Travel from Koh Chang to Koh Samet

Posted by lizinwien on 6/10/2009 at 23:26

Hello, I am trying to plan a trip for March. Ideally we would stay a few nights in Bangkok, travel to Koh Chang, then to Koh Samet and then back to Bangkok. Is it possible to travel easily from Koh Chang to Koh Samet? I see they are both fairly accessible from Bangkok, but is there a boat from one to the other? Also, if anyone can recommend a cheap hotel on Koh Samet (around 1000 bah) that would also be wonderful. ps. this site is amazing! it has been really extremely helpful and i am very th ...

Krabi or Phi Phi and Khao yai....

Posted by NewbieC on 8/10/2009 at 13:54

Hello We're going to be in Thailand for about 12 days (mid to end of Feb) at the beginning of our trip of SE Asia. For about 6 days would you recommend going to Phi Phi and staying there or rather going to Krabi and doing day trips from there (we want to do relaxing on the beach and also some activities)?? Also is Khao Yai Park worth a visit and if so how long do you reckon. Wow...I'm SO excited - don't know how I'm going to last till Feb! Thanks guys ...

Northern Thailand and Laos: itenerary advice

Posted by bellatrx on 6/10/2009 at 12:52

My boyfriend and I will be traveling through northern Thailand and Laos (with a side trip to Angkor Wat) for a month this Oct/Nov. We are in our late 20s and are excited about seeing cities, eating delicious food, wandering and hiking around, and getting to practice Thai (I can read s-l-o-w-l-y, and have been learning some vocab in preparation for the trip). Some combination of the awesome things that happen to be on the tourist trail ( Chiang Mai , Angkor Wat) and more off-trail things (Nan? ...

Thai Festivals

Posted by exacto on 6/10/2009 at 07:36

Here's a list of Thai holidays and festivals I put together a long time ago. Lots of the festivals and holidays follow the lunar calendar, so they won’t necessarily fall on the exact same day every year. During major holiday periods, like International New Year’s or the Songran Festival, all forms of transportation are booked solid, so plan ahead. You can also check the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) website to see if anything is on during your visit. It's at: http://www.tat. ...

Hi All, Does anyone know if Lanta Merry Hut are still around? I've emailed numerous times and no reply - is it better to call? And are they trust worthy with reservation in advance? Also, does anyone have any experience of Red Snapper's new bungalows? They are set back fromthe beach in what looks like a field, but is described as a garden setting. they look nice, but i have no idea about the surroudings... Cheers in advance, A ...

Pattaya, yes or no?

Posted by greenman42 on 29/9/2009 at 18:27

Firstly, let me thank the Somtam's for this site. I only discovered it a week or two ago and already have learned so much useful information. I am planning my second trip to Thailand in Dec. My first was with two friends through Phuket, Phi Phi, Samui and Koh Panghan. I had planned to go on to Bangkok and Chang Mai, but ended up returning to Samui for another week. They went on. The thought of cities after islands and beaches did not appeal to me. This trip I'll be probably be travelling alon ...

I arrive in Bangkok at midnight on January 22nd I am want to check out the FMP on the 30th on Ko Phangan. According to the info I have gathered it is best to arrive 4-5 days before the party. To find accommodations, that being the case, should I just book a train when I arrive for the following night? Or should I take a day train down there. I want to the cheapest way possible. Also – traveling on a budget, looking for a bungalow, nothing fancy just a place to lock my bag, and a bed to sle ...
