Hi i am a 24 year old male from the gold coast, aus, i am heading to bangkok for 4 days oct 1-4 2011 and phuket for 10 days oct 4 -15 looking for any other alone travellers or groups to hang out with, do activity's and party with, if anyones keen hit me up cheers
Thailand is really a good place to visit but sad when you're alone. Can't you invite other friends to come? Aren't you scared of inviting total strangers to join you in your trip?
Im heading to thailand in late december and it to is going to be my first solo backpacking trip. Im a little nervous but thats half the fun of traveling, I love meeting complete strangers to hangout with, maybe grab a beer, and sometimes continue to travel with. And if you ever run into somebody you cant stand, the beauty about traveling solo is you can always go your own way whenever you want.
PAULMACPAUL -is the first person that ive heard say "thailand is sad when your alone." Most people ive been talking to have said its the best when solo because there are so many others backpackers to meet and travel along with.
-I have already lined up a few strangers but like minded travelers to meet up with along my trip.
Good luck, have fun, and stay safe.
Heading to Thailand Oct 2nd with few friends, doing couple days in Bangkok then down to Phuket. Heading to full moon party on 12th Oct then finishing up in phi phi. Looking forward to meeting lot of cool people on our travels.
hey, i'm flying into bangkok on the 4th Oct and staying for about 2/3 days then getting the night train down to Surat Thani for the ferry across the Ko Phangan for the full moon party on the 12th. After that, heading to Phuket, Phi Phi, Ko Lanta, Krabi and anywhere else that takes my fancy before heading down through Malaysia, Singapore and Bali and then Oz.
If any of these plans sounds like something you're interested let me know, I was meant to be travelling with my best friend but she's had to pull out.
Lauren I'm gonna be in koh SAMUI/koh phangan from 9th till 14th then flying to Phuket to head to phi phi straight after. Your welcome to jump in and join us, the more ppl travelling the better craic it will be :-)
Oh wow that sounds awesome. Timings are pretty much identical to mine although I wanted to explore Koh Phangan a little more once the FMP is over... plus to save money I was planning on getting a nightbus to Phuket, but I'm open to anything to be honest. Are you travelling with a big group or just a few of you?
Would be comforting to know people at the FMP! x
There's just a couple of us travelling together. We looking at being in koh phangan from 9th till 14th coz I'm only one that's been before and the rest wana have an explore also. The flights were pretty cheap with Bangkok airways. Means more time to party rather than be on bus :-) lol. FMP is pretty nuts and always good to have few ppl to hang out with :-) you'd be very welcome to hang out and party with us as long as you want :-)
That sounds wicked, thanks the only reason i wanted to get the bus is that i would get to see more of the country than just a load of airports but like i said, whatever, I'm easy with plans, I really don't care about much other than chilling out for 2/3 months in sunshine. If you use facebook, give me a cheeky add and we can maybe talk more about meeting up.
