Hi everyone,
Just thought i'd introduce myself on the board...I'm a 21 year old student from the UK, travelling round Thailand for a bit this summer on my own...nerve-racking but can't wait to go!

So, um...If anyone whos reading this has got any amusing stories from their travels they want to share with me, feel free to comment!
Especially those who have travelled on their lonesome!

Cheers,
Kelly

Hi Kelly,

Your going to have a great time!

I travelled on my own all last year. Of all the places I've been I found Thailand probably the easiest to meet people, and the best fun. Obviously, don't forget the usual safety/security stuff like not wandering alone at night, keeping close eye on your drinks etc. But as long as you look after yourself you shouldn't worry.

One of my favourite places was Lonely Beach on Ko Chang (quite large island near the Cambodian border). Lonely was exactly what it wasn't! I liked it because it was quite small and friendly, but still fun at night. It was small enough so you'd keep seeing the same people, and therefore everyone got talking to each other. Annd the accomodation was cheap as chips.

Enjoy,

Clara
