Posted by Louw on 13/12/2009 at 23:43

Guten Tag / สวัสดี / good day fellow travelers! We know there is a minibus service from Phuket town but is there one to Ko Lanta from the Phuket airport?

Long distance bus travel straight after new years?

Posted by samalive on 14/12/2009 at 11:12

I am flying home to Australia from KL in Malaysia on the 6th of Jan. and am hoping to get a flight from Bangkok around the 4th to KL, however I most likely will be celebrating new years with friends a considerable distance away from Bangkok meaning I'll probably be trying to hop on a bus on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd - there isn't much margin for error! ...

Where to stay in Bangkok outside Th. Khao San?

Posted by Pontare on 13/12/2009 at 20:13

Hi! Any hot tips on where to stay in Bangkok for 5 days? I'm a solo traveler, so it would be nice to stay a place where getting to meet people is easy. I've booked two nights at Refill Now, but although it's a great place, it's pretty far from anything happening, and also not to solo-friendly (not many people there last time I went). Th. Khao San is out of the question, as I would like to stay close to the BTS. ...
