DMK to BKK

Posted by Vukz on 31/8/2017 at 13:12

My wife and I are flying into DMK from Trang at 7:15 pm on Tuesday night in December and then we have to catch a flight from BKK to Manila at 10:50 pm. At first I figured this was enough time but I am a little skeptical now. We will be ferrying from Koh Lipe the same day to Hat Yao Pier and taking a taxi to Trang airport before flying to Bangkok. Is this enough time to get from DMK to BKK or are we cutting it too close? I found another option that would take us on a ferry from Koh Lipe to Pa ...

Any suggestions would be awesome! 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 ...

Koh Lipe - Koh Lipe Homestay, has anyone stayed?

Posted by paperboats87 on 10/8/2017 at 05:26

Hello! I'm hoping to find anyone who has stayed at Koh Lipe Homestay? It looks really nice on the Agoda photos and there is a positive review on this website, but it doesn't appear to be on Tripadvisor yet which I normally use to get "real" photos of a place. It would be a no-cancellation booking, so I just wanted to get personally views on the place before going forward... Thank you! ...

My boyfriend and I have 2 weeks booked in Phuket as our company are opening an office there in the future so we are going to have a look at where we would like to live and whether we can make the move.

Entire Mae Hong Son Loop by Public Transportation?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 12/8/2017 at 11:50

How easy are the connections by bus or van to do all of the Mae Hong Son Loop? I do not want to drive a car or motorcycle and am not enthusiastic about engaging a private driver. Two of us are going to Soppong for 2 nights from Chiang Mai. The service that gets us there offers several trips back in the same direction. It's not clear from the posted itinerary how connections would line up to travel on. Also it's a lot longer trip. If it is a reliable option is there a good place to bre ...

From Isaan to Ko Kut?

Posted by Shining on 14/8/2017 at 06:40

Hey there, we are planning a trip through Isaan in November and for our last couple of days a short intermezzo at the sea. I thought, it might be an idea of trying Ko Kut, as the Ko Chang Archipelago is also in the east... But it seems, it is not so easy to connect it to our route. I thought about taking a train, probably from Ubon, and it seems, as there is a connection to Kaeng Koi (?), where it might be possible to jump on the green line to Pattaya or Marp ta Put (?). But I was not able to f ...

Bangkok to Penang by train

Posted by Antaro on 27/7/2017 at 04:23

Hi there, from what I found out, it seems as if the way to go from Thailand to Penang has changed last year with the introduction of new electrical trains in Malaysia. Two questions about that, as I didn't find any info: - Is there still a train running from Thailand all the way down to Butterworth with border formalities in Pedang Basar or do I have to change trains there? - Is it still possible to buy a ticket in Thailand for the whole way or do I need to get a new ticket at the border for ...

Bangkok splurge on meal?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 16/7/2017 at 01:20

Is any fairly costly restaurant—or other extravagance—in Bangkok highly recommended as an exception to a fairly moderate travel budget? My father used to speak highly of afternoon tea at the Oriental, but it may not be all it was decades ago. I've never been to Thailand and hear that market food, etc. is of such high quality that anywhere really "nice" may just be about marketing or an atmosphere least challenging to Westerners. Any tips on how to assure the best, least disappoin ...
