Hey fenn!

I'm flying into Bangkok on July 2nd and planning on touring the north and south east over 4 weeks! I'm travelling solo also! The full moon party is on the 17th in Koh Phnagan so planning to be there for that! What's your plans for Thailand?

I'm touring my first week to get used to things- doing the thai intro which goes south to the islands.
From here im confused.
I want to fit everything in around the black moon party on the 30th (i think) to celebrate my 21st birthday in early august. But then I really want to be at the full moon party which is mid august.
I defoo want to do Chang Mai and a week in Vietnam. Planning to go through cambodia overnight train/bus. Travel across Cambodia into Vietnam then fly back to BKK from here. I just trying figure out the best route to take.
But also how i can fit it all in two weeks before the Full Moon Party.

Are you doing a guided tour through the north?

Hello :) im in thailand for really similar dates to you, think i arrive 2 days before you though. im staying till early sept but it would be great to meet people in bangkok which im imagining will be the scariest bit of the journey! so let me know if you wanna meet :)

Myself and my sister are travelling fro Hong Kong to Singapore taking in Vietnam Cambodia, Laos Thailand Malaysia and then onto Singapore startin on the 1st of July until the end of August. We will be in KohPhangan for fiull moon party on the 14th Aug 11. We are planning on doing most of our travel on trains and buses. Maybe one or two flights in between. Defo thinking about getting a flight fom Koh Samui - Koh Phi phi. What tour are you joining once you arrive. I did one of them through India last year and it was fantastic. Be careful in Bangkok though on your own.

Hi Guys,

Glad everyone will be at the Full Moon Party, I know there pretty lively anyway but still always good to know =]

I will be doing the Thai Intro i think, expensive for what is is but people always say its worth it, hopefully will a birthday present aswel so even more of a bonus i guess. I got in touch with them and they said they will do a pick up from my hotel, I just need to find a decent one in the city so I can wonder around during the day, pretty nervous the more I think about it but I reackon i'll be reet as long as I dont look completly lost.

I want to do as many islands and sunshine as i can in thailand and vietnam! All the rest can fall inbetween. Im pretty easy with plans, as long as i can squash it all into the time I have.

heyy, i think im doing the opposite order to you guys but might change it as at the mo theres no way ill be able to fit thai island stuff at the end. And theres waaay too much stuff to fit into 8 weeks. Im not doing any tours or anything, therefore i am a bit scared. eee cant wait though! anyway errr anyone going the same direction as me?x

hmm i've been to bangkok many times and it's pretty safe to me! i'm more worried about the other towns in laos and cambodia actually. but always good to be wary and cautious of course!

andrea i think after all that travelling you'd like to wind down and soak up the sun and laze on the beaches on the thai islands!
