Getting Around Ko Tao

Posted by alexrlynn on 5/1/2010 at 14:53

I am heading to to Ko Pha Ngan at the end of January for the Full Moon Party and then to Ko Tao to relax/recover. I was wondering about getting around Ko Tao. I want to stay in a nice, relaxing area and Chalok Ban Kao seems perfect, but I still want to enjoy some good nightlife. All things considered (crowd from FMP, cost, safety, etc.) will it be easy to get to Mae Haad from Chalok Ban Kao at night? Also, any personal recommendations on accommodations would be helpful and welcome ...

Will June weather stop train/bus service to Ayutthaya?

Posted by clairejustine on 6/1/2010 at 13:20

We are going to be in Bangkok for a few days in mid June, and wondered about the possibility of flooding around Ayutthaya during this season. Is there a high likelihood that Ayutthaya would be inaccessible? And is this an OK time to visit Ayutthaya in general? ...

Be careful when crossing the road

Posted by somtam2000 on 6/1/2010 at 14:18

Received some tragic news this afternoon that Torgeir Norling (better known as Tor), a Norwegain journo, based in Bangkok for at least the last decade, was killed yesterday when he was hit by a bus near the Erawan Shrine. Tor had reported from Afghanistan, Iraq, Timor, Burma and Aceh (among others) and had setup the excellent RainDogs Bar in Bangkok. We'd known him for some time. Tor leaves behind his wife Jum and young son. He was 37. The exact circumstances of the accident are unclear ...

Unbelievable Tourist

Posted by Canudigit on 31/12/2009 at 10:48

My friend, knowing I'm headed for the Kingdom, just phoned to warn me that her brother-in-law from Canada, who'd been to Thailand before, was supposed to stay 3 months, but is back after 3 weeks. He left because someone "tried to run him over with a car, twice" and that he found the atmosphere dangerous. I'm waiting for details, why it happened, why they didn't just go to another town. Will fill in details if the victim calls me back. ...

Accomodation Nakhon Sawan - Ban Donmai Resort

Posted by AbgAcid on 3/1/2010 at 08:21

We are a group of travelers riding motorcylcles and travel extensively. The distance from Chieng Mai to Bangkok is relatively too large to cover within a day, and thus needed a mid stop somewhere for overnight. For this the Ban Donmai resort is the the best bet. Relatively new, its location is a few km just off the hiway 1. Well contstructed bungalows, very quiet with some nice landscapes. Aircon bungalows. split level type were only 400 bh. It comes with TV, hot shower and believe it or not ...

Bike Tours in Phuket or/and/vs Bangkok

Posted by sallyng on 25/12/2009 at 04:06

I am interested in doing a bike tour in either Bangkok or Thailand. I am a moderate road cyclist and am ok with a moderately-hard intensity, or even just an easy ride. My family (ages 57, 26, 27, and 3) who aren't super active, may also join. So if anyone has any suggestions for recommendations for either city or companies, I would really appreciate them. Also, please indicate whether they are appropriate for families or for just other avid cyclists. ...
