Our primary interest is getting into good forest, and we're down to spend some cash to hire a guide that has an eye for the birds, bugs, plants and occasional mammal. Thanks! ...

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 ...

my boyfriend and I are planing our first trip to Thailand, the trip will be 10 days long in mid Jan. I'm very excited about the trip and have read quite a bit about all the different islands, but I end up feeling very overwhelmed by all the information and unable to decide which one is better suited for what we're looking for. Basically we want to be on an island, since the trip won't be very long, we prefer to stay on one island, two the most. We're living in a very busy city right now, so we ...

We tried talking to someone at the pier but only got offers for a tour. Lonely Planet mentions that you can do self-guided hikes so I'm just wondering if anyone can help shed some light on this for us. ...
