Flights?

Posted by krist on 11/10/2009 at 00:01

Hi, Basically I'd like to fly into Thailand, travel through Cambodia and onto Vietnam, flying back home from Saigon. I have a month. Any info/advice on where to book flights of this nature would be appreciated. Would it be best to book a one way flight to Thailand then once in Vietnam book a flight home? Or would it be a better bet to book everything in advance? I travelled to Vietnam last year with Singapore Airlines and although it was probably one of the finest airlines I've fl ...

Bang Saphan to Surat or straight to Krabi?

Posted by alexlazarus on 7/10/2009 at 03:52

Hi Guys, I'm looking for some advice for how we should organise a bit of our itinerary. We're planning on spending a couple of nights in Bang Saphan before heading down to Krabi to spend some time on some of the islands in mid-December. I've been looking into it and originally thought that it would be a good idea to break the journey by staying the night in Surat Thani , but now i'm not sure whether it would be better to just head straight down to Krabi. Can we go directly from Bang Sap ...

Koh Kho Khao/Koh Phra Thang - budget accommodation?

Posted by RuthJ on 10/10/2009 at 20:55

Hello As some of you may know, I've posted about itinerary advice before and as a result have decided to simplify our trip somewhat. Thanks to everyone who posted. We're just going to Phuket to start with to visit friends and then take it from there. But the plan is to go to Khao Lak for some Similans diving and chilling out (not really a fan of Phuket). But I think we would like to get some proper thailand escapism of a hut on a beach and not much else around kind. Koh Chang (an ...

Thailand November/December

Posted by justy12 on 5/10/2009 at 18:57

I am going to Thailand mid November for just over 3/4 weeks. Thinking of going to Ko Samui, Ko Phangan, and Ko Phi Phi. Does anybody know what the weather will be like? I have heard conflicting reports. Would it be better to go to the islands off the east coast first and then the west or vice versa? I believe the weather can be very different on both. Hoping to take in the full moon party on December 2nd. Thanks ...

Lamphun province in November

Posted by mh on 9/10/2009 at 11:46

Hello, Could anyone give their opinions on Lamphun province outside of Lamphun city? Some things I've read say it's a little bit uninteresting, others say it's quiet and relaxing... what do you all think? If anyone has liked spending time in the Li district especially, I would really like to hear about it. This is the only article I've found about it so far: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2009/09/22/travel/travel_30112779.php# I'll be in Thailand (first time!) from late October to late ...

Travel from Koh Chang to Koh Samet

Posted by lizinwien on 6/10/2009 at 23:26

Hello, I am trying to plan a trip for March. Ideally we would stay a few nights in Bangkok, travel to Koh Chang, then to Koh Samet and then back to Bangkok. Is it possible to travel easily from Koh Chang to Koh Samet? I see they are both fairly accessible from Bangkok, but is there a boat from one to the other? Also, if anyone can recommend a cheap hotel on Koh Samet (around 1000 bah) that would also be wonderful. ps. this site is amazing! it has been really extremely helpful and i am very th ...

Hello We're going to be in Thailand for about 12 days (mid to end of Feb) at the beginning of our trip of SE Asia. For about 6 days would you recommend going to Phi Phi and staying there or rather going to Krabi and doing day trips from there (we want to do relaxing on the beach and also some activities)?? Also is Khao Yai Park worth a visit and if so how long do you reckon. Wow...I'm SO excited - don't know how I'm going to last till Feb! Thanks guys ...
