Accommodation availability Christmas/New Year - Thailand


I was wondering what the accommodation availability is like over Christmas and New Year.

We will be spending almost a month from 12th December until 7th January. We are flying in and out of Bangkok where we will book something in advance. Other than that we were intending to be spontaneous. Our only major plan at the moment is to end up at Koh Lanta at some point.

It is my first time in Thailand but my bf spent a month there ten years ago, he thinks we will be fine but I'm a little concerned!

We are on a fairly tight (but not too cheapo) budget, not too concerned about how basic the accommodation is but I don't want to end up sleeping on the beach!

Any advice would be most welcome :)

You will find somewhere to sleep that for sure but you are not going to have much choices. Also you might end up pay more than you're plans or find not the ideals places.

I would suggest just book somewhere a couple of nights in Bangkok and book a night or two next destinations before you are moving on. In that case you have place to stay when you are arrive.

As above I am sure you will find somewhere but it could be that all the 'budget' accom is full and you end up paying a lot of money out. Not sure I would risk it if on a tight budget over this period

You are travelling at peak tourist season in Thailand. You will find accommodation but it might not be what you would have picked normally.

I would booked in advance as much as you can.
