Spend at least a couple of days in Bangkok 5. Basically chill out with the option to do some other things if the mood takes me... Originally I'd thought spend some time in bangkok, Kanchanaburi, Chaing Mai, Ko Tao.. but I'll end up spending all my time on trains, buses; and in airports. So - perhaps more rea ...

Backpacking with a Laptop

Posted by cubedweller on 12/2/2009 at 00:43

Hello, I'll be leaving for Thailand in March and will be staying for approximately 2 months. For the first half of the trip I will be staying in pretty hi-end resorts; for the second half, I will be met by friends and we will continue on in the typical 'backpacker' fashion; cheap accommodations, travel, etc. I'd really love to bring my laptop for various reasons; updating my iPod, backing up my photos, editing photos and general WiFi connectivity where available. My only problem is, I'm s ...

Since it's so hot, I was considering not spending much time in Bangkok and spending 1 week in the north and 1 week in Tonsai/Railey area. We do plan on doing some rock climbing. Is it going to be too hot to climb? Is it worth going over to Ko Phi Phi (again, interested in climbing)? ...

My girlfriend and i might plan to go to Ko Pha Nagn and surrounding areas(maybe Railey Beach and Phi Phi) for a month or two, leaving for there at latest at the start of June. I know its coming into the rainy season but, will the weather still be ok? will it still be sunny and warm? Or can we expect rain all day everyday?

Will be travelling Bangkok/Phnom Penh/Bangkok, April/May 2009, and am seeking advice whether it is best to book now, or perhaps wait until closer to the time (maybe 1 month before). Does Airasia put out specials closer to flight time or are the flights cheaper the earlier you book. At present can get a return flight for Baht5056 with 20kg baggage allowance and a chosen seat alloaction. Any advice appreciated. ...

New story: Teaching English in Thailand

Posted by somtam2000 on 23/2/2009 at 10:10

For some travellers to Southeast Asia, the lure of a job in the region is just too strong and instead of heading home they decide to stay. Teaching English -- either as a way to legally stay in the country for a long stretch of time, or as a means to try and save money before continuing your travels, remains one of the most popular avenues of work. The real deal alas is often not quite as glamorous as the glossy brochures suggest, and there's no shortage of tales of woe. Travelfish researc ...
