Hi All, Thank you in advance for any assistance anyone can provide. 1st off, this is fairly immediate request which is why I am making it versus reading the other posts on the topic.

Hello! Me and my gf have 5 weeks in Asia. Sorry for the long post hehe but we are very close to our first international holiday and still have a lot of doubts!!! We like sun, beaches, nature and culture equally, and we are not looking for nightlife that is why we will spend only 1 day in Bangkok. I wanted to spend only a day each in Koh Phang Nan and Koh Tao but because she found out about the FMP I had to change it, my gf really wants to go I personally don't mind(are HMP any better?)..

Chiang Dao Nest

Posted by ano_1 on 16/9/2009 at 07:25

Hi, After reading the many great reviews of Chiang Dao Nest 1, I am seriously considering a stay there. However I have a few reservations which I hope readers may be able to assit with. Is the location so isolated you are obliged to use only the Nest's restaurants? Bungalow size: would a bungalow support 3 teenagers? Re aforesaid teenagers does the area hold enough activities to captivate for a 3 or more day stay? I know and look forward to the bungalows rustic nature, however how rustic, a ...

We will be in Laos and maybe Vietnam or Cambodia for four weeks next February. We want to end the trip on a realaxing beach...Choices we are considering are Koh Pu/Jum, Ko Chang, or the Surin Isands Nat. Park. Also thought about Phu Quoc in Vietnam.

Chiang Mai-Sukhothai-Kanchanaburi-Bangkok

Posted by ano_1 on 14/9/2009 at 07:46

Hi, I would welcome some opinions of travelling from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai to Kanchanburi to Bangkok. Will have young (and hopefully willing) teenagers in tow, time constraints will only allow 2 nights in Sukhothai (New Sukhothai) and Kanchanaburi. Does the difficulty of the do-ability outweigh the benefits of visiting said Sukhothai and Kanchanaburi. Many thanks for any advice/ opinions offered ...

Questions and itinerary

(sorry for the vague title and long message, but it seemed perhaps preferable to starting multiple threads... feel free to tell me if I was mistaken) I'm dragging two friends on a quick (3 week) tour through Vietnam/Cambodia/Thailand. Yes, it's very much the well-beaten tourist path. We probably best fit the "flashpacker" category (a term I never came across until Travelfish)... overland travel, budget-but-not-too-budget guesthouses, etc... First, some questions: 1. Chiang Mai trekkin ...
