Bangkok to Hua Hin

Posted by flyer99 on 22/7/2015 at 10:14

We are four adults travelling from Bangkok to Hua Hin and returning to Don Mueang airport in mid October. Since there are four of us with luggage, I thought we might just rent a van and driver. But cost is a major factor. Getting scheduled bus or mini-van may be option but then we still have to get to pick up points and airport, which will add to the cost (not to mention handling luggage). Anyone have any specific suggestions? Thanks ...

Foreign exchange -- best way to do this

Posted by flyer99 on 12/8/2015 at 09:51

There does not seem to be any recent data on this, so thought I would ask. I am trying to figure out the best way to get Thai Baht with Canadian dollars. The web site says that 10,000 THB should cost about $370., but my bank wants $402. I realize they will get at least 2.5% more than the international daily rate but this amounts to nearly 10% -- ridiculous. So, if anyone is in Bangkok right now, could you please check the board at a local exchange place and tell be what the rate is ...

VERY Last Minute 2 Week Trip - Help Please!

Posted by kiminthailand on 14/8/2015 at 04:46

Hello Everyone, due to unexpected circumstances, I will have two weeks of travel starting on August 16th. As you can imagine, I am excited but nervous (hence me posting at 3AM) and have been browsing the forum to figure out what I can do in this time. I will be flying in and out of BKK from LAX. I have traveled quite a bit and enjoy fast paced travel - so for something this incredibly short I would like to make the most of it and hopefully get a sampler of some cool places to visit in the region ...

Is Kanchanaburi super touristy? how about Sukhothai?

Posted by Yesterday on 10/8/2015 at 01:07

Hi, I wondered if Kanchanaburi is super touristy along the lines of Chiang Mai? I really don't like the super tourist vibe (eg. Chiang Mai, Hoi An, Siem Reap, Ubud). But I would like to go to Erawan National Park and wondered how long to spend in Kanchanaburi. I'm not really interested in any war history. From there Sangkhlaburi would be the plan. I also think Sukhothai looks like a lovely town, thoughts? Just to describe what sort of experience I enjoy - swimming in waterfalls, some cycli ...

Snorkeling from the shore in November?

Posted by benzine4 on 2/8/2015 at 12:56

As part of a six-month trip in SEA we are looking for a good spot for snorkeling from the shore during the last three weeks of November. We feel overwhelmed by the hundreds of possibilities and still not sure how to deal with the changing weather of November though it seems the west coast is a better guess. We are two quiet persons in the fifties. We don't mind snorkelling at the same place over and over, we like to find a spot and stay there for a few weeks, 3 in this case. Budget is limited b ...

BEWARE Travex 'Phantip' bus rip off Bangkok to Krabi / Ao Nang

Posted by cornishcouple on 10/8/2015 at 22:37

Okay, Travex booked our travel arrangements by email from the UK. Great they booked and train and transfer to Krabi . This side of their service we can't fault. Whilst they were arranging our travel their communication was very good. However things have changed since I've put in a complaint against the bus service they use between Surat Thani and Krabi. Online the over night train arrives in ST station at about 7. We were about 45 minutes late, you come to expect small delays but we were not ...

14 days in Thailand over ambitions?

Posted by auroraphillips on 2/8/2015 at 08:19

Hi there, we are planning a trip for the first couple of weeks in October and would like some advise/suggestions please. My friends are visiting Thailand for the first time and I'd like to be able to show them as much as Thailand has to offer. We are a fairly active group of ladies (late 20s) so laying about in the sun isn't something we are too interested in, we are also definitely past it for Full Moon parties too. Maybe a break by the beach once or twice would be nice. We are really intereste ...

Bad experience at Ning's Place, Prachup Khiri Khan

Posted by galapapuss on 6/8/2015 at 05:38

Firstly, I'd like to say that I don't criticise accommodation providers lightly as I recognise that there are often 2+ sides to a story. In this case, however, I feel sufficiently incensed to override such sensitivity. Apologies if this is in the wrong section/forum but I couldn't find a review option on the accommodation listing page. I called at this brightly-hued Rasta -themed place at 2pm one afternoon to enquire if a room would be available later that week. I was looking to book for at lea ...
