3 week itinerary -- am I not doing enough?

Posted by alexizfresh on 30/8/2015 at 07:26

Fiance and I are in our late 20s and are doing an almost 3 week honeymoon (19 days) in Thailand this November. Were flying in from Miami (hooorray for 26 hour flights!) 11/17-11/20 Bangkok (overnight train ) 11/21-11/27 chiang mai (flight) 11/27 - 12/5 ko lanta So as you can see, were trying to keep it simple. I'm a firm believer in "less is more", especially because this is our honeymoon. However, I just want to make sure that we arent board at any times. I was thinking one other de ...

Can you help me with my itinerary?

Posted by Esseff on 22/8/2015 at 20:31

Hi everyone, My friend and I are traveling to Thailand for 2 weeks, between November 14-28. We're taking backpacks but we're staying in moderate hotels. This is our first time in Thailand. Here's what we've got (for reference, I'll list the day of the week and date if it makes it easier): We fly from Toronto to Bangkok, arrive in Bangkok at 21:30, we have a hotel booked for that night (Sun15). The following day we're in Bangkok and we're taking a sleeper train to Chiang Mai (Mon16). We'll spe ...

3 weeks Thailand: This is my itinerary, what do you think?

Posted by lolovitch on 26/8/2015 at 04:16

Hi all, new member checking in, wishing you all the best with your respective travels! We plan a three-week well deserved holiday in Thailand for February next year. My wife and I have been to Thailand previously but it will be a first time for our 4-year old son. While I am convinced that he is old enough not only to accompany us but also to enjoy such a trip, planning automatically becomes a little more elaborate and you ask yourself more questions as a father Currently, we are considering ...

Considering this route, any advice appreciated.

Posted by BuzzmFrog84 on 20/12/2014 at 12:47

MADMAC recommended this route to me and I like the sound of it. I was wondering if anyone had any tips/advice for any of these places or the process of the travel. The time frame is about a month. I'll hopefully have $5,000 USD to spend after my plane ticket. Starting in Trat, to Phimai and Prahear Vihar. Next is Chaiyaphum followed by Leoi. The last stop is Chiang Khan . How do these places sound with the time frame of a month? Also, Would it be best to fly straight to Trat? As f ...

Bangkok to Hua Hin

Posted by flyer99 on 22/7/2015 at 10:14

We are four adults travelling from Bangkok to Hua Hin and returning to Don Mueang airport in mid October. Since there are four of us with luggage, I thought we might just rent a van and driver. But cost is a major factor. Getting scheduled bus or mini-van may be option but then we still have to get to pick up points and airport, which will add to the cost (not to mention handling luggage). Anyone have any specific suggestions? Thanks ...

Foreign exchange -- best way to do this

Posted by flyer99 on 12/8/2015 at 09:51

There does not seem to be any recent data on this, so thought I would ask. I am trying to figure out the best way to get Thai Baht with Canadian dollars. The web site XE.com says that 10,000 THB should cost about $370., but my bank wants $402. I realize they will get at least 2.5% more than the international daily rate but this amounts to nearly 10% -- ridiculous. So, if anyone is in Bangkok right now, could you please check the board at a local exchange place and tell be what the rate is ...

I have traveled quite a bit and enjoy fast paced travel - so for something this incredibly short I would like to make the most of it and hopefully get a sampler of some cool places to visit in the region ...

Is Kanchanaburi super touristy? how about Sukhothai?

Posted by Yesterday on 10/8/2015 at 01:07

Hi, I wondered if Kanchanaburi is super touristy along the lines of Chiang Mai? I really don't like the super tourist vibe (eg. Chiang Mai, Hoi An, Siem Reap, Ubud). But I would like to go to Erawan National Park and wondered how long to spend in Kanchanaburi. I'm not really interested in any war history. From there Sangkhlaburi would be the plan. I also think Sukhothai looks like a lovely town, thoughts? Just to describe what sort of experience I enjoy - swimming in waterfalls, some cycli ...

Snorkeling from the shore in November?

Posted by benzine4 on 2/8/2015 at 12:56

As part of a six-month trip in SEA we are looking for a good spot for snorkeling from the shore during the last three weeks of November. We feel overwhelmed by the hundreds of possibilities and still not sure how to deal with the changing weather of November though it seems the west coast is a better guess. We are two quiet persons in the fifties. We don't mind snorkelling at the same place over and over, we like to find a spot and stay there for a few weeks, 3 in this case. Budget is limited b ...

BEWARE Travex 'Phantip' bus rip off Bangkok to Krabi / Ao Nang

Okay, Travex booked our travel arrangements by email from the UK. Great they booked and train and transfer to Krabi . This side of their service we can't fault. Whilst they were arranging our travel their communication was very good. However things have changed since I've put in a complaint against the bus service they use between Surat Thani and Krabi. Online the over night train arrives in ST station at about 7. We were about 45 minutes late, you come to expect small delays but we were not ...
