My friend has found a very reasonable direct flight to Bangkok in August but it's with an airline we haven't heard of - Eva Air.

Koh Chang to Hat Lek

Posted by swag on 16/6/2008 at 10:51

Hi all,a couple of questions on the above subject.Can you arrange a speedboat to do this trip or do you have to head back via Trat. I was on Koh Chang in March 06 and after speaking to a couple of travel agents it seemed most minibuses were heading from the island direct to the airport.We were also quoted prices upwards of 2,000 thb to get to Trat by our own minivan. As we are heading to Cambodia there must be a cheaper way of doing this leg to head to Sihanoukville. Regards ...

Hi To start with, very nice and informative site!! I am planning to finish my trip through thailand by hitting one of the thai islands. this for about 8 days, dont want to do too much of hopping btween islands, and ko tao will be my preference.

Questions about Backpacking

Posted by CharFlorica on 8/6/2008 at 05:13

Hello, I have backpacked Europe before, and I know that we often left our packs in the hostel for the day whenever we went sightseeing. We always had our valuables with us in our daypacks when we were out and about. I was just curious whether or not this is the same deal with Thailand and the such.I don't imagine it to be as safe, but I have no idea what so ever. Do you always carry your packs, or is it safe enough to leave it in the guest houses. ...
