Ko Lanta or Ko Lipe for NYE?

Posted by cessie on 21/10/2015 at 13:04

Hiya - we are 2 x single 35 year old girls coming to Thailand for NYE. We have time for a few days in PhiPhi and are then trying to decide where to go next. Both Lanta and Lipe have been recommended, but we don't want anywhere too too quiet - we want to be meeting and hanging out with other travellers. We are not looking for CRAZY nightlife, but just a few lively bars if we fancy a nite out. Both places look amazing, but I have conflicting reports as to nightlife. It will obviously be peak ...

If I head that way I was thinking of then heading south into Nam Tok for trekking possibilities. I don't have the time ...

Sprained ankle in Bangkok!

Posted by emmiebebe on 25/10/2015 at 14:10

So after using this site religiously in the lead up to my 8 week trip through Southeast Asia, my first post comes after spraining my ankle 2 days in. Just the worst luck. I've been really trying to tough it out, but after a day and a half of sucking it up the swelling is even worse, and I'm now worried about doing real damage that could ruin the rest of my trip. So I guess my question is twofold. First, does anyone have any suggestions for things to do in Bangkok that don't require a lot of wa ...

Getting to Ao Phang-Nga from Krabi or Railay?

Posted by commadon on 13/9/2015 at 23:37

I am flying into Krabi Airport in late October, and want to do a kayaking tour of Phang Nga Bay the day after I arrive. I'm having trouble figuring out where I should stay and how I should get to Phang Nga Bay from Krabi. I could stay in Krabi Town, Phang Nga Town , or Yao Noi/Yao Yai. Later in my trip, I will also be staying at Railay for a few days, and that is an option as well. So, what is the best place to tour Phang Nga Bay from? Is it easy to organize something from Railay and/or Krab ...

Bangkok airport arrival late night

So I'm a traveler from the USA and will arrive Bangkok airport around midnight. I'll need to book a hotel for one night nearby, and various hotels have included airport transfers. But I won't have a phone that works in Thailand until sometime the next day, when I can hopefully buy a Thai phone chip. It's always nice to have someone waiting to meet you at the airport, but as far as I can tell, all of the hotels ask for a phone call before they send their transport out. Should I just plan on taki ...

Songkhla for a few days, or still a bit unsafe.

Posted by Jadeknots on 13/10/2015 at 06:26

Hi. We're currently in Krabi, and we have accommodation booked in a few weeks in Melaka. We thought we'd like to slowly make our way down, stopping at a couple of places on the way over a week. Songkhla appealed but we were unsure how safe it would be, and onward travel the same. It seems there is continual trouble there. Is it serious enough for us to think about avoiding it? Most posts here are a few years old. Any current updates? Any alternative suggestions. Not interested in nightlife. ...
