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 ...

House to Rent for month

Posted by billbevan01 on 21/9/2009 at 01:55

Hi, my partner and me are returning to Thailand with our 6 month old baby. We're looking to stay in a couple of places for at least one month in each location. We'd like to stay in a small semi-rural location in the north with access to walks and in a quiet beach with some snorkelling and walking. We've been thinking of Chiang Rai and Koh Lanta but wonder if there are other places worth considering? Is Pai worth looking into? We're looking to avoid the high malarial risk areas near the borde ...
