19 y/o travelling to SE Asia, questions!

Posted by benjturner95 on 5/1/2015 at 17:20

I'm 19 and I've never travelled alone before. I'm going to travel in April/May this year and I'm just looking for some feedback on my plan... I understand that tours are frowned upon by some, but I wouldn't feel comfortable just arriving in a foreign land with no plan so I'm pretty set on doing a 15 day STA tour of Cambodia and Vietnam. The main reason being to meet some people and get a foothold in south-east Asia. Has anyone done a tour like this? After the tour I would really like to spend ...

Time to clear customs in Bangkok and catch domestic flight?

Posted by dfrank24 on 17/5/2015 at 17:30

Hi All, I am looking into international flights into BKK, with connections to Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai. How much time does one typically require to collect checked luggage, clear immigration, and make their way to the gate? I should have a boarding pass, so there won't be a need to stop at a transfer desk. Is a 2 hour layover sufficient in the middle of the afternoon? Thanks! ...

Another question about thai, not about my holiday on the 19th june though.

For the 850 euros I get: Accomodation, Thai lessons and transportation between project ...

14 day visa extension for Thailand?

Posted by danyagreenfield on 6/5/2015 at 10:58

I've read conflicting reports about this so would appreciate updated information - I'm a US citizen and did NOT apply for a visa in advance (didn't think I'd be here longer than a month), rather I received the 30 day visa at the airport. It expires May 15 but I would now like to extend for 14 days. Can anyone verify whether this is possible at the immigration office in Bangkok, or if the maximum extension is only 7 days? If so, what is the cheapest and easiest border run from Bangkok to get a ...

Bangkok Ecotourism

Posted by DawitJoe on 18/4/2015 at 09:33

Hi, I'm a Thai student from Webster University doing research on ecotravel. I had been living in Bangkok, Thailand for most of my life, and I believe that there are many hidden gems for ecotourism in the great city that are often understated. This and this, are great examples that are right in the middle of Bangkok. If you got a few minutes for a survey, I'd appreciate it. But if you don't, here's a few questions: The outskirts of Bangkok has several unique ecotourism attractions, such as crocod ...
