Visa Extension

Posted by Travel2008 on 10/2/2009 at 16:02

Hi, I am going to be a victim of the new 15 day visa regulations and wondered if anyone could give me some advice. I need to extend my visa by and extra 5 days and would prefer to avoid the hassle of a visa run to Cambodia or Malaysia... Does anyone know of a travel agent in Bangkok or Surat Thani (or even the Gulf coast islands) that do visa extensions i.e. someone we can trust with our passports! If we do end up doing a visa run to Cambodia for example is it possible to just leave Thai ...

Crutches in the islands?

Posted by susette on 18/3/2010 at 19:12

I have had ACL reconstruction in Bangkok, Thailand. I will be in recovery for 4 weeks, 2 will be couch surfing with ice packs. After I regain my mobility I’d like to go to the islands for a week of hanging on the beach. However, I may still need crutches. I have been to Ko Kradan and Ko Mook in the past and know I will not be able to jump off a long boat. Getting across the sand with crutches will be difficult but possible as I am fit and have a friend to help haul bags. Any suggestions for ...

Bangkok-Phuket by bus?

Posted by cybervlad on 14/3/2010 at 23:23

Hi all, I am heading to Phuket in the beginning of April and decided to travel by bus (I have some reasons to avoid flights). I looked through several web sites and found that the buses start only from Bangkok's Southern Bus Terminal (Sai Tai Mai) in the evening. But my flight arrives to Bangkok early in the morning. Does anyone know, is there any morning buses, may be from Mo Chit bus terminal? Thanx in advance for any suggestions. ...

Railay or Lanta in May with a toddler - where to stay?

Posted by ruth678 on 17/3/2010 at 12:07

My husband, 16 month old daughter, and I are planning a trip during the first two weeks of May. We are looking for a beach that is toddler-friendly, a place that is around 3000 baht/night or less. We would like to stay in a place where our daughter can sleep separately from us so that we don't have to go to sleep when she does. My husband also wants to do some diving. We'd like to go somewhere that is fairly peaceful but also not too isolated either. Right now we are leaning towards staying ...

Bangkok to Koh Chang

Posted by mellimoon on 17/3/2010 at 05:24

Hi, can anyone tell me the best way to get to Koh Chang (lonely beach) from Bangkok? I want to arrive as early as possible in Koh Chang, but i do have a hotel for the night in BKK so an overnight journey would be silly. So early-ish morning bus might be good. It's on a Thursday. Someone told me to either take the state bus or not to - i can't remember! I really wanted to book a beach hut at Siam huts on lonely beach, but they dont answer their phone or respond to emails. If anyone knows how t ...

Special Day in Bangkok

Hi, i'm going to be in Bangkok on my boyfriends 30th birthday, i need to sort out 3 things to make the day memorable. 1. Accommodation. 2. Activities. 3. Evening Meal. I don't mind spending decent money, this will be after a month around Vietnam, so a day of luxury will be worth it. The birthday in april 7th - a Sunday i think. We've been to Bangkok before and done the obvious touristy stuff, maybe doing something a bit off the wall would be good. For a hotel, somewhere with a 50in ...
