Posted by georgai on 26/11/2008 at 12:25

Online ferry booking?

Posted by shakester on 17/11/2008 at 15:45

Hi fishers after a long disconnect from all things travel I am getting a FEW days off so am hopping to Thailand. Quick question: I fly into Phuket at night (arriv around 7.30pm). I suspect by the time I get to where I am crashing for the night (Karon beach), it will be about 10pm. I need to get out on the morning ferry to Railay (i've checked, since its peak season it seems there is a ferry direct). the only problem is that I arrive too late to go to an agency and buy the next morning's ti ...

Ko Lipe - various questions!

Posted by tracylee on 26/11/2008 at 05:17

Hi- I'll be vacationing in Thailand and was planning on going to Ko Lipe, as I heard it's not quite as nasty touristy as some other places. However - I also heard that it's full of construction at the moment; can anyone provide more info on this?? Also, any suggestions of where to stay? I'd prefer a quiet place with a nice beach. And, finally, just been reading that Hat Yai may be dangerous to pass through, and there are tensions down south. Should I not go there, and instead head some ...

2 weeks in Thailand/Laos - help needed!

Posted by hjf456 on 22/11/2008 at 22:51

My girlfriend and I have just booked return flights to Bangkok from the UK for a total of 16 nights – arriving on Feb 22 2009. We currently have no further plans, and after spending a couple of days looking at guidebooks, various sites online, and particularly this excellent website, I thought I’d post a message here asking for assistance in planning a rough itinerary. Ideally, we are looking to spend a week doing the culture/trek/activity stuff somewhere in the north (or even better, ...

Last minute trip to the Islands!!

But HELP! I have no idea which one to go to! My dad is coming out to visit me in Sydney for Christmas, but our plans of renting a campervan and traveling up the coast has been crushed due to the extreme lack of campervans available...argh!! I digress... I looked online and found some cheap flights to Phuket so here we come! We are both big divers so we want an island with some great diving and competitive rates. I did my open water on Koh Tao, so I'd like to see some place differ ...

Kata

Posted by jamesthailand on 16/11/2008 at 15:52

Definitely the best spot in Phuket. It's got a few bars but is not as hectic as Patong. Go to Kata Noi Beach, which is south of Kata beach itself but much less busier. Check out Kata Night Bazaar, it has a bar with a swimming pool which is fun. If youre looking for a cheap decent place to stay go to Kata High Viewpoint Guest House. It doesn't actually have a view but you get a room with cable tv and loads of english channels and a fridge for 500 baht a night. Take a left just after the ...
