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) ...

Hellfire Pass

I recently read that part of Hellfire Pass has been closed due to a rockslide - though the other part remains open. Those intending visiting the site may be reminded that while part is off limits the remainder is still a salutory reminder to how our freedom was achieved. Cheers ...

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 ...

Trying to get some idea of an itinerary and have the following questions. (4 weeks mid Feb-mid March 2010) What are some of the major differences in islands in the west and east coast on the southern penninisula and the islands on the east coast? I am talking about weather, scenery tourist areas etc. Is it possible to get to the islands off the southwest coast of cambodia from the area of Ko Chang and is it worthwhile to do so in terms of them being that much different than the islands i ...

Where to go in early September

My husband and I are traveling to Thailand in early September, spending a few days in Bangkok and then we will have a week where we would like to visit another part of Thailand. Mostly we are looking for somewhere with good weather, nice restaurants and quality massage and a place to stay where we won't feel too crowded and won't be affected by noise in the evenings. At the moment we are considering Chiang Mai or Ko Samet but are open to suggestions. We have already visited Samui. ...

I knew they were pretty stupid but...

Posted by Jon_Mak_Mak on 27/4/2009 at 23:03 seems that Thailand is making it very difficult for tourists as of late, and considering how much money they get (and scam) out of tourist it all seems more stupid. Visa changes, bank charges, riots?!! Not quite as appealing as it was a few years ago is it. Anyway, I’m planning my trip there with my wife and baby to meet her grand parents in January next year so I don’t think I will book anything to far in advance now. Let wait and see what else happens.  ...
