Despite what the Indian Embassy (and travelfish - not blaming you guys) websites says, non thai nationals - ie farangs cannot apply for a visa to visit India in Bangkok. Nor Malaysia Indonesia or Singapore. This can really mess with your travel plans. More info here. ...

Bangkok: which area?

Posted by Yesterday on 26/9/2015 at 00:23

Hi all, I've read around but still a bit confused about where to stay in BKK. I'd love some advice. We like street food and little local restaurants, not interested in big shopping malls, not into nightlife scene (but might do rooftop cocktails one night) definitely not Khao San road area. Enjoy cultural sights and wandering exploring. Have considered Chinatown area and across the river from the Grand Palace. Would love a pool but not vital. Any suggestions would be great. As would any 'don't ch ...

Thailand's new six-month tourist visa

Posted by somtam2000 on 28/10/2015 at 18:45

Thailand announced a new six-month tourist visa some time ago and there is a blog post on it here that goes through some of the possible advantages of it.

As always with Thailand's ever changing visa regulations, the devil is in the small print, and, if the conditions are all enforced, it isn't really all that viable a visa for a longer term tourist to Thailand. ...

Hi, Flight to Thailand booked! First stop is Bangkok. Initial stop is Bangkok and we will stay in Khao San Road before heading south. We will be then back in Bangkok at the end of the trip.

Ko Lanta or Ko Lipe for NYE?

Hiya - we are 2 x single 35 year old girls coming to Thailand for NYE. We have time for a few days in PhiPhi and are then trying to decide where to go next. Both Lanta and Lipe have been recommended, but we don't want anywhere too too quiet - we want to be meeting and hanging out with other travellers. We are not looking for CRAZY nightlife, but just a few lively bars if we fancy a nite out. Both places look amazing, but I have conflicting reports as to nightlife. It will obviously be peak ...

Hi, So I find myself in Sukhothai and I'm wondering where to head next. I read that it is possible to hop into Myanmar for the day at this border crossing(or at least it was possible).
