Half A Day in Bangkok - What to Do?

Posted by LChantha on 7/6/2009 at 08:45

Hi, If all goes as planned, I will be arriving from Ubon Ratchatani via Air Asia at 10:10 on 14 Sept 2009. I've got a flight that leaves the next morning from Suvarnabhumi, at 8:10 back to the US, so I want to stay overnight at the Silver Gold Garden Airport Hotel, about 10 minutes from the airport. Since I'll be arriving relatively early in the day, I'm sure that I can get in some Bangkok City sightseeing, as little as it may be. However, I'm a woman and will be traveling alone so I want ...

Should I go at it alone?

Posted by tomclowes on 2/4/2009 at 18:50

Complex one. I am in Thailand on week 2 of an around the world tour. I did not want to go alone, and thus arranged it with a school mate. He since agreed with another mate to all go, so there are 3 of us. After a week, I have realised we want completely different things out of the trip. They want to drink,smoke,party and maybe see a few sites. I want to do everything. I was considering going off alone, but I am very shy, have awful bearings, and up to this point they have organized ...

Safe to arrive at BKK at midnight?

Posted by bellatrx on 18/5/2009 at 10:38

I am considering purchasing a cheap ticket that gets into Bangkok at 10:30 pm -- so it would be quite late by the time we got to a taxi, let alone a hotel. I am wondering how smart it is to do this. How safe is it to navigate the taxi system in the middle of the night? What's the trek like to hotels in Bangkok? Would you recommend this, or should we look at flights at a more reasonable hour? Thanks! ...

We will be in Thailand in July on our Honeymoon for 3 weeks. We are spending 4 days in bangkok, then fly to Ko Samui. So we have 17 days in the islands. We want to mix it up between relaxing and lively. We are thinking of going to Chaweng for lively. Then more relaxed for Thing Ta Kien Bay, Choeng Mon Beach and Mae Nam Beach . These are all relatively close to one another, so relatively easy to get to. We were thinking of Taling Ngam Beach but it looks far away on the map. Is it har ...

Our budget is approx 30 euros/40 dollars per day, plus a couple of hundred on top for extras (hoping to spend no more than about 1200 euros / 1650 dollars). Our accom will be 'flashpacker' - somewhere between budget and mid range! I have checked out all travel between places we want to go and have a good idea about it all. The only things we have booked ahead are accom in BKK on arri ...

Hello, I am styaing with the masses in haad sairee right now and really enjoying it.
