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 ...

Beach for family late July early August???

Posted by jbmcd1 on 22/6/2017 at 21:00

Greetings, I am looking for a beach for my family (2 children age 10 and 12) for the last week in July and first week in August. At that point we will have been traveling for 6 weeks and will be looking for some proper holiday time. We will be returning from Laos to Bangkok at this time. Flights to Koh Samui (to get to Koh Tao or Ko Pha Nagano) might cost too much for our budget at that point. Though I would welcome advice on getting the cheapest round trip flight back to Bangkok. Is it not a ...

Islands/Beach in August....is Koh Samui the best option?

Posted by juliet17 on 21/6/2017 at 23:48

Hi, My boyfriend and I are spending three weeks exploring Thailand and Cambodia this August. We'd like to spend 5-6 days on a beach/island hopping. I understand Koh Samui and the surrounding area don't get as much rain at that time of year, but it also sounds like it's built up and a bit of a party scene. We are 27 and love nice cocktails, but are mostly looking for authenticity and a way to relax after taking the bar. Are there other places besides Koh Samui that wouldn't get so much rain ...

Snorkeling visibility first week of September?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 4/6/2017 at 14:55

During periods when it's not raining in the Andaman Islands is the water much murkier for snorkeling than in the high season? It's fine to come in part of each day, but is the whole experience diminished by not seeing so much at any time? This is for 2 people looking for US$40-70 per night. The Trang Islands look appealing because I read that there's less of a "party scene." All advice appreciated. Thanks. ...
