Hello, I am travelling with my girlfriend to Thailand in March 2010 and would like some destination advice. I have booked my internal flights and I have nine days to travel from Krabi (airport)to Phuket (airport). After doing some research I have pencilled in 3 nights in Ao Nang or Railay, 2 nights in Koh Phi Phi and 4 nights in Phuket. Would we be better staying in Ao Nang or Railay? Also, have we got enough time in each destination to experience its highlights? Any advice ...

1 week in Thailand. Need help with indecision

Posted by raveler on 14/10/2009 at 23:06

Hi, I'll be traveling with my parents for 1 week over Christmas. It will be the first time any of us have visited Thailand and I'm finding myself faced with the old "so many things to do so little time" dilemma. It's pretty much come down to wether we should split our time between Chiangrai and Ko Yao Yai/Noi or just stay up north and save the islands for another trip? Trekking is out of my mom's comfort zone but I was thinking of trying at least a day hike out of maybe Mae Salong wi ...

Treks near Chiang Dao/Phrao/Doi Inthanon?

Posted by Bilby09 on 15/10/2009 at 07:02

Hi, staying in Chiang Mai in January and plan to do a 2 day trek during this time (I know.. would love to go trekking somewhere more off the beaten track such as Soppong or Mae Sariang but just don't have the time). Just wondering if anyone can recommend any particular trekking companies (especially guest houses) that offer 2 days of full on hiking (if possible in slightly less visited areas)? Not interested in elephants or rafting as we will probably ride elephants and go kayaking d ...
