Hi all.

First of all sorry if i've posted this in the wrong section or anything.

My name is Danny, I'm 20 and I am planning on travelling Thailand early 2013, say february or march time for around 4 weeks. I haven't set a route for places I want to visit yet, but I will in time.

I was just wondering whether anyone else here is planning to visit around the same time, or would like to do it together?

Haven't been there myself and really want to go.

Thanks.

High season, which is December to April, over 100,000 British people go to Thailand each month, as well as many from other countries so lots of others there then.

Literally month by month, the temperature in Thailand goes up from December to April when it is the hottest, not that December is cool.

You get 30 days visa free on arrival which includes day or arrival and day of leaving. Take a budget flight to say Kuala Lumpur or Penang with AirAsia for a day or more and return and you get another 30 days visa free.

Most of the cost of a Thai holiday is getting there. You can have an extra 30 days for not much more money as accommodation and food is cheap there, so be sunning yourself on the beach when they are all freezing back home.

kayak and other companies can give you "reasonable" priced flights. Changing days and non-direct flights can save money.

Accommodation from hostelbookers, asiarooms and the like.

Bangkok is a big and busy city, down south there are many different beaches from busy to quiet and up north is countryside and mountains where it is welcomingly cooler.
