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 ...

Two-week trip with kids: Chiang Mai or Khao Sok National Park?

Posted by Unoriginal on 15/6/2017 at 23:25

We are planning our first trip to Thailand for December/January. Our two children will be 8 and 3.5 at the time, and we will be traveling from the western US. We are planning on spending our first three days in Bangkok and our last 5-7 days in the Andaman region. For the middle portion, we are torn between Chiang Mai and Khao Sok National Park. They look equally lovely to my husband and myself, but the deciding factor needs to be which place our kids will enjoy the most. Ease of travel to/in t ...

Koh Lipe - Koh Lipe Homestay, has anyone stayed?

Posted by paperboats87 on 10/8/2017 at 05:26

Hello! I'm hoping to find anyone who has stayed at Koh Lipe Homestay? It looks really nice on the Agoda photos and there is a positive review on this website, but it doesn't appear to be on Tripadvisor yet which I normally use to get "real" photos of a place. It would be a no-cancellation booking, so I just wanted to get personally views on the place before going forward... Thank you! ...

Entire Mae Hong Son Loop by Public Transportation?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 12/8/2017 at 11:50

How easy are the connections by bus or van to do all of the Mae Hong Son Loop? I do not want to drive a car or motorcycle and am not enthusiastic about engaging a private driver. Two of us are going to Soppong for 2 nights from Chiang Mai. The service that gets us there offers several trips back in the same direction. It's not clear from the posted itinerary how connections would line up to travel on. Also it's a lot longer trip. If it is a reliable option is there a good place to bre ...

From Isaan to Ko Kut?

Posted by Shining on 14/8/2017 at 06:40

Hey there, we are planning a trip through Isaan in November and for our last couple of days a short intermezzo at the sea. I thought, it might be an idea of trying Ko Kut, as the Ko Chang Archipelago is also in the east... But it seems, it is not so easy to connect it to our route. I thought about taking a train, probably from Ubon, and it seems, as there is a connection to Kaeng Koi (?), where it might be possible to jump on the green line to Pattaya or Marp ta Put (?). But I was not able to f ...
