Hello,
I've just booked this tour last weekend! very excited, its my first solo trip/first time to thailand. I'm a 19 yr old female from the UK. Flying in to bangkok on the 26th november, so probably just going to explore bangkok till the 1st. When do you arrive?

Hello,

I'm doing this trip too. I'm 28 m, from the UK.
Have been to Thailand a couple of times before but not to the areas on the trip (apart from Bangkok).

I'm not getting in to Bangkok until the evening of when our trip starts, so i may be a little tired!

Look forward to meeting you guys and getting some good weather.

Hi Guys,

I'm still wondering which group I will have. I'm starting the Thailand Discovery trip (starting the 23th in Bangkok) and we get back in Bangkok the 1st december, going down south till the 9th december. Is the Southern thailand soujourn a part of the thailand discovery trip? Would be nice:)

Thanks

I've only ever done a couple of nights in Bangkok in what i would describe as a dive, so i'm not much good to help you. I guess a search around Tripadvisor will probably give you a few good hints!

And Prien, i think they are two seperate trips but i could be wrong.

Getting quite excited now :-)

Well im it unsure of what to do, i booked my flights way before i booked the tour. so ive got 4 days to mull around till it starts, which isnt really long enough to go anywhere substantial.

What are you doing after the tour? How long you staying in thailand?

Also has anyone else checked out the g meet-up page on facebook

Hi Guys and girls

I'm doing the Roam Thailand form 1st to 16th Dec and think we start off in the same hotel. Just wondered if when you are all planning on going home? I originally booked my flight back to London for 17th Dec but am now thinking of going home on 22nd dec but not sure if anyone else will be staying out on the islands too!

Here are some more chats that might help by the way: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=22685

and the trip i will be on: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=22460

I'm excited!

My return flight is booked for january 24th, so im going to be around for awhile! I know this tour ends in bangkok but may stay in koh tao at the end for a little bit or go back to koh samui. From there i will probably go to phuket and all the west side islands.
