Any update on the temporary shut down of part of the train line north from BKK to Chiang Mai?

Posted by cheli on 2/10/2013 at 17:01

Hi all, I've read about how maintenance work on the northern train line from Bangkok to Chiang Mai has closed the route until October 31st. I came onto this forum to see if there's any update at this stage? We were hoping catch the train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai on Nov 17th. We've read that there's no way to book yet as there's likely to be a new timetable, but we're wondering if its going to be too hard to book and should consider flying instead? Urgh, flying! ...

The road to Sangkhlaburi

Posted by joaquin55555 on 3/10/2013 at 10:20

Hello, I've just read the feature story : "The road to Sangkhlaburi"! Greatness... Now I was wondering if there's any chance you can rent a motorbike for a single way trip? For example 2 day rent and leave it in Sangkhlaburi? One of the must sees is a visit to Khao Laem National Park. But on there website they mention it's a bit cold (min 10°) in December?! So no swimming in the waterfalls? There a lot of tips/hints in the article but any additions will be highly appreciated... I'm ...

Posted by janika on 5/4/2013 at 04:45

A growing amount of Remy/Virgin hair seems to come from Asia I'm wondering if anyone knows a place in Bangkok I can buy it ( hopefully a bit cheaper than the websites that supply us in New Zealand! ) I also would like to hold it up to my hair to get the best colour match, I'm after a long blonde clip-in piece. Reccomendations of places in Vietnam or Cambodia would also be very helpful indeed. Thankyou! ...

Best Family Beach?

Posted by xiaolinmama on 1/10/2013 at 17:27

Hello all (first time post-er here!), I am headed to Thailand for two months with my family - including a 10 year old and 13 year old. After a few weeks in Bankok and Chiang Mai, we want to head to the beach. We are thinking about renting a home/condo in Hua Hin for 1 month. We are looking for an economical area to help stretch our budget - nice beach, good food, decent snorkling. Phuket, Pattaya and other big party towns won't work for us. Any suggestions for beach towns for Mid-Nov to ...

Have you done sea kayaking in Phuket or Krabi?

Posted by evrlast985 on 3/10/2013 at 13:51

My buddy and I are going to Thailand for the first time and we really want to go kayaking on the Andaman Sea. We really want to go kayaking to some of the less touristy beaches and maybe spend 3 or 4 nights doing this. Does anyone have any experience with overnight kayak trips?

I have seen the sites for different kayaking tour operators but I am hoping to get some first hand accounts of wha ...

chiang mai to chong mek border with laos

Hi, Im looking for advice on getting from Chiang Mai to the Chong mek border with Laos. Id quite like to make a stop or two along the way and see the places that are less touristy! Having done a bit of reading, im still not really sure where to stop. I can see that I can get a bus straight from ubon ratchathani to pakse which stops for immigration at the border. This would be fine for me. where else would people suggest I stop? Is the bus the way to go? And how about a sleeper bus for any of ...

How to get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok

Hi everybody, I would like to reach Ayutthaya from Bangkok by boat in the afternoon and to come back 2 days later by train (or the other way round). Does anyone have a website link where I can see prices/timetable to eventually book 1 way? or does anyone know if there is a "public" boat service which links Bangkok-Ayutthaya, in the way to avoid the classical trips organized by travel agencies (train + boat) to be more independent? Thanx in advance ...

Odd story about Thailand's Full Moon Party

Posted by somtam2000 on 18/9/2013 at 20:48

Australian newspaper The Age has a quite peculiar story today regarding the safety of foreign tourists at Thailand's Full Moon Parties. While we agree that people should at least try to remain in control at these events, there is one quote from an outgoing Australian honorary consul that really jumped out at us: "What do you do if you are out of it from taking this stuff and you are dragged away in the night and raped by a pack of Thai guys?" It seems extremely irresponsible to narr ...
