Posted by Brad900 on 9/9/2008 at 22:09

I am digging through all of the data here, reading my guidebook, and trying my best to find an itinerary. It is a bit overwhelming! So ask for all of your patience with me if these are dumb questions of I have missed the previously posted answers... Here are some details about me and my trip: I am in my 30's- meaning I don't want to hear the thump of the Bass all night ;) I will be traveling alone.

tell me where to go!

Posted by bananapunk on 7/9/2008 at 18:14

I'm very puzzled right now. I'm arriving in Kuala Lumpur on the 17th of october and from there I want to take a flight to some nice paradise island for 2 weeks. Now, there's the WEATHER factor. What island is the driest in this season? I was going to go to Kho Phangan, but after reading weather forecast i have doubts :|. Every website says something different. Does the rain season mean it will be raining or overcast most of the day, or just for an hour or two? So far my best picks are : ...

Political tensions in Thailand and brewing coup. To go or not to go HELP

Posted by firsttimetraveller on 12/9/2008 at 18:17

I was planning a trip to Thailand for my 21st. I planned a 2 week trip to thailand for the second half of december and I was so excited about finally doing some travel. However, the mother of my original travel friend has asked her to bail out because of what is now happening in Thailand. She has been convinced that there is a coup brewing in Thailand and I agreed that the worst thing that could happen on this trip is to be in the middle of a political disaster. However, now I am a little de ...

Thai islands January- island hopping

Posted by maliamaui on 13/8/2008 at 15:20

My husband and I have about 4-5 nights at the end of our SE Asia trip around the 14th January 09 (I know--planning way ahead). We were looking at going around the Ko Lipe or Ko Lanta area. It looks from the weather map like it is drier in that region in January? I'm from Maui so we're looking to do more than just hang on the beach. We would like to do day trips to other islands, snorkel and hike through jungle or to viewpoints of other islands, and hopefully be where tourists do not severe ...
