    awww you gonna love thailand. i did the east trip in april this year. april is definitely the best time to go. if you wanna go else where just before or after the west tour i would recommend going to chaweng beach in koh samui. i still dream about the fun i had there, its pathetic. lol. but enjoy. also to see who is going on your tour, once you have booked you can join your group chat to meet people who are on the same trip online

    Hi, Im doing Island Hopper West departing 1st of march. Looks like a great tour. Heading over solo.

    Sweet! We’ll be on the same tour. :) are you coming from Bangkok before?

  • 20 Dec 2013 Kurt said


    Awesome! Im flying direct into Phuket on the Friday evening. What are you doing afterwards? Im going to head down to KL & Singapore

  • 20 Dec 2013 briefhiatus said


    I fly home (via Bangkok) right after. Most of my travels are before.

    hi guys, why dont you join your tour group. just go onto meetups and enter your invoice number for the tour and then you’ll get to meet some other people who are on the same trip as you. i would also highly highly suggest visiting koh samui. Ark Bar on chaweng beach is off the chain along with The Green Mango club. when shopping dont be afraid to negotiate on prices. I got those funny asian pants for 150 baht in bangkok and in phuket they were going for 500 baht.

    Hey guys! I just booked contiki Thailand island hopper west March1 trip. A little daunting as Ive never travelled and am going on my own – would love to find people ill be travelling with :-)

    Don’t be worried about doing it by yourself. Last year 90% of my tour were solo travelers so everyone is in the “meet new people mode” for the first few days. You will have tons of fun and meet great new friends, trust me ;)
