Visa Exempt Extension Clarification (That's a mouthful!)

Posted by TropicTeaTime on 17/10/2016 at 19:00

Hello there, I was looking for a quick bit of advice on Thailands seemingly always changing visa policies. I'm thinking about planning a trip to Thailand that will be longer than 1 month, so I will presumably need something more than the 30-day by-air visa exemption. I read that you could previously get another 30-day extension once you arrive in Thailand at an immigration office, is this still the case? If that doesn't exist anymore, is it better to just make a border run part of my itinerary ...

King Bhumibol Adulyadej has died

Posted by somtam2000 on 13/10/2016 at 06:57

Multiple sources are now reporting that Thailand's Royal Palace has released a statement announcing the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IV, who was the world's longest-ruling monarch. It is near impossible to describe how highly regarded he was by many Thais and to say this is an unprecedented event in Thai history is not an overstatement. Our condolences to the Kingdom of Thailand and her people. Because of Thailand's strict lese majeste laws, there has been virtually no official dis ...

Phuket to Koh Phi Phi - Ferry alternatives?

Posted by kpottermn on 12/10/2016 at 13:54

My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to SE Asia in March, including 3 nights in Phuket /Koh Phi Phi. The problem is that our arrival/departure times from Phuket would seem to make it impossible to spend more than one night on Koh Phi Phi based on when we can catch a ferry back to the main island. Are there any alternatives to get across the Andaman at an earlier/later hour that won't cost an arm and a leg? What little I've seen on private speedboats suggest they're pretty pricey. ...

Posted by MagsTravels on 27/9/2016 at 13:55

My husband and I are visiting Thailand and want to spend 6-7 nights on the Andaman coast at the end of October/early November 2016. We likely only have time to stay on 2 islands. Any favorites? We are looking for seclusion, and a more luxurious experience but still with lots of natural beauty and culture. Although we are only staying on 2 islands, it's possible to see more thru day trips, right? Any good day trip islands? Thanks so much! ...

Bangkok to Kanchanaburi and back

Posted by chrisTHEbeck on 10/10/2016 at 17:59

Hi, all. We are leaving Bangkok for Kanchanaburi on the early 07:45am train with the intention of staying over 1 night and returning the next day. Unfortunately the returning train to Bangkok leaves so early (2:45pm) that I can't seem to fit my itinerary around it. We are travelling to Kanchanaburi mainly for the waterfalls in Erawan National Park. As we are travelling that far it seems a shame to miss out on all the history surrounding the death railway so we'd like to incorporat ...

Need Help Deciding on the Best Time to Travel

Posted by MalcolmB on 1/10/2016 at 00:56

Hello all, I just started planning my first solo trip to South East Asia, and I've decided that Thailand will be the focus of my trip. I am looking for a quiet but adventurous trip that has a bit of everything, mountains, jungles, culture, and beaches. My plan is to take at least a month and really explore the country without a set timetable. I was thinking I would make a loop from Bangkok up north to the mountains and jungles, and finish with the south-east gulf islands/beaches. One of the t ...

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? ...
