I realise it's a rather stupid situation, so I would appreciate if you do not comment on THAT

It is my first trip to Thailand (travelling with a friend), and first independent trip in general, so I did make a mistake and overbooked, so now I have on my hands two Superior Twin rooms with breakfast, in a 4-star hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11. Unfortunately, the booking is non-refundable, so I was just wondering if there was anyone looking for accommodation in that area on those nights. I was charged 6,528 Baht for four nights (twice, naturally), and I would really like to salvage at least half of the cost of the extra room, as we are travelling on a rather limited budget.

I'm not sure I can name the hotel (will be considered advertising?), but it seems to be very nice (which I meant our first impression of Thailand to be).

I will not be asking for any money in advance. I have already come to terms with the fact that I overspent, and I am not going to let it ruin my vacation anyway, and my friend and I might just stay in one room each, but if we can find somebody for whom this offer will be interesting, then we will be able to help each other :)

Dear Eurolarik
hy

hope all good at your end?
just gone through your post,
I am travelling solo to Phuket on 28 Feb, and will be there till March 4th.
few things that i would like to share with you:-

One, i am staying at Karen Beach in a 4 star hotel with 8.7 rating, in a executive suite.
they quoted me 3000 Thb but i negotiated the price and get the best room in 2400 Thb.

if you are traveling and would like to accompany me then feel free to join.
Plus, never made payments in advance always make it on arrival, it will save your money and help in making last minute better options. Plus dont forget to negotiate.

i am flexible on dates, if you have any change in plans feel free to touch base.

cheers.

Thank you for the tip, fawwaad! I'll keep it in mind. I guess everything comes with experience.

We are also going to Phuket, but much later, on 18 March. Have a great trip!

fawwaad, no, we are not changing dates.

Tanu, this is also going to be our first time, but we come prepared, so you are welcome to join us if we happen to be in one place at the same time :-) Must warn you, though, that we are not into partying, so many travellers to Thailand may find us boring :-) Also, we are going to move a lot, as we would like to explore as much of the country as possible (so many travellers to Thailand may find us tiring, too :-) The plan is as follows:

8 March to 12 March - Bangkok, with day-trips to 1) Ayuttaiya, 2) Hua Hin and Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park

12 March to 16 March - Siem Reap, Cambodia, to see Angkor and stuff

16 March to 18 March - Pattaya

18 March to 22 March - Phuket with day-trips to 1) Phi Phi, Pha Nga Bay and such, 2) Khao Sok National Park
