Rental Car advice

Posted by mtnmichelle on 20/9/2018 at 14:56

My husband and I are planning to travel to Ayutthaya, Khao Yai and then East towards the Laos border and back down again towards Trat and Koh Kut. We want to rent a car for most of this journey and we expect to travel for month or so. Where is the best place to rent a car? Should we do it in Bangkok and simply return it there? If we go to Koh Kut is there a safe place to park a car in Trat? Would people recommend renting cars in multiple destinations and taking buses for the longer portions of ...

Banhin Rom Pier to Ko Yao Noi

Posted by kimct on 2/9/2018 at 14:31

I'm trying to see how to get from Phang-Nga area to Ko Yao Noi mid-December...on a Sunday! From info I found it seems like it will be impossible to find a public ferry on this day, so this means I shall either have to travel to Phuket and get a ferry from there... or hire a private boat? Has anyone done this before and has an idea of how much this would cost? And of so, is it even possible to hire a private boat from the Banhin Rom Pier instead of Tha Dan Pier? Thanks in advance! ...

Islands in Thailand, a definitive guide

Posted by somtam2000 on 27/8/2018 at 02:19

So, David went a bit mad and wrote what I’d say is close to a definitive guide to Thailand’s islands. In this 8,000 word epic, he touches on 109 island in the country. Yes, you read that right, One Hundred and Nine. Welcome to the Travelfish society of island nerds. Broken into six regional groups, there should be some new ones here even for the most dedicated Thai island bum. So please take a look, share it with your friends and do post below letting us know how many of these you have bee ...

Sand flies on Koh Kut

Posted by kjay on 31/5/2018 at 18:55

Hi, I'm travelling with my family to Thailand in January. We are looking at going to Koh Kut for a week and are interested to know how bad the sand flies are. We spent a week on Koh Mak in 2010 and were covered in bites by the end - I also reacted badly to the bites, needing to attend the clinic for medication. Is Koh Kut similar with sand flies?? Thanks! ...

New: Bangkok to the islands the slow way

Posted by somtam2000 on 5/8/2018 at 01:02

We’ve been slowly working through our itineraries to make them a bit more useful and just wanted to plug the latest one, which we’ve titled Bangkok to the islands the slow way. Most travellers head from Bangkok to Chumphon or Surat Thani by an overnight train or bus (or via a quick flight) skating past quite a few interesting spots along the way. So what we did was take the existing route, but figured out how you could spend three weeks doing it rather than 12 hours. I imagine some of ...

Thailand itinerary advice

Posted by mtnmichelle on 2/8/2018 at 14:08

Hello all, My husband and I are arriving in Thailand in October and plan to spend 10 days in Bangkok and then move towards Isaan and then eventually down towards Trat and Koh Kut. My question for everyone here is does it make sense to visit Isaan and then cut through Cambodia to see Angkor Wat and then re-enter Thailand near Trat? We will be in the region for 6 months and will be visiting Cambodia later in our travels but geographically it seems we will be close to Angkor Wat and it may ...

Risk of being denied entry with 60 day visa and intent to extend visa? Flight home later than 6odays

Posted by Draspe on 12/7/2018 at 11:46

Family of four, kids 2 and 5 years old. Swedish citizens. We are going to Thailand this winter and would like to stay for about 80-90 days. We are confused regarding the visa rules. We do understand that it is possible to extend the 60 days tourist visa with 30 days from within Thailand witch would suit us perfect. But reading on the webpage of the thai embassy of Sweden it seems like they can deny us from entering Thailand - if we are trying to enter Thailand without a flight ticket out of Thai ...

A day in Phuket... looking for a place to secure baggage while moseying around

Posted by mtbakerstu on 29/6/2018 at 14:39

I have my flight booked to Thailand! And as I'm sure many have experienced, the flights back to the states depart at odd hours. I have a flight that departs at 1 am. This leaves me with a full day in Phuket before moseying over to the airport in the late hours to catch this flight. Does anyone have input regarding where I might stow my baggage while I explore a day in Phuket? I won't be staying at a hotel where I might ask them to hold onto my baggage while I explore. Enthused for any ...

Island research December..

Posted by mtbakerstu on 16/6/2018 at 19:38

Researching islands as the second stage of a two and a half week trip to Thailand in December. Honestly, I'm finding it a bit daunting trying to find the right island combination that would provide some degree of beachside serenity, combined with easy walking reach to a social atmosphere. It seems June might be a little late in the game to make accommodation reservations as some of the middle range places recommended on the Travelfish site here appear booked in the areas I've researched. I wa ...

Looking for village recommendations

Posted by mtbakerstu on 10/6/2018 at 12:14

Hello, I'm planning my first trip to Thailand in December, and am giving myself a couple of weeks. My plan is to spend a small amount of time in Bangkok, and from there travel to Chiang Mai. I would also like to spend some time in some small Buddhist village that is more esoteric, off the more mainstream path. After my time in the north, I will spend some time on the islands before heading home. Would love to get some suggestions! Thanks in advance for any feedback. Mtbakerstu ...

Beach Recommendations on Phuklet

Posted by jahoran on 21/5/2018 at 08:34

Good morning all, My wife and I are visiting Myanmar in September (not an ideal time we know but the only weeks we could get holidays ). It seems like Ngapali will be closed down for the Monsoon season so we are flying home via Phuket to take a few nights to relax. What I was hoping to get was a recommendation for a nice beach or a nice hotel for 3 nights. We would like somewhere relaxing and luxurious but don't want to feel 'trapped' at the hotel and would like to be able to walk to other ...
