BEWARE Travex 'Phantip' bus rip off Bangkok to Krabi / Ao Nang

Posted by cornishcouple on 10/8/2015 at 22:37

Okay, Travex booked our travel arrangements by email from the UK. Great they booked and train and transfer to Krabi . This side of their service we can't fault. Whilst they were arranging our travel their communication was very good. However things have changed since I've put in a complaint against the bus service they use between Surat Thani and Krabi. Online the over night train arrives in ST station at about 7. We were about 45 minutes late, you come to expect small delays but we were not ...

phuket to koh samui by car

Posted by davsteer on 4/8/2015 at 14:35

hi, we are in Phuket for 2 weeks soon and want to go over to koh samui for a few nights - I would like to drive it and get the ferry, we are going with 2 kids and would like any info or advise as to how manageable or brave this is??

14 days in Thailand over ambitions?

Posted by auroraphillips on 2/8/2015 at 08:19

Hi there, we are planning a trip for the first couple of weeks in October and would like some advise/suggestions please. My friends are visiting Thailand for the first time and I'd like to be able to show them as much as Thailand has to offer. We are a fairly active group of ladies (late 20s) so laying about in the sun isn't something we are too interested in, we are also definitely past it for Full Moon parties too. Maybe a break by the beach once or twice would be nice. We are really intereste ...

Bad experience at Ning's Place, Prachup Khiri Khan

Posted by galapapuss on 6/8/2015 at 05:38

Firstly, I'd like to say that I don't criticise accommodation providers lightly as I recognise that there are often 2+ sides to a story. In this case, however, I feel sufficiently incensed to override such sensitivity. Apologies if this is in the wrong section/forum but I couldn't find a review option on the accommodation listing page. I called at this brightly-hued Rasta -themed place at 2pm one afternoon to enquire if a room would be available later that week. I was looking to book for at lea ...

What would you do with 3 weeks...

Posted by alexizfresh on 20/7/2015 at 13:14

Was planning on doing a longer trip in south east Asia but looks like the lady and I will just be sticking to Thailand this trip. We've never been before. All we have planned so far is that we're flying in/out of BKK. We would like to spend some time in Chiang mai , and somewhere in the southern islands. As for the southern islands, I don't think we are particularly crazy about "raging" or doing any full moon partying. We also aren't in to scuba. So, other than that...were pretty mu ...

Hello everyone! My wife and I are planning a trip to Thailand in mid-August. We are celebrating our 1st year wedding anniversary, and I'm planning it to be a "second honeymoon".

I'll be using flights to move from one place to another to save time. My main interests: - We don't like crowded cities, we ...

I'm currently in Penang and hoping to cross overland into Thailand in the next few days. I'm from the U.S. and everything I've read online says that I should get a 30 day visa on arrival no matter if I enter Thailand overland or via air, yet when I called the consulate in Penang I was told I would only get a 15 day visa overland. Has anyone from the U.S. (or any other G7 country) done this crossing recently? What should I expect? Thanks! ...
