Booking through Hotels2Thailand

Posted by magalaya on 16/3/2013 at 20:31

Hey everyone - my boyfriend and I are trying to book our hotel for the first portion of our trip to Bangkok - we have a later flight (get into Bangkok around 9 pm) and want to make sure we have a place to stay at least the first night. We're hoping to book Lamphu Tree House - we couldn't able to find it on Agoda but found it on a website called hotels2thailand (www.hotels2thailand.com) at a cheaper rate quoted on the Lamphu Tree House website. Does anyone have experience with this booking websit ...

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 ...

Khao Sok to Krabi

Posted by karibou on 29/1/2014 at 12:17

I need to get from Khao Sok to Krabi town in early March but can't afford a taxi, at least not by myself, and want to avoid the famed minibus fiasco. My guesthouse owner presents the minibus as the only option. Does anyone know if there's a regular-size government bus, and where would I catch it? Thanks! ...

E-mail id for Thanapa Mansion near DMK Airport

Posted by Vaishali on 3/1/2014 at 10:03

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 ...

Five nights to travel from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai

Posted by heidisueelvus on 27/1/2014 at 21:42

I'm interested in renting a car and driving from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai . The route I'm most interested in would be from CM to Chiang Dao, Phrao, Phayao, Phrae, Nan, Sukhothai. Can anyone tell me if this is doable logistically? If it is, is it too much ground to cover in 5 nights? Is it possible to rent a car in CM and drop it off in Sukhothai or Phitsanulok? If it's not so good do you have any other more realistic suggestions? Thanks so much! ...

Travelling with a very young child

Posted by Sparts on 21/1/2014 at 08:46

Ok, so I'm looking for opinions here. Having been to Thailand a number of times now I'd not consider myself as a stranger to that part of the world. I'm planning a trip towards the middle of this year. Nothing fancy or off the beaten track. Just a nice relaxing break on a beach we are familiar with (or were). We'll simply be flying into Bangkok before flying to Samui for onwards transport to Phangan. As I said, simples! The difference this time I that we'll be bringing our toddler who will onl ...

Posted by howtravel on 26/1/2014 at 08:09

Looking forward to 3 weeks holiday in Thailand. Have booked flights to Bangkok arriving second week of February 2014.

Hi. I'm a writer currently in Thailand. I'm going to be doing some traveling around Asia with a friend for the next month or so, but after that I'm going to be looking for a place to post up and get some work done. Ideally I would like to find a place that is relatively inexpensive and laid back, a mix of travelers and locals, and the opportunity to socialize when I want but also a place to recede to when I want to work or chill or read.
