Getting to Koh Lipe

Posted by dlewingt on 3/1/2008 at 03:50

My wife and I are planning a trip to Thailand in Feb/08. We plan to visit Koh Lipe and have heard there is a travel advisory for the southern provinces and Hat Yai. Is it as dangerous as the advisory suggests? We were planning to fly into Hat Yai from Bangkok and then take a minibus to Pak Bara. Is there a safer way to get to Pak Bara such as flying into Satun or Padang (Malaysia)? ...

Lamai, Koh Samui

Posted by gogirlgo on 10/1/2008 at 21:53

Gotta tell everyone about how good Lamai is. Last time we went to Chaweng & had a great time but it was too overdone. Lamai is Chaweng ten years ago I guess, Its got everything including great beaches, fantastic night life & good shopping. My boyfriend & I loved the girly bars around the Muy Thai boxing arena near to Macdonalds. The one in the far corner called "Good Luck bar" I think was great fun. It has drop dead gorgeous girls that are real friendly & I had a great time dancing with them on ...

storing luggage in bangkok, any ideas?

Posted by cyndi on 30/11/2007 at 06:49

I think I can store luggage in a locker at the Bangkok airport but I've heard it costs about $3 a day. I'm too cheap for that. I've thought of just leaving it at a guest house or going to the Hualumpong train station from the airport and leaving it there. Someone said storage lockers are about 10-20 baht per day at the train station. Anyone have any tips on what would be the best thing to do? Also, how do I get from the airport to the train station and how long does it take? ...

Hi there, We have 5 days after leaving Bangkok before reaching Chiang Mai. I realize we can't do too much in that time, but I'd like to get some opinions. To those of you who have been to KANCHANBURI+ERAWAN FALLS - AYUTHAYA - SUKHOTHAI and LAMPANG ELEPHANT CAMP which would be on your not to miss list. If it came down to AYUTHAYA or SUKHOTHAI which is more impressive? Thank you for any help and feedback. ...

My friends and I are travelling from Chiang Mai to Phuket and looking for the cheapest way to do so. I'm looking into the option of taking a sleeper train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok and then getting a flight to Phuket from BKK. I've noticed the sleeper train stops at Don Muang at 8am, and there is a flight from Don Muang airport to Phuket at 9.20am. If anyone has been to Don Muang can you please tell me if the airport terminal and train station are close to each other and whether we'd be abl ...
