Halloween was originally a Celtic “ festival for the dead . celebrated on the last day of the Celtic year , October 31 . one story was that , on that day , the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year . it was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife . naturally , the still-living did not want to be possessed . so , on the night ...

Train/Bus from and to Ayutthaya, Lopburi and K'buri

Posted by jamiemcl on 15/11/2009 at 16:40

Hi all, Thanks for the hugely useful information for my questions regarding itinerary a wee while back. I am off at the end of this week, and had originally had the idea I would move from Chiang Mai (a few nights up in Pai) down through Sukhothai , Lopburi , Ayutthaya , Kanchanaburi and down to Bangkok (over 17 nights) leaving each place as I felt like it (within the limit of 18 days). However, it looks as though trains for the time I'm going (19/12 - 3/01) need to be booked in adva ...

Why should I travel to Thailand?

Posted by gapyearescape on 13/11/2009 at 09:18

When I first planned my RTW trip I originally planned only 3 nights in Bangkok and then straight on to Australia. What a mistake that would have been! The whole of Thailand is amazing (why do people miss the north?). Saying that the whole of south east asia is amazing. If anyone needs any inspiring check out this video. Hope this helps someone.

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! ...
