Hi all I'm going backpacking on my own for the first time ever on jan 11th for 17 days starting in patong and hopefully finishing at full moon party on 26th before I fly back on 28th just wondering if anyone can give me any advice as thing to see or do along the way.im looking at stopping in patong for three days just to find my feet then moving on to Phuket town for maybe couple of days.Sail to koi phi phi for couple days then krabi and the try to get to koh samui if there is anyone who could give advice that would be great or even meet up for beer would be fantastic.Look forward to any replies.

I'm backpacking for my first time too, I'm in Thailand already on my 4th day.
Your plans kind of match mine so would be happy to explore together?

Yeah defo going to go to the Full Moon, was thinking of booking one of the vip speedboats to go over. Are you staying in Koh Samui or on Koh Phangan?
Cambodia is amazing, loved Siem Reap and Angkor Watt, so much to see and do and so cheap, looking forward to visiting Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Koh Rong and finishing up back in Siem Reap.
Ive never been to Phuket but it hopefully one day i will get there! Hows the weather at the mo?
It's red hot no rain,patong is a crazy town glad it's my last night here to be honest cause its destroying me lol met a bar owner called Vincent from Chelsea and he took me round all these crazy places got in at 7am lol as I write this I'm in bed destroyed lol.Gonna stop in sumai I think cause might have to fly from there on twenty seventh back to Phuket to get my flight home on twenty eighth
Oh dear, hope your hangover isnt too bad, lol.
