Have a blast! Funny, I get there on the 9th too. Won`t be heading down south though....

Don`t do anything too crazy!

Do NOT miss the Phi Phi islands. You can take boats from Phuket, no problem. Truly one of God's masterpieces.

Hey, sounds great. Do you know where you're staying in Hong Kong yet?

I'm trying to find a good place to stay (not going for some time though), so would be interested to hear about where you stay!

Have a blast!

Awesome! One thing, ah, the airport is far from everything. Probably an hour or more on the metro to get to Kowloon. But what a great metro. Have fun!

Two things you have to do in Hong Kong are ride the Star Ferry and take the tram up Victorias Peak. Take a walk through the wet market, too.

When heading over to the full moon party, keep your eyes open on what is happening with the weather AND your boat transportation that you will be taking to Koh Phangan. They overload the ferries and speedboats quite often and if the weather gets rough they capsize farily easily. Not trying to alarm you, but just keep your eyes open and don't always assume the people piloting the boats know what they are doing. Enjoy!!
