Solo Travel in south east Asia.

Posted by coco102472 on 19/8/2016 at 00:09

Hello, I am a female living in the US and I plan to travel to SE Asia during the summer months next year (i.e., July/August). I'd like to visit at least two countries, but hopefully three with Thailand definitely being one. This will be my first solo trip and I'd appreciate any guidance I can get (e.g., best countries to visit at that time, safety issues, travel agent or not, cities and/or sites to see, etc,). I look forward to any responses that may guide me in the right direction. Thank you. ...

Best place in Phuket for 25 f solo traveller

Posted by Sarahkpd on 14/8/2016 at 13:59

Hi all, I will be doing my PADI in Phuket from 13-15 November before joining a tour group to go island hopping on the 16th. I will be arriving from Bangkok late evening on the 12 and will need a place to stay for 4 nights close to the diving school.

The diving company has suggested the following areas: Patong, ...

Base for a couple of months

Posted by helenclaireaz on 24/6/2016 at 02:59

Hi advice appreciated as to where to base ourselves for a couple of months. Mid range priced accommodation on a resort/beach ideal. Not a party place but not too quiet or somewhere within reach reach of 'civilisation'. We would like to do a bit of island hoping maybe staying somewhere for a couple of nights. Probably fly into Bankok and spend a few days there sightseeing before moving on. We've never visited Thailand before and on doing my research it all seems very bewildering, so much choi ...

Hi, Can anyone please advise an easy way and not too expensive to reach Krabi town or Krabi airport from Khao Sok National Park?

Budget long term Apartment Koh Tao

Posted by caitlinbrady on 13/3/2011 at 17:11

I am currently looking for an apartment on Koh Tao near the southern tip of the island. All of the budget long term accommodation I've found so far consists of very basic rooms (fan, cold water, bed without blanket, no shelves or storage etc.). Since I will be here for quite some time I'm hoping to find something a little more comfortable such as a studio with a small kitchen and perhaps hot water that doesn't stray too far from the backpacker budget. Anyone have any recommendations?? ...

Help with my itinerary, please? :)

Hi everyone. I'm traveling to Thailand in August. I'll arrive in Bangkok at 1:55 am on August 14th and will depart on August 24th. I am trying to plan a fun itinerary that isn't too stressful. I'm not trying to see everything. If possible, I'd love to fly to Cambodia and see Siem Reap before heading down to the islands, maybe the Krabi area? Is that doable or prohibitively expensive? I guess my question is.... 9 days. What is the best possible itinerary? I'm a 24 y/o solo female traveler and ...
