Thailand in-country travel advice for two weeks with toddler in Bangkok,Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta

Posted by daphnehk on 16/2/2010 at 09:17

We are traveling to Thailand for two weeks in early April, with a 20-month-old. Ideally I'd like to land in Bangkok, spend a few days there; then get a train compartment South and hit two beach locations -- one easy to get to in the vicinity of Koh Phi Phi, the second probably Koh Lanta; then fly out from Phuket. Do people have advice on (a) how to handle the travel amongst those places, and (b) where to stay with a toddler? For the travel, we are willing to get our own flotation device a ...

Songkran Holiday

Posted by blackpepper14 on 13/2/2010 at 15:09

I have just completed my travel arrangements and unknowingly they coinside EXACTLY with Songkran. I'm excited about this but have a few practical questions. I assume BKK is as good a place as any for enjoying the festival? How crazy does it get in terms of travelling around within Bangkok and/or trying to get to Chang Mai? Would it be better to hang in BKK until after before heading North? I have quite a bit of time... Also wondering about hotel/guesthouse bookings for this time? I fly in on the ...

Thailand itinerary questions :)

Posted by Karlap on 10/2/2010 at 13:10

Hello! I will be traveling in Thailand next month and have spoken with a friend about where to go. The current itinerary is Bangkok- Ayutthaya - Kanchanaburi - Chiang Mai . My questions are: Would it be better to travel to Kanchanaburi before Ayutthaya since I will be heading north afterwards? Is it possible to get an overnight train/bus to Chiang Mai from Ayutthaya or Kanchanaburi or will I need to head back to Bangkok to get the train/bus? Lastly- how much does the train/bus usually ...

Spending 5 Nights In Villages/cities Between Bangkok & Chiang Mai

Posted by borgy on 3/2/2010 at 14:13

I need some advice about the villages/cities which can be found between Bangkok and Chiang Mai that you would suggest to spend 5 nights in. The idea is to head to the North on our way to Chiang Mai (by means of bus or train but surely overland), and on our way we intend to spend in total 5 nights in villages between Bangkok & Chiang Mai. So far we're sure we'll be visiting 2 nights in Phitsanulok, of which a day tour to Sukothai. Someone also told us about Phrae and Lamphang but we need s ...

Travelling after appendicitis

Posted by Jleef on 11/2/2010 at 20:00

I'm writing this in the vain hope that somebody else has been as unlucky as me and had their appendix taken out whilst travelling! I've written a blog entry about it here which hopefully people will take a look at: http://jleef.co.uk/2010/02/fleshwound/ I'm remaining optimistic about it as there's no point getting myself down. My plans for the text two weeks are to do as little as possible and I'll probably stay on Ko Samui, but if anybody has had a similar experience or can share any v ...

Pickup and food at Relax Beach resort, Phi Phi?

Posted by Hersir on 6/6/2008 at 06:38

Me and the wife are going to stay at the Relax Beach resort August 08 to enjoy some off season calm. We are both avid scuba divers and planned to do some diving at the local reefs since Phi Phi is somehwat protected. My question is do the dive companies offer to pick you up at Relax Beach resort or do you have to hike over to Ton Sai? I'll of course ask when I set foot there but inquiring minds wants to now. Another question while I'm at it. I read that the food is pricey at the "resort". Wha ...

i noticed that on this site, they list koh phi phi as "could have been better." let me say: the island in itself is FANTASTIC, should you avoid a few traps. definitely don't go to barracuda dive shop. this may not be totally applicable to you, but: they hit on women to the point that you feel uncomfortable in their dive companionship. we felt so intimidated we had no choice but to be nice to them and they brought my friend up at at ten bar, which is TOTALLY inappropriate for anyone who is a dive ...
