Phuket In July (or other islands..)

Posted by primozchwitzchic on 25/1/2010 at 00:54

Hello! First I would like to apologize if someone has already written some similar topic. I know there is already written a lot about raining season in Thailand, but I have looked true forum a lot, but I could find any similar topic, because I have some pretty specific questions. We have already decided that we will go to Thailand in mid July and August, and we are OK with some rain and humidity. No problem there :) 1. What I want to ask you about is a selection of islands.

What else to do or see in Bangkok after seeing almost everything???

Posted by Monula on 17/1/2010 at 18:44

Hi everyone, this is my third trip to Bangkok in last 3 months and possible the last one for some time. I stayed about 4 days each time and managed to see all important things what a tourist supposed to see...like Grand Palace, main wats, taking a boat, markets, taking 1 day trip to Kochanabury, Auyattuya, crocodile show etc. I know there's still so much to see but I need help.... I was thinking about to go to Siam Ocean World but heard it's not really worth money unless you have kids. I'm a ...

Custom Accomodations In Thailand, Specifically Koh Lipe

Posted by kenyb21 on 19/1/2010 at 15:27

Hi, all: New to Travelfish and my sister and I have a question regarding bungalow accommodations while traveling in Thailand. Our current concern is that we really like the looks of a few places on Koh Lipe, but we can't seem to find if the resorts will accommodate us with two twin beds rather than one double bed. We're not keen on sleeping in the same bed together and we're hoping not to be limited to staying in "family" sized rooms which are usually much more expensive. Has anyone been ...

BKK airport- great tranfer lounge

Posted by boleslav on 19/1/2010 at 00:59

We traveled to Bangkok and had 4 hours at the Suvarnabhumi airport between the flights. Were hoping to find a place to wait it out and found very comfortable transfer lounge with huge reclining chairs, that one can lay on as in the bed. The access to this lounge is for the passengers with any connecting flights, it's located on the 3rd level on the way to gates B1-B6. There are approx. 25 chairs, the area is quiet, a bit cold from the A/C but still that's much better option to the cold metal ch ...

Hey Folks, my family and I are planning to come to Thailand march 12... We are hoping to find a nice place to start off, near Bangkok, but in a great spot to wake up after the gruelling journey from Canada with 3 kids.....
