thailand beaches in june

Posted by kimcrossley on 5/2/2009 at 08:42

We're planning to revisit Bangkok, then a southern island, in late June...possibly Phuket since we haven't been back post-tsunami. I've been reading that many of the Phuket beaches are "unswimmable" that time of year. Is there a better island for us to visit where the beach would be nice in June? We did Krabi in June '04 and were very disappointed - water was 'muddy' and waves were unmanageable. We'd like to avoid that this time. ...

Visa or plane ticket first?

Posted by cubedweller on 3/2/2009 at 23:23

I'll be in Thailand (and possibly the surrounding countries) for about 2 months starting in March. I've yet to buy my plane ticket but was going to do so soon. My dilema is, with only given a 30 day visa on arrival, I will need to apply for a 90-day multiple entry tourist visa (just in case I decide to leave and travel without having to worry about the 15 day pass) before setting off. Should I just go ahead and buy the plane ticket and then head to the Thai Consulate in order to arrange my V ...
