Posted by Huskybabe on 19/5/2013 at 10:49

We would like SOME kind of local life with restaurants & bars etc around us to escape the hotel but not really party an ...

online train ticket booking

Posted by alex82 on 23/5/2013 at 10:57

Hello, We are going next week to Thailand and are planning to make a round in southeast Asia for 3 months without prefixed date, and his is why we don't have a ticket back to the original destination (Beirut). But we have been told by the Thais embassy, the travel company and many people (and we have been reading on the net) that there are chances they won't let us in Thailand without an onward ticket. So we thought we buy a train or bus ticket to any neighboring country. But we cannot seem to f ...

14 days in Thailand with six month old; Bangkok, Beach, something else and FOOD!

Posted by orejas on 16/5/2013 at 10:00

As I'm absolutely, brand spanking new on this forum, let me shortly introduce myself. Hi! I'm a 30something year old, with girlfriend and a six month old daughter. I've travelled around a bit in recent years. Absolute favorite? Isla de Ometepe in Nicaragua. Easily. Cheapest (and scariest) hotel? $3 (US) for a double with aircon in La Ceiba, Honduras. Most relaxing? A beachfront bungalow on Lombok or farm stay in Tuscany. Now that we intimately know one another, I would love to get your help on s ...

Getting from Chiang Mai to Siem Reap.

Hey guys, I just want to clear up a visa question I have about Thailand. I'm flying into Bangkok on June 13 and will spend 2.5-3 weeks in Thailand, but will then go to Cambodia for 2 months. I'll then return to Thailand to fly out of BKK on September 11. Considering I won't actually be in Thailand over 30 days, but my flight makes it appear that way, do I need to get Thai tourist visa? I'd prefer to take a bus to Phnom Penh, so I don't want to have to buy an onward flight to Cambodia to prove th ...

Samui - Phi Phi

Hi Guys, I can't find a website with up-to-date timings so was wondering if you could help. We are wanting to go from Samui to Phi Phi on the same day (last time I went, we missed the ferry to Phi Phi and stayed in Krabi for the night). This trip is time-pressured for the island part as 2 of us have already done them. If anyone has times of when we would need to leave Samui and the timings of the ferries to Phi Phi then that would help a great deal. Thanks. ...

Is there anywhere else in Thailand like Koh Tao?

Posted by liskaw123 on 13/5/2013 at 16:01

Hi, we are a couple in our late twenties going to Vietnam and Cambodia for 6 nights each and wanted a 8 night Thailand beach break at the end (28th Nov - 6th Dec). After investigating we had our hearts set on Koh Tao but it seems this will be the worst possible time for weather so I am gutted! Is there anywhere else like it that we could go to as an alternative? We want somewhere with a good choice of local restaurants and chilled beach bars (love bean bags on the beach like Bali) that we can si ...

Alternative beach resort to Hua Hin

Posted by FrenchArt on 12/5/2013 at 11:35

We have been to Hua Hin several times and really like it for many reasons - reasonable prices, compact, lots of restaurants and even a couple of Irish pubs, nice beaches with cafes with lots of shade right on the beach, shops to wander around and a few places to visit. BUT - we would now like a change and would like to stay somewhere else for a couple of weeks after 2 weeks intensive sight-seeing (in Burma this time). Can anyone suggest any good alternatives in Thailand with similar facilities ...
