Hey Carla,

first of all Congrats, gaining the courage to travel alone is a very hard thing, it will soon be outweighed bt the feeling of achievement and joy though, Thailand and Australia are 2 of the best places you could have picked, they are both very easy to travel around and all part of the main backpacking route-so you will have no problem meeting fellow travellers.
I have covered these areas quite extensivley, so if you have any questions at all i'd be happy to try and help.

Hi Andy,

Thanks very much I have to say I'm quite shocked I actually booked it but it feels like the right thing to do! I am 24 in July I'm from Ireland/Dublin and I just decided it was time to see a bit of the world :)

That's very good to hear that I have picked 2 places that are part of the main backpacking route! I don't even know where to start with the questions!! To be honest I am quite nervous about Thailand, what islands would you recommend to visit?

Ph Phi and Samui are 2 very easy islands to visit, they are both geared toward tourists and there will be virtually no language barrier.
However do not these islands do have a seedier side with prostitution rife although i wouldn't consider either dangerous.
Further down towards Malaysia is Ko Lipe a beautiful, less developed (but its happening) island, very tranquil and pretty, especially up in the North of the island, only 15 mins walk from sunrise beach where the boats drop you.

I'm a 19 yr old girl, also travelling to thailand alone in feb 2013. There are so many other backpackers there so I think we will really never really be alone. What are your plans/ what do you want to see? Exciting :)

"... There are so many other backpackers there so I think we will really never really be alone..."



Nervous travellers to Thailand who are afraid to be solo soon discover that the toughest thing is getting away from the hordes of other nervous solo backpackers...
