    Hi,

    My mates and I will be flying into Bangkok on the 28th of December and flying out on the 22nd of January. Thats all we have organised. I have looked at some other flights to Phuket etc but I hear different stories of different people. We are looking to see some sights, perhaps a day of diving and lots of partying including new years eve. Any tips or even better a suggested itinerary. Thanks in advance

    hi trenta,

    look in the Trip Planner section (link is to the right here) for ideas on itinerary. there are a few features too, like which is the best thai island and such that will help give you ideas.

    the only specific i'd offer for now is to sort our your accomodation and whatever transport you might need over the new year's holiday as far in advance as possible. new year's is a huge holiday in thailand, and it seems like everyone will be going somewhere, making getting a spot on a plane, train or bus almost impossible unless you've book ahead.

    yes, it's a busy time and book in advance your flights. Come to the guesthouse early morning to be sure you have a bed.

    the cheapest accommodation will go fast - but it still will be more expensive than now.

    after the flight you will be tired and jetlagged - stay in Bangkok for a few days, see the sights.

    if you are planning to go to Phuket try to go to islands there as well as Krabi.

    Cheers guys. Is there plenty of ferries to make island hopping easy?

    for smaller island there are no regular boats - but they are, literally, waiting for you and ready to depart anytime. If the price quoted is too much just wait near the boat for more sharers to go your direction or join a boat to an another island.
