    Morning all. I've got from now until the end of april to go travelling solo.

    My plan is to buy a return ticket to Bangkok from London, buy the lonely planet guide - south-east asia on a shoestring, and then just "wing it"!

    I've got a few ideas of where I want to go exploring in the region but I just want to do things as I go along and not make massive plans.

    From experience, is this actually a good idea and has anyone got any good tips?

    I'm doing the same, sort of. I land in Bangkok on March 5th and basically have to be back there by May 27th to catch a flight to Bali. I will take in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. I have a plan of everything I would like to see and a rough route but no actual set dates - i.e. one night here, two nights there etc.

    This is how I've done all my travels in the past and have always been fine and always seen everything I want too!

    Thailand and probably the whole of S.E. Asia is a good place to just 'wing it'.Travel is cheap with perfectly good bus services and a reasonable train service although the trains are getting a bit old.Accomodation is never a problem providing you're not too fussy.
