On Koh Pha Ngan ... anyone recommend a good beach?

Posted by cubedweller on 8/3/2008 at 09:40

Hi, Currently I'm on Haad Yao but I would like to stay somewhere with a little more action... I was thinking about Haad Rin but that may be too hectic. Can anyone recommend anywhere? Basically, the crowd is a bit old (mostly families and older couples) on Haad Yao at this time of year, so a beach with a little *younger* feel would be great. I'm 26 and traveling alone if that helps... any advice would be great. ~Eric ...

Langkawi to Ko Lipe - pls help!

Posted by wessatong on 7/3/2008 at 16:36

Hi all, I'm planning to head to Ko Lipe from Langkawi on the 14th. My questions are: 1) Which ferry would be best for me to take there, the one from Telaga Harbour or the Tigerline ferry from the Kuah Jetty? 2) I know that I'll clear Malaysian immigration at Telaga, but if I depart from Kuah Jetty, do I clear Malaysian immigration from the jetty as well? 3) I read from the Telaga website that all visitors to Ko Lipe have to clear Thai immigration at some resort there. Is that true? W ...

Phuket/Railay in the Rainy Season?

Posted by dawei on 7/3/2008 at 13:42

I'm planning a month in Thailand from May to June. I'm really excited about exploring the rock-climbing and surfing in the Phuket and Railay areas but I'm worried about the climate. I would rather not go to Phuket during the busy season due to an aversion to high prices and huge crowds, but am I going to suffer even more if I go during the rainy season? Rock climbing doesn't go over so well when mixed with rain. I'm looking for a first hand account of what kind of weather I have to look forward ...

Quiet Thailand Beaches

Posted by dande on 7/2/2008 at 17:50

We are seriously considering a holiday on Thailand islands towards the end of the year. I know it’s a long time ahead but there seems to be so much choice and the area is a closed book to us. So many islands, so many ferries, so many ways of reaching them via Bangkok! In the past few years we have enjoyed holidays, in Kerala, Sri Lanka, Zanzibar and the Andaman Islands. We love quiet locations, superb beaches, good snorkelling (preferably from the beach) and although of an age when co ...

Analysis Paralysis - advice on an island

Posted by trudat on 27/2/2008 at 04:38

Help! My husband and I planning a trip to Thailand in late may for 10 days to 2 weeks - a few days in Bangkok, the rest in the islands. For the life of me, I can't seem to settle on an island. We want to go somewhere not too touristy, but maybe with a little town or village. We were originally thinking of Koh Mook (Sivalai), but it seems like there isn't much on the island and I'm afraid that the rougher seas would prevent us from going on day trips to other islands. I also wonder if we should a ...

Kanchanaburi --> Surat Thani?

Posted by susan32 on 26/2/2008 at 23:52

Hi everybody, I will be traveling to Kanchanaburi in August and from there, I plan to head to the beaches. It seems like the only way I can get there overland is by first returning to Bangkok and then taking an overnight train to Surat Thani. If possible, I'd like to avoid returning to Bangkok. Is there any way that I can do this? For example, catching the overnight train in another location? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks! Susan ...

An island close to Bangkok - Ko Samet

Posted by somtam2000 on 29/2/2008 at 10:25

We've just added a new feature story to Travelfish -- "A weekend on Ko Samet". While it has its fair share of detractors, for a short weekend break from Bangkok, Samet is difficult to beat. It's an ideal spot to kill a few days while you're waiting for a visa to be issued in Bangkok, or if you're just looking for a few easy days on the beach. This feature story accompanies out new coverage on Ko Samet which has been completely re-researched (new map is on the way!) -- it's easily the most up- ...
