Should I book rooms in advance for Nov travel??Hi, We are going to be Phuket, Krabi, Phi Phi, Lanta starting Nov 17th for about 10 days..
Two of us travelling.. we are going to book the first night in Phuket.. and thinking of not booking anything after that.. Is it going to be alot of hassle finding places to stay??
we are not too picky.. but not the kind who can sleep on the beach either!

2As usual, up to you.
In my earlier days, I used to book only the first days and then went on my own. That changed 5 years ago when I found out that the best places were almost always booked out. So now I use to book my places ahead. These days you can sometimes make good bargains on pages like bookings.com or agoda.
Having said that, I have to mention that there are real gems out there, you won't find on any pages or in books. So if you don't mind walking around with your bag on the back searching for a place to sleep, just do it. You will find a room.
I prefer to book my places ahead, so I know where to go. But that is mainly because I don't have unlimited holidays.
My worst experience was in Malaysia at the Cameron Highlands, where all nice places were booked out and I had to stay with my girlfriend in a tiny, noisy double room with shared bathroom. We could not sleep the whole night, because the crowd was really really noisy.
