Ten days in Thailand- October 16

Posted by Sd1234 on 28/9/2016 at 04:34

Hi everyone Me and my girlfriend have booked some last minute flights to Bangkok and would really appreciate some guidance with our 10 day itinerary. We are hoping to have some cultural days followed by some down time on the beach. We land at Bangkok around 7am on Tues 11th October. We were thinking of saving Bangkok for future travel plans. Instead we would get a bus to the national airport and fly straight to Chiang Mai. We thought to stay here until the Saturday. On the Saturday we were c ...

Any reason to worry about recent attacks?

Posted by MalcolmB on 26/9/2016 at 22:59

I have been thinking about planning a trip to southeast asia and Thailand was one of my top picks to see. Some of the recent newsletters I received from this site mentioned bombings and attacks, but I haven't received an update on the situation. Is there reason to worry about such attacks, and what should new travelers know about the safety of traveling there? Thanks, Malcolm ...

30 day visa and then a 60 day visa, ok??

Posted by claxius on 20/9/2016 at 07:33

I'm currently in India and plan to fly into Bangkok - get the 30 day visa on arrival - stay in Bangkok long enough to get a visa for Vietnam - take the bus into Cambodia, stay a while, and then onto Vietnam - spend a few weeks in Vietnam - and then I was hoping to get a 60 day Thai visa in Hanoi - then continue on through Laos back down to Thailand. So basically I'd like to know if it's ok to get a 60 day Thai visa after I've already received a 30 day visa earlier. Or can I only get a 30 day? ...

Destinations in Koh Samui

Posted by Jessicagh7 on 19/8/2016 at 09:32

Hi, I have booked to travel to Koh Samui next year for 5 days next. I am currently staying in Lamai and the Manathai Hotel which looks lovely however I am worried it's going to be too quiet and have the opportunity to move up to Chaweng instead (The Baan Talay). The most important thing to me is great restaurants / bars and lots to do in the day ie watersports/boat trips. I am aware Chaweng is a lot busier but also more expensive. Can anyone confirm what they would recommend? (for a young coup ...

Using a 60 day visa for second entry to Thailand

Posted by skinnybiker on 13/9/2016 at 15:04

I'm sure this question has been asked before but it's difficult to find an answer; a small group of us are cycling in SE Asia this winter making two entries in to Thailand both by land borders. The first will be for only a week but the second will be for about three weeks. Us Brits are OK with the 30 day visa exempt but our Aussie mate is a bit stumped as has only 15 days at land border crossings. So the question is can a 60 day single-entry visa be used for the second visit - the first visit be ...

Hi everyone, I will be travelling to Phuket in October (sailing, yay!) and I am trying to find out about getting a SIM card at Phuket airport.

Can someone give me more information? Does True (or also other mobile companies) have a shop at the airport now and ...
