Domestic Flights - whats the deal?

Posted by katie304 on 17/8/2007 at 21:43

Hi, I will be going to Thailand for 2 weeks and would like to visit both Chiang Mai and Krabi (and surrounds). I plan on taking domestic flights between the two and also back to Bangkok. Should I book them now before I leave or while in Thailand? Since I will only be there for 2 weeks, I don't want to worry about availability but also don't want to pay too much. Anyone have recommendations/suggestions? Also tips on the best airline will be helpful! Thanks, Katie ...

Nong Khai to Phimai: how to get there

Posted by reenakukreja on 31/7/2007 at 19:52

Hi everyone, I am planning to travel from Nong Khai to Phimai. WHat is the best way to reach Phimai from there? I know it is close to Khorat. As well, does anyone have recommendations about a place to stay there? My travel plan is to go to Sukhothai, then on to Chiang Mai , Nong Khai and after that I am pretty much open to suggestions about other locations. I do like the culture and history stuff. Do you think that doing Sukhothai and Phimai (perhaps attempting to go to Phanom Rung) is t ...
