Travel Forums Asia backpacking Thailand mid Jan solo

Planning a trip up to Thailand, I plan on being there from mid Jan till early/mid Feb. Seeing if any other solo or couple backpackers out there want to meet up in that time frame. Take trains/flights around Thailand to see the most that we can from the night life and beaches, to the entire cultural aspect of Thailand!

19 year old male from Seattle, WA. Currently living in Melbourne, Aus. I've been backpacking around Australia the last 3 months but will be coming back to Oz after the Thailand trip is over and traveling the entire east coast in Feb-March.

let me know!

hey jared... i am flying out to bangkok on the 16th jan staying there for a night then flying to phuket where i paln to get a ferry to phi phi to relax there. Then maybe krabi and up to vietnamn cambodia etc would also like to squeeze in a full moon party along the way! I have already done ko saumi, ko tao that side so thought i would try the other side.

I am then going to australia to do the east coast too.

What date do you plan to get into thailand?

hi all.

right now the plan is still
21/1 thailand
23/1 black moon party(possibly)
then head back to bangkok to explore for a week or so.
but after that i plan to head down to the phuket/phi phi area. i am a very active person and love doing things out doors and i heard around phuket you can kayak, rockclimb, snorkel, jungle walks, cliff jumping. all that good stuff.sounds amazing.

georgina i plan to go to vietnam as well seeing as i can only stay in thailand for a month. most likely will reenter thailand after a week or so in vietnam.
defiantly want to go to the Feb 8 full moon party.

hey jared,

i just read another post on another forum about the heavy rain in the south. my plan right now still remains the same, arrive on 21st, black moon party on 23. but i will keep my eyes on the news about the rain/flood, hopefully its gonna be okay and the trains will still run.

The rain/flood warning is suppose to end on the 27th of Jan. The heavy floods were back in Oct-Dec.
