Thai / Malay border - terrorist threat?

Posted by Sparts on 25/6/2009 at 21:54

I urgently require help with this. I was planning on travelling from Thailand to the Perhentian Islands but have become very worried by the UK Foreigns Office advice to not travel to this region. Personally I feel that the Foreign office always take things a bit too far, but I've seen quite a few websites advise against travelling here - flying into Narathiwat and then overland to Kota Bharu. Question is, am I going to get shot or bombed? Are the attacks targeted at westerners? ...

Green Tulip Guesthouse

Posted by bhag on 24/6/2009 at 08:32

We just arrived to Chiang Mai in an overnight bus from BKK right after our trip to Cambodia. Excited to visit Chiang Mai we used Travelfish to find our accommodation in a hurry @ the airport. We read the description on TF and went to their website before booking. There is no mention anywhere about NO children under 12 "policy". So we called the guesthouse directly about booking there and if they had rooms available, etc. The place looked nice, we wanted ...

Thailand visa change IMPORTANT!

Posted by somtam2000 on 4/12/2008 at 13:12

The Thai immigration authorities have announced a change to the visa-free entry programme effective immediately. The 30-day visa free arrival is ONLY AVAILABLE if you are arriving in Thailand by air. If you arriving by land, you will be given ONLY 15 DAYS. This is being applied at all border crossings into and out of Thailand. The purported target of the rule change is (yet again) foreigners working illegally in Thailand on the 30-day pass, but in effect it is going to punish legiti ...
