What the hell is happening in Thailand?

Posted by somtam2000 on 12/4/2009 at 18:58

If you're watching the TV news coverage of the situation in Thailand with increasing trepidation, I can't say I blame you. The situation in Bangkok is volatile and appears to be deteriorating rapidly. We'll be writing a longer post about this tomorrow because we want to wait and see what happens overnight -- and we'd advise you to do the same. Keep abreast of the news and we also strongly advise you to get onto Twitter and follow: @newley, @thailandtoday, @andrewspooner, @MAVinBKK, @luke_b ...

Bangkok to Chiang Mai - some suggestions

Posted by somtam2000 on 4/8/2009 at 14:09

Have just added a new feature entitled "What to see between Bangkok and Chiang Mai". It looks briefly at some of the possibilities for those looking for ways to break up the trip. There's an interactive map with it so you can click on the different lines to get brief route explanations and descriptions of the towns. It's far from exhaustive, but should be a handy primer for those scratching their head trying to decide where to go. We'll be adding more of these in the future, so any suggest ...

Hello, we are going to Thai again! Loved it so much last year. This time we'd like to explore Khao Lak and dive Similans. The question is where to stay? I searched the web - there lots of places! We are looking for budget clean aircon accomodation... Our dive-center reccomends "Fah Sai bungalow" which is nowhere in the net. Has anybody heard about it? ...

Is it possible south thailand with 10 euros per day?

Posted by mirkoji on 3/8/2009 at 03:14

Hi everybody, i am thinking to go to Thailand in november or december and stay there about one month in the south. I would like to know if there are cheap places for a backpacker like me. I want to spend no more than 10 euro per day (sleep, food). Some people said me it is very expensive, other people said me it is cheap... So, i really don't know. I usually go to India, where i spend 1 - 3 euro per night (hut or single room) and 1 euro per meal. In Thailand i can spend a little bit more, but ...

2 Weeks in Thailand

Posted by Geezy on 28/7/2009 at 20:08

I have just priced a return flight from Machester to Thailand at the end of next month for £400. Which i think is a very good price. I have never really travelled before and i am really looking forward to it. I am also using this as a trial period for eventually travelling to a lot more places on my own and doing around the world trip. Can anyone offer any advice on where i should go and see within the 2 weeks. This is an impulse trip and i am just throwing myself in. ...

1 month in SE Asia, where to go??

Posted by nickziemann on 12/7/2009 at 00:03

I know this is a loaded question, and I've been researching for weeks already. It is my lady's and my first time to SE Asia and we have a little more than a month to see the land. Its overwhelming to know how much I wont be able to see, but I want to be sure we enjoy our trip rather than rush rush rush. We're going from early OCT to early NOV. Would this basic itinerary be too much to cram in? Bangkok - Chiang Mai (a few days, including an overnight stay with the hill tribes) ...

Too many places, too little time. Angkor, Ayutthaya, Sukhothai

Posted by SybilVane on 31/7/2009 at 06:17

Hi all, I'm still working on my itinerary (and with two more months to go, I bet there will be many changes made). Lately I've been struggling with the thought that I might be trying to do too much, and I might need to leave some places for the next visit. For reference: I'll be traveling for a month, mainly in Thailand, with a bit of Cambodia and Laos. I'll be spending three days exploring Angkor. This is the part that is set in stone. But now I'm wondering if maybe I should give up ...

Khao Sok in August?

Posted by susanah on 30/7/2009 at 12:24

I will be travelling to Thailand with my 10 and 12 year old boys. They want to see the jungle, but I'm wondering if it will be way to rainy to have fun next month? I also read about flash floods. I don't want to be paranoid, but if it's going to be way too soggy there, I'd rather just spend more time in Koh Tao, where we'll go next. Should we catch a ferry from Surat Thani to Koh Tao, or go to Chumphon and go to Koh Tao? What's the fastest way? Any recommendations for a budget/moderat ...
