I am planning a trip to Thailand January-Feb 2014 and am most interested in seeing the southern beaches and Chang Mai, and maybe a few days to a week in Bangkok. I'm 24 years old and am mostly interested in exploring, and would like to party a bit as well. I have friends in Chang Mai who I can stay with.
Should I book my flights now to try to save money? Or just book a one way and leave my options open (I may not want to stay exactly six weeks).
I would really love any advice or information that you may have!
