How much pre-booking do I need to do for a March trip?

Posted by NamManao on 25/12/2016 at 15:35

Hi all, I'm no newbie as I've been to Thailand four times, but I haven't been there since 2003. I'm looking at going in March 2017, but am wondering whether I can still "wing it" on the accommodations and domestic flights the way I have always done there in the past. That is to say, not pre-booking any hotel rooms (or flights, or anything else from the US before leaving) and just waiting until I'm there to survey the situation and choose suitable things from what's available. I've nev ...

Any experiences with Koh Tarutao and Koh Adang?

Posted by pedahlen on 10/12/2016 at 17:12

Hello! We are going to Thailand i February, and we would like to visit either Koh Tarutao or Koh Adang, but we don't know, which of the two islands that is the best? We are travelling with our 4 children in the age of 1½-11 years, so it won't be easy for us to do long walks or biking... We would like to see some beautiful nature and hopefully some exotic animals, so is there anybody who has visited one or both of the islands, and can tell us, which island they would recommend? Or is it ju ...

Reduced Koh Wai speedboat service

Posted by jps9122 on 8/12/2016 at 11:29

Hello to all. Has anybody travelled to Koh Wai lately? We're travelling there next month & have been advised that the speedboat service from Laem Ngop Pier has been reduced to one boat per day departing at 11.30am due to storm damage. As a result of the reduction in service it is now impossible to travel there in one day from Bangkok. Has anybody any experience of reaching the island by any other means, longtail hire from Koh Chang for example? I have attempted to contact the resort but to n ...

Hi to all, I would like to have your advice on the following issue: I would like to stay in Thailand for about 40/50 days - I'm Italian and I should get 30 dd visa at arrival.

What happened to Chiang Mai's Night Bazaar?

Posted by Laura11 on 21/11/2016 at 08:22

I just visited the night bazaar in Chiang Mai and was very disappointed. Is the sad, touristy market I witnessed a regular change due to increased tourism, or is this possibly due to the mourning period? My sister just arrived in Thailand to visit me, and although she had never seen a night market, even she was asking me if we were in the right area (we were). This said, where are other night or day markets in Chiang Mai that have more locals and more interesting goods and foods? ...
