Getting 2 month tourist visa for China in Bangkok

Posted by williamtaylor on 16/1/2010 at 18:10

Is getting a 2 month tourist visa for China in Bangkok possible? I went to several travel agencies and was told that they could only arrange a 1 month tourist visa. Am I likely to have better luck by visiting the embassy? Is it possible to extend a 1 month visa after entering China? I plan to enter through Vietnam overland and fly out of Chengdu to KL. ...

Elephants in Southern Thailand?

Posted by cheeco on 15/1/2010 at 16:38

Hi everyone, I was just wondering if there is an Elephant center in southeast Thailand, specifically on Koh Tao/Phangan/Samui? I see the Eco Nature Tour on Phangan, but I don't want to see an elephant show of any kind- something more like the Lampang center or the center in Chiang Mai. This might be a stretch, but I thought I would ask as I can't seem to find info elsewhere. Thanks! Robyn ...

Following the Mekong from Nong Khai (Tilapia?)

Posted by exacto on 13/1/2009 at 23:52

This question is primarily for Tilapia but I'd love to hear from others too. I'm looking to spend some time later this year following the Mekong both up and down river from Nong Khai. I did this nearly a decade ago now and it was very charming, old-school Thailand backpacker with bamboo along the waterside. You'd mentioned in an earlier post about hiring a motor scooter from Nong Khai as an option for travel. What about other possibilities? How good/frequent/reliable is the local transpor ...

Hello, I need some help with planing the details of a 14 days trip from Bangkok to Ko Tao and Ko Pha Ngan.

(I have budget concerns and have no credit card to prebook anything.) Here are my questions: 1. Is is likely to be able to catch an over n ...
