Bungalows on the beach

Posted by rglempera on 19/12/2008 at 23:59

Hello, Rick from Toronto here. I was recently married, my wife and I are heading to Thailand for a month-long honeymoon, from mid-January to mid-February. Our first order of business upon arriving is to find a bungalow/villa on a beautiful beach on a laid-back island to just RELAX for a week. I have looked on, perhap literally, hundreds of web sites looking for a place. I've found several that look nice, but it's always hard to tell from the limited pics/descriptions online. Does an ...

Chiang Mai to Siem Reap Flights

Posted by mattzago on 5/1/2009 at 01:12

Hello, I'm trying to look for a flight from Chiang Mai to Siem Reap via Bangkok Airlines around January 31st. Their websites doesn't list any flights beyond January 8th going directly from Chiang Mai to Siem Reap. I e-mailed Bangkok Airlines, but didn't get a response. Does anyone know if they are going to stop service on this route, or do they just typically not have more than one week of flight schedules available for this particular flight. Or better yet if anyone has other travel recommen ...

Is Thailand a bargain now?

Posted by squong on 3/1/2009 at 17:14

There are some news reports saying that Thailand is a deal now due to the political turmoil. Is this true, and if so, is it only affecting high end resorts? What about remote areas or less expensive hotels (hostels and slightly better). http://www.reuters.com/article/GCA-CreditCrisis/idUSTRE4BO01H20081225 Khob-kun ...

Hi, We are going to Southern Thailand in July 2008 to get married. I am leaning heavily towards Ko Lanta, so just want to check general weather conditions. I have been to Southern Thailand in Juky before - in July 2005 we spent 2 weeks in Trang. The wester then was great - it only rained once - for only an hour in the evening. So is it similar in KO Lanta? I don't mind rain, really, and I actually like storms too... ALISON ...

Thailand Visas and Itineraries

Posted by carpeybiggs on 30/12/2008 at 10:10

First off, many thanks to the many people contributing to this site. I just stumbled upon it, and am pleasantly surprised by the information. I have stumbled into a very nice opportunity to go to Southeast Asia for approximately 10 weeks. I am flying into Bangkok on Jan. 10, but I haven't the time to flesh out my itinerary precisely. My biggest concern is the new Thai visa changes. We would like to see Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia, and possibly Vietnam, if it isn't too much trouble. Wh ...

Chiang Dao/Mae Hong Son loop

Posted by amz155 on 31/12/2008 at 21:46

Been reading up on the MHS loop from Chiang Mai, and Chiang Dao. But Chiang Dao isn't really mentioned as a stop over along the MHS loop. Starting in Chiang Mai, can we go via Chiang Dao (stop over for 1 day) and then continue directly to Mae Hong Son? We have only 8 days so I'm now thinking 3 days Chiang Mai, 1 day Chiang Dao, 3 days Mae Hong Son, plus one day's worth travel time. Would this work starting and ending in Chiang Mai? Too rushed? I know there are other good stop al ...

Koh Jum vs. Koh Yao Yai

Posted by amz155 on 8/1/2009 at 04:08

Thought I had finally decided on Koh Jum to visit after visiting Ao Nang/Railay and Lanta, But now am back to also considering either Yao Yai or Yao Noi. (most likely Yai). Which island would be best: i) for chilling out on a beautiful, swimmable beach for 2-3 days ii) as a compliment to the other two areas we are visiting Jum OR either of Yao Yai or Yao Noi? Better beaches on Yao Yai or Jum? We are flying in and out of Krabi, so Jum would be most convenient for catching ...
