Penang to Krabi

Posted by cathg on 10/12/2008 at 00:01

Hi all Does anyone have any experience of travelling overland from Penang to Krabi? If yes, maybe you could help: What's the best way to do this - train & bus? only bus? Can it be done in one go, or would I have to do it in bits? How long approx is the journey? And is getting the visa at the border relatively simple? Thanks! ...

Wanting to find the Utopian life. Beer find for repliers;)

Posted by BellsCinnamon on 3/11/2008 at 18:26

I'm landing in Thailand the first of May next year. This is the beginning of a long trip for me. First of all I'm doing my Dive master in KohTao, and I'll probably be finished around the end of August – 09. I might do a few sailing courses since I might try to get a job on a boat when I’m bankrupted. Besides that, I got no plans. Then my questions start: I’m thinking of exploring Asia, before I maybe go down to Australia or/ and South America. The whole idea with this is to stay abroad ...

Hi to everybody, I just come back from Thailand back to home. I really enjoyed. I spent three marvellous weeks around Thailand. I was travelling alone. And I visited Koh Chang, Koh Samet, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phitsalunok and Pattaya. I was using services of thai travel agency. And I must say that all services which I bought through them was excellent. They secure accommodation in real paradise at Koh Chang Island, managed transfer transport from Pattaya to Ban ...

Flights from Bangkok to Mae Hong Son

Posted by hjf456 on 2/12/2008 at 20:38

The only direct airline flying from BKK to MHS appears to be PB Air but on their website they don't allow you to select a date to travel on. Does anyone know the latest news on this route? I know Thai Air flies to MHS from BKK, but it goes via Chaing Mai - and if I'm going to do that route I'd more likely choose Air Asia (to CM) and then Nok Air (to MHS) as it works out cheaper. Any help gratefully received. We're leaving BKK on Feb 23rd and return on Mar 1st Thanks ...

The train to Kanchanaburi

Posted by LancasterLad on 31/10/2008 at 12:18

Do it! The 1355 from Thonburi takes 2.5 hours and is great fun compared to a bus ride through mainly ugly urban sprawl. Only 100 bahts too! Three Top tips in Kanchanaburi. Hire a pushbike, get out of town and enjoy the scenery. Get the non-aircon bus to Hellfire Pass and do the walk, or at least part of it. Then get the bus back to Namtok, and take the 1515 train back to Kanchanaburi - brilliant day out. And do spend a few minutes visiting a war cemetary - very moving experience. Pete ...

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 ...

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? ...
