Posted by rhingo on 31/10/2008 at 21:19

Hi there: we're flying from BKK to Krabi 12/9, and want to catch a ferry to Lanta that day. unfortunately, we're hearing conflicting reports about the ferry schedule, with some sites saying two ferries per day, and others saying only one in the morning. Our flight doesn't arrive until 12.00, so we're hoping there's an afternoon one available. Can anyone assist? Thanks in advance! ...

Bangkok hotel and area recommendations please

Posted by PT109 on 8/10/2008 at 03:08

Hi, we're two adults and two young children going to be in Bangkojk for the first time. We'll just be in transit for two days looking for somewhere easy to reach, safe and with good facilities so we can recover from our flight. We had thought of splashing out on a luxury hotel although many will be booked full on the New Year's period. Any recommendations on hotels or areas appreciated. ...

Hello, can someone recommend a place in Bangkok to celebrate Loy Krathong? Last year we were at Phra Sumen Fort, it was nice, but maybe there are better places especially to see the Krathongs in the water. Best regards Frank ...

Nice place to dine near Moon Bar BKK

Posted by chaosclaire on 28/10/2008 at 17:23

Hi there, I'm looking for a Swanky-ish Thai place to dine near the Moon Bar in Bangkok. I heard the food at the Moon Bar isn't so good, considering the price - or is that wrong do you think? My parents are visiting, and my Mum, had a windfall on the Premium Bonds so she'd like to treat us:) There will be four of us and the win was fifty quid, so that gives us a budget of about 600Baht per person. It has to be within about 5-10 minutes walk as me Dad's knees aren't what they were:) Any sugges ...

Ubon Ratchthani to Trat overland

Posted by TheSnowQueen on 27/10/2008 at 03:22

I'm interested in travelling overland from Ubon Ratchathani to Trat, preferably avoiding Bangkok and, instead, by road or rail, cutting East and perhaps staying close to Cambodian border or stopping off to see Khao Yai National Park. Has anyone done this journey or know how easy it is to travel this route? Planning to do this sometime in January and would be very grateful for any info or intelligence (especially as there have been problems recently between Thai and Cambodians near border (Preaha ...

East coast or West coast thailand?

Posted by steffanmathias on 20/10/2008 at 16:45

I have about a week for some beach time in thailand - as far as i can see Ko Pha Ngan and Ko Samui are pleasant and fun, where as the other side - Ko phi phi, Krabi etc seem more idyllic and pretty - in my mind the west coast is the obvious choice, but i feel like i'm missing something. I'd like to do some relaxing and a little partying, and i'm not really into diving, though wouldn't mind some light snorkelling Can anyone offer any advice? For instance, is either side alot more expensive/a bi ...

Ko Lanta

Posted by arieltarr on 23/10/2008 at 00:21

Hello, Has anyone stayed at Eyes Lanta? It looks very nice and is new. It's a mountainside resort but they say the beach is 5 min. away. I'm looking for a quiet place on Ko Lanta to stay for our honeymoon between Jan. 5-12. We can't afford a $300-400 / night place. We're looking for something more around $100-200. I've also been looking at Sri Lanta and Costa Lanta though both have mixed reviews. We like modern design however the whole point of being in Southern Thailand is to have nice beach ...

Backpacking Dec 13-Jan 8

Posted by mboconno on 23/10/2008 at 03:33

I am a first time backpacker and was planning on going to Thailand from dec 14-Jan 8. I just got the idea for the trip and have done little to prepare besides purchase airfare and read travel books/online blogs. I was hoping to spend a few days in the north and a majority of the trip in the south. However, I am concerned that I will not be able to find places to stay at night on my measly backpackers budget. Are my fears off? Will I be able to find good accomadations in nice areas of the nor ...

Pai to Luang Prabang to .........?

Posted by mic59 on 22/10/2008 at 19:19

I am currently in Pai one week into a 6-week holiday. I intend to stay a week in Soppong and Tham Lod and then return to Pai where I have purchased an open ticket to Luang Prabang. Slow boat so I would assume I would get to Luang Prabang by about 1st November. Is there a way to get directly back into Thailand as I would like to be in Nong Khai to see Loy Kratong on 12 November. All I have seen so far is that you can take a plane to Bangkok and I would prefer not to have to do that. Apart from th ...

Motion sickness

Posted by mic59 on 22/10/2008 at 10:55

Thought it might be an idea to point out that motion sickness can be a problem on the minibusses in the Northern area of Thailand. Mainly because of speed, road quality and the huge number of turns and rises. Try otherwise to not use a minibus or if you do sit in the middle of it to keep your motion to a minimum. ...

Looking for a nice small island like Koh Lipe

Posted by wessatong on 7/10/2008 at 10:11

Okay, I know it's a silly request since I should just go back to Koh Lipe, but I was wondering if there are any other islands as cool as Lipe which I can check out this December. Something that is small, has only about 3-5 beaches, is not too overpopulated or touristy, and decent sand and water quality. Is that too much to ask? Or should I just return to the paradise that is Lipe, content in the fact that it's one-of-a-kind? ...
