HELP...Thailand itinerary with young kids

Posted by Dorothy on 13/8/2013 at 17:23

Hi, I'm a first timer to Thailand planning to spend a month there this November with my husband and 2 kids (4 & 2). I'd be really grateful of any itinerary advice, tips on what to see, where to stay, places to eat and how to get about. We'll be flying into Bangkok from the UK and then hoping to get a no frills flight to Australia from Thailand. We'd like to spend some time in Bangkok when we first arrive. Then we'd like to spend some time in the mountains/jungle. With such young kids we won ...

Expired Antibiotics Sold in Pai

Posted by travelfisher on 15/8/2013 at 06:40

Hi there, for your information: Drugstore next to Duang restaurant and Government Savings Bank office in Pai - it's "main corner" of "walking street" there, bank has pink board- sells expired antibiotic (Dicloxilin in my case, expired Dicloxilin can cause kidney damage)- expiry date is 20.02.13, so it's been 6 month since it actually expired. I was stupid enough to trust "pharmacist" there, so it came out after I took a course that didn't work, and came back to ge ...

1 week in Thailand Islands

Posted by Islandseeker on 10/8/2013 at 08:13

My partner and I are flying into and out of Phuket in the middle of October. We have 7 days in the area. We are quite keen to escape the crowds of Phuket and head to a couple of islands close by. We are looking for some nice beaches, in the hope we will get sunny breaks. We are in our 30s and looking for a place to chill and to avoid the party scene, but not to be the only tourists in the area. We are looking at breaking the 7 days up over a couple of different places. Any suggestions? ...

paradise lost

Posted by pad_thai on 23/7/2013 at 13:53

what is the most 'off the beaten track' island (or beach) you have visited in Thailand. I love Thailand, I've been a couple times. I like mellow and slow - not full moon party. I've been to a few islands in Thailand (Ko Chang, Ko Tao, Ko Samet) I've also visited Ton Sai. I loved all of these places probably Ton Sai the best but I'd love to know if there are any more obscure beach/island spots I could (should visit). Thanks! ...

3-month SEA itinerary - please critique

Posted by adaminasia on 7/8/2013 at 00:02

Hi, I am taking a 3-month solo trip from September through November to Southeast Asia, leaving in just a few weeks. This is my first time going and I am really excited! Travelfish has been super helpful to see other people's itineraries and learn more about the area, so thanks to this community! I'm hoping for a life changing / building new perspectives type of experience. Not sure whether/if I'll make it back to this region so I've packed in a lot. I'd love to get your thoughts on my itin ...

Critique the Itinerary- do I have time to do more?

Posted by Sidiki on 7/8/2013 at 00:18

Hey Travelfish Friends! I've seen some itinerary critiques before and I was hoping you guys could do it for me? I'll be traveling in SE Asia for the first time next year with my girlfriend. We plan on being in Thailand for 3 weeks. Psychology of the trip: we'll be coming right out of our Peace Corps services, so there will probably be conflicts between wanting to experience "genuine" Thailand and wanting to experience "vacation" Thailand after having been genuine for two ye ...

Food in Southeast Asia!!!

Posted by cdnexplorer on 7/1/2010 at 07:34

I'm leaving in a little over 6 weeks for a 6 month tour of SEA. Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Malaysia and shorter stops in the Philippines and Bali. What are some 'must have' dishes from each respective region? I understand that everyone has their own tastes and preferences, but if people could jot down 4-5 from each region it would be appreciated. I've always wondered why there isn't a 'food' subcategory in the forums - but I suppose you can't cover every base. ...

July 2013 A major highlight in my family's upcoming visit to Thailand in November 2013 was to be a visit to the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi. I am bitterly disappointed at all of the negative posts that detail dreadful living conditions for these and other animals and mistreatment of the tigers, written by visitors and significantly by traveling volunteers who have worked at the property and "see it all" while there. One thing though, most of the posts are years old and I would like t ...

Hi there! My girlfriend and I are traveling to Thailand this coming February and it would be of great help if anyone could give some advice as to where to go. We will travel for 2 - 3 weeks on a student's budget, however would like to splurge for a few nights in a beach resort. Despite us both being active individuals, we would like the holiday to be relaxing and largely beach based. I know there's a LOT to do and see in Thailand, however I've always preferred spending at least a few days in ...

month on the beach in the fall

Hey All, I'm looking for one maybe two people to travel with from the states to Thailand, and basically sit on the beach for a month. I'm flexible on dates but sometime in the fall. Nothing too fancy, a cheap vrbo rental or something for a homebase should do. I've travelled extensively in Europe and the Caribbean/Latin America, just looking for a change of scenery. I want to visit a school friend in Bangkok at some point but other than that, lead the way if you like. Me - mid 30's mariner w ...

Is traveling Southern Thailand/Malaysia in September a bad idea due to rainy season?

Hi - If you are in the area or have been I'd love your advice! I'll be starting a 3-month solo trip through southeast Asia starting in early September. My flight gets into Singapore, and I was originally planning on taking a flight from Singapore to Bangkok to do Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam/Laos, but have recently thinking that as long as I'm in Singapore it may be worth trekking overland through Malaysia and southern Thailand to get to Bangkok. Do you have thoughts? I think it would be a fun ...
