Hi All, First, great forum. I used the search function and was able to find most of what I needed to know for my upcoming trip to SE Asia. But now I've hit a snag - I planned to buy an Air Asia ticket from BKK to Phnom Pen as my proof of onward travel when I land in Thailand. But the Air Asia website repeadedly rejected my card and the rep at AA tells me that they do not accept cards from a bank issued in the USA. Is this true? Anybody have a workaround for this?

Ayutthaya or Sukhothai or both?

Posted by buecax on 21/10/2009 at 18:46

At the end of my SEA trip I have one week left before I fly home from Bangkok. I arrive at BKK airport on the evening of Oct 23rd and fly out from BKK airport on Oct 30th. So if I spend the first and last night in Bangkok that only leaves me 5 days to somewhere else. I understand Ayutthaya is very close to Bangkok but Sukhothai is about 5-6 hours away. So is there one to be preferred over the other or is it worth seeing both? ...

Hi there, We will be attending the Full Moon party in December 2009. Thing is we are looking at booking accommodation (budget style) but having difficulty finding budget options. Can anyone advise on sea-front bungalow accommodation (not too close to the main FMP beach)which is relatively cheap and where we would not have to book a minimum of say 5 nights as our time on the island is limited. Our other option is to rather stay on Koh Tao and ferry it across for the party - but also a bit wei ...
