Hey guys!

I'm 18, from London. I land in Bangkok on the morning of the 30th.
I've got my first week planned from the 30th of June - 7th of July just south of Pattaya. I'm still planning what's next after that! I was thinking of getting a sleeper train to Chiang Mai after that and then going down to SE Thailand and doing some island hopping.

It's my first time in Thailand, first time travelling alone really. I'm becoming more and more comfortable with the idea of it. (My friends and family have also told me it's "dangerous" etc. haha. It's only dangerous if you have no common sense though! Just take the same precautions as you would at home and maybe even more as it's a foreign atmosphere to us... Thailand is also known as the land of smiles!)

My only worry is loneliness! Like, I'm sure I'll find something to do, but sometimes it's nice to have some company. A month basically solitary might drive me slightly crazy...

Hey people,

Im landing in Bangkok around the 30th June, yet to book my connecting flight from India but it should be that date. In brief looking on going north thailand then to laos briefly then cambodia then do the whole of the south before flying back on august 20th. If anyone has similar plans or even part similar plans, gimme a shout.

Hi Charlotte,

I'm Angharad from Wales, looking at going to Thailand mid-end of July to travel will be coming from Australua. Would be great to have a travel companion - feel a little hesitant like you, but sure everything will be okay in the end.

Let me know your plans closer to the time :)

Hi everybody! I'm arriving in Bangkok on the 26th of June. It would be great to find people to meet up with when I get there. Will anyone be around then ?

Hey Julie,

I'm arriving in Bangkok at the beginning of July, I haven't booked my plane tickets yet but will do that soonish. Yeah i'm for meeting up, I'm looking to meet as many people as I can on the trip since I'm traveling solo :) Do you have any ideas about what area in Bangkok you'd like to stay in? I've been looking at a few hostel sites and this one seems handy http://www.hostelbookers.com/property/prp/37535/arr/2013-08-01/ngt/3/ppl/1/

Hey! I will be in Thailand from the 29th of June til the end of July, so I'm pretty much within all of your dates! Haha.

I've got my first week planned and unfortunately can't meet with anyone to do that, but afterwards I'm going back to Bangkok to catch a bus to Lopburi for a few hours, maybe a night and then jumping on a sleeper train to Chiang Mai to spend a couple of days and from there going to Pai for a night. If anyone wants to join me from Bangkok through to Pai that would be awesome!!

Let me know :)

Hi Angharad!!

I actually don't have a plan from the mid July til the end. So I'd be totally up for negotiation, but I had a rough idea of going to Krabi and then seeing some of the islands before heading back to Bangkok and staying there for my last 2-3 days. :)

Hi everyone!! I'm looking to go to Thailand for 4 weeks. Would be landing in Bangkok on the 30th of June, then making my way to Pattaya to go have fun with some elephants, then going to travel to Sangkhlaburi to volunteer and then travel down to Phuket and spend the rest of my time there until the 29th of July. Anyone else going to be around at the same time?

I'm 18 and kind of hesitant...!

Hey Charlotte. I arrive on the 27th so will probably still be in Bangkok when you arrive. I'm really nervous about being on my own aswell.
So it'd be good to meet up maybe?

Absolutely!! It's just difficult because really I'm not properly free to meet with anyone until the 7th of July. :/

But I'm completely up for meeting you after that!!

Have you got a plan?
