Websites to find travelmate

Posted by carlakoopman on 23/2/2007 at 13:07

Hi, I will be visiting Thailand (and maybe Laos) from 24 May till 19 June. At the moment I'm traveling alone in Australia, and that's no problem, a lot of people to meet and Australia is not much different as the life I'm used to in Holland. But I'm a bit more insecure about Thailand, and would prefer to travel with someone else. Does anyone know useful websites to find a travelmate? Or do you think I will be fine, traveling alone, because Thailand is quite Western? Kind regards, Carl ...

food on the overnight train to Trang

Posted by sologirl on 10/2/2007 at 09:32

Hi, I"m taking the overnight train from BKK on the 17th to Trang and wondered if I should be stocking up on snacks & meals etc. One hears so many horror stories about the quality of train food (to be avoided at all costs...) I'm not sure how much of a lead time I'll have to go shopping. I arrive into BKK from CM at 12:55 and have till 18:20 to get across town to the train station. Thanks in advance ...

Hello there, greetings. I will be arriving in Chiang Mai late January, staying for one week. My agenda is to visit the Karens hill tribe/some small trekking activity in this trip and take it easy in Chiang Mai. I am considering going to Chiang Dao, staying at the ChiangDao Nest 1.

2 weeks in Thailand

Posted by Kazzer00 on 16/2/2007 at 23:41

Hi all, We're travelling to Thailand for 2 weeks. Hoping to go to Phi Phi for a 4-5 and then over to Ko Samui for a couple of days and about 5-6 days in Ko Tao. Looking for a relaxing-ish holiday but we are unable to go for more than 2 weeks. Should we leave out Phi Phi and go to the islands on the East side instead? Or is 2 weeks enough. Don't want to go home feeling exhausted from cramming things in. Any advice greatly appreciated! Kaz ...

Bed Bugs

Posted by tati53 on 18/2/2007 at 15:19

I'm leaving to SE Asia in a few days and know that I will run into bed bugs somewhere along the way. Is there any way to prevent them from biting? They seem very resistant to any normal bug spray/DEET product. If I cover the hostel/guesthouse bed (mattress and sheets) in large, plastic garbage bags and sleep in my silk sleep sack will I be safer? Are the bugs able to climb the slick plastic? Yeah, I know I sound crazy, but any advice you could provide would be most appreciated. ...

Hi everyone, I'm getting my vacinations done this week for my travels to SE Asia. I'll be landing in Bangkok on April 16th and in the following two months I'll be back-packing around Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. I don't have an exact route planned as of yet, but I do know I'll be in the maleria areas and I'm sure I'll have some exposure to certain illnesses that I wouldn't usually be here at home. If you have any advice on what vacinations i should get, and also what course of ...

Lamai or Bophut?

Posted by newbie419 on 11/2/2007 at 01:51

Hi all... I'm wondering if people could give me their thoughts on Lamai beach vs. Bophut on Koh Samui. I have definate plans to stay in Maenam Beach for 3 nights and have 4 nights to fill at either Lamai or Bophut Village/Beach (specifically I have reservations at both Lamai Wanta and The Lodge). I like everything about Bophut except I've read the swimming in front of the village stinks and my hotel, which is in the village, has no pool. Is it far walking to good swimming? Lamai supposedly ...

Lipe questions

Posted by ulf on 12/2/2007 at 14:19

Hi, I've heard that it's possible to go by boat from Phuket to Koh Lipe (One boat from Phuket to Lanta and then another from Lanta to Lipe). On the info I got there's 15 minutes to change boat in Lanta. Does anyone know if this trip is possible to do in one day due to the short time to change boat? Who operates the ferries? Another thing I wonder is if it's possible to go from Lipe to Langkawi in the morning (there are boats on the afternoon, but then I would miss a flight to Bangkok). Ulf ...

Paradise in Southern Thailand

Posted by merrylg on 12/2/2007 at 01:59

My husband and I stayed at the Haadson Resort in Khao Lak Thailand for a week over christmas 2007 and had a wonderful time (Island Villa). (This small resport is not currently in the recommended list for Khao Lak, but it should be...perhaps it's too new?) The resort has fully recovered from the tsunami, is very nicely designed in a modern clean asthetic that conveys warmth and luxury, and is nicely situated in a coconut plantation, within a lagoon. The location is very quiet and secluded aside ...
