Question about flight from Chiang

Posted by alexizfresh on 21/5/2015 at 19:33

Planning on traveling in November. Currently researching flights . The plan for right now is to go from Miami>BKK> Chiang Mai . My question is this: when purchasing plane ticket, is it better to buy the ticket Miami to Chiang Mai ticket? Or...do I just buy Miami to Chiang Mai and then fly domestic airlines from BKK to Chiang Mai. It appears to be less expensive to do the second option. However, I'm worried about losing luggage/ having to switch airports, etc. Should I just bite the bullet ...

Video impressions of Thailand

Posted by asiantraveler on 3/5/2015 at 03:42

When I'm on holiday in Thailand besides making pictures I also try to shoot some videos. Most of the time these are just impressions of a few minutes maximum. I like to share some of these videos on this forum. Some videos will be of tourist places and therefore familiar for most people, other movies a bit less. Let's start with a video of a small village just outside of Khorat. Driving around with the scooter you get a good impression in just a few hours. http://youtu.be/e0_jxgf3Nlc ...

19 y/o travelling to SE Asia, questions!

The main reason being to meet some people and get a foothold in south-east Asia. Has anyone done a tour like this? After the tour I would really like to spend ...
