Ko Lanta with kids

Posted by racheltanya on 2/2/2007 at 05:42

Hi, We're travelling to Thailand next winter and after spending some time in BKK with friends, we're planning to go on and stay in Ko Lanta. Can anyone recommend accomodation that would suit a family with two kids under ten and two adults who still enjoy a drink and chilled out vibe at the end of the day (that's us . . )? We've got some money to spend, but not a fortune, and wouldn't feel at home on a big resort. Any ideas gratefully received. Thanx!! Rach ...

20 things to think about before arriving in Thailand

Posted by khunwilko on 19/3/2007 at 16:19

Here are 50 things to think about when visiting Thailand… 1. Bring a cell phone “unblocked” and buy a Thai SIM card for it on arrival, they’re cheap (apprx. 250 baht) and include some credit already on them - e.g. - International calls to UK are about 5 - 8baht per min… 2. Money - Bring ATM and/or credit cards. - check fees and tell your bank your are going abroad. - Take Travellers cheques only as back-up. Bring very little cash – you tend to get a better rate of exchange here ...

Getting around Ko Pha Ngan and accommodation

Posted by sugarplum on 18/3/2007 at 12:43

We're still undecided about where to stay but so far most people seem to recommend Bottle Beach (but that's probably too inaccessable), Ao Plaaylaem or Thong Nai Pan Noi. How easy is it to get from these places to the Full Moon Party and to Golden Light resort now known as Holiday beach resort (kite surf school) - are taxis available at all hours? Most postings about the accommodation are quite old - so recommendations about accommodation also very welcome - a good aircon bungalow is what we're ...

Flights to Phuket...

Posted by annamac on 13/3/2007 at 07:15

My flight back home leaves from Phuket - and because I'll be up North just before, I'm flying straight down from Chang Mai. My dilemma is this - my flight home is at 10.30pm, so do you think it's unwise to get a flight from Chaing Mai to Phuket that lands at 2.45pm on the same day? Or should I plan to get to Phuket, the day before? If so, where's the best, closest place to stay near the airport? ...

Phuket - tourist trap or worth a look?

Posted by Sparkle on 6/1/2007 at 17:08

We live in Spain - about 20 mins from Benidorm, which is a terrible tourist trap, and we hate it, but up and down the coast theres some wonderful places which are more spanish than Benidorm. We're planning our Honeymoon trip for April/May and one place we'd written off was Phuket, mainly 'cos we don't want to be in the tourist masses.... are we right to do this or should we reconsider parts of Phuket?

Going to Pai

Posted by rdennes on 12/3/2007 at 08:51

Hello. I am going to stay in Pai again in a couple of days and wonder if anyone has been to gasalong river lodge recently. I stayed 3 years ago and it was run by a Thai guy and his Japanese wife, who were awesome. Now I am on an uber budget I wonder if it is too expensive, and even if it is the same couple running the show. Any suggestions for other cheap guesthouses a bit removed from Pai town itself.
