I arrive in Kuala Lumpur on the 24th Dec and leave on the 14th January and would like to visit Singapore, Phuket and Koh Samui but have made no set plans yet. I want to do a bunch of tours like take the speedboat trip to the Phi Phi islands and sea kayaking. Is anyone else out at a similar time and looking for a travel buddy, specifically early January in Thailand as I think I will stick to Malaysia and Singapore in December? I'm a little nervous doing this trip on my own and reckon it would be much more enjoyable with like minded travellers! I'm 29 F from Scotland.

My plans are....not really in existence yet! I would like to visit the islands such as koh samui, Puhket and the Phi Phi's and had thought that I would fly from KL to Surat Thani, ferry to Koh Samui, then bus to Phuket or Krabi then fly back to KL (or the other way around) starting just after New Year. When I'm on the islands I want to do a few excursions like elephant treks, snorkelling and sea kayaking. Does any of that sound like it might fit into your plans?

My plans are starting to come together now as I have booked a few things. I will be in Singapore from 27-30th Dec and Thailand from 3-12th Jan. I will probably head to Phuket for a few days and spend the rest of the time in Ao Nang doing a bunch of tours and visiting islands. Leah, if you are heading to the isalnds from Bangkok then I will probably be in Ao Nang from the 6th or 7th of January until the 12th if that is of any interest.

Dec 29- Jan3, so poor 6-days holiday, bangkok is necessary, if time enough,i plan to Chiengmai or Pattaya. who knows Chiengmai or Pattaya which is more worth to go? A Chinese girl prefers local special food and custom^ ^

I am a 24 year old male from Brisbane.

Myself and a friend land in Phuket on the 10th of January. We will be in the southern area of Thailand until the 30th of January - including the full moon party on Koh Phanang on the 26th (which is also Australia day!)

We are interested in meeting up with other keen travellers along the way :-).
