I am travelling South East Asia for the first time on Dec 8th until mid March. I have very little idea what I am doing and have decided to plan very little.
I have booked NapPark Hostel for my first 3 nights in Bangkok. The only other thing I would like to pre plan is Xmas/NYE. I am told Koh Phangan is the place to go (full moon parties etc). How long would you suggest I stay there? Someone recommended 2 weeks to me earlier.
Would love some suggestions on what type of accommodation to book and when/how long etc.
I have looked at the Electro Hostel for Xmas/NYE. Gets the best reviews on HostelWorld and is close to the action.
I would like to stay in a really nice hotel for some of it. I would also like to spend some time in a mixed dorm, and a private room in a hostel. Then I get a good mix of meeting people, and some luxury.
So, any help? What order should I do the above. How long to stay in KP? Any advice for accom for any of the above? Cost isn't really an issue, just want the best experience possible.
