I use a 45 litre and I still had a little bit of extra room in it for souvenirs. You don't need heavy clothes for Thailand and you can buy most things there and they are really cheap!

I went on my own to Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam. I loved everything except I was a little disappointed in Singapore. Too much of a modern city.

I was so in love with the cheap prices, the people were very friendly and everything seemed so laid back. I never did make it to the beaches in southern Thailand though. I was surprised how easy it was to get around. Most people spoke English, or at least the basics. Never felt my safety was in jeopardy. I was with a couple of friends and we took cabs everywhere we went. Insist on them using the meter. They will rip you off otherwise. Keep and eye on the meter as we got into one cab and we noticed that it was running a lot faster than normal. We called the guy on it and after many words exchanged, we were able to pay the price that we should have paid (we had taken that same route before a couple of times).
