Can't afford the flights to Ko Samui. So we have two choices: Get flights to Surat Thani which arrive at either at 12.55 or 15.10 during the day. Not too keen on the early one cause would like relax a little and check out Bangkok before rushing off after the previous long distance flight. Would we make ...

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! ...

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 ...
