Snorkeling visibility first week of September?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 4/6/2017 at 14:55

During periods when it's not raining in the Andaman Islands is the water much murkier for snorkeling than in the high season? It's fine to come in part of each day, but is the whole experience diminished by not seeing so much at any time? This is for 2 people looking for US$40-70 per night. The Trang Islands look appealing because I read that there's less of a "party scene." All advice appreciated. Thanks. ...

Two-week trip with kids: Chiang Mai or Khao Sok National Park?

Posted by Unoriginal on 15/6/2017 at 23:25

We are planning our first trip to Thailand for December/January. Our two children will be 8 and 3.5 at the time, and we will be traveling from the western US. We are planning on spending our first three days in Bangkok and our last 5-7 days in the Andaman region. For the middle portion, we are torn between Chiang Mai and Khao Sok National Park. They look equally lovely to my husband and myself, but the deciding factor needs to be which place our kids will enjoy the most. Ease of travel to/in t ...

From Koh Tao to Ko Phi Phi?

Posted by silvibrenes on 2/4/2017 at 17:31

Hi there! In a couple of weeks I'll be flying to Thailand. I was thinking to visit Koh Tao and then go to Ko Phi Phi . I heard it's rainy season in the West Coast. Is it really a good idea to go to Ko Phi Phi around May 4th? If it is, what's the quickest way to get to Ko Phi Phi? And if it is not a good idea, what other beach would you recommend me? I'm 21 years old and flying solo. Thanks! ...

Out and In Same Day Visa Renewal - Trat Province

Hi all, I am staying 5 weeks in Thailand and so need to do a quick 'out and in' visa run to avoid overstay charges on my 30-day Thai tourist visa. If I could do that from Trat town (as I will be on Ko Chang) it would be very helpful. I have no idea on ease and timings for this however so any info appreciated, Thanks... PS If I do just leave after 5 weeks and pay overstay charges (500 Bt / Day?) is there a problem with black mark in passport or unable to return to Thailand etc? It may be e ...

I just received the following release from Care for the Wild, a UK-registered conservation group. In the past we've suggested visitors to Thailand should consider carefully before visiting the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi.

Bangkok hotel recommendations

Posted by Max2010 on 9/5/2017 at 06:54

The hotel that I have been using for decades located in the Sukhumvit/Asoke area is closing this year so now I need to find somewhere to stay. Apart from the odd occasion when this hotel was full I have never had to consider looking for anywhere else. It was never the smartest of places but was clean and friendly. The staff would even remember my kids from when they were toddlers up to now being 20 and 17. Obviously the choice is immense so any recommendations would be a help. Preference is to s ...

This is a rather high-end take by the NYTimes on kicking around in Chiang Rai province. I dunno, I read the NYT and there is no way on earth I'd even consider paying 18k for dinner for two up that way. Thoughts? ...
