Best Island to visit?

Posted by Nerel3000 on 19/10/2009 at 01:11

I am due to visit Thailand arriving into Bangkok on New Year's eve in the morning with 2 other people (both guys and 1 girl). We are very stuck on out itinery! We have 16 days and I think we've decided we probably won't make it to the North. We were looking at an organised trip to River Kwai and death railway for a week or so, and then nip down to 1 or 2 islands. Which islands are best to visit and fairly easy to get to? I think we'd like someone a bit off the beaten track but still with ...

to stop in Udon or Nong Kai?

Posted by furneburner on 15/10/2009 at 14:59

Hi all, I am flying from Bangkok from Udon Thani (because of time restrictions and not wanting to take the long trip) and going over the border into Laos. So my question is whether or not Udon Thani is worth a day or two, or should i just go straight to Nong Kai. Moreover, is Nong Kai worth some time or is it pretty similar to Vientiene? My plans? Just wanna chill out by the river, have a few beers and wander around town somewhere different. I've never been to isaan before. Than ...

Settling for one month Ko Tao or Ko Pha Ngan?

Posted by rednesss on 15/10/2009 at 20:43

Hello, am looking to spend a relatively cheap month on either Ko Tao or Ko Pha Ngan as a mid-way pointthrough S.E Asia. Which island would be more budget friendly? Not looking to spend more than 300b per night on accom but also dont want to be too isolated. On the beach is not a priority but near a beach is. Also need some nightlife - all in all a good place to live for a month. Or would it be better to settle in another part of Thailand? I'm after travelling through Vietnam and the north of ...

Best Thai Cookery schools/courses in Chiang Mai?

Posted by Jozudave on 17/10/2009 at 15:06

Hi there, My partner and I would like to do a couple of days of Thai cookery in Chiang Mai next week and were wondering which places you would recommend? We don't have a guide book right now other than the internet, but have heard of the well known Chiang Mai Thai Cookery School. I'm sure that would be fine, but if anyone's had any good experiences elsewhere then we'd be happy to give someone else our custom. Thanks! Here's to making some delicious green curry from scratch next week! ...

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?

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 ...

Hi, Just found this lovely little site while looking up train info for Thailand and thought I should sign up and ask the question I'm stuck on! :) I'm trying to book a train from Thailand to NongKai to go to Laos.
