Looking for location suggestions for a few months living in one spot in SE Asia

Posted by wkistler on 11/4/2016 at 17:55

I see a lot of requests for extensive itineraries for folks looking to see it all in a month. This one is different. I'm seeking some solace for a few months to work on myself, read, meditate and become a better human, and leave wherever I go better than how I found it, in whatever way is allowed by my Visa. I could do this in the States, or anywhere really. But it's also an opportunity to see a part of the world and a culture I've never experienced before. For many of us these opportunities ...

Horrendous assault in Hua Hin over Songkran

Posted by somtam2000 on 27/4/2016 at 22:11

A security video emerged last night (viewer discretion advised!) of a horrendous assault on three elderly British tourists in Hua Hin in Southern Thailand. While the assault happened some time ago (over Songkran) the video has only just surfaced online. While sadly assaults like this are not uncommon in Thailand, especially by groups of young Thai guys (and is probably one of the reasons the video is being largely ignored by Thai media), this is unusual for it happening in the heart of a to ...

Phuket to Koh Lanta Ferry?

Hi, I live in Chiang Mai with my wife, we have some family visiting in May and will be staying on Koh Lanta for 5 nights. We are flying into Phuket and spending our first night there and then I was hoping to take a ferry to Koh Lanta from Phuket. I've looked a little bit at Ferries that you can book online and they seem really expensive (1100baht+) for the full trip, I understand that they stop at Koh Phi Phi on the way which I don't have a problem with. But I am trying to find something t ...

Receiving mail in Thailand

Hello, so I just realised my debit card will be expiring at the end of the month. However I am leaving the UK for a 3 month trip around Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam on Sunday. Understandably, my bank aren't able to send me a new card in this short space of time. The guy on the telephone explained that my only option is for my family to send my new card to wherever I'm staying. I'll hopefully be in Chiang Mai by the time it arrives, so does anyone had any experiences with receiving post ...

Hi, I need some help with my first significant trip to SEA. I have a flight booked to BKK from late Oct to mid Dec, otherwise my plan is a blank piece of paper. I am travelling solo, 57 yrs, male, very fit and much more a backpacker by nature than 5 star guy, though I will be willing to splurge here and there. Also would love to do most of the trip by motorbike if possible but I'm thinking if I do that, then border crossing is not so feasible. Otherwise I would be keen on Laos and Cambodia i ...

Trek & Hill Tribes in Northern Thailand

Posted by jonberardi on 18/4/2016 at 23:19

Hi All, I will be in Northern Thailand with my two children (ages 6, 9) for about one week. We would like to experience a somewhat off the beaten path trek for a couple days to explore nature and visit hill tribes. I did a trek in Pai about 12 years ago and loved it but get the sense that it's more heavily flooded with tour groups. Any recommendations (areas, specific guides) that can fit our needs? Would it be worth the visit to the Mae hong son area or somewhere further west? We're ultima ...
