Ahh at least I know theres someone else going are you flying from heathrow? Yeah i've tried to stick to the trip notes in terms of packing but no doubt ill over pack or forget something. How much roughly did you take last time for thailand, obvioulsy all the flights and hotels are included a few of my friends have been to thailand and they've said its fairly cheap, so i'm just curious at to how much will be enough to live off for 12 days.

No I'm flying from Manchester airport as it is just around the corner...and not via Heathrow. Meals are fairly cheap but then it depends if you drink beer or not, or are a compulsive shopper. I haven't thought about finances yet to be honest. The trip notes give some guidance on costs so work from that and add extra for tips and souvenirs.

Hi this is Josie and Katherine, we're going to Thailand with you too! We are flying from Heathrow, first time for both of us in Thailand and can't wait. :) We were thinking about finances too... have you guys decided how much you are taking roughly? Just looked up the first hotel which looks amazing...

Hey Josie and Katherine, I think im gunna take around £300? but its fairly cheap so hopefully wont be spending all of that on food and drink! I cant wait its like 9 days away! what time are u flying from heathrow, are you going straight to bangkok or are you on the group flights thats going via delhi? Im flying straight to bangkok on the 12.30 flight, if your on the same flight we could maybe arrange to meet at heathrow? this is my first time doing anything like this and my first time in thailand, so hopefully it all goes to plan!

Hey Wendy :)
We are flying via Mumbai, leaving about 9am I think so we'll be at Heathrow for about 7 so we'll miss you im afraid, but will see you at the other end! Josie is a pretty experienced traveller, whereas this is my first time doing anything like this too! Very excited, a little apprehensive but I think thats as it should be! I'm sure we'll be fine :) do you know how many of us there are on this trip?
