Not a regular destination I know, but if anyone has information/recommendations about parks, beaches, accom, cultural interests - whatever - feel free to post! I'll be driving down the Central Coast from Hua Hin, so anything along the way would be good to know too. BTW, I've done extensive internet research, so I'm really looking for personal suggestions and experiences. Cheers! ...

House to Rent for month

Posted by billbevan01 on 21/9/2009 at 01:55

Hi, my partner and me are returning to Thailand with our 6 month old baby. We're looking to stay in a couple of places for at least one month in each location. We'd like to stay in a small semi-rural location in the north with access to walks and in a quiet beach with some snorkelling and walking. We've been thinking of Chiang Rai and Koh Lanta but wonder if there are other places worth considering? Is Pai worth looking into? We're looking to avoid the high malarial risk areas near the borde ...

Cotton weaving in the south

Apart from the industry on Ko Yo in Songkhla Province, does anyone know of any other cotton-weaving industries along the southern gulf area? I guess somewhere between Bangkok and Surat Thani - Nakhon Si Thammarat - I don't think we'll be going down as far as Songkhla. ...

questions about water purification

Posted by briep on 20/9/2009 at 15:14

I'm heading to Thailand for my first time in a couple weeks and I want to know what the best water purification method is. I'm wondering if the tablets or the drops change the taste of the water, and how long you have to leave them in before the water is safe to drink. Also, is the UV method (Steripen) worth paying for? How dangerous is it to drink the water in Thailand? Should I be worried about ice cubes in drinks? ...

The south - Slow and cheap in the month of May?

Posted by fliplap on 16/9/2009 at 19:11

A friend and I will spend 30ish days backpacking up through southern Thailand on our way from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok in May of 2010. Budget and time constraints are keeping us out of the north unfortunately. We're slow travelers and like to camp (will have tent). We like to walk and trek and aren't really partiers. We don't mind if the resorts are closed as long as there's somewhere to stay and somewhere to eat. I poked around the forums but didn't see any solid info on where to be in M ...

Trang islands in the beg. of November?

Posted by boleslav on 18/9/2009 at 00:12

I am looking at the weather charts and it seems that it's not such a great idea to visit the Trang islands in the first two weeks of November, after all. They seem to be so perfect for laid back vacation, with snorkeling, no crowds.... Being stuck, can you, please, advise 1/alternative or 2/if you think that it's still worth going, let me know. The question how to get there from Trang remains. thank you. ...
