do the trick too and can be picked up in Thailand for a nice price...

You can find just about anything you need when you're there. It's so much easier to pack as lightly as possible, especially when everything costs so much less there. Take a sheet (folded in half and sewn around the edges) to crawl inside, but a lot of it depends on where you're going. If you're going to be in the mountains, make sure you have some warmer clothing for the nights, but otherwise, you really won't need a sleeping bag.

If I were you, I wouldnt take a sleeping bag...they tend to be bulky. If you are backpacking, then I would assume you will be heading to Khao San can find EVERYTHING there and much cheaper than in your home country.

The hostals in Thailand (at least the ones I stayed at $10-15 a night), provide sheets and covers. And everything was pretty clean too...

If you are going hiking, they also provide everything you need to sleep at night. I did take a small sheet and a pillow case, yes, it was suggested by someone and it did come in pretty handy. The pillow case served as a pillow (I put my small backpack in it) and the small sheet I only used when something did look 100% clean to me (especially during the hike in Chiang Mai). Good luck!
