Single woman first time in Thailand

Jump to last reply

I'm a 46 year old Canadian woman heading to Thailand for the month of November.
I've traveled all over the world but never for a month by myself. First time in Asia as well.
I hear Thailand is relatively safe, but any tips on single travel are appreciated.

My itinerary is still in flexible state other than few flights.
Saving Bangkok to the end of my trip I will spend the first week in Chiang Mai.
Then flying to Krabi for 5 days, 4 days in Oa Nang before hopping onto ferry to Ko Lanta for week..
My last 5 days will be spent exploring Bangkok.

Few questions to those of you with experience..
-I want to do several snorkeling excursions and I would prefer smaller less crowded boats and places. Any recommendations? From Krabi, Oa Nang or Ko Lanta
-Evenings wondering around towns by myself. Any safety issues I should be aware of? Provided I use common sense..
-Hotel safes. Are they safe? And hotel staff. How careful do I need to be with leaving stuff in my room?
-Taxis etc. I will be using them on my own. Safety issues?
- Scooter rentals. Never driven one, will that be an issue? Figured I've sailed around the world, how hard can driving a scooter be ;-) I would not rent one in the bigger cities, mostly for getting around to beaches etc in smaller places.
-Is there a singles forum or any other place I could connect with others on their own?
Or any particular restaurant/bar I can visit and hope to connect with likeminded people.
It would be nice to have company every now and then.

Any advice and information would be greatly appreciated! I'm really looking forward to this trip and want to make it as easy and worry free as possible.
