hey so im looking to travel to Thailand early Feb, 20 year of male from Ireland traveling alone so was wondering if anyone was in the same situation as me and wanted a buddy.

Planning on heading out to koh tao for a few weeks to get my dive master and then either travel more or stay and work on at a dive center.

To be honest i am a little nervous in going out on my own and even if anyone wanted to meet up while im in koh tao would be cool.

thanks.

Have you sorted out your visas yet? I don't read anything about a return date. If you do not have a return ticket or a Tourist Visa you may not even get out of your airport at home.

You can not go to Thailand and stay as long as you want!

Technically you can not even work in Thailand without a Work Permit and they are hard to get.

There will be plenty of tourists in Thailand in February, maybe not as many as around Christmas and New Years. But when it is cold in N. America and northern Europe you get a lot of tourists in Thailand.
