Khao Sok: How long to stay?

Posted by karibou on 5/7/2013 at 18:13

Are there compelling reasons to stay in Khao Sok NP more than 3 nights? I'm planning to spend one of those nights on the lake. Would a second night on the lake be worthwhile? I'll be in Thailand for 30 days, visiting Khao Sok fairly early in March. I'm really into natural attractions (especially swimming and birds) but not able to hike long distances. Hoping to stay at Smiley's Bungalows and arrange the lake tour through them. As a woman traveling alone on my first trip to Asia, I'm not comf ...

Middle-aged woman alone: Sore thumb?

Posted by karibou on 16/2/2013 at 18:41

I'm a woman in my 50s planning a month-long solo trip to Thailand and a little worried about feeling out of place. I've happily traveled solo before, but this will be my first trip to Asia. I'm probably somewhere between flashpacker and backpacker, preferring low-key, friendly, characterful places that are a little off the beaten path. I like meeting people but am also very comfortable alone. Not looking for romance or night life -- just want to soak up Thailand's natural beauty and "real&q ...

Hello I fly into Surat Thani on July 17th at 8:20 p.m. Ideally I would like to catch the night boat which departs surat thani town (Am I correct on this?) to Koh Phangan at 11:00 p.m. but I am unsure if I will be able to make it from Surat Thani airport in time to catch the boat. Should I book a night or should I go for it and if I do miss the night boat will I have much trouble finding a place to crash? Your help is much appreciated, Craig ...

Visa Help

Posted by Starving_Sound on 29/6/2013 at 18:56

This is all very confusing. Much help would be appreciated. I have a Non-Immigrant Type O Multiple Entry Visa (year). I don't understand what exactly I have to do or do not have to do. I'm hearing many different things and the official websites are confusing and mostly talk about how to get one. What do I have to do with this type of Visa every 90 days? Is making a border run all I have to do? Do I have to go to Immigration to and get a resident thingmajig? That's the main part I don't unde ...

Pregnant + toddler, best island/beach area?

Posted by rtilghman on 23/1/2012 at 12:03

We're planning trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand for 6 weeks over March/April (arrive Hanoi March 5). "Rough" travelers, this trip will add a new dimension in that my wife will be pregnant (~23 weeks when we arrive) and we'll have our daughter in tow (~19 mo). Current plan is to spend time around Hanoi/Sapa, run the train south to Saigon (multiple stops), spend time visiting major sites in Cambodia, and then wing it with our remaining time in Thailand likely by visiting Sukh ...

Night train from BKK to Chiang Mai

Posted by sassafrass on 6/6/2013 at 00:38

I really would like my daughter to experience the night train but I hear that the tracks can be washed out in July due to rainy season. What exactly does this mean if you are on a train and how likely is this. Is it a better idea just to fly? I know we would save time but I really enjoyed the train last year. Thank you for your insight and help! ...

Pullman Hotel in Khon Kaen

Posted by MADMAC on 13/4/2012 at 06:43

I stayed there for two nights earlier this week. Excellent place, and decent value for the money. It was 2,700 baht a night, but with that you got a coupon worth 550 baht for dinner, another coupon for a massage (and it was REALLY top end), another coupon for a free pitcher of beer and another coupon for a drink of your choice at the lobby bar. The hotel pool was good - my daughter loved it. It's centrally located right in the middle of the city, with lots of nightlife and restaraunts all around ...
