Koh Chang & Koh Lanta - Are They Very Similar?

Posted by borgy on 27/1/2010 at 14:48

Just want to know whether in a holiday of 3 weeks it is worth it visiting both Koh Chang & Koh Lanta?Are the characteristics of both islands nearly the same? If so, I might have to choose one of them...Or the 2 islands have lots of differences between each other making it worthwile to visit both. But if you think it's worth it to visit both islands please let me know..thanks ...

Getting into Thailand at Hat-Lek corssing from Cambodia

Posted by jainidhi on 3/2/2010 at 19:48

I am an Indian living in France. At the end of the month, I am flying into Bangkok and staying there for a day before leaving for Cambodia. My plan is to stay in Cambodia for a week before heading back to Thailand at Hat Lek- Ko Kong crossing. I want to know if I can apply for a visa on arrival for entering Thailand at this particular crossing. Thai embassy at Paris could not confirm this for me. They just gave me a single entry visa for landing in Bangkok with my flight ticket as proof. Emb ...

I'm thinking about going (from UK) in Oct 2010 for a 25th wedding celebration for two weeks. I don't want something too quiet or noisy (Phuket seems best for its beaches). Am open minded about a two centre holiday. Can anyone give some suggestions - or point me to existing threads/topics (just joined today after finding this site by chance). Thanks in advance. ...

Broke down in rural Thailand

Posted by MADMAC on 3/2/2010 at 12:22

My new (second hand) chopper has been having teething troubles. I now think it's just about ready to go, but three days ago I had a funny little adventure. I rode out to my wife's village to visit the in-laws and check on my building site. Wife and kids were coming the next day. Got to Saimun and decided to stop and grab a coke before driving the last ten klicks to the house. Did a little food shopping and threw the stuff in my saddle bags. Got on the bike and it won't turn over. Battery is ...

Exchanging Euro Money To Thai Baht,

Posted by borgy on 1/2/2010 at 19:26

Is it a possible to exhange EURO cash money in Thailand to Thai Baht? Is it a common practice? I know one can easily do this if you bring US dollars but I'd prefer to take some Euro Cash money instead considering I come from a Euro-zone country. And if this is possible, from where you can exchange the Euro money to Thai Baht?from certain banks only or you can say every bank can do this? Obviously, my primary source for Thai Baht will not be foriegn money as cash but rather withdrawals by means o ...

Another visa question

Posted by appro on 7/1/2010 at 03:39

Apologies in advance for asking questions probably asked 100 times before. I've read some conflicting info, so I wanted clarification. I'm flying into Thailand so I know I'll get a 30 day visa, but from there I'll be crossing by land into Laos and then Cambodia. I then plan to fly from Cambodia into Thailand to get another 30 day visa, then eventually travel overland to Singapore where I fly to Oz. So: 1) I read recently that I need proof of onward travel to get a 30 day visa. My singapore ...

koh yao noi/koh yao yai, also prebook?

Posted by sheisaeval on 29/1/2010 at 06:43

First, I'm not sure if I should go to koh yao noi or koh yao yai. I think yao noi is a little more populated and more tourists, but yao is more peaceful and secluded and better beaches? Also, I don't know if I should prebook my accomodations or not. If I do, then they can set up a pickup at the pier and I'm sure to have one, but some of the cheaper bungalows and places (such as tabaek viewpiont) doesn't even have an email to contact, so I am not sure if I should just walk in I'll be there ...

I was wondering if it is possible to take ferries from Ranong all the way to Tarutao with out going to the mainland. I'm going to be there for 7 weeks starting in March. Any suggestions on itinerary would be great. I basically want to island hop and mix in some laid back and some fun. Snorkeling is high on the list and a padi course.

Chiang Mai Tiger Kingdom - proper information

Posted by shaydan_01 on 30/1/2010 at 08:07

Hi guys, I have done a search on this topic and have so far only found a few debates regarding peoples opinions on wild animals kept in captivity which is interesting to read, is not really what I'm after. I am wondering if anybody can point me in the direction of some actual and presumably factual information regarding the Chiang Mai Tiger Kingdom and the welfare of the tigers kept there. I am interested in finding out about their breeding and releasing programs (if any) and how they o ...
