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

Posted by mellimoon on 8/3/2010 at 06:18

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 ...

Which hotel closest to Bangkok's train station would you recommend?

Posted by TravelAddictBaby on 13/3/2010 at 15:59

Good day all, I'll be staying in Bangkok (on this particular trip) for one night only. Arriving in by the airport and will be getting the train to Surat Thani very early the next day. Would be handy to stay close (if not next) to the Train Station. If there's a hotel you'd recommend, I'd be delighted to hear your choice and why. Thank you, Your World Friend, The Brit :) ...

Myself and my boyfriend are flying into Bangkok on 1st May and flying out of Singapore on 10th July.

Thailand/SE Asia in April

Posted by spearx on 12/3/2010 at 04:16

Hey all, I feel like I made a mistake and booked a trip to Bangkok from April 6 to May 6. After doing some research, I see that SE Asia can be brutally hot during this period. Not only this, some of the areas in Northern Thailand aren't as beautiful as they are during other seasons. My wife and I have the time to travel pretty much anywhere in SE Asia from Bangkok. We love the outdoors and the experience of natural beauty and culture. Any suggestions on where to go to avoid the heat? i.e. ...

Which SEA route to take???

I’m arriving to Bangkok on March 18th and will spend about a week or so here mainly to get used to the climate (First time in SEA). I’m planning on visiting Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos for as long as each visa allows and travelling throughout each country. My problem is that I’m not sure which route to take, so advice would be much appreciated and taken on board. Right now I’m leaning towards (Option 1) Bangkok to Chang Mai to Laos to Vietnam to Cambodia. The 2nd option is Bangkok to C ...
