Feasibility of trip alone  (Asia: Thailand: Southern_Provinces)

I am trying to plan a climbing trip in Jan/Feb 09. I don't speak thai and would be traveling alone. I am thinking I will be in thailand for several weeks and australia for several weeks.

In Thailand, is the language barrier a big issue, or would I be able to safely travel alone to a climbing destination from the Krabi airport?

If thailand is not feasible, then I would shift my plans to spend more time in australia - Arapilies and Grampians.

I tried to post on Simon Foley's forum site but there were errors, and I couldn't create a new profile.

Any advice is appreciated.

Definitely no problem travelling alone in southern thailand. One of the safest places in the world to travel.

Language barrier is also not an issue as pretty much everyone in the tourist areas speaks english.

However, do yourself a favour and pick up a thai-english dictionary and learn the basics before you go. I've always received a considerably warmer welcome by putting in a little effort.

I am also hoping to go to Thailand in Jan/Feb. Haven't booked anything yet, but maybe we could meet up in Bangkok...I'm a little worried about travelling alone too.
I've climbed in Australia...so I can also give you some tips for Arapiles.
