Planning on travelling to Thailand first week of November 2013..no definate plans yet but thinking of starting in chang mai and then doing cambodia and vietnam,possibly to Nepal in the new year...definatly up for some exploring,trekking and of course partying!
Wondering if anyone is around Thailand at the same time or if anyone has booked to do Thai Intro..have heard its easy to meet people but a bit worried about travelling alone,so was considering signing up but wasnt sure if it was worth it?
Would be great to hear from anyone and find some drinking buddies!
Nicola :-)

Hey
I am arriving in Thailand 6th November into Bangkok, booked flights today :) sooo excited now!
I would like to see Cambodia and Vietnam too, also want to be in Thailand for the NYE moon party on the beach as I think that will be an amazing memory. I am planning to scuba dive in Koh Toa but apart from that I am easy and up for going with the flow...leaving and going it alone is daunting so great to meet some people I have got to know between now and then :)

I still need to book my flights...who are you flying with and which airpirt are you flying from?
Sounds like we have pretty much the same plans..i agree about the full moon party will be amazing!
Have you booked any accomodation yet for when you get there?

I am flying with Qatar Airways from heathrow on 5th November and arrive in Bangkok on 6th. Found the flights on the skyscanner app.
I have looked at accommodation in Bangkok but nothing booked yet. I have ordered lots of travel guides etc and want to know a little more about the areas of Bangkok itself then decide where to stay. I do plan to have the first 3-4 nights booked before leaving then go from there! The not knowing after those few nights is scary but so exciting too.
Yea sounds like we have similar plans. Are you on Facebook or use whatsapp on your phone? Be good to chat between now and then, kind of like the thought of feeling like you know and can trust someone as soon as you arrive!

I was planning for a new year vacation in Thailand but was not sure about the timings to the tour but if it happens to be around November starting than i would love to join with you guys. I will keep you updated about my plans.

Hi Rhys
You seem to have much more of a plan than I do currently. Certainly a roundabout route that I am considering but may be taking a little longer to complete it. Happily meet for a drink or several if your still in Bangkok when I arrive 6th Nov.

Jaff you will have to keep us informed.

I think I need to just book my flight now and be brave otherwise I wont end up doing it! Yeah I'm on Facebook... I think the link is on the profile I have on here, send me a message Ash. I was planning on doing some diving around that area as well, its supposed to be amazing...was also planning on meeting my best friend and her boyfriend to spend xmas and new year around those islands and maybe Koh Phi Phi for new year, the more the merrier! I agree it would be nice to know someone when you get out there! Be good to hear from you.

Rhys, you definitely have more of a plan than I do as well! Think I need to get a bit more organised, keep us updated :)
