Me and my boyfriend are thinking around going backpacking around Thailand in January 2013, I would have to defer my uni place from september to febuary, is it worth it? Is travelling the best thing you’ve ever done? Or should I just go in septemer? Any tips for backpacking around thaliand? (places to go, what to do, do you make lots of friends?)

Thailand is very easy to travel around – the most popular mode of transportation for Thai people and those on a strict budget is by the Thai government buses – fares are cheap and the service is very reliable, but a long bus journey can get quite uncomfortable after a few hours – otherwise, check out Air Asia, Thai Air, Bangkok Air and Nok Air for domestic Thailand flights – you may be able to get a good deal if you book online and in advance.
Thailand is a amazing place – great food, friendly people, laid back/easy going way of life and most things are readily available. The weather in Jan will be more hot than September. A lot of young tourists enjoy going to Koh Phangan (for the full moon party), Koh Samui, Chaing Mai and in Bangkok, the Khao San Road area, where there is a wide choice of cheap accommodation, including hostels and guest houses, which target young backpackers who are on a budget.
Enjoy your trip.
