China Visa in Bangkok?

Posted by Wanderluster on 13/4/2012 at 19:24

I am returning to Southeast Asia for a couple months at the end of April and have an extended layover in Beijing on the way home. My friends and I plan on leaving the airport since we have 11 hours to spare and thought it would be a great opportunity to check out one last place before we head back home to Canada. I have tried to research the visa situation for China, but have come up with conflicting reports. I know that China does allow airport transfers without visa from Pudong to Hongqiao. ...

Ban Chiang Museum

Posted by cuscus on 12/2/2016 at 02:26

HI There! I will be in Udon Thani next month and am hoping to take a day out to visit the Ban Chiang museum for a few hours. Can anyone give me an idea if it's better to stay the night in the town near the museum or better to go back to Udon Thani for the night? I would be driving up to Vientiane the next day or possibly later that night, depending on what else there might be to see in the very nearby area. I have read it's about 50 kilometers from the city but not sure what area ne ...

Thai Visa

Posted by tristanwillow on 2/2/2016 at 03:17

We're currently in Cambodia and planning on getting a bus into Bangkok because flights are so expensive, however, this will only give us 15 days with the free visa-exemption and we want to spend a month before we leave for home! Can we obtain a visa in Bangkok when we get there? How much is it going to cost and how long would it take? What does everyone suggest thank you so much for your help! ...

Krabi (Ao Nam Mao) or Ko Lanta with Kids in April

Posted by orchid7798 on 26/1/2016 at 09:03

We are planning a trip to Krabi in April for 9 days and need help deciding between Krabi and Ko Lanta. We live in SE Asia and have two kids (3 and 6). We like to split our days with some beach time and some adventure (snorkling, kayaking, visiting other beaches, motorbike trips around, etc.) Would anyone recommend one over the other (or both)? We have found a quiet hotel in Ao Nam Mao that seems to be away from the business of Ao Nang, but I'm wondering if we can rent motorbikes and get arou ...

We are planning to go backpacking around Thailand from Oct 1st to Novemeber 22th. This is part of a 5 months route. We are arriving to Bangkok, so our plan was to visit north Thailand first and then head south to the beaches and cross to Malasia at the end of December.

My questions are: - Which would be the best route or places to visit during October and November wi ...

Newly updated: Nakhon Si Thammarat

Posted by somtam2000 on 1/2/2016 at 03:43

We've just finished the update on another little visited southern Thai provincial capital, Nakhon Si Thammarat which sees an amazingly low number of foreign travellers considering where it is location. Not far from Khao Luang National Park and Baan Khiri Wong and the town itself has a bunch of worthwhile attractions, including a shadow puppet museum and David put together a neat cultural walk. Check it out! ...

New coverage: Khanom and Sichon

Posted by somtam2000 on 1/2/2016 at 01:55

We used to have some very basic coverage on this area wrapped us as beaches near NST, but we've thrown all that out and have a great new section on the beach strip of Khanom and Sichon - an area which will appeal to those looking for unadulterated Thailand. If areas like Ban Krut and Bang Saphan appealed, then this area is going to be right up your alley. The best way to explore the area is to just get a bike and get going, so that's just what we did. ...

Surat Thani updated and expanded

Posted by somtam2000 on 1/2/2016 at 01:50

We've just finished updating our coverage for Surat Thani - including the historic town of Chaiya which lies a little to the north. Now I know a lot of you have probably blown through Surat Thani on the way to the islands, but give it a look - you'll find we were able to dig up some interesting things to do, including a boat ride on the Tapi River (homestays available) a good look around Chaiya and, of course, a bit of a poke around Wat Suan Mokkh. Why were you racing to the islands again? ...
