Accomodation in Ko Phi Phi and Koh Pha Ngan

Posted by pedrorf94 on 13/11/2013 at 14:42

Hello guys, I`m going to Ko phi phi over christmas (I`ll arrive there in the 23rd), so I would like to know if it is advisable to book in advance accommodation and ferry from Phuket, personally I would rather not book anything, leaving to choose my hostel when I arrive there.

How to get the last ferry in time for half moon party on Koh Phangan?

Posted by eve1eve on 20/11/2013 at 09:54

Hi, my friend and I arrive at Surat Thani airport at 3.35pm on Dec 24th, and our hope is to get the last ferry that leaves from either Surat Thani pier at 4.30pm or Don Sak Pier at 6pm going to Koh Phangan. Will we be able to make this? I hear that the bus always goes first into Surat Thani town and then you have to change for the bus to Don Sak - is there not a bus direct to Don Sak at that time (for Raja ferry only), and if not will we have enough time to make the 6pm ferry after our negoti ...

We decided to write an in depth post that should prove helpful for anyone that wants a one stop place to prepare themselves and their pet for airline travel. Make sure you try to lock down a solid travel date 2 months in advance to allow you time to take care of all of the required tasks. We link to official forms, include important contact ...

Khao Sok Jungle vs Floating advice needed

Posted by mikefly on 28/9/2013 at 18:22

Hi, I need some help with advice at Khao Sok. Reading the reviews on trip advisor etc, it is difficult to tell which hotels/b&bs etc. are inside the park, and which are nearby. I assume you eat, tour etc. with whichever place it is you stay at - is this correct? When comparing the 'floating' rooms with the jungle rooms - which makes for a more remarkable experience? Both look nice. We are travelling with our baby, so convenience and comfort must play a role. Note that we have been campin ...
