I will arrive in Thailand (BKK) at the end of February and travel around in Thailand/Laos till the beginning of April. I would like to know if reservations for accomodation are necessary in this time period. Actually, I prefer to look for a place to stay when I get there, but on the other hand I don't like to try 10 different guesthouses because everything is occupied. How do you do it usually?
What about booking flights? I will maybe take the plane to get from Chiang Mai to Ko Samui or Luang Prabang. Is it necessary to book those flights some weeks ahead or are a couple of days sufficient?
Thanks for any comments!

I would book the fights but In febrauary you could not book the hotels and be ok i think. but It depends where you want to stay. Some websites offer good discounts but some good places arent on any websites.
completely agree with Jon_Mak_Mak that booking flights ahead of time is a good idea but that you won't need to for hotels.
there is a well-thought-out feature article on exactly this topic of whether you'll need reservations or not on your holiday at http://www.travelfish.org/feature/101. worth a read!
