Protests in Bangkok today (Monday December 9, 2013)

Posted by somtam2000 on 8/12/2013 at 18:13

Yes the protests are back on following a brief break for the King's Birthday. Common advice is: a) I've you're arriving or departing to Bangkok today by air, allow an extra hour or so to get to the airport.

Another protest question! - Travel to Rambuttri

Posted by foxiebex on 10/12/2013 at 07:23

Hi, Maybe stupidly I decided not to change my hotel from Rambuttri Village so I now have to get there on Thursday. I noticed captainbkk commented on here yesterday that you couldn't get a taxi to KSR area and that the boats were packed. Do you think that this was because of yesterdays march or is this going to be the norm for a while? If anybody is there at the moment who could let me know the score that would be great. Thanks ...

Thailand Visa - help!

Posted by IndiaGabrielle on 6/6/2013 at 15:27

Hi everyone, I'm going to Thailand at the end of July and need to sort my Visa. What's the best way to do this? I'm going to Thailand for around 2/3 months, but going to be leaving to travel to Vietnam/Cambodia etc within this time. Do I need to go to a Thai embassy in Britain to get a Visa? Would a tourist visa be the one that I need? (Visa-free stay isn't an option - I think I'll be there too long). Any help on this topic would be much appreciated! Thanks ...

In search of good weather..?

Posted by eirengal on 4/12/2013 at 00:09

Hi, I'm about to complete a year of travelling and had planned to spend my final week on a beach in the sunshine just chilling out. I'm in Ko Tao at the minute and, as expected, the weather is pretty miserable. It is rainy season though so no surprises. I believe that the weather on the Andaman coast is similar to here, however, and this throws my plans in the air. I had planned to go to krabi/phi phi for the last week of my trip. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go that is ge ...
