Revised comment policy on Travelfish due to the Thai coup Sticky!

Posted by somtam2000 on 10/6/2014 at 07:46

As Travelfish regulars will be aware there was a coup in Thailand in late May and since then there has been a steady and relentless wind back on freedom of speech, freedom to gather in public, and, well, freedom in general. Earlier today, in the junta's infinite wisdom, they've decided to extend their grasp to the internet. As of today, according to this story on the excellent Prachatai website, "Thai police warned Thai Internet users on Monday that "liking" or expressing approva ...

Thi Lo Su waterfalls - Umphang Please be aware there is NO PRIVATE VEHICLE ACCESS TO THECAMPSITE ANYMORE even 4x4s - you have to pay between 2000 and 2500 baht pervehicle The official reason is " Because policy of Tak Governor,he wants the people to have income" - which seems to back up my beliefthat this is a cartel or monopoly by local businesses. Apparently the governor seems to have overlooked the factthat many people who would normally stay there now won’t come atall....dep ...

Uber late-night from BKK airport?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 27/8/2017 at 09:50

Arriving too late at night to take BTS into city. ATM withdrawal at airport would be too large demoniations for metered cab drivers to make change. I do not respect Uber as a company or an employer, but is it a good alternative for a flat fee paid by credit card? An online search suggests that Uber was banned from the airport earlier this year. Accurate? Information on where to meet driver or other tips? It's my first visit to Thailand so hope to reduce stressful unknowns after 24 hours of ...

Old Skool type Islands?

Posted by JohnnyM on 7/8/2017 at 12:50

I'm looking for recommendations for "old skool" type Island - bamboo huts on the beach, decent beaches, pretty chilled etc I've been to Thailand quite a few times over the years, but not so much recently, and places change.. Last time I was there (4 years ago) I really liked *Little* Ko Chang, though it was maybe a bit too quiet and beaches weren't great. I wasn't overly keen on its neighbour Ko Phayam, which had a lot of building work going on, so it maybe even more developed now. I ...

Two weeks in Flores, Indonesia

Posted by collierconnell on 28/9/2017 at 21:35

Hey everyone, I'm looking forward to a 2 week speed trip through Flores, Indonesia traveling from Labuan Bajo to Maumere in 13 days... My main question is about the bus system as we're running a bit of a budget. Do the buses between the major cities run with any consistency going west to east or is it only a select few that run a few random times a day? I'm slightly worried about getting from Denge (post Wae Rebo) onto Ruteng for example, as it looks as if it's off the trans-Flores high ...

DMK to BKK

Posted by Vukz on 31/8/2017 at 13:12

My wife and I are flying into DMK from Trang at 7:15 pm on Tuesday night in December and then we have to catch a flight from BKK to Manila at 10:50 pm. At first I figured this was enough time but I am a little skeptical now. We will be ferrying from Koh Lipe the same day to Hat Yao Pier and taking a taxi to Trang airport before flying to Bangkok. Is this enough time to get from DMK to BKK or are we cutting it too close? I found another option that would take us on a ferry from Koh Lipe to Pa ...
