14 day visa extension for Thailand?

Posted by danyagreenfield on 6/5/2015 at 10:58

I've read conflicting reports about this so would appreciate updated information - I'm a US citizen and did NOT apply for a visa in advance (didn't think I'd be here longer than a month), rather I received the 30 day visa at the airport. It expires May 15 but I would now like to extend for 14 days. Can anyone verify whether this is possible at the immigration office in Bangkok, or if the maximum extension is only 7 days? If so, what is the cheapest and easiest border run from Bangkok to get a ...

Bangkok Ecotourism

Posted by DawitJoe on 18/4/2015 at 09:33

Hi, I'm a Thai student from Webster University doing research on ecotravel. I had been living in Bangkok, Thailand for most of my life, and I believe that there are many hidden gems for ecotourism in the great city that are often understated. This and this, are great examples that are right in the middle of Bangkok. If you got a few minutes for a survey, I'd appreciate it. But if you don't, here's a few questions: The outskirts of Bangkok has several unique ecotourism attractions, such as crocod ...

Learn Scuba Diving in Koh Lanta in May

Posted by sunkohsun on 27/4/2015 at 01:39

Hi there, I'm thinking of learning scuba diving in open waters between May 6-12. I've read much info saying best time is Feb - April and seas are dangerous (that's why no ferry service) from May onwards - that's why it's a low tourist season. But I've also read from one website that says May is the best month for scuba diving in Koh Lanta. This will be my first time, and I hope to get a padi open water certificate, and of course, enjoy my first dive. I don't want to book and then the seas are n ...

Reserving rooms ahead?

Posted by Olivcar on 13/4/2015 at 10:03

I am planing a trip to Thailand and Cambodia for January and February 2016. We are looking for flashpacker to midrange guesthouses or hotels. I have looked around on Agoda and Booking.com and so many of my choices say "Not available for those dates." Is it possible that these places are already booked up for next year? Is it necessary or advisable to make reservations ASAP? I traveled in Thailand many years ago and it was fine to arrive and just look for a place. Must I reserve ahe ...

Spend 4 days in Khao Lak solo?

Posted by allofthelights on 10/11/2012 at 14:54

I am doing a 7D Similian liveaboard from Khao Lak in December, and have 4 days to spend before flying to Chiang Mai (liveaboard finishes evening 16th, I fly out evening 20th). I assume I have had my diving fill although I can probably be convinced to do more, but I'm primarily looking for a place to chill-out without doing too much, hanging out with likeminded people. I'm traveling solo until I reach Chiang Mai, and fit firmly in the flashpacker category. I get the impression Khao Lak isn't ...

Northern Thailand - Chiang Dao or Tha Ton

Posted by danyagreenfield on 19/4/2015 at 06:22

I've been in Chiang Mai a couple days and would like to go further north to spend about 4-5 days in a more remote, peaceful setting where I can do some trekking (perhaps to visit hill tribes) and explore the natural surroundings (caves, waterfalls, hiking). Does anyone have suggestions about whether it would be better to stay in Chiang Dao versus Tha Ton? Which is less touristy but still has some trekking options that won't be exorbitantly expensive for one person traveling alone? Thanks! ...

On animals, and animal abuse, in Thailand

Posted by somtam2000 on 30/3/2015 at 09:34

From the latest newsletter: On animals A couple of days ago a beach club in Phuket posted a collection of photos from a Sunday brunch event on their Facebook page. A number of the photos showed a baby elephant being led around poolside and at times being ridden by a man drinking. Once the photos were shared online, the response was fast and not at all positive. A discussion on Jamie Monk's Facebook page elicited tonnes of comments and shares -- the comments were near universally negative. ...
