Hello I am desperate for some help and advice. im a 30 year old male and Me and my girlfriend wanted a Christmas holiday this year and after some rave reviews and some advice from friends we decided on Thailand! We had a good look into it and booked everything. Unfortunately now we have sadly split up, and shes booked to go away the same time to see her family in boston. A friend said he would give me some money for her ticket which I paid for. But unfortunately Turkish airlines will not change the name or refund me for the ticket! So im left with 2 options. 1: to scrap the holiday all together and just take the £2400 loss its cost. as ive never been to Thailand and never travelled alone. along with spending Christmas and new year all by myself. or 2: Do I go it alone and just go in debt and try and enjoy myself? I have never been Thailand is it safe to travel alone? how much spending money will I need? will I meet people out there to share costs of boats and taxis etc and to party with?
all hotels and flights are booked.
itinerary so far is fly out 21st December. Spend 2 nights in Bangkok on kao san road. Then fly to krabi. spend 4 nights on railay beach includes Christmas day. then get to phiphi island and spend 4 nights there. then flight back to Bangkok for another 2 nights!
Please if anyone can give me advice on taxis, boats or anything it would b massively appreciated. thanks. dave!!
