3 Nights in Bangkok - where to stay?

Posted by ebrown12 on 29/10/2013 at 11:07

I am starting my SEA trip with three nights in Bangkok and am very undecided about where will be a good base to stay. From reading many posts and looking at a map, I am undecided between somewhere like Baan Dinso, in the old town area - the accommodation itself looks amazing, not too close to KSR, but in the old town - which is where it seems like most of the attractions I will be visiting in 3 days are. Only negatives, seem to be public transport, flying into Suvarnabhumi would have to make ma ...

Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai?

Posted by Boohoo on 11/11/2013 at 05:20

Hi, I'm currently in Chiang Mai and thinking about my next move. I had thought of Chiang Rai as its on the way to Chiang Khong for the border crossing and slow boat. Wondering if there are any alternatives worth considering other than Chiang Rai. If anyone can suggest some other options I'd love to hear about them. I am looking to leave here on Wednesday and would like to be on the slow boat by/over next weekend. Although I do frequent the bars at night I'm not really interested in a ...

Elephant Nature Park- Chiang Mai

Posted by adbeats06 on 6/11/2013 at 20:20

Hello, I am looking at various elephant parks to visit while in Chaing Mai, and Elephant Nature Park or Patara seem to be the highest rating (from reviews I've read) in terms of the ethical and humane treatment of their elephants. I know both are quite pricey, however I am willing to pay a bit more to ensure the animals are well looked after and are not made to do any tricks, painting etc. Can anyone who has been to either (or may have heard through others) let me know if they would recommend ...

Khao San Road or Not?

Posted by adbeats06 on 3/11/2013 at 23:11

I will be traveling to BKK for a few days before I head up to Chiang Mai, still trying to decide whether or not to stay on KSR. I am a solo traveler so the opportunity to meet other travellers is important to me, however I am 30 and while I still enjoy partying, that is not the main focus of my trip. Am I putting myself at a disadvantage to meet others by not staying on KSR? My next choice would be a guest house in Silom area. Can anyone who has stayed in Silom give me an idea as to how easy i ...

Getting from Kanchanaburi to Prachuap

Posted by karibou on 4/7/2013 at 19:20

I'm hoping to travel from Kanchanaburi to Prachuap Khiri Khan in a single day without going through Bangkok. I was thinking of first getting to Nakhon Pathom somehow and from there taking a train the rest of the way. I've read, though, that trains on the southern line are notorious for lengthy delays. I'm concerned that this might make it a really exhausting day of travel. My preference is to go by train; second choice government bus. Can anyone weigh in? Any realistic estimates of travel ...

Bangkok --> Siem Reap Travel Options?

Hey guys, We are travelling from Bangkok --> Siem Reap via Aranyaprathet on Christmas Day 2013. We were planning on either taking a bus or a train to Aranyaprathet from Bangkok in the morning and then getting a private taxi to our guesthouse from Poipet in Cambodia (4 of us travelling together). Does anyone know if we can skip the bus/train and hire a taxi to Aranyaprathet? Or if we can even share a minivan with someone? Do people often use a minivan to Aranyaprathet and if so how would ...

Recommendations on places to stay in Koh Lanta?

Posted by chonkyt on 18/3/2013 at 01:29

I'm headed to Koh Lanta next week for part of an Andaman Islands honeymoon. We're unsure of what areas to stay, and if it makes sense to hop around from one place to the other while on the island or whether we should just stay in one place and motorbike around. We'd like to stay away from the more populous northern area, and we're looking at a few days on the west coast about halfway down the island (Khlong Nin, Khlong Khong, Relax Bay) and a few more in the south (near Kantiang, Khlong Jak). Id ...

I'm planning a SE Asian trip in January and need help with the Thailand portion of my trip. My main priority is to get in a lot of good beach time but would also love to try activities like cooking, yoga, snorkelling/diving and muay thai. What I was thinking of doing was to start in Ko phi phi and explore the beachy areas around there like Railay, Ko Lanta and Ao Nang then make my way up to Ko Tao and then Bangkok. Is this too much travelling around for such a short time? Should I squeeze ...

I know West Railay in January is very expensive, so I'm not interested in that however I have heard it might be worth staying on East Railay and walking over to the beach on the west side?
