Bangkok to Chiang Rai and everything in between

Hello All: I will be travelling to Thailand in Sept/13 I will fly into Bangkok and want to to go Burriram and Korat. I need to know which place first in order of distance. Furthest away first then make my way back to Bangkok. I am also looking at travel options. Plane versus bus, rail. I kind of had my heart set on plane but I can't seem to find an airport in Korat.

Hi Please can anyone advise on a route to take as I am getting confused...... I am in Chiang Mae and would like to end up in Chiang Rai. In between I would like to visit Chiang Dao, Mae Sariang, Soppong, Mae Hong Son and Phayao. Ideally I would like to take the boat trip from Thaton to Chiang Rai. Anyone got any suggestions in which order to visit these places please. I have plenty of time to spend in each place so time is not an issue. Should I do Chiang Mai to Mae Sariang via Doi Inthanon?

one-day scuba dive in Koh Tao without certification

Posted by FaceTheHorizon on 1/6/2013 at 16:34

Hello... I previously did a one-day scuba dive with an instructor off of Cairns at the Great Barrier Reef. This trip, I'm traveling with a friend who is PADI certified, but I don't have the time to complete the whole course, either here at home or in Thailand. So I'm looking for recommendations of good dive operators located in Koh Tao who offer one-day outings that allow me to dive in the Gulf and not just a pool. (Yes, I've done some Google-ing already; I just wanted to see what users here ...

Thai visa waiver+travel to Cambodia

Posted by stusie94 on 6/6/2013 at 09:04

Hey guys, me and my girlfriend are planning on going to SE Asia in june/july for 38 days in total. The plan is to be in Thailand for 18 days, then travel to Cambodia for around 6 days, then be in Thailand again for the next 14 days. The problem is, as I understand it, to qualify for the visa waiver I need proof that I will be leaving Thailand within 30 days. However, we want to go to Siem Reap by bus from Bangkok (apparently there's now a direct bus route) but I can't find anywhere to book ...

I will be travelling end of August/beginning of September (flying into Bangkok first) and would like to know which islands are best at this time of year. I will be there for approx 10 days.

Thailand Options

Hi, I will be travelling around SE Asia and wasting my 30 day Thai exemption visa (UK) by going straight to Cambodia after a few days in Bangkok before heading further on the loop through Vietnam and Laos. As I am not exploring Thailand before leaving for Cambodia, I will want to do that at the end for 3 weeks. 2 weeks in the south: beaches, islands etc... and 1 week in Chang Mai before back to Bangkok for flight home. The problem is the visa as coming from Laos by land gives you only 15 days an ...

Hi all, I'll be leaving on a solo trip to Thailand next week (3 week long trip). I'm flying into Bangkok, plan on hanging out there for 3-6 days. I don't have much of anything set in stone after that. I kind of want to meet other people and see what happens from there. I plan to fly to Chiang Mai from BKK at some point. Right now the flights are about $130+ online. I think I read somewhere that it's easy/less expensive to buy tickets there rather than ahead of time. Is there any merit to thi ...
