Hi, Can I please get some opinions on the feasability of picking up a car at Suvarnabmi Airport and driving to Kanchanaburi . I have previously driven in Thailand but not in any area that would be akin to Bangkok! I have to move 5 people from Suvarnabumi to Kanchanaburi and then when in Kanchanaburi intend renting a car to get about.

Getting Around Ko Tao

I am heading to to Ko Pha Ngan at the end of January for the Full Moon Party and then to Ko Tao to relax/recover. I was wondering about getting around Ko Tao. I want to stay in a nice, relaxing area and Chalok Ban Kao seems perfect, but I still want to enjoy some good nightlife. All things considered (crowd from FMP, cost, safety, etc.) will it be easy to get to Mae Haad from Chalok Ban Kao at night? Also, any personal recommendations on accommodations would be helpful and welcome ...
