Why not booking to Thailand

Posted by dellai on 30/11/2008 at 14:17

The planes are fully booked from bangkok to the southern parts of Thailand in case you want to travel and go for the beaches. Next to this is the lift in prices which are quite impressive according to last year. Next to this the problem now is learning the hard way that there is no consumer protection in Thailand and the Thai people are not that friendly as you think they might be, especially during crisis situations. The airlines will just give refund (in case of internet buying) and you hav ...

Stuck in Bangkok - pool?

Posted by sarben on 30/11/2008 at 20:15

Hi I'm one of the 90,000 stuck in the capital and would be so very grateful to find out if anyone knows of a hotel which allows you to use their pool (happy to pay) my feet need a rest and it would be great to have at least one day in the sunshine without inhaling the two-stroke and sewers!!! Would obviously prefer an outdoor pool if poss;-) thanks Sarah ...

NYE in BKK

Posted by Crom on 26/11/2008 at 22:19

Hi guys, I'm trying to decide whether to go to Thailand before or after NY. I'm pretty flexible but want to get something booked up before I go so I have a base for a few days. I've read here that Khao San Road is the hub for travellers and Silom Soi 4 is another good place for NYE. Is BKK worth avoiding given the troubles and given that I'll probably arrive on 30.12 do I have enough time to get out to Krabi or somewhere like that? ...

Online ferry booking?

Posted by shakester on 17/11/2008 at 15:45

Hi fishers after a long disconnect from all things travel I am getting a FEW days off so am hopping to Thailand. Quick question: I fly into Phuket at night (arriv around 7.30pm). I suspect by the time I get to where I am crashing for the night (Karon beach), it will be about 10pm. I need to get out on the morning ferry to Railay (i've checked, since its peak season it seems there is a ferry direct). the only problem is that I arrive too late to go to an agency and buy the next morning's ti ...

Ko Lipe - various questions!

Posted by tracylee on 26/11/2008 at 05:17

Hi- I'll be vacationing in Thailand and was planning on going to Ko Lipe, as I heard it's not quite as nasty touristy as some other places. However - I also heard that it's full of construction at the moment; can anyone provide more info on this?? Also, any suggestions of where to stay? I'd prefer a quiet place with a nice beach. And, finally, just been reading that Hat Yai may be dangerous to pass through, and there are tensions down south. Should I not go there, and instead head some ...

My girlfriend and I have just booked return flights to Bangkok from the UK for a total of 16 nights – arriving on Feb 22 2009.
