Hi all!!

My names Matt, Im a 20 year old male, and was all for solo travelling in July after my mate dropped out, untill i realised most hotel/hostel rooms we were looking at have a double room as the minimum price room they were offering (we were splitting the price and staying in the double room), it seems i will have to still pay that price by myself being a solo traveller as these are the cheapest rooms they do....
has everyone else got this extra price to pay for being a solo traveller?
If not how can i avoid it/cost savers/hotel suggestions(am travelling Bangkok, phuket island hopping, FMP etc)...anything really. As i will not be able to travel with this extra cost throughout.

Thanks in advance

If a couple of quid per day is wrecking your budget then simply stay in dorm accommodation.

Hi steven,

I found places for as little as £8 a night in bangkok but over full moon period in koh panang can cost about £15. this was with splitting the double rooms of course with my mate.. will have to re asses my accommodation now im going lone wolf!

Hey Matt,

The majority of accommodation will be cheap for a solo traveller as long as you're using hostel or guest house accommodation. For the full moon party, the majority of places do have bungalows which sleep 2 - 4 people but there are hostels and guest houses which should accommodate your need. Have a browse online, i'm pretty sure you'll find something to match your criteria. Also, July is termed as high season and prices generally do go up especially for the FMP so you could expect to pay between £10 - £15 per night.
Hope that helps.
