North Thailand for a few days, ease of travel?

Posted by Dreamer33 on 25/4/2018 at 16:38

Hi there my friend and I have a few days in North Thailand, we are staying 2 days in Chiang Mai and thinking about staying at the nest in Chiang Dao for 2 nights and exploring a bit from there before we go back to CM to head to Laos. Alternatively we'll stay at CD for just 1 night and stay another night or 2 further on. My question is - is it easy enough to travel around from Chiang Dao up to Tha Ton, Mae Salong and maybe Chiang Saen on a day trip or maybe 1 night before heading bac ...

Beach areas late Feb/March

Posted by Michael29 on 18/2/2018 at 01:14

Hi, Am looking for a week’s beach getaway from Northern Thailand over the next couple of weeks. Have been checking out Thai Mueang Beach area. Trying to avoid the hordes of tourists and looking for ‘clean beach areas,’ bungalow or such for under 1000-1500 Baht per night and good local foods - hopefully seafood to enjoy. Plus also gotta consider areas that’ll be reasonably dry. Look forward to replies. Cheers, Michael ...

Koh Phangan - Which beach?

Posted by ladelstal on 2/4/2018 at 05:12

Hi! Would like to get your view on the beaches on Koh Phangan. We are a family with 2 teenagers (14 & 16). We don't want to go to a resort beach yet neither to an isolated beach with few options to eat and socialize. We are used to traveling. We are looking for a beach with a nice laidback vibe, where you can walk on the beach and find alternatives for eating with feet in the sand; sit in the shade and take a drink or read a book. Although we have teenagers we are not looking for a party pla ...

Advise for a family traveling June-July

Posted by yearn2travel on 22/3/2018 at 06:23

Our family plans to travel mid June to mid July to SEA. We have always made our own set itinerary but with it being the rainy season we thought crowds would be lower and traveling without a set plan could provide more flexibility to change depending on the weather. Would anyone advise going to Khao San Road to pick an island to visit in late June? Are there plenty of travel agents in that area that could steer us to a quite beach that has a local vibe? Is booking with a travel agent in there ...

Hi, I'm planning to spend a couple of days on Yao Yai in end- November, a night in Phi Phi and 3-4 days in Koh Mook. Is it possible to get a boat (ferry) directly from Yao Yai to Phi Phi or do I need to go back to Phuket and head from there? I don't want to hire a pvt speedboat as it seems expensive.

At David - Wat Suthat

Posted by Tilapia on 27/2/2018 at 13:14

Hi David, I followed the latest Soapbox to your Twitter feed and saw the image of the Wat Suthat signs, and the comment that "Wat Suthat in Bangkok has raised its ticket for foreigners from 20 to 100 baht. Free for Thais." You should also have added that after sundown, the best time to visit Wat Suthat, the ticket booth is closed. At that time the temple is free for everyone, and it's open 24 hours to the best of my knowledge. Cheers, Tilapia ...

Chiang Mai food tours?

Posted by Danila on 22/2/2018 at 04:18

Greetings, sorry if this has already been posted about, I searched several times, different key words, but couldn't find anything. Currently enjoying Chiang Mai. We have another 10 days or so here, have been enjoying wandering around, and following some of TF's recommendations. Does anyone have a recommendation for either a walking or perhaps cycling foodie tour of Chiang Mai? We often eat at night market stalls, but not speaking the language makes it a bit tricky to dive deeper into the local c ...

Diving in Thailand February?

Posted by Danila on 25/10/2017 at 10:42

Greetings, we're planning a bit more SE Asia, and looking to the wonderful Travelfish team for some answers again please! Background: older couple, 20+ years diving, lots of places! We know that Thailand tends to be more of a learning to dive place, but with about 6 weeks in country, we're thinking of spending a week or so diving. Timeframe is February, so I think both east and west are pretty ok weatherwise. We've decided against a liveaboard, as it's just a bit too intense for us, we prefer 2- ...

Thailand travel itinerary in May?

Posted by Monica07 on 21/1/2018 at 05:48

Hello! I'm new here and hoping for some advice on Thailand in May - We have two weeks from 6th to 21st and are flying into and out of Bangkok. From what I've read of the weather we are best to completely avoid the south west and head straight for the south east? Any advice or confirmation of this would be greatly appreciated, as I was looking forward to seeing Phuket/Krabi/Phi Phi islands but if we're going all that way I don't want to be uncomfortable the whole time. If Koh Samui/Koh Phanga ...

Update on buses from Phuket airport to Phuket Town

Posted by antoniamitchell on 16/1/2018 at 18:23

Hi everyone, Just a quick update on my recent experience of the buses and mini buses from Phuket airport into Phuket Town . Although the mini bus desks all still list Phuket Town as a destination, none of them will sell you a ticket to Phuket town. I was variously told no buses went to Phuket town and I should take a taxi; that the buses did go but I'd missed the last one for the day so I should take a taxi; that the buses did go but only once every 3 hours so I should take a taxi; etc. ...

Palmy Home in Ranong

Posted by corihiggins on 1/12/2017 at 08:29

The review of the Palmy Family Guesthouse in Ranong was so so about the food there and suggested eating next door. I was surprised to find that there was a new Japanese restaurant serving authentic food right at the Palmy front door. After traveling through Thailand for most of the month it was a real treat to have an alternative to the usual Thai food I’ve been eating. It’s reasonably priced, clean, and the owner obviously has been trained in Japan, he’s doing a really good job with au ...
