Im Cory, a 26 year old dude from Toronto Canada.
Im going to be travelling to Thailand this September for about a month.
This will be my first backpacking trip and my first time out out of north america. With the exception of a Cuba trip next month.
My only plan for the trip is full moon party Sept 12. If there at any other travellers in the area around the same time, perhaps we can meet up and explore Thailand for a bit. If there are any must see places, id like to hear about those too.
Alternately, Im looking for a good place to stay didnt first two nights in BKK. Somewhere thats good for meeting people and what not. Any suggestions would be cool.
Khaosan Road is a good neighborhood to meet up with full moon type travelers. It's Bangkok's Mecca for backpackers, many guesthouses.
I'm arriving in Bangkok middle of august but i will still be around in sept. I'm also thinking of the fullmoon party too. Have you booked your flights yet? I would be happy to meet up ..
Yep, flights are booked. I land in BKK on Sept 8 in the morning. I havent booked flghts down to FMP yet. Im totally down to meet up on the way. What are your plans so far?

Hello again - sorry i hadnt realised you had replied on here even though i check this site a lot
Well my overal plan is i am spending 5.5 months in SE Asia and in feb im flying from Singapore to NZ. I will get a 60 day tourist visa for Thailand so I expect be there the whole of sept. I am arriving in Bangkok late on august 20th. I'm not sure of my exact plans when I am there as I have travelled alone once before i know eveything changes . I just know what I want to see. I am definately looking into the full moon party and nothern Thailand. I was also reading on slightly less well known islands the other day and they look really good.
I land in Bangkok on 5th Sept and going to be travelling around Thailand for a month. i also have plans to go to the full moon party on 12th Sept. Where esle are u thinking of going? I'm staying in the Lub d Bangkok - Silom for the first 2 nights and the rest I'm going to sort out when I'm there.
