I plan to go to Thailand around the end of November for 2 weeks alone.
As I only have 2 weeks I obviously can't go everywhere I would have liked but still looking forward to this great experience.
I have never been to Thailand & will be going by myself. My first stop (I'm sure all travellers the same) is Bangkok then take it from there.
I also want to go to the Full Moon Party that will take place on 10th December. Just wondering is this safe to by one's self? As I'm over there I figured I must go as I will probably never get another opportunity. Also, if going to FMP, how much Baht is an appropriate amount to bring to the beach?
Your comments & advice is much appreciated
Lots of people go to the FMP so book transport and accommodation now.
In Bangkok, if not staying near there, visit Khao San Road which will be full of tourists as that is the place to meet people.
Thailand is about as safe as anywhere can be these days, and thousands of people go there on their own each week.
Just 2 weeks? You'll wish you had booked longer when it's time to go back to Ireland in winter. Being cheap to stay there, the main cost with a Thai holiday is getting there so people often tend to stay longer, as in 30 days (which is visa free).
Thanks for the reply.
Unfortunately I only have 2 weeks to see as much as I can. I've no problem heading there on my own as I've backpacked Australia by myself but just wondering is the FMP a safe place on your own?
Will be a bit of a shock coming back to Ireland mid December & its freezing but who knows I might get lucky & It will be snowing in Ireland & no planes can land in the runway!!
I'm sure you will want to stay longer than 2 weeks
Actually,for your worrying point about safety in FMP I can only say that it safe as any others places can be but there are many mores factors like so many peoples from around the world will go there so it will be very crowded then btw thousand of traveller go there alone every year, dnt worry about it. For more advices if u interest to join FMP you may start booking anything from now on because there will be tons of travellers go there and for the money if you go to the beach you may bring the money with you but not that much beacause anything can happen anywhere esp in the crowded moment.
Hope you enjoy spending time in Thailand, easy,simply, and friendly country for traveller!
Thanks for your reply.
This has been a very helpful sight. It seems the only thing I'll hate about Thailand is having to go home after 2 weeks & not get more time!
My plan is to start in Bangkok, then make my way to Chiang Mai, from there I'll fly to Phuket & get the ferry to Ko Phi Phi, then making my way to Samui where I'll be staying in the lead up to FMP on 10 December!
