Posted by bronzedwarrior on 4/9/2009 at 05:01

On 31st October the missus and myself will be deserting the misery that is 'Brown's Britain' for nearly 7 months of fun in the sun... And we can't bloody wait! The trip will take in Thailand, Oz, The Philippines, Malaysia and finally Bali/Lombok before heading home in May next year. The reason for my post is this... We've travelled in the area a few times before but only ever towards the end of the 'season'( Feb-March etc ), just wondering what to expect in November and December. We int ...

Hello, We plan to travel to Thailand in November and would like to visit a Khao sok national park. We are more independent travelers who prefer to explore hiking trails, kayak, swim, do caving. After reading about the park it seems that we can do many of such activities there. Can they be done without use of the guide, as mentioned above, we prefer to be independent and not to rely on services of the guides, unless we do some serious caving (where the guide is necessary for the trail find ...

Transport (bus and train) on Christmas and New Years Day

Posted by jamiemcl on 30/8/2009 at 17:37

Hi all, First of all, I think this site is awesome! It has helped my hours and hours of research to create an itinerary as I will be travelling by myself for two months. Originally I booked only for a tour 21 Nov - 20 Dec 2009, but have decided since (largely reading sites like this) to add on an extra three weeks to go off and roam on my own (having saved for months on end, and having a break in the middle of university studies). First, I have put together an itinerary I am happy with, t ...

Hi everyone, We're a couple in the early thirties and going to Thailand this November. First we're going to Bangkok and then for 7-8 days on an island in the period 06-14 November.

Relatively quiet island, no big-resort and no overdeveloped type of islands. 2. Not overcrowded beaches with clear water. 3. Some good snorkeling close to the beaches. 4 ...
