3-4 hrs enough to go into BKK from airport, shop & return?

Posted by heidisueelvus on 15/2/2014 at 03:26

Hi Everyone, Our plane arrives at BKK from Trat at 2:10pm and I would like to go into Bangkok on the city train, shop for a few gifts and be back to the airport by 5 or 6 pm. Is this doable? I've been bad and haven't bought any gifts for family and will be on Koh Kood where there's no shopping until we leave! Also, a related question - can anyone suggest a shop or area where I could find high quality crafts (especially textiles) that is very close to where I could get to conveniently on the ...

Southern Thailand Questions

Posted by JainaSJedi on 14/2/2014 at 02:05

Hi, I'm flying to Bangkok on March 20 and then on to Phuket where I am starting my trip with a liveboard out of Khao Lak. I have a few questions about traveling in Southern Thailand. I plan to work my way north to south visiting Khao Lak, Ko Yao Noi, and Ko Lanta to start. 1) Is there a public bus from Phuket to Khao Lak? Most things I've seen posted refer to taxi service, which is expensive (>$1400 baht). 2) What's a good hostel/guesthouse in Bangkok near either the airport or the sky ...

Looking for any traveler from BC Canada

I am looking to adopt a puppy from Soi Dog rescue in Phuket . I don't want to send the puppy by cargo and am wondering if anyone out there traveling from Phuket to either Vancouver, Calgary or Kelowna Canada within the next month would be willing to act as a flight volunteer and travel with my puppy. Soi Dog will take care of all the logistics and meet you at the airport so no big hassle. We will meet you on your arrival in BC. ...

Reasonable costing tour for phi phi and phang nga in phuket

Posted by rohveer on 11/2/2014 at 11:41

Guys, Please give me names/links of good tour operators for the two tours . I know going in speedboat will cost more and I have no problems going in a slow cruise ship. I know I could probably hire a longboat and go there but we are a family of only four and the cost would be too much. I am looking for each tour costing THB 1100-1200 per person and not more. We are going around 7th May, 2014 and hope the rains don't play spoilsport. Thanks, guys ...

Flight to catch - how much time to drive from Pai to Chiang Mai?

We are driving the Mae Hong Son loop clockwise and spending our last night around Pai . The next morning we will need to get to the Chiang Mai airport no later than 4:30 pm for a flight to Sukhothai. We've never done this drive before and will be taking it slow. Can anyone who has done it give me an idea of how much time to allow? We'll be driving to Pai from MHS and we're thinking that if we were able to stay somewhere between Pai and Chiang Mai it might make the drive back to ...

Hi Travelfish guys, My Partner and I are planning a trip to thailand for 17 days in june-july this year. We are landing in Chang Mai and planning to spend quite a lot of time discovering the north and possibly doing a slow boat down the Mekong into Laos (heard its quite good?). Anyways to finish of our trip we would really like an awesome beach getaway and have discovered that the gulf of thailand is probably best to avoid really bad weather. We are more interested in a lazy and relaxing exper ...

Thailand in April - should we include the north?

Posted by vermishel on 1/2/2014 at 10:24

Hi All, I'm planning a trip to Thailand in April (yes, I heard it's going to be hot!) for 2 weeks. We're a couple in our early 30's, and we enjoy exploring nature and trekking (but don't mind relaxing on a beach here and there). In terms of budget, we prefer staying in hostels and traveling by night trains/night buses where possible, but can afford a flight to save time. I really wanted to include a visit to the north to places like Pai, Nan or Soppong to do some independent trekking, but bec ...

I registered here on travelfish a few years ago with the intent of using it for knowledge, learning and generally meeting new people as I had planned to travel across as much of the far east as possible. Sadly life and circumstance got in the way for me and I kept on putting off what should have been a priority for me. It was perhaps however for the best as I had soul searching to do on a personal level and in hindsight I may have viewed my forthcoming travel experience as a means to seek happi ...

Does anyone have the e-mail id for Thanapa Mansion, 9 Phaholyothin 48 sub-soi 5 Phaholyothin Rd. Bangkhen, Don Muang / Impact, Bangkok, Thailand. I can book a room with them online but all of that is 2 bed. I need an extra bed and need to e-mail them before I book. This hotel seems to be perfect for my last day in Bangkok, board 6:20 a.m. flight from it, and also see Chatuchak weekend market and crash. Also this is better than my current booking at We-Train International House, 501/1 Dechatung ...
