Getting to Ko Rok

Posted by alhamaqi on 11/4/2009 at 18:20

I will be in Ko Phi Phi and I really want to go on a snorkeling trip at Ko Rok. All the organized trips I have seen so far go from Ko Lanta . Is there anyway I can go from Ko Phi Phi to Ko Rok without having to go to Ko Lanta first? The problem is that the trip that takes off from Ko Lanta leaves in the early morning. This means that I have to spend the night at Ko Lanta to be able to catch it. My time is limited so I can't afford to do this. Any suggestions? ...

Traveling during Monsoon season?

Posted by clinicalornot on 24/3/2010 at 06:15

Hello all, first off great website, I'm sure I'll be back with more questions and hopefully advice after my Thailand trip. My girlfriend and I are planning on arriving around July 15th - August 15th. We are unsure yet as of destinations, but since we are from Minnesota, really want to visit exotic beaches (of course among other things), however will this be a problem due to the rainy season? Does anyone suggest traveling (example) the northern part first (July) and then heading more south ...

Railay to Khao Lak in one day?

Posted by Seba on 29/11/2009 at 19:52

Hey guys, I'm soon flying from HCMC back to Bangkok to enjoy two weeks of South Thailand, but I have the following question.... would it be possible to get from Railay beach to Khao Lak in one day? If i am correct, this would mean Railay- Ao Nang by longtail, then Ao Nang-Phuket by ferry (or taxi,minivan?), then bus to Khao Lak (public, minivan?)... what would be the approximate times I'll have to leave from each point (e.g. ferry from Ao Nang to Phuket, latest bus to Khao Lak, what time w ...

Ban Krut.

Posted by stevehoward1969 on 7/3/2010 at 13:12

Hi All, I'm heading to Ban Krut for a few days R&R next week and after reading up on the place I'm looking forward to being met by paradise! A lot of the comments/forums/blogs are fairly aged and there was some talk of possible over developement coming to Ban Krut. Can anyone tell me if this is true as yet or am I still likely to find peace,quiet, and isolation (weekdays)? Also I would like to take a look around surrounding areas, can this be done comfortably on a moto-scooter, and I presume ...

Can anyone offer help in finding gainful employment in either of these tropical paradises? I'm currently teaching English in China, so the education route is a possibility. Rather than websites offering listed classifieds, I'd rather find some networking opportunities via this message. Any help or leads at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ...

I had to move my flight to BKK back a week and have just realised that I arrive at midnight, in Khao San Rd on April 13, or the first day of Songkran. I will have all my wordly goods with me - is this madness? Will a poncho and a backpack cover suffice to getting me to my hostel un-drowned? Also - does anyone know if busses from the airport to Khao San run that late? Someone meet me there! ;) Cheers ...

Carrying a Bowie knife to Thailand

Posted by Bob_White on 19/3/2010 at 02:00

Hi all, had an offbeat question that I hope you guys don't mind me asking: I'm an avid hiker and so it's not uncommon to carry a Bowie knife with me. In the time I spent in el Salvador I noticed that this was sort of common practice for a lot of people who lived there since it was densely forested. I'm now wondering if you guys could forsee any problems with carrying a Bowie withe me to Thailand. I would think it could very well be useful since most of what I want to do involves hikin and c ...

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?

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 ...
