Posted by ruth56 on 30/4/2007 at 01:22

Can anyone advise of accomodation near the Nong Phai district of Ubon R? We are visiting my son who lives ther and he tells me that the only hotel he can think of anywhere near is the Nevada or Sunee Tower neither of which I can find reveiws for! Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am travelling with my 74yr old mother so a degree of comfort is pretty essential. Understand that from the centre of Ubon to this district we would need a songtheow and a motorbike taxi, so central is not a good o ...

Hi there, on 25th June I will catch my flight from italy to bangkok and then, after 2-3 days in BKK, I will catch another flight from BKK to Burma.

Which Thai Island?

Posted by dave07 on 2/3/2007 at 20:09

Hi there, I am planning on travelling to Thailand mid-May for a week or so on my own. My main goal is to spend the time relaxing on an island beach (or inside a bungalow if it is raining!) rather than 'sight see', but I am at a loss as to which island to choose? Ideally, id prefer one that wasn't merely a cove for loved-up couples, or one that is too wild and loud - something in between would be perfect! Its not a huge issue, but just to check - I appreciate that May is the start of t ...

Great guest house in Sukhothai

Posted by Piombino on 27/4/2007 at 13:45

This little gem has to rate as one of the best value B&B's in Thailand. Meao and Malcolm have created a lovely retreat that is less than a 10 minute drive from Old Sukhothai. The location is quiet; a small slice of rural Thailand. The rooms are basic but immaculate, air-conditioned, the pool well maintained, and the hosts incredibly accommodating. We were very happy to find a good sized refrigerator in the room. Breakfast can be brought to the B&B or taken on the terrace of their restaurant in d ...

Bangkok/Ko Chang Questions (10 day trip)

Posted by eslavet on 26/4/2007 at 08:11

Hi, I'm new to travelfish- We're flying into BKK Suvarnabhumi late at night, and want to leave early the next morning for the east coast. (We have only 10 days total in Thailand, so we don't want to waste a lot of time travelling....) So I have a number of questions: 1) Where to stay for one quick night near the airport? 2) What do you think is the quickest way to get to nice beaches/destinations? We're thinking of heading to East Coast/Ko Chang. We're not against buses/trains if they are sce ...

Tailor prices

Posted by CalgaryJen on 15/3/2007 at 01:51

One of my friends wanted me to look into getting her wedding dress (very simple design) custom made in Bangkok. She'll be giving me her sizes and pictures of the design she wants and she does have enough time that if it doesn't work out she can just buy one in Canada. Anyway, my question is: Does anyone know the approx. price of getting a dress made? thanks. ...

Air Con or Fan?

Posted by tails101 on 9/4/2007 at 19:09

Well it's Easter Monday - and don't ask me why, but I suddenly thought I'd stick my personal opinions/experiences about whether to go air-con or not on here! Hope someone may find them useful... feel free to agree or disagree! Bangkok - for me, air con is a must! I love the place but the smog and lack of breeze that seems to exist at all times really does make walking into a non-air con room like walking into a wall of heat! Fans just don't seem to help... Outside of Bangkok I think a lot ...

Thailand June/July--a monumental error?

Posted by jcampbell3 on 4/4/2007 at 07:29

We (wife, two sons aged 13 and 15) are visiting Thailand for ten days in late June/early July. Not the best time of year, I know--but school schedule needs to be accomodated. It's our second visit, first was 20 years ago in February, weather was great. Our plan was to see Bangkok and the north only--are we crazy? I see it is the rainy season but don't know if we'll be flooded, just dealing with two hours a day of rain, combined with sun, or have it be cloudy the whole time or what. We can't ...
