Link between Koh Lanta a Phi Phi

Posted by peppe on 16/2/2017 at 04:23

Hello, I'd like to go from Koh Lanta to Phi Phi in the morning (I know there is a boat departing at 8:00) but is the last boat going from Phi Phi to Koh Lanta at 15:30??? Is there another link solution in order to stay much longer in Phi Phi (without sleep there)?? Furthermore, each link I have checked (krabi, phi phi, lanta...) doesn't leave after 15:30... no boat runs after this time? is it forbidden? Thank you very much. ...

Hat Lek - Cham Yeam Border Crossing Open?

Posted by mklema on 3/5/2015 at 08:20

Hello, In a few weeks I'm planning to cross into Koh Kong, Cambodia from Trat, Thailand via the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam Border Crossing. However, according to Google Maps the Thailand Border Crossing Checkpoint at Hat Lek is "permanently closed." (See map here). This seems strange to me and I can't find any information on the internet about the border crossing being closed. Has anyone crossed through this checkpoint recently? Any news about whether it's open or not? Thanks!!! ...

Ko Bulon accommodation

Posted by Bilbo1 on 14/2/2017 at 09:59

Hi, I’ll be heading to Bulon early March and was wondering ifanyone can recommend a good place to stay? I’m looking for something basic,clean and safe close to a nice beach for up to 1500 THB max with twin beds. I’ve already checked out Pansand Resort website but that starts at 1700 Baht. Also, would it be necessary to book ahead or is it safe enough for that time of year to just turn up as I’ve heard that tourism in Thailand is down this year? Cheers, Bilbo. ...

Getting from Si Satchanalai to Lampang

Posted by Sknew on 9/2/2017 at 23:11

Can someone tell me how I get from Si Satchanalai to Lampang? Do I rejoin the bus that dropped me off from Sukhothai? Or are there songthaeows (sp) from somewhere? I don't know why I forgot to ask this question in the planning stage. I'm learning how, after all my travel experiences, Thailand manages to bewilder me. I need to travel tomorrow (Saturday)! ...

Hi there! I arrive in Bangkok on the 13th at 3:30pm and I will be starting my PADI course at 4:30pm the next day. My question is: Where should I stay for the first night? The way I see it there are 3 options which I have listed below. I am curious as to whether it is worth going to Bangkok for the afternoon/evening? I will return to Bangkok so there will be other opportunities. Should I go straight to Samui and spend 1 night there? I won't be back except to alight. Or just spend the night near ...

Visiting Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai area

Posted by Sknew on 31/1/2017 at 19:37

Hi all. I planned a day trip to see, finally, Doi Suthep. But the costs of transportation seem to vary widely depending on the source. I'd prefer to hire a taxi with A/C for half a day. I'd use this for Wat Buak Krok Luang, Wat Suan Dok, and then Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Ratchawarawihan (the main attraction). Where can I negotiate this deal, and what would be fair? I really dislike songtaews, they tend to give me headaches and take forever. Note I will start this trip from Lampang. Woul ...

Car ferry to Koh Yao Yai

Posted by MyThaiPhilip on 1/2/2017 at 07:16

Hi there, I want to bring a car to Koh Yao Yai. The car ferry information on the Yao Yai page is unfortunately out of date and no longer accurate. It is difficult in the extreme to get current information (phone numbers go unanswered, web searches turn up little, et cetera). I had a hotel owner there tell me there was a daily car ferry from Ao Nang (I assume she means the Nopparattara pier) but no one else seems to know about it and she could not provide further details. The car ferry servic ...

Nana to airport via Makkasan: Is this cutting it too close?

Posted by NamManao on 31/1/2017 at 14:16

I've got a Thailand trip planned for March. On March 6 (a Monday morning), I would like to take the 7:10 a.m. flight to Krabi on Thai Smile from Suvarnabhumi Airport. I'll be leaving from the Nana area (Soi 11) and plan to take a cab the short 2 km distance from there to the Makkasan Station so I can take the air terminal train to the airport. Here's the thing though: I see that the first of those trains running in the morning leaves at 6:18 a.m. Information I find online says that the trai ...
