What is the best island at the end of September?

Posted by vinygo on 11/7/2009 at 18:39

Hi guys, I'm traveling to SE Asia for 3 months from the 20th September and I have a friend joining me for 10 days. She wants to go south and discover an island and I'm not sure where to take her. I've been to Ko Tao and Ko Phan-Ngan in March this year and I love it but I would prefer to discover another place. Should I be worried about the weather? I'm not very keen on going to Phuket but is it better for us to go to (1) Ko Phi-Phi or (2) Ko Samet and Ko Chang or back or souther ...

Best neighborhoods to stay in in Bangkok?

Posted by bellatrx on 13/7/2009 at 08:11

I am overwhelmed by the insane number of options for hotels in Bangkok, and am hoping to get some sound advice on neighborhoods to help narrow down the search a little. 1) I am looking for something that is most decidedly NOT Khao San Road. My priorities are access to transit (sky train?) and access to a walkable, no-nonsense neighborhood with delicious food/markets. It would be nice to be somewhere that is vibrant and active but something approximating a Thai neighborhood. Price range, prob ...

Department of silly laws

Posted by somtam2000 on 9/7/2009 at 21:21

And now for something from the utterly ridiculous department. The Nation reports today that tutorial schools and internet cafes will be closed for 2 weeks from July 13 until 28. This is in a bid to prevent the spreading of "influenza 2009". May I suggest respectfully that instead, they close parliament from July 13 until 28 to protect the rest of the country from more ridiculous rulings like this one. ...
