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. However, after reading about the weather we are a bit worried now It seem like October is the worst moment to visit Thailand. 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? ...

Hello, Myself, mother, husband and 3 year old are traveling to Bangkok in mid November for two weeks.

Following on from the random banning of rock climbing on Ko Yao Noi/Yai Thai govt authorities have just banned all rock climbing on Ko Phi Phi . Says the Phuket Gazette: "We have already explained to nine tour operators offering climbing tours in the Noppharat Thara - Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park area that they must suspend their services until they gain the necessary permission from us,” Sorayut Tansathian, the chief of the national park, told Phuket Gazette. “I am sure othe ...

Thailand by train

Posted by asiantraveler on 24/12/2015 at 13:52

Traveling by train through Thailand is a lot of fun. You can meet local people and enjoy some nice scenery. And it's cheap!!! Bur for this you have to travel 3rd class and during daytime. I made a trip from Udonthani to Khorat, right through the rural part of Thailand with a stopover at Khon Kaen . I will post some videos of the trip the next few weeks. First part is from Udonthani to Khon Kaen. Udonthani is a large city in the north east of Thailand and about an hour from the border ...

Advice on Thai island hopping between April/May

Posted by Natashasusan on 21/1/2016 at 03:43

Hi all. I'm embarking on an extended backpacker trip throughout Southeast Asia following 1 week in Bali. From April 20, I'm looking to loosely plan a month of island hopping in the Thai Gulf. I've only ever visited Koh Yao Noi (twice) and this island is a must see for me, again! I am wondering the best town/route to start with. The other islands I want to visit are Ko Lipe (to make day trips across to Ko Adang), Ko Bulon Lae, Ko Muk (maybe) and Ko Jum. I'm an experienced traveller and hav ...

Ko Phayam in May?

Posted by geo_shack on 21/1/2016 at 08:41

Hi folks. Just going to be ending a trip in Myanmar with 10 days or so relaxation in Thailand. We intend to spend a few days at Koh Sok National park then on to an Island... I realise the rainy season will be starting in May...will Ko Phayam likely be too wet to enjoy the beach around this time? (Mid may). Or would we be better off trying to find a quiet part on Ko Pha-Ngan or Ko Samui at this time of year for a few days beach bumming? No interest in partying etc. Thanks in advance for ad ...
