Will I melt?

Posted by mrnoxious on 4/2/2009 at 23:25

Hi, I've been browsing through the Travelfish site for a few weeks now and have to say, wow, so much useful info. We have booked flights to Thailand in May for our honeymoon. We are aiming to spend a week or two in the North, Chiang Mai for a bit of trekking and then a week or two on the beach, probably Ko Samui or nearby islands. (With a small amount of time in Bangkok as it's our first visit to Thailand) I am a very fair skinned person that is particularly susceptible to burning when ...

Which Southern Island

Posted by Dogarama on 25/9/2008 at 20:05

I am visiting Thailand in late November and have been searching for an ideal island destination for late in the trip, following visits to Bangkok, Cambodia and Laos. We are looking for something very relaxing, not overly touristy, with some beautiful scenery, perhaps a "diamond in the rough." We were looking at Samui/Tao/Phangan and were leaning toward the latter. Is the weather in issue in late November? Should we be considering another area (Krabi or elsewhere)? If weather is suitabl ...

thailand beaches in june

Posted by kimcrossley on 5/2/2009 at 08:42

We're planning to revisit Bangkok, then a southern island, in late June...possibly Phuket since we haven't been back post-tsunami. I've been reading that many of the Phuket beaches are "unswimmable" that time of year. Is there a better island for us to visit where the beach would be nice in June? We did Krabi in June '04 and were very disappointed - water was 'muddy' and waves were unmanageable. We'd like to avoid that this time. ...

Visa or plane ticket first?

Posted by cubedweller on 3/2/2009 at 23:23

I'll be in Thailand (and possibly the surrounding countries) for about 2 months starting in March. I've yet to buy my plane ticket but was going to do so soon. My dilema is, with only given a 30 day visa on arrival, I will need to apply for a 90-day multiple entry tourist visa (just in case I decide to leave and travel without having to worry about the 15 day pass) before setting off. Should I just go ahead and buy the plane ticket and then head to the Thai Consulate in order to arrange my V ...
