Bang Saphan to Surat or straight to Krabi?

Posted by alexlazarus on 7/10/2009 at 03:52

Hi Guys, I'm looking for some advice for how we should organise a bit of our itinerary. We're planning on spending a couple of nights in Bang Saphan before heading down to Krabi to spend some time on some of the islands in mid-December. I've been looking into it and originally thought that it would be a good idea to break the journey by staying the night in Surat Thani , but now i'm not sure whether it would be better to just head straight down to Krabi. Can we go directly from Bang Sap ...

Koh Kho Khao/Koh Phra Thang - budget accommodation?

Posted by RuthJ on 10/10/2009 at 20:55

Hello As some of you may know, I've posted about itinerary advice before and as a result have decided to simplify our trip somewhat. Thanks to everyone who posted. We're just going to Phuket to start with to visit friends and then take it from there. But the plan is to go to Khao Lak for some Similans diving and chilling out (not really a fan of Phuket). But I think we would like to get some proper thailand escapism of a hut on a beach and not much else around kind. Koh Chang (an ...

Posted by jodie6104 on 8/10/2009 at 18:36

My husband and I are planning to go to the FMP this NYE. We have been advised three beaches to stay on: Haad Yao(west), Haad Salad and Thong Nai Pan Noi. Which is best? we want somewhere pretty chilled, with good food and nice places to stay (it is our honeymoon so any suggestions welcome for up to 3000 Baht a night) but with not too tricky access to the FMP Many thanks ...

Thailand November/December

Posted by justy12 on 5/10/2009 at 18:57

I am going to Thailand mid November for just over 3/4 weeks. Thinking of going to Ko Samui, Ko Phangan, and Ko Phi Phi. Does anybody know what the weather will be like? I have heard conflicting reports. Would it be better to go to the islands off the east coast first and then the west or vice versa? I believe the weather can be very different on both. Hoping to take in the full moon party on December 2nd. Thanks ...

Lamphun province in November

Posted by mh on 9/10/2009 at 11:46

Hello, Could anyone give their opinions on Lamphun province outside of Lamphun city? Some things I've read say it's a little bit uninteresting, others say it's quiet and relaxing... what do you all think? If anyone has liked spending time in the Li district especially, I would really like to hear about it. This is the only article I've found about it so far: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2009/09/22/travel/travel_30112779.php# I'll be in Thailand (first time!) from late October to late ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
