Also posted in koh Tao forums but thought I'd post in koh phagnan for more/different responses.
In 2009 I spent three months backpacking Asia and we got better walk in rates at backpacker spots as we could negotiate. This year we are going back and hoping to stay at more midrange resorts. While I don't mind not booking things I'm wondering if the midrange resorts are as favourable to walk ins offering better rates than the advanced booking rates online (or booking.com) rates.
Does anyone know how high end or midrange resorts respond to being called on the day and if they give better rates in order to fill rooms?
