Thai Sim - How long is it valid for now?

Posted by altmtl on 21/11/2015 at 19:25

Hi all, I had the same Thai number with True for a few yrs - I was last in Thailand in March '15, and am returning in Jan. '16. Due to the new rules, I was told my old number would no longer be valid when I return - is this correct? If I do need to get a new number, (I only need a 30 day plan) Then I'll be going to Indonesia for 2 months and returning to Bangkok for a week after that - will I need to get a new sim/number again? Thx ...

Hi, I am hoping someone can help. I intend to travel from Chiang Mai back towards Bangkok and on to Cambodia. I want to visit Lopburi and Kanchanburi on the way.

Hotel Suggestions in Pukhet, Ko Phi Phi, Bangkok?

Posted by FernR on 12/11/2015 at 09:03

Hi all, In late January, we're going as a family (two adults, two older teens) to Bangkok (3 nights), Pukhet (probably two nights) and Ko Phi Phi (probably another two nights) as the end part of a 40-day jaunt through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Burma. This will be our only time in Thailand (but we parents spent many weeks here years ago, as part of a one-year budget backpacking trip through Africa/Asia) and our only days at the beach. Any suggestions for the best hotels for Bangkok, Pukhet ...

Best ways to travel to and from airports?

Posted by Esseff on 10/11/2015 at 19:39

Hey guys, So I'm leaving for Bangkok on Saturday, I'd like some opinions on the best way to travel to and from the airports? We fly into the international airport, but we're also taking some domestic flights as well. Bangkok-Chiang Mai round trip and Bangkok-Krabi round trip. I'm mostly concerned about coming into the international airport and finding our way to the hotel on the first night though, as we will be sleep deprived and overwhelmed I'm sure. We're going to Phra Sumen Road, I believe ...

Bangkok: which area?

Posted by Yesterday on 26/9/2015 at 00:23

Hi all, I've read around but still a bit confused about where to stay in BKK. I'd love some advice. We like street food and little local restaurants, not interested in big shopping malls, not into nightlife scene (but might do rooftop cocktails one night) definitely not Khao San road area. Enjoy cultural sights and wandering exploring. Have considered Chinatown area and across the river from the Grand Palace. Would love a pool but not vital. Any suggestions would be great. As would any 'don't ch ...
