Travel during King's birthday-what to expect?

Posted by boleslav on 25/9/2009 at 02:41

Our travel plans coincide with the Kings birthday. We'll be returning from Trang to Bangkok either on the 5th or 6th of December and I would like to check with you what should we expect, what does it mean for the travelers? What should I be aware of in order to avoid any delays, etc. Does this mean that the whole country is celebrating and the services shut down? I have read somewhere that it will be a long weekend, as the 5th falls onto Saturday. Can you please confirm this and which da ...

Hello travel peeps, I'm due to arrive in Suvanabhumi Airport at around 18.00 in early November and want to head straight to trat and then ko chang. Whats the best way to get there without too much hastle and avoiding central bangkok?

Nimmanoradee Boutique Resort, Ko Samet, stayed or dropped by?

Posted by Tennouji on 6/7/2009 at 21:43

Hi Yes an annoying "Has anyone stayed at..." question, I'm afraid! Has anyone either stayed at, or dropped in for lunch, or had a look as your tour boat passed - there is supposed to be good snorkeling nearby? I have trawled the net and have only found three reviews in English for this place which seems odd as it is supposed to have been open since 2005. It is on the last beach Ao Karang -past the flashy Paradee Resort & Spa. I walked to Karang from Sametville in 2004 and at that tim ...

True Thai story

Posted by MADMAC on 23/9/2009 at 12:58

I came to Thailand to live in June of 2007. My wife, myself and our little girl first stayed in my wife's village. Two days after I arrived, along came a fortune teller. Now, I think it's all hocus pocus, but it was only 20 baht - so why not? The lady tells me to go outside and find a leaf that talks to me. I tell her maybe plants talk to her, but they don't talk to me. My wife tells me to just go do it. So I walk outside and grab the first leaf I see. She takes it, mixes it with some powde ...

More remote, less touristy and more 'Thai' culture in the south western islands

Posted by jojow25 on 23/9/2009 at 14:46

Hi guys, anyone out there been to any of the islands: Koh Ra Ko Phayam ? We want to explore an island or two and since we are going to be seeing a friend in Khao Lak (who is working there) we thought it would makes sense to do these islands rather than the more widely covered Koh Samui, Koh Phag nan etc on the East. Would love to hear anyone who has been to stay in any of these places. Could you recommend somewhere cheap and cheerful to stay (between 600 - 1000B) and also good walk ...
