    yes. thailand is a pretty user-friendly place that way, and you'll probably be better off just playing it by ear rather than planning out a rigid itinerary. most of the info you'll need is available right here on the site, and you can pick up a lot of info as you go too from fellow travellers, guest houses, travel agents, etc. one thing you might want to do, particularly in the larger places like bangkok, chiang mai, and samui, is to have a few places to stay in mind where you can get a room for at least the first night. that way you aren't dragging your pack all over town with you looking for a place to stay. i hope that helps. regards.

    There's no such thing as 'Lone Travelling'. Us humans like to interact, before you know it you'll be bumping into people you met earlier on your trip.
