Travel adaptor at the arrivals area in the airport or Ayutthaya??

Posted by heleni on 18/7/2013 at 07:16

I have an electrical question. (Sorry) I am going straight from the airport to Ayutthaya. Will I be able to buy adaptors for my euro (2 pin) and English (3 pin) plugs in Ayutthaya? I am hoping I will be able to find them everywhere. If not can I buy one at arrivals in the airport? Alternatively I have to buy an expensive one here in the UK. This website says they are only available in Bangkok and Chaing Mai but I'm hoping that isn't the case! ...

Krabi or Phuket - better base?

Posted by Arundhati_S on 18/7/2013 at 01:52

Our family will be in Thailand this December and in Krabi /Phuket the week before Christmas. I do understand this is an awfully touristy time and avoiding crowds is not really an option. But we have about three days there (and thankfully weekdays) - and were wondering what would be a better base - Krabi or Phuket? If that really makes a difference, that is. We will be backpacking, so cost will be a factor. Also - and this might be a really ignorant question - but are there certain beaches wher ...

Suvarnabhumi to Don Muang - immigrations and transfer time?

Posted by Arundhati_S on 18/7/2013 at 01:32

Our family is traveling to South East Asia this December and we land at the Suvarnabhumi airport at about 2am from India. We then have a flight to Krabi from the Don Muang airport at 6:40am. I had a couple of questions about that: 1. Is about 3 1/2 hours enough time to go through immigrations at Suvarnabhumi and travel to DMK in time to check-in? As I understand it, its more than 45kms. But I assume it should be faster at that time of night. 2. How should we travel between the two? If we tra ...

where to stay in Phuket

Posted by feiticeira on 25/9/2012 at 21:31

Hello, I am a 30 yo solo female traveler looking to enjoy the nightlife scene - clubs, bars, or walking around town in Phuket in November. I am having trouble deciding where to stay while in Phuket (3 nights which seems like a lot but the first night my flight arrives at 2350 from Chiang Mai). I'll be daytripping to Phi Phi one day and doing some kayaking on another day, and then from there will travel to Krabi and onwards. I've heard Patong can be tacky and trashy depending on who's provi ...

Buddhist holiday on July 23?

Posted by gregmccann1 on 12/7/2013 at 12:23

I've been told that July 23rd is a Buddhist holiday in Thailand. This also happens to be the day that I arrive in Thailand for a short (6 day) trip. I can go a day without beer, no problem (sort of), but...the FIRST DAY? No beer on my arrival day? Haven't been to Thailand in a year and I am very happy to be coming back and I wanted to celebrate. And now I hear that the sale of alcohol will be banned on that day. Are there any places that will sell it anyway? ...

What's the area just north of the Princess Mothers Health Garden and east of the uni like? I can see a number of hotels are located there. Pingnakorn Hotel on Nimmanhemin rd soi 12 gets good reviews - what's that soi like? ...
