London to Bangkok to Laos

Posted by wanderingwalters on 21/7/2009 at 20:22

Hi All Hopefully i've posted this in the right area as i'm not 100% sure of where to ask this, but here goes. I leave Heathrow for Bangkok on 8th November and arrive 7.40, 9th November.

Tourists warned of Thailand airport scam

Posted by busylizzy on 20/7/2009 at 11:09

An article from the BBC News website: Bangkok's showcase new international airport is no stranger to controversy. Built between 2002 and 2006, under the governments of then-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, the opening date was repeatedly delayed. It has been dogged by allegations of corruption, as well as criticism of the design and poor quality of construction. Then, at the end of last year, the airport was shut down for a week after being occupied by anti-government protester ...

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'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 ...
