    Hi guys ive posted before but like an idiot wrote the wrong dates(not a good start)
    I will be flying to thailand feb 2014 all alone to get away from life and have an adventure,I have a few rough plans but nothing set in stone.
    The bit I'm worried is gettin of the plane and feeling totally alone!!!
    Is anyone flyin at the same time and happy to meet for a drink whilst we/I get my bearings and maybe travel abit if are plans match?or can someone recommend where I can meet like minded people in Bangkok before I head out?thanks in advance:)

    Khao San Road is the classic place for meeting other travellers. Used to have a rep as a backpacker ghetto but these days has a wide variety of accomm in the general area. Good array of traveller services but most people advise avoiding the transport options away from here to distant places. One exception is Lomprayah which offers a great overnight bus to Chumpon to meet its fast catamaran out to Ko Tao and islands south - you were asking on the other thread about places with good dive schools and plenty of people to meet.

    I'm actually going to Big Blue Diving in September. Right now I am only doing 5 days there and getting my open water but hoping I can save a bit more and stay in S.E.A. for 3 months instead of 5 weeks (I'm thinking of doing the 2 month divemaster course they have there).

    Do you know with big blue if I can just turn up and book it if I don't mind waiting a few days or does it book up quick?
