3 weeks on Thai Islands - Ko Lanta first - then where?

Posted by Kazzer00 on 22/9/2009 at 21:31

Myself and my boyfriend will be spending just over 3 weeks in Thailand in October. We are going straight from Bangkok to Ko Lanta . We plan to spend 2-3 nights in Ko Lanta. Can anybody advise if there is anywhere else we should go to nearby? I know that a lot of the ferries don’t operate until November. We’re looking for somewhere not overrun but not dead quiet either. With some good snorkelling and with some restaurants/bars. We plan to spend the second half of our holiday over on t ...

Andaman gulf beginning of December

Posted by Seba on 28/9/2009 at 20:58

Hi, I'm planning on going to the Andaman Gulf (Khao Sak, Similan Islands, Koh Phi Phi, Krabi, Railey) at the beginning of December. My questions: will these be overcrowded that time of the year, or is it only really bad from mid-Dember on? Is it much different from let's say end of October? And is it affordable (I'm a backpacker)? How many days will I need to do the above (I scheduled around 10 days) ...

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? (I do like Bangkok but prefer to avoid cities after 16 hour flights) I've found a few options but I'm unsure if they are still in operation and if they are the easiest way.

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 ...
