Posted by beachfunguy on 29/5/2009 at 17:52

Hello, I am styaing with the masses in haad sairee right now and really enjoying it. But am keen to explore the island... specifically places like: Ao Hin Wong, Ao Leuk, etc. I saw Johnny posted on the Ko Tao for Non-Divers page that you can walk to the east coast? Is this really possible, anybody have anymore information on it? Read everything about the roads... With it not being wet season, could a scooter make it to some of the eastern coast places? Or do you need a motorbi ...

Best sushi in Bangkok - within reasonable budget?

Posted by jessieo on 28/5/2009 at 18:46

Hi! Can anyone recommend a good sushi place in Bangkok, preferably near Sukhumvit or Silom? Last time there I tried Oishi Grand - and it was pretty good (mind boggling selection!) but at nearly 800 Baht a person I cannot do it this time! I would prefer a smaller place- hopefully Japanese run. My only stipulation is that the restaurant does not serve shark fin. Any help would be great! Thanks in advance. ...

Hi, We are thinking of booking the Peninsula Hotel in Bangkok. Address 333 Charoennakorn Road, Klongsan.

Traveling from BKK to one's hotel, alone, at 22:30

Posted by srk052004 on 18/5/2009 at 07:51

Hi all. This is a newbie question, but for some reason I'm missing some key info. It seems that there have been some problems (cf. Mexico City) with taxis at the airport hijacking you and robbing you. Is this correct? If so, then it is very important to get these instructions clear. Here is what it says in the FAQ: "[Take a ] Taxi and preferably not alone. Ignore all the touts inside the terminal. Leave the terminal and follow the signs for Taxi to get to the rank, where you tell the a ...

Hi, I'm heading to Thailand for a month in August/Sept (10/08 - 09/09), and was wondering if anyone could give me some help on a route to take?

Having read the weather report, we'll probably just spend our last week relaxing in Koh Samui and Koh PhaNgan. We also want to fit in the full moon party on the 4th of Sept. My main problem is deciding what we want to do up north and how long we should s ...
