Haad Tien Bay Koh Phangan

Posted by DannyJ on 12/3/2006 at 04:41

Hi everybody! Has anybody stayed at Haad Tien Bay on Koh Phangan? I'm planning on staying there for a couple of weeks at the Horizon Muay Thai Camp, i've been training Muay Thai for a year in the U.K and will also be training in a few different places in Thailand, to experience proper Thai training. I've read a bit about the Bay but was wondering if anyone has any personal experiences they'd care to share about the place? Also if anyone has any tips for Koh Phangan they'd like to share as well i ...

thai beaches and weather in early April

Posted by daphnehk on 16/2/2010 at 09:05

We had been planning to go to Koh Lanta in mid-March, but it just got pushed to early April, which I know is hotter and wetter. Would people still recommend going to that area, or is the weather iffy enough that another beach region is preferable - and if so, which one? Many thanks! ...

Hi All, I'm off to Ko Lanta in a few days and from there I want to travel onwards to the Perhentian Islands in Malaysia. I'm confused about the best route to take. I want to get there as quickly as possible and have been told that going back to Krabi is the best way? Has anyone done this journey before and can advise the best means of getting there (bus all the way? Bus and train?) Also is it possible to do in one day? Thanks for any help! ...

3rd Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge at NKP?

Posted by exacto on 19/2/2010 at 07:03

Does anyone know when the 3rd Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge between Nakhon Phanom and Thakhek is scheduled to open? I went past in January and it looks like they've been working on it for about a year or so. It's a good 8 km north of NKP on route 212, so I imagine there will be an international bus making the trip just like with the other two. ...

Thaksin's assets trial coming up Feb. 26

Posted by DLuek on 17/2/2010 at 09:48

Hi, It looks like the Thai courts are going to freeze former PM Thaksin Shinawatra's assets in a trial on Feb. 26, and many people are predicting major "red shirt" demonstrations and possible political violence in Bangkok if they indeed do freeze his assets. I wouldn't cancel any trips over it, but it's something to be mindful of if you're planning to be in Bangkok around that day. At the very least you'll probably see a lot more army personnel than usual - I hear they're going to try to "s ...

Thailand in-country travel advice for two weeks with toddler in Bangkok,Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta

Posted by daphnehk on 16/2/2010 at 09:17

We are traveling to Thailand for two weeks in early April, with a 20-month-old. Ideally I'd like to land in Bangkok, spend a few days there; then get a train compartment South and hit two beach locations -- one easy to get to in the vicinity of Koh Phi Phi, the second probably Koh Lanta; then fly out from Phuket. Do people have advice on (a) how to handle the travel amongst those places, and (b) where to stay with a toddler? For the travel, we are willing to get our own flotation device a ...

Songkran Holiday

Posted by blackpepper14 on 13/2/2010 at 15:09

I have just completed my travel arrangements and unknowingly they coinside EXACTLY with Songkran. I'm excited about this but have a few practical questions. I assume BKK is as good a place as any for enjoying the festival? How crazy does it get in terms of travelling around within Bangkok and/or trying to get to Chang Mai? Would it be better to hang in BKK until after before heading North? I have quite a bit of time... Also wondering about hotel/guesthouse bookings for this time? I fly in on the ...

Thailand itinerary questions :)

Hello! I will be traveling in Thailand next month and have spoken with a friend about where to go. The current itinerary is Bangkok- Ayutthaya - Kanchanaburi - Chiang Mai . My questions are: Would it be better to travel to Kanchanaburi before Ayutthaya since I will be heading north afterwards? Is it possible to get an overnight train/bus to Chiang Mai from Ayutthaya or Kanchanaburi or will I need to head back to Bangkok to get the train/bus? Lastly- how much does the train/bus usually ...
