Hi kristie. Don't worry to much of finding a buddy it won't be a problem meeting people. I traveled to Thailand in July & have only just returned . I started in koh Tao as I wanted to do my dive masters so I didn't travel as much. I met some amazing people & stayed for 3 1/2 months. I also traveled to koh phi phi ao nang karabi and Phuket would only recommend 1 night there. Karabi 1 night you can kayak to Tomsk & reyligh from there, you won't find much night life. If I was you do the islands first then koh panghan as its only an hour from koh Tao. If you travel by night boats trains etc they are quite safe &you will meet lots of people along the way. Good luck I will be going back myself in the new year
Hey Kristie. I was thinking about going there next year too about same time as you. I'm thinking about moving there for some months so it would be really nice exploring those places first. Sounds like a good route so far
Ill be travelling through Thailand from January 2013. Im going alone which a lot of people say is better but I wouldn't mind knowing a few people before I get there. Would be great to meet and travel a little together. I rarely check this so can anyone interested please email me!?
[ Edit: Sorry, no personal details please. ]
I'm new on here but I am looking at going out to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and then onto Australia and NZ around March/April next year.
All my friends and family are occupied with jobs or partners so been considering doing it alone as I know friends that have done that and have found it wonderful although I'd prefer to at least go out with someone and find our feet together and then can always go off separate ways if we wanted to do different things or stick together! Either I would be good with! Plus I'm open to any routes as I just want to see the world and meeting people!
If anyone wants to compare routes or have a chat please get in contact!!
I'll be going to Thailand 20th of March until the 27th with my friend and we'll be there for a week. we'll go to Phuket first to check out the beach and then head back to Bangkok and stay at Khao San Road.
Hope to meet some of you guys and hang out.
Just realised my email was stolen haha,
I really want to hear everyone's ideas, I'll be in Thailand and surrounding areas alone so would be great to meet some of you, either message me on here orrrrrr find me on facebook?
