Advise for a chilled Island Holiday

Posted by davipinks on 20/10/2009 at 18:12

My girl friend and I are flying into Krabi mid December and leaving in mid January. We would like to get our diving licenses (Krabi seems like the logical place to do so) and then explore many of the less traveled Islands. This forum seems to have a great number of experienced travelers and I would love for some of you to pass along any thoughts on how to get the most out of a chilled holiday. What kind of route might one take? Cheers ...

Thailand Visa Question - hope someone can help!

Posted by geo85 on 12/11/2009 at 23:41

Hi guys, I just need some clarity on the Thai visa situation. Me and the girlfriend are headin Hong Kong to Bangkok 5 Feb, and planning to head north (Chang Mai) onto Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, then back to Thailand to do the islands on route south. Now I know as it stands that there's no need for a visa if we're only going to be in the country for 30 days; we anticipate we'll be in Thailand (at the most) for 2 or 3 weeks before we head to Laos. My question is, what's the sitation for gettin ...

Want a suit in Bangkok, but only two days so need it to be posted to me. Recommended shops?

Posted by Jozudave on 6/11/2009 at 11:45

I'm going to be in Bangkok this weekend (Sat and Sun only) and would like to get a couple of suits and some shirts made for me. I had a look at the other threads about suits in the forum but I would like a recommendation on a shop or two that are good of course, but who will also mail your suits to your home country (the UK in my case). I had this done in Vietnam a while back so I presume it can be done in Thailand too. Naturally I'm looking for a place with really good quality tailored suit ...

Learning to dive in Thailand - where?

Posted by damo on 10/11/2009 at 00:28

Hi, I've decided to learn how to dive while I'm visiting Thailand this December. I had previously not planned to visit any islands or anywhere south of Bangkok, so now I have a fairly big change to my itinerary. I've read that Koh Tao would be a bad place to aim for at this time of year due to the weather, so I'm thinking of either Koh Chang or somewhere on the Andaman coast. Does anyone have any advice? I suppose I'll want to hang around for a few extra days on the beach. I'm not into h ...

Just a quick note that we've added another small destination into the site, Sri Racha in Chonburi province. It's best known as being home to an explosive spicy sauce and also for the offshore island of Ko Si Chang. If you're looking for a small off the beaten trail spot just an hour our of Bangkok, you may want to add it to your shortlist. Enjoy! ...

Funny motorcycle experience in BKK

Posted by MADMAC on 9/11/2009 at 11:16

I hoped a motorcycle taxi with one of the taxis drivers I play Thai chess with when in Bangkok. The driver didn't know where I wanted to go so as a joke I offered to drive. He asked if I had a license. Sure. I showed it to him and he said "you drive". So I drove the motorcycle and he was the passenger on the back. Can't tell you how many people were staring saying to themselves "what's wrong with this picture?" ...
