Help with a trip to Thailand/Cambodia

Posted by mic59 on 27/1/2009 at 18:11

I've been to Thailand twice now and enjoyed myself immensely. Next year(or possibly the year after that) I'm going to Thailand again but thinking of a side trip to Cambodia. At the moment I have very little idea of what I'll do. The only thing I am pretty sure of is that I'd take 6 weeks holiday, enter Thailand on a 30-day visa, travel around Thailand a bit and then go into Cambodia. After a while in Cambodia I'd re-enter Thailand(I should be OK with the 15-day visa on re-entry); see a bit more ...

Accommodation on Ko Pha Ngan

Posted by supernickymoreton on 19/1/2009 at 18:31

Hi, Planning on going to Ko Pha Ngan from around the 5-13 February, but I've tried booking at a few places on line and they're all booked up (tried doing it on sawadee.com). How likely are we going to be able to get a room by walking up to places when we get there? Is it worth calling the places I've already tried? Are we going to end up sleeping on the beach?! Don't really mind if we can just walk up and get a place, but it's our first time in Thailand (set off on Friday) and it mig ...

Visa confusion

Posted by joejowers on 22/1/2009 at 04:07

hi, I am flying to BKK on 3rd March, and Flying out of BKK on 20th May. I was planning on staying in Thailand for 60 days, then visiting cambodia for a few days, then spending the remaining 15 days back in thailand before i fly from BKK. As i cannot get a visa on arrival as i have no proof of flying from thailand within the 30 day limit, presume i need to get a 60 day tourist visa. I have seen it cost £28 per entry so would i need to get 2 entries? or could i use the 60 day one entry to ...
