    Just had a look through emails and I actually arrive in Bangkok 8:00 PM, staying at Floral Shire Resort – 50 bucks for 1 night, breakfast and transfers to and from airport so can’t complain! My flight to Koh Samui is at 7:45AM.

    My arrival in Bangkok is later than i’d have hoped but i’m sure there’ll be time to partake in a few cheeky ones!

    Hey Cal, you can add one more to the list. I am traveling solo, first contiki tour.

    Am going to be at Koh Samui a day early and would stay back after contiki for a day more.

    First time to Thailand and looking forward to it :)

    Good stuff! I am staying in Koh Samui for an extra night at the end where we finish! Also first time to Thailand, yeah cant wait, bring on night one, going off!!! :)

    Cool, I stay a night extra after the tour and then a night at the Kaulalumpur airport. Then straight back to brissy :) We may be on the same flight, unless u r traveling somewhere else from there.

    Looking forward to Thailand :)

    Hey Cal, I am departing on Thursday night and will be there a day before the contiki starts. I am staying at a different hotel for that day and then will join you all on the first day at the meeting.

    Looking forward to it :)
