Cave lodge, kayaking and caving, anyone interested?

Posted by Louw on 18/12/2009 at 23:07

Hi all, We are heading to Cave lodge in Sop pong (Pang Mapha) 15 February 2010 to 19 February and we were wondering if there's anyone out there that wants to form a group to do kayaking and caving. Because we are only two people so far, we need 4 more. We want to do the 2 day kayaking trip. http://www.cavelodge.com/twoday.htm We are also going to do the rafting through Tham Nam Lod (Lod Cave). 300 000 Swifts(birds) fly into the cave at sunset. Its a world phenomena. If you don't know w ...

Tailor for a tall woman in Bangkok?

Posted by truesd10 on 21/4/2009 at 01:08

Hey guys, I had a question. I will be in Thailand starting in July for 6 weeks. I have been to thailand before and last time I was there my boyfriend and I had some clothes made. His were AMAZING - great tailoring and the material was nice. But mine were not tailored right at all. I realized afterward the shop was not use to woman clothing. So this time I want to find a shop that is comfortable making woman clothes for someone who is 6'3 with an athletic build. I am really looking to ge ...

Chiang Rai longtail day trip

Posted by mmeckel on 20/12/2009 at 23:48

I'm in Chiang Rai for a couple of days and am wondering if it's possible to take a longtail up river to a village, get dropped off for a few hours, and catch a boat ride back without having to pre-arrange the return boat ride. We tried talking to someone at the pier but only got offers for a tour. Lonely Planet mentions that you can do self-guided hikes so I'm just wondering if anyone can help shed some light on this for us. ...

I am 23 years old and work in Alaska 6 months out of the year. I was looking to explore Thailand after I got done working there as a way to blow off steam.

Ko Samui for Christmas and Ko Phangan for New Year!

Posted by katiewilliams88 on 20/12/2009 at 16:16

Hey guys, I've been in Ko Samui for 5 days now and it only seems to be full of couples and families are there any single travellers out there keen on meeting up to celebrate Christmas? My hostel is a bit out on the way at the moment, which has stopped me getting about a bit and put me off staying late at night, but on Wednesday I move further down the coast. I don't know if anyone is struggling to find accomodation in Ko Phangan for New Year, but I have stupidly paid for a twin room, so wo ...

Shambara boutique hostel

Posted by Louw on 15/12/2009 at 16:58

Hi all, I'm having great difficulty in booking a double fan room in Shambara Boutique hostel just off Khao San rd, Bangkok. Our booking is only for Feb 2010. I've phoned them a few times, but each time they put the phone down while I'm speaking. They were quite friendly though. I've also emailed them about 7 times over the past two weeks, only my 1st email got answered. So I've gone ahead and booked the room on HostelWorld for the 6th -8th, but now the 1st day, our arrival date, (5th Fe ...

Massage course in Chiang Mai

Posted by shadek on 21/12/2009 at 01:47

Hi all, I've been thinking about taking a 5-day massage course in Chiang Mai at the Wat Pho branch there. Has anyone done it there or at any other place in CM? According to my initial plans, I'm planning on spending about 12 days all together in CM, but not sure if I would be bored during the massage course, since it takes 6 hours a day and after that I'm afraid there will be little to do. I'm not looking for parties, will be travelling on my own, but wouldn't like to spend the five nigh ...

Hi, I am travelling to Thailand from Australia with a 4 day stop in Singapore. I will be flying into Bkk and I am travelling with my boyfriend who has never been out of Australia.

First time in Thailand...HELP!

Posted by Janaver on 12/12/2009 at 02:49

Hi, I just booked my flights to Bangkok, arriving on 12 Feb, at 12.00 (lunch) and returning back home on 2 March. I need to be in Chiang Mai from 14 to 26 Feb. I would prefer to travel to Chiang Mai by train. So my plan was to take a sleeper train on the same day (12th), arrive in CM in the morning on the 13th or stay a night in Bangkok and travel to CM the next day. I am not bringing any clothes with me except what I will wear so I'll need to go to some market to buy something. T ...

Calling mobile or cell phones in Kanchanaburi

I hope someone can help me with a particularly frustrating challenge. I am trying to call a tour company (Toi's Tours) in Kanchanaburi from my home in the US. The phone number on their website in 081 856 5523. When I call it, I get a recording saying that "this number is not assigned." Their fax number, 034 514 209 gives me a fax tone when I call it, but I don't have access to a reasonably inexpensive international fax machine. I tried emailing then and have gotten no response back yet. ...

I'm in Bangkok at the moment, and tommorrow I want to make a move to the islands. What is the best way of doing this without flying? I've spent too much time in planes and airports. I'm staying just off Khoa San Rd, and am thinking of the sleeper train. Please help with fares(tuk tuk,taxi, train), departure times, and travel times. I don't want to use a Khoa san rd travel agent if I can help it, too many horror stories. I also don't want to be ripped off by the drivers, I still look too well k ...
