Palmy Home in Ranong

Posted by corihiggins on 1/12/2017 at 08:29

The review of the Palmy Family Guesthouse in Ranong was so so about the food there and suggested eating next door. I was surprised to find that there was a new Japanese restaurant serving authentic food right at the Palmy front door. After traveling through Thailand for most of the month it was a real treat to have an alternative to the usual Thai food I’ve been eating. It’s reasonably priced, clean, and the owner obviously has been trained in Japan, he’s doing a really good job with au ...

Can anyone recommend a nice place to stay? Or the best way to Koh jum? Thanks a lot* Anna ...

The state of Thailand’s beaches

Posted by somtam2000 on 2/1/2018 at 23:24

Richard Barrow has a neat summary on the appalling state of Thailand beaches—out of 390 beaches which were surveyed only 13 were awarded five stars—and there are some pretty obscure ones in the list. As Richard says: "Back in the day, Phuket and Samui may have made this list. But sadly, those days are long gone. What we have now is not sustainable tourism. It is crazy that only 3.33% of the 390 beaches assessed are deemed clean enough to deserve a five star rating. With millions more ...

Khao Sok as a solo traveler

Posted by pobrien1902 on 17/11/2017 at 03:04

Does anyone have suggestions for a solo traveler in Khao Sok? Specifically, I’m interested in touring the lake and possibly staying the night on a floating house but would like to do so economically. I’m not crazy about the idea of taking a typical one day tour with 15 other tourists but would love to split the cost with a few other people-perhaps by hiring a boat at the pier. Is anyone there now that would be interested? Or has anyone been recently who might shed some light on what a typica ...

Five friends looking for a cycling tour to get to know Chiang Mai

Posted by trey2993 on 4/11/2015 at 00:52

Hi to all. We are five friends from Slovenia. We already made our way into the South and now we are planning to visit the North of Thailand for a week. We are going to spend 2 days in Chiang Mai and would like to get to know the city and get some info about the cultural aspects, temples, historical landmarks etc. We are thinking a cycling tour would be the best option as chiang Mai is quite flat. Any input on cycling tours in the area? What is the best? We are looking for something not expens ...

Thi Lo Su Waterfall - restricted access.

Thi Lo Su waterfalls - Umphang Please be aware there is NO PRIVATE VEHICLE ACCESS TO THECAMPSITE ANYMORE even 4x4s - you have to pay between 2000 and 2500 baht pervehicle The official reason is " Because policy of Tak Governor,he wants the people to have income" - which seems to back up my beliefthat this is a cartel or monopoly by local businesses. Apparently the governor seems to have overlooked the factthat many people who would normally stay there now won’t come atall....dep ...

Uber late-night from BKK airport?

Posted by CKDexterHaven on 27/8/2017 at 09:50

Arriving too late at night to take BTS into city. ATM withdrawal at airport would be too large demoniations for metered cab drivers to make change. I do not respect Uber as a company or an employer, but is it a good alternative for a flat fee paid by credit card? An online search suggests that Uber was banned from the airport earlier this year. Accurate? Information on where to meet driver or other tips? It's my first visit to Thailand so hope to reduce stressful unknowns after 24 hours of ...

Old Skool type Islands?

I'm looking for recommendations for "old skool" type Island - bamboo huts on the beach, decent beaches, pretty chilled etc I've been to Thailand quite a few times over the years, but not so much recently, and places change.. Last time I was there (4 years ago) I really liked *Little* Ko Chang, though it was maybe a bit too quiet and beaches weren't great. I wasn't overly keen on its neighbour Ko Phayam, which had a lot of building work going on, so it maybe even more developed now. I ...

Two weeks in Flores, Indonesia

Posted by collierconnell on 28/9/2017 at 21:35

Hey everyone, I'm looking forward to a 2 week speed trip through Flores, Indonesia traveling from Labuan Bajo to Maumere in 13 days... My main question is about the bus system as we're running a bit of a budget. Do the buses between the major cities run with any consistency going west to east or is it only a select few that run a few random times a day? I'm slightly worried about getting from Denge (post Wae Rebo) onto Ruteng for example, as it looks as if it's off the trans-Flores high ...
