Backpacking advise

Posted by bigbum on 10/11/2010 at 05:55

Hello im inquiring about some advice for going to Thailand in January. I have never backpacked before and would really like as much info and advise from people that have done it before and advise on some issues I have been thinking about, such as do I take travellers cheques, credit cards, where to go and where not to go, and the main important thing is an essential to have in my backpack.

Im also going to the full moon party, just want to know if anybody has been and would they recommend it?

Us to girls would really like as much info as poss.

Many thanks xx

Goog place to start would be the Travel planning section - lots of what you are asking is covered there.

What to pack really is geograghy dependent. Assuming you are just going to SEA, then check out the link posted. Should be good to go.

Most of what you're asking is thoroughly covered in the articles and forums here (I know it can be overwhelming). If you have any specific questions after you're perused these sections, please ask them :)
