Self Drive Suvarnabhumi to Kanchanaburi

Posted by ano_1 on 8/1/2010 at 05:49

Hi, Can I please get some opinions on the feasability of picking up a car at Suvarnabmi Airport and driving to Kanchanaburi . I have previously driven in Thailand but not in any area that would be akin to Bangkok! I have to move 5 people from Suvarnabumi to Kanchanaburi and then when in Kanchanaburi intend renting a car to get about. If driving from airport to Kanchanaburi is doable, seems easier option than bussing it. Your thoughts most welcome Ano Australia ...

Phuket to Khao Sok in afternoon

I am trying to get from Phuket to Khao Sok at around 4:30 pm on Jan. 3, after all the buses have departed (I will be coming from Phi Phi afternoon ferry). I would prefer not to pay 3000B for a taxi. I saw online that there are minivans near Montree Resotel going to Surat Thani from Phuket that leave at a later time.

Getting Around Ko Tao

Posted by alexrlynn on 5/1/2010 at 14:53

I am heading to to Ko Pha Ngan at the end of January for the Full Moon Party and then to Ko Tao to relax/recover. I was wondering about getting around Ko Tao. I want to stay in a nice, relaxing area and Chalok Ban Kao seems perfect, but I still want to enjoy some good nightlife. All things considered (crowd from FMP, cost, safety, etc.) will it be easy to get to Mae Haad from Chalok Ban Kao at night? Also, any personal recommendations on accommodations would be helpful and welcome ...

Received some tragic news this afternoon that Torgeir Norling (better known as Tor), a Norwegain journo, based in Bangkok for at least the last decade, was killed yesterday when he was hit by a bus near the Erawan Shrine. Tor had reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Timor, Burma and Aceh (among others) and had setup the excellent RainDogs Bar in Bangkok. We'd known him for some time. Tor leaves behind his wife Jum and young son. He was 37. The exact circumstances of the accident are unclear ...

Unbelievable Tourist

Posted by Canudigit on 31/12/2009 at 10:48

My friend, knowing I'm headed for the Kingdom, just phoned to warn me that her brother-in-law from Canada, who'd been to Thailand before, was supposed to stay 3 months, but is back after 3 weeks. He left because someone "tried to run him over with a car, twice" and that he found the atmosphere dangerous. I'm waiting for details, why it happened, why they didn't just go to another town. Will fill in details if the victim calls me back. ...

Accomodation Nakhon Sawan - Ban Donmai Resort

Posted by AbgAcid on 3/1/2010 at 08:21

We are a group of travelers riding motorcylcles and travel extensively. The distance from Chieng Mai to Bangkok is relatively too large to cover within a day, and thus needed a mid stop somewhere for overnight. For this the Ban Donmai resort is the the best bet. Relatively new, its location is a few km just off the hiway 1. Well contstructed bungalows, very quiet with some nice landscapes. Aircon bungalows. split level type were only 400 bh. It comes with TV, hot shower and believe it or not ...
