Travelling with Children

Posted by saljones2012 on 25/2/2015 at 00:59

Hi everyone, We are hoping to visit Thailand later on this year with our two young children. We've been to other places in SE Asia, but without the kids. We thought that Thailand would be the best place to start introducing them to Asia. Fingers crossed! I was wondering a few things: 1. Can anyone recommend any trekking companies in the north that specialise in light trips with kids? We don't mind if it's Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai. 2. Is taking kids on night trains a completely ridiculous ...

stray dog licked me on koh phagnan. do I need a rabies injection?

Posted by dangerzone15 on 1/3/2015 at 23:38

So a stray dog just randomly licked my leg on koh phagnan and I'm wondering should I get an injection for this? I washed the area within 5 minutes with 2 alcohol wipes but what concerns me is that I have a mosquito bite right at the area where the dog licked. It is a fresh mosquito bite as in it was bleeding a small bit when I rubbed against it with the alcohol wipes. What should I do? And can I even get this injection on koh phagnan? ...

Hi, So I arrived in Koh Phagnan today and have a flight from Surat Thani booked on Friday, It leaves at 1.00p.m so ideally i'd have to be at the airport by 11.45a.m at the latest.

Visas and return or onward flights

Hi, Can anyone tell me if I can cross on land from Thailand to Laos without proof of an onward flight? More and more we meet up against check in desk officials who will not let us board unless we have "onward flights". When we are travelling without long term plans and definite dates this is becoming a real pain. We want to cross land borders from Thailand to Laos, Laos to Vietnam, Vietnam to Cambodia and Cambodia to Thailand before returning to the UK. Do we need the trouble of ful ...

Confusion over 30 day stay

Posted by dangerzone15 on 27/2/2015 at 12:26

So, my issue is that I arrived in Thailand on the 11th of this month - which means by their law i'm allowed stay until the 12th of march (30 days). But if I leave before then as im planning (on the 7th march) for 4 days to kuala lumpur and return on the 11th of march, will there be any issues? I.e will they just count me returning as part of the original 30 days or will I be granted a "fresh" 30 day stay upon re-entry? ...
