Hello guys

I'm travelling alone for 3months and want to start in Asia - ending with the full moon party in October.

Does anyone have some suggestions of where to go? I want some countries quite easy to travel in as a first timer! I was thinking N Thailand, then maybe Cambodia, Laos and maybe back to Thailand.

Suggestions would help!

You could start in Thailand head north to Chiang Khong and then into Laos. If your traveling alone I would recommend the two day slow boat to Luang Prabang, a great way to meet new people. From Laos you could then travel through to Cambodia and then on to the Islands for the full moon party.

Are you not interested in visiting Vietnam?

Check out for lots of helpful info for a first timer.

I took that slow boat from Thailand to Loas and it wasn't fun. Spent two days cramped shoulder-to-shoulder in a boat belching exhaust. It was lovely once I finally arrived though.
