Political tensions in Thailand and brewing coup. To go or not to go HELP

Posted by firsttimetraveller on 12/9/2008 at 18:17

However, now I am a little de ...

bungalows, bed bugs...

Posted by bananapunk on 11/9/2008 at 20:08

hey guys, I was looking up some bungalows on koh phangan through tripadvisor, and something i didn't think about came up. Bed bugs! Is it true that pretty much all cheaper bungalows got bed bugs? There's no way in hell i can sleep with those bastards, is there some kind of prevention method I'm not aware of? Also, do those bungalows have locked doors/windows? i mean can i lock my luggage in there? thanks in advance! ...

Thai islands January- island hopping

Posted by maliamaui on 13/8/2008 at 15:20

My husband and I have about 4-5 nights at the end of our SE Asia trip around the 14th January 09 (I know--planning way ahead). We were looking at going around the Ko Lipe or Ko Lanta area. It looks from the weather map like it is drier in that region in January? I'm from Maui so we're looking to do more than just hang on the beach. We would like to do day trips to other islands, snorkel and hike through jungle or to viewpoints of other islands, and hopefully be where tourists do not severe ...
