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 ...

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.

SPECIFIC august weather question

Posted by walkingtrees on 28/1/2010 at 03:55

Hi everybody, Last week I booked tickets from August 1st - August 29 for my first trip to Thailand. At the time I knew it was during the rain season but had been told it wouldn't be too bad and that October was really the month to avoid. I'm fine with some rain here and there but am now a little worried after looking at the weather map on this site....August looks really. My question is this: during a rainy day, does it typically pour all day with constant dark skies? Or does the rain c ...

Songkran holiday packages?

Posted by bedu on 27/1/2010 at 14:03

Basically I don't quite like Songkran for many reasons, and I would like to hear of any alternatives to the craziness. One option is to take a trip abroad to say, Hong Kong or Singapore, however, the cost for the Songkran period is between 13 - 19,000 THB. Anyone know of a good travel agent in Bangkok that can get me a good rate? The other option is a resort in Thailand itself, again does anyone know of a place where I can 'get away from it all'? What is the approx. cost? Thanks eve ...
