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 ...

Posted by elysium on 13/3/2017 at 10:15

We really want to check out the must-see attractions, butwe are mainly going for a nice beach holiday. Can anyone advice uswhere t ...

Khao Lak update 2017

Posted by lucasan on 18/3/2017 at 03:26

While waiting for an update on Travelfish, I post some news from Khao Lak, where I am staying since 10 days. I happen to have a thai friend here, a fashion photographer that moved from Bangkok with his family.

Price have gone up considerably, for example The Sandy House charges now, end of march, no peak season, 1200 Baht. No discount walk-in price and no long stay discount either. They have a mi ...

Chiang Rai to Tha Ton

Posted by lucasan on 18/3/2017 at 01:55

At the end of february there was no public boat service because of low water levels. You can still hire a boat for some 2500 Baht, max 4 passengers, some 6 hrs trip. If travelling alone you probably want to go by bus. I checked both bus stations in Chiang Rai and now there are only two minibus a day, leaving the old central bus station at 8 AM and 2 PM, and stopping 30 minutes later in the new bus station before leaving Chiang Rai The minivan takes you to Fang in about 3 hours, very nic ...

Taxi from Mae Sai to Chiang Khong

Posted by DeborahInAsia on 11/2/2017 at 04:38

Hi Everyone, I have been unable to find any information about private taxi service in Mae Sai. My boyfriend and I will be crossing the border at Tachileik around midday on Feb 14th, and need to get to Chiang Khong / Huay Xai by that evening to catch a slow boat (already booked) at 8AM on Feb 15th. Ideally we would cross into Laos that evening but could do so early the next morning if necessary. I'd like to avoid having to take a bus to Chiang Rai first. It doesn't seem that there are Ma ...

Travelfish and Ko Kut in the New York Times

Posted by somtam2000 on 8/3/2017 at 16:57

Well, this qualifies as the kind of mention we love to wake up to! Travel writer Freda Moon went to Thailand for some dental work and ended up on one of our all time favourite Thai islands, Ko Kut. "On the recommendation of the indispensable Southeast Asia travel guide, Travelfish, I had made a reservation at Ngamkho Resort. A dozen or so bare-boned cabanas built of rough-hewed logs, bamboo mat-lined walls and a corrugated plastic roof, the family-run Ngamkho isn’t a resort in the typic ...

These 2 parts of the journey cost 120 baht for both.From Ban Trad cross to the other side of the road from where you were dro ...

Hello, I'd like to go from Koh Lanta to Phi Phi in the morning (I know there is a boat departing at 8:00) but is the last boat going from Phi Phi to Koh Lanta at 15:30???

Furthermore, each link I have checked (krabi, phi phi, lanta...) doesn't leave after 15:30... no boat runs after this time? is it forbidden? Thank you very much. ...

Hello, In a few weeks I'm planning to cross into Koh Kong, Cambodia from Trat, Thailand via the Hat Lek - Cham Yeam Border Crossing. However, according to Google Maps the Thailand Border Crossing Checkpoint at Hat Lek is "permanently closed." (See map here). This seems strange to me and I can't find any information on the internet about the border crossing being closed. Has anyone crossed through this checkpoint recently? Any news about whether it's open or not? Thanks!!! ...
