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 ...

Bangkok to Penang by train

Posted by Antaro on 27/7/2017 at 04:23

Hi there, from what I found out, it seems as if the way to go from Thailand to Penang has changed last year with the introduction of new electrical trains in Malaysia. Two questions about that, as I didn't find any info: - Is there still a train running from Thailand all the way down to Butterworth with border formalities in Pedang Basar or do I have to change trains there? - Is it still possible to buy a ticket in Thailand for the whole way or do I need to get a new ticket at the border for ...

Bangkok splurge on meal?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 16/7/2017 at 01:20

Is any fairly costly restaurant—or other extravagance—in Bangkok highly recommended as an exception to a fairly moderate travel budget? My father used to speak highly of afternoon tea at the Oriental, but it may not be all it was decades ago. I've never been to Thailand and hear that market food, etc. is of such high quality that anywhere really "nice" may just be about marketing or an atmosphere least challenging to Westerners. Any tips on how to assure the best, least disappoin ...

Use Thai visa for second entry rather than first?

Posted by Williamhdc on 27/6/2017 at 23:46

I've been visiting Thailand for ages and my wife is Thai...never thought I'd be posting a Thai visa question, but here goes... I'll be visiting Thailand for about 9 weeks, with a side trip to Mauritius a week after I first arrive there. Can I get a Thai visa before entering the first time (easy in L.A., where I live) but ask the Thai immigration agent in BKK to give me a 30 day arrival entry, and not start my visa yet, so I can "save" it for the second entry? If not I think I'll need ...

Lighthouse bungalows

Posted by mikal83 on 26/6/2017 at 05:14

Have just read the latest blog from TF and its section on Koh Phangan and wanted to check out if they praised where we stayed at the Lighthouse bungalows and to our dismay, they weren't mentioned. Well I will. We stayed there for 4 nights and we were very happy with the owners, staff, food and most of all the accom. Perched on a steep slope built into cliff edge, the large room with ensuites had a view to die for. As it can only be reached by foot or small motorbike, its very quiet and a real re ...
