Hi All,

I am off to Thailand for 3 weeks on the 7th of December.

I am a 24 year old male and travelling on my own for the first time. Really looking forward to it but of course slightly apprehensive! I have listed my rough itinerary below and would really appreciate any suggestions on places to visit and things to do. Also if anyone’s travels cross paths with mine please get in touch.

My plan as it stands

I have booked to stay in a Hotel on Khao San Road for my first night. I'm hoping to get from the airport and checked in quickly so I can have a stroll around Bangkok at night time and soak it all up. I think it's at this point it will sink in that I'M ALL ON MY OWN!

Where’s the best places to go out and meet other solo travellers in Bangkok?

The next day I plan to get the night bus to North and spend a week there in Chang Mai and Pai which I've been told are well worth a visit.

I will then be heading down to the south islands.

Does anyone know if its possible to get flights from Chang Mai (or any other northern parts) down to the south islands. I have looked into buses but it looks like this will take up a whole day just travelling.

I have accommodation booked over Christmas in Koh Phangan as I'm there for the full moon party and then heading home on the 28th.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you....

John

Khao San Road is the best place to meet people, there are loads of bars about and your hotel will more than likely be in the midst of it. I'll also be on Koh Phangan over christmas and NYE as a solo traveller so give me a shout! where are you staying?
