Bike Tours in Phuket or/and/vs Bangkok

Posted by sallyng on 25/12/2009 at 04:06

I am interested in doing a bike tour in either Bangkok or Thailand. I am a moderate road cyclist and am ok with a moderately-hard intensity, or even just an easy ride. My family (ages 57, 26, 27, and 3) who aren't super active, may also join. So if anyone has any suggestions for recommendations for either city or companies, I would really appreciate them. Also, please indicate whether they are appropriate for families or for just other avid cyclists. ...

Can anyone advise on the current state of the roads in the north west of Koh Phangan up to Had Salad. I've not been beyond Had Yao before and am looking to stay at Had Salad on my next visit. However, I'd like a base which would enable me to be able to get around the island by scooter without risking death everytime I venture out of town. Any advice would be appreciated. ...

Honeymoon Gulf of Thailand May or June/

Posted by skittles_2203 on 30/12/2009 at 11:04

Hi, We are getting married May 15th 2010 and are looking to visit Thailand on our honeymoon (2-3 weeks). I saw the weather on the Gulf of Thailand is much drier than on the west coast at this time. Can we expect days of sun, enough to sunbathe, visit the national parks, waterfalls etc? Also is the water safe for swimming at this time of year? Would we get better weather in June than May, I see May as quite a bit more rainy? Thanks! ...

Koh Yao Noi Excursions

Posted by rose51 on 1/11/2009 at 13:37

We will be travelling to Koh Yao Noi for just under a week in December (coming from Krabi not Phuket). We'll be happy exploring the island by bike and on foot, and want peace and quiet away from the tourist trail. However we do want to make some trips to Phang Nga Bay. I have looked and found excursions organised by Koh Yao Travel but these seem to be £60 per person which is too high for us. Is this the typical cost? Has anyone stayed on the island and organised trips through local gues ...

Asked to leave Bee Bees, Koh Lanta

Posted by billbevan01 on 21/12/2009 at 15:46

Hi, backpackers heading for Koh Lanta over the peak season might like to know this. We were asked to leave Bee Bees today because we were not spending enough in the restaurant. Apparently this would not be a problem the rest of the year but at peak season it is. We were asked with all courtesy and An tried not to actually ask us directly but suggested someone on a budget may like to look somewhere else over the next few days because he needs to live. We didn't have to leave the next day b ...
