Hey Dave and Amy,
As stated I'll be arriving in Bangkok on July 2nd. I have no strict intinerary but plan on going north to Chaing Mai before travelling south and onto the islands! I will most definitely be in Koh Phangan for the full moon party on the 17th also!
I'm more than happy to meet as many likeminded travellers as possible and it would be great to meet up and share some experiences!
ive got a month booked off work from mid july to august and was originally planning to travel around thailand vietnam and maybe cambodia. although ive been told that this is monsoon season n the worst time to go!! has anyone got any suggestions on how humid n wet this season really is?!! im 22 and its my first time travelling so am hoping to meet up with some new people. i will hopefully be arriving into bangkok around 14th july n havent really got any plans straight away except wanting to go to the full moon party. would be great to meet up with anyone whos around then. katie x
well its true dat its monsoon season n considered as da low season but thailand is always fun no matter wot..da rain isnt for da whole day long rather its for an an hour or 2 in a day...den it clears up..almost everything is much cheaper...da hotels,food n shoping..less falang(foreighners)...n many many mosquitos...i havent been to a full moon party before but iv heard itx freakin awesum even in july also...ill be in bkk in july for sumdays..dix time im plannin to c sum places more like chiang mai n koh samaui..phuket n ofcourse koh phangan...if u r interested maybe we meet up dere...take cares n best ov luck!!
Hi Katie! I booked my flights before realising it was monsson season but I have been assured by my relatives who now live over there that it is nothing to worry about and like avrockx said, it only rains for an hour or so.
The full moon party is on July 17th in Koh Phangan so you could well make it.
I plan on heading to Koh Phangan around the 14th/15th to find my bearings prior to the full moon party but would be happy to meet up if you're going to make it there?
I'm going to be in Thailand by the end of June, and am going to get a bus from Chiang Mai to Bangkok on the 15th and from there head to Koh Phangen for the full moon party. Let me know if you want to meet up to travel there together! Afterwards, I wanted to go island hopping or do something beachy for that next week too.
If anyone else is interested in either, let me know!

thanks for all weather advice. i was really unsure about it before but think il stick to my guns n go! it would be great to meet up with you all as il be bricking it when i arrive in bangkok alone!! lol. also im defo up for the full moon party. are you all booking accommodation in advance for it?
itd be cool to meet up with you rosa in bangkok as youll prob be arriving there shortly after i get there n then we could hed to ko phangan n meet romana? also if avrocks there too. how long are you all travelling for?
Yup, timing sounds like it should be right for us to meet up in Bangkok. Not sure yet about accommodation, but should maybe start looking into it.
I'll be traveling for about a week - I have to be back in Chiang Mai on July 24.
Any chance you have facebook? If so shoot me a message and I'll find you and we can be in better touch that way.
Hi, My name is marita,I was thinking of going traveling around california for the summer but thialand would be amazing!I heard it is raining alot in july and august though!! I can leave the end of june/start of july and was hoping to come home the end of august! If ur still looking for a travel buddy,i am 23years old,an intellectual disability nurse,im easygoing,up for exciting adventures and will try almost anything once
I have nothing holding me back this summer as my contract in work is up in end of june so im eager to just get away somewhere hot for the summer
I think Thailand would be amazing and I have heard that in the summer although some parts are raining some parts are still quite sunny,
I am planning to go around South East Asia from the beginning of July to the end of August so if you do fancy going there then let me know,
Hey Marita and Holly!
It's looking like Thailand is going to be a great trip for summer adventures! Looks like we'll all be around at the same time so would be good to meet up and share some travelling experiences!
Have you both booked up yet? I'm now counting down the weeks until I fly out, so excited!
