Going to Malaysia for a visa run?

Posted by cubedweller on 13/2/2009 at 01:08

Any thoughts or a ...

I'm current in Ko Samui and will be around here and local islands for 1 week. not sure for the 5 days after that I am then heading up to chang mai and around that region (possible pai) for a week then going on to laos and cambodia. I'm going well over budget and think having some to share a room with and some expenses would be of benefit to both. For some reason people only seem to travel in even numbers! maybe that because its couples and people smart enough to go with someone else and sa ...

a week to explore - starting in Phuket

Posted by pilinka on 9/2/2009 at 16:39

A friend and I are going to Phuket in March and will be in Thailand for three weeks. I am visiting family in Phuket so want to stay mostly there, but my friend who is a first time traveller would like to see some old/ancient/architecture/temples/ruins and such. I am thinking of taking her to Nakorn Si Thammarat, but wonder if anyone has some other ideas. Going all the way up north seems kind of far and complicated, so would prefer to stick within the Southern regions. ...

On our last day in Bangkok, we will be coming from the Suvarnabhumi Airport (back from Krabi) and will need a place to stay for one night. On our last night we would like to visit Suan Lum Night Bazar if its still open at the time. The next morning we fly home. Most likely we will be at Suan Lum until late and will need to take a taxi back to our hotel.
