Next Full Moon Party...

Posted by SammyB on 28/4/2009 at 13:10

Hey guys, Been playing around on the site for a weeks now planning a trek, and fly out on Sunday! Dig the site and fully plan on becoming addicted. Anyway, from everything I've read or seen on calenders, the next Full Moon Party is either the 8th or 9th of May, but I haven't seen something for certain. Does anyone know for sure when it will fall? Also, any suggestions for us on where to stay for it, etc? Seems like a nice kickstart to a few months of travel in SEA for the first ti ...

Khao Sok Rainforest Resort

Posted by OralDouglas on 1/5/2009 at 00:31

Khao Sok Rainforest Resort I have been living in Thailand for six months, and before that I have made numerous tours of the southern islands of Thailand on vacations from Japan. In all that time I have never, EVER- been treated so poorly and subject to such horrid service and conditions than those my companions and I encountered during our stay at Khao Sok Rainforest Resort. Day 1 We arrived at Khao Sok Rainforest resort at approximately 4pm. Our group of 21 family members and friends ha ...

Tour Operator- Thailand Travel Plan

Posted by cheeco on 29/4/2009 at 20:23

I was just checking out the tour operator "Thailand Travel Plan" suggested by Travelfish. Has anyone had experience with this operator? The different tours look exellent. I know I could probably do this on my own (treking and visiting villages in the north, island hopping in the south), but would anyone suggest going through this operator to save time/ hassle, etc? Just looking for some insights! Thanks ...

Hello, I will be travelling through Thailand and other SE asia countries for 2 months this summer. I am just wondering what is the cheapest way for me to keep in contact with people back home. I have a quad-band unlocked phone and heard you can purchase pre-paid sim cards over there? Anybody have any info on prices for these? Or is it better to leave my phone at home and use a calling card? Anybody have any suggestions on cheapest rates to Canada? I will probably be calling Canada ...

Island Hopping in June

Posted by beachfunguy on 21/4/2009 at 12:49

Hello all! A friend and I will be doing a few week tour of some Thailand islands in June. We are looking for places with 1. Not too touristy 2. Moderate party scene 3. Some nice isolated and quiet areas to get "away from it all" I have read through many of the island reviews on this site and others and still can't quite decide. Right now our options are: 1. Ko Tao/Pha Gnan/Samui- but are concerned might be too touristy? 2. Phi Phi/Railay/Ton Sai/Ngai/ Lanta/Rok -but are ...

Islands off the beaten track - which best for xmas 09?

Posted by alexlazarus on 15/4/2009 at 00:18

Hi All, We are planning to travel to Thailand this comign Christmas after having such an amazing time there at NY just gone. We covered Kanchanaburi, Ayttaya, Ko Mak & Koh Kood last time, and i was hoping for some advice for this year! The plan is to travel south and explore the islands down there. We really enjoyed the feel and atmosphere of Koh Mak so we'd be looking for similar - quiet, laid back, not busy, and accomodation between 400-600 per night. We stayed at more expensive places l ...

Direct from Chiang Mai to Phuket - how far in advance?

Posted by hospitalbed on 18/4/2009 at 02:48

Hi guys. Flying into Thailand quickly here, and changing up our plans to avoid BKK as much as possible. The original idea was to sleeper train from CM down to BKK, then work our way south and go island hopping. With the current advice out there to avoid Bangkok, we are thinking of flying direct from CM to Phuket , and working our way through the islands with Phuket as a starting point. I've googled/resarched that their is one direct flight per day from CM to Phuket, the rest have a stop ...

Ko Tao Questions

Posted by cbaumga2 on 20/4/2009 at 06:49

My wife and I will be on Ko Tao in June. We are looking for a more remote area, and I was thinking about staying on the East side (should also have calmer water this time if year). I am interested in Ao Hin Wong, but there doesn’t appear to be a beach there. Does anyone know if this is correct? I think my wife would really prefer to stay at a place w/ a beach. What are some other good options on the East side for beauty and beaches? Also, I am interested in renting either a bicycle o ...

Hotel rec on Yao Noi

Hi, I'm a young woman who'll be traveling alone to Koh Yao Noi in a few weeks. I'm looking for a nice place to stay on the island that's safe, clean, and not too basic--I'm more of a flashpacker than a backpacker these days. It would also be great if it had a friendly, social atmosphere. I heard that a new place called Villa Guna is running now. Anyone been there or have contact info? Anyway, any recommendations on where I should stay (or hang out, for matter) would be great. Tha ...
