Which island ?

Posted by robynb on 16/11/2009 at 08:32

Hope someone can help? Family holiday in Thailand towards end Jan, and the idea is to go from Chiang Mai down south for a beach holiday. Have 3 boys (10,13,15) in tow and so don't want the journey to be a huge mission, but also want to avoid the very touristy islands. However, want more than just a beautiful beach (we're from New Zealand so not at all beach-deprived)- Thai culture, some activities etc - and keep going around in circles as I read all the guides and reports! Have thought of ...

Best Bodysurfing Near Bangkok

Posted by themuths on 19/11/2009 at 12:42

I'm looking for the best (or a reasonably good) beach to bodysurf that's near Bangkok. I'm finishing up my cycling trip and will have a few days in early December, so I don't want to have to travel far to get to the beach. Already spent time at Ko Samet, so currently Ko Chang is the top choice. Is there a particular beach that's the best for body-surfing waves? Or is there a better beach somewhere else entirely? Thanks for the assistance... ...

Khao Sok solo on a budget

Posted by damo on 18/11/2009 at 22:04

Khao Sok looks amazing and I would definitely love to visit while I'm in the area. Only problem it seems to be aimed more towards families and tourists with prices to match. It would be way out of my budget to go with say Limestone Lake tours. Is there any way to do this on the cheap? I don't mind roughing it, walking a lot or anything like that. ...

Getting to Chiang Mai airport from Pai

Posted by rose51 on 18/11/2009 at 15:10

Hi we have to get to Chiang Mai airport from Pai in two weeks time. The flight leaves from Chiang Mai at 12.30 to meet a connecting flight at Bangkok to Krabi (we booked before the direct Chiang Mai to Phuket fights became available much to our annoyance). I'm told a mini bus takes about 3.5 hours to get to Chiang Mai and may drop off other passengers at different locations making the journey longer. We do not have the budget to fly from Pai to Chiang Mai and I think all Nok air fli ...

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 ...
