TIGER TEMPLE UPDATE PLEASE

Posted by razztravel on 22/7/2013 at 11:02

July 2013 A major highlight in my family's upcoming visit to Thailand in November 2013 was to be a visit to the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi. I am bitterly disappointed at all of the negative posts that detail dreadful living conditions for these and other animals and mistreatment of the tigers, written by visitors and significantly by traveling volunteers who have worked at the property and "see it all" while there. One thing though, most of the posts are years old and I would like t ...

Itinerary help

Posted by Zach on 1/8/2013 at 10:35

Hi there! My girlfriend and I are traveling to Thailand this coming February and it would be of great help if anyone could give some advice as to where to go. We will travel for 2 - 3 weeks on a student's budget, however would like to splurge for a few nights in a beach resort. Despite us both being active individuals, we would like the holiday to be relaxing and largely beach based. I know there's a LOT to do and see in Thailand, however I've always preferred spending at least a few days in ...

month on the beach in the fall

Posted by gregatsea on 28/7/2013 at 21:28

Hey All, I'm looking for one maybe two people to travel with from the states to Thailand, and basically sit on the beach for a month. I'm flexible on dates but sometime in the fall. Nothing too fancy, a cheap vrbo rental or something for a homebase should do. I've travelled extensively in Europe and the Caribbean/Latin America, just looking for a change of scenery. I want to visit a school friend in Bangkok at some point but other than that, lead the way if you like. Me - mid 30's mariner w ...

Is traveling Southern Thailand/Malaysia in September a bad idea due to rainy season?

Posted by adaminasia on 22/7/2013 at 23:32

Hi - If you are in the area or have been I'd love your advice! I'll be starting a 3-month solo trip through southeast Asia starting in early September. My flight gets into Singapore, and I was originally planning on taking a flight from Singapore to Bangkok to do Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam/Laos, but have recently thinking that as long as I'm in Singapore it may be worth trekking overland through Malaysia and southern Thailand to get to Bangkok. Do you have thoughts? I think it would be a fun ...

Female Traveling Solo in December - Tips or Travel Buddies?

Posted by emc on 12/11/2012 at 04:51

Hi all, I'm a 25 year old woman traveling in Thailand for the first time. I will be traveling solo. After reading an article on this site, I'm getting a little nervous. It seems that the islands (at least) are not a safe place for women traveling alone. Is this true? And if so, are there islands that are safer vs. others? Will I be safe as long as I walk home with another female companion at night? I am also Asian, so I don't know if that makes it slightly safer, as I may not "stick out&qu ...

Help outlining a 3 week stay in Thailand in October

Posted by FreeSombrero on 22/7/2013 at 14:14

So me and my girlfriend are flying into Bangkok Oct. 2nd. This is her first time and my second. Obviously, I wish we had more time. Hell, the 1.5 months I spent in Thailand a few years ago felt grossly insufficient, but they were enough to get me hooked - and I'll take any hit of Thailand that life affords me, at this point. My original thought was, head up north to Pai , which I have the fondest memories of (though I've heard it's gotten more "mainstream", which I assume means more ...

Help Needed With Honeymoon Planning

Posted by marshalmissy on 22/7/2013 at 19:12

I'm going on my honeymoon late March 2014. I'll have 12 days and will start in BKK. I'm thinking a few days in Bangkok is all I need, but not sure where to go from there. My priorities, in order, are: 1. good food (not fancy food, just good local food) 2. culture (temples, cooking class) & sightseeing (food markets, shopping) 3. outdoor activities (snorkel, kayak, beach). I'm not looking for a party or club scene, nothing too commercial or touristy, but don't mind live shows such as Thai bo ...

Help Narrowing Down a 4 week Itinerary -- Thailand Only?

Posted by causticbee on 28/6/2013 at 10:02

Hi everyone! My wife and I (both 30 years old) are flying round-trip to Bangkok in November, and we have a grand total or 28 nights to spend in the area. We are really struggling trying to narrow down an outline of what we may want to see during that time. Initially we considered spending the whole trip in Thailand alone, but lately we have also considered spending some time in Laos and/or Cambodia as well. The only thing that is certain is that we'd like to be in Chiang Mai around Loy Krathong. ...
