Crowds around Christmas/New Year?

Posted by mashiko on 11/11/2016 at 05:47

Hello! We are travelling to Thailand and Cambodia for Christmas and New Years' holidays. I was surprised to see that some seats on a bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap are already sold (only 2 out of 38, but it is 1.5 months in advance). Also I remember that couldn't book some cheap and midrange hotels around Thailand as they were booked out for Christmas in August already...

Posted by chellie99 on 4/11/2016 at 06:11

We're two Americans traveling in northern Thailand, and will be in Chiang Rai during the USA election - results should start to come in early morning on Nov. 9.
