what do you think of my thai/lao plan?

Posted by christay2009 on 5/11/2009 at 16:39

Essentially, i have come up with this just by looking at the map and reading about a couple of places in North Eastern Thailand. I would arrive in Bangkok by plane before heading up North East thailand over 2 weeks or so [similar to the TF itinerary] before crossing over into Vientiane, Laos. Id then work my way through southern Laos for 3 weeks or so before cutting back into Thailand at Pakse. Take the train from Udon Ratchathani back to Bangkok and fly home. What does anyone think? i've ...

Ko Tao to Chieow Laan Lake and Khao Sok?

Posted by Nerel3000 on 9/11/2009 at 03:39

Does anyone know the best way to get between Chieow Laan Lake or Khao Sok and Ko Tao of Ko Ph Ngan? We have just two weeks in Thailand for our first trip and planned to do a couple of days in Bangkok, then head to one of the above islands followed by a trip to Khao Sok and Chieow Laan lake, and then back to the other island for a couple of days and back to Bangkok. Has anyone done a similar trip and know how easy this travel would be / if it would be worth doing? We don't want to trave ...

We are arriving in BKK on 28 December and plan to head south to Kho Phan Gan for the full moon party the next night. Therefore my thought is to pre-book the train tickets for the overnight train as there may not be availability. Any ideas as to how to do this. ...

Ko Tao

Posted by itchyfeet on 3/11/2009 at 12:59

Sorry to write yet another question concerning Ko Tao but we do appreciate everyone's knowledgeable insights... My boyfriend and I are set to return to Thailand in January. When we were there last, we spent an idyllic 10 days at Haad Khom and could have spent another 50 if our bank accounts and visas would have allowed... We will return to Haad Khom again in January, but this time we only have about 2 weeks to play with in the area. We are hesitant just to retrace our steps though and we had ...

Kho Tao - Kho Phan Gan boats for Full Moon Party

Posted by Travel1221 on 6/11/2009 at 20:44

Hi there. Was on Koh Tao a couple of years ago and did the boat transfer to Phan Gan for the Full Moon Party. Felt a bit unsafe. How are things now. Would you trust it? A bit too late now to book accommodation on Phan Gan so would have to stay on a neighbouring island and boat it across for the party.......... ...

New destinations south of Chiang Mai

Posted by somtam2000 on 4/11/2009 at 10:31

We’ve been busy deepening our coverage along the famous Mae Hong Son loop in northern Thailand and have just added seven new spots working south from Chiang Mai. First stop is Hang Dong, followed in quick succession by Sanpatong , Chom Thong , Hot , Mae Chaem , the very little visited Mae Na Chon and last but not least, Thailand’s tallest peak, Doi Inthanon . So if you’re doing some slow travel along this route, you might want to give some of these spots a looksee. ...

Phuket Accomodation??

Posted by ctam2009 on 4/11/2009 at 20:32

Hello, I'll be in Phuket for a few days next week and was hoping someone might be able to suggest a place to stay. We're hoping for something on the beach thats still affordable (around $10-$15 a night), if such a thing still exists on Phuket.. We've been able to find just that in Ko Chang, and love it here, but hope to find something similiar down in Phuket. If someone could suggest a location or even the best beach to start searching at it would be appreciated! Thanks much.. ...

Hi Kind Souls, Need some advice as I've never been to this island. I'll be arriving in Phuket early on the 13th of Nov by air (8:30am ETA).

Carrying cash

Posted by mattocmd on 18/12/2008 at 03:49

Hello, I am in the US at the moment and I fly to Thailand in a few weeks. I have about $2000 US worth of Korean won. I did my research and decided it would be best to carry the won to Thailand and convert it directly into baht. This avoids getting screwed twice. This will leave me with a large sum of baht and I don't know what to do. I would really hate to carry that much around but I think I am stuck. I will be in Thailand for about two months and will spend all of this money but I w ...
