hello there, i'll be in thailand for 7 days from the 10th of september to the 17th. i'm thinking about spending a couple days in bangkok, and then moving on to a quiet, beautiful island. that being said, my friends advised me to go to krabi, and i'm highly interested in going to koh lanta. however, after checking out the extensive weather reports, i realize that it is still monsoon season. would it be worth it to go despite the chance of rainfall? there is around a ratio of 1:2 days of ...

vayama and best travel store

I am planning a flight to bangkok from boston in the first week of october. I have been fishing around on all the online travel sites for weeks now and the best prices thus far (by far) are on best travel store and vayama. Has anyone used them? Are they legit? Sketchy? Best travel store's prices are a good three hundred less than most others (and I have included fares and taxes and fees). Vayama is close. If anyone has had an experience with either site i would very much appreciate the inp ...

Phi Phi help!

I am struggling to work out the best area to stay on Phi Phi to suit our requirements - 4 friends (2 couples) for a few days in late October; growing out of backpacking and into flashpacking. Having read all the info around including the Travelfish guide I am still confused about which parts of the island should be avoided if we don't want a full on party place. Is it that if we avoid the Ton Sai village part and stay further towards Long Beach around the Andaman Beach Resort, Bayvew, Viking etc ...

Posted by Punchestown on 25/8/2008 at 03:49

Hi all. My fiancee and I are planning on heading to Thailand for our honeymoon from about December 20 - January 5th or so. We're hoping to stick to the south - for about $100/day (we'd ideally splurge on a few places, then save on others). We're looking for places with pretty beaches, things to do during the day (elephant treks, hiking, snorkeling, etc) with some nightlife - but nothing crazy. We'd like to pick 3 or 4 islands and stick to them - with maybe 2 days in Bangkok. Can anyone recommend ...

Hi all, I'm still looking for a more difficult trip (3-4 days) off the beaten pathways without superfluous sideshow, such as elephant riding and bamboo rafting and so on, surroundings Chiang Rai/Mae Hong Son in a small group of participants (max. 4 persons). I just want to walk in the mountains and watch the scenery of nature around me. I don't wanna do any unreasonable things, visit 5 hilltribe villages a day, drink beer every night in a tribal chief's hut... Has anyone got a same view of the ...

At last phuket town is taking of, a great mix here, where east meets west... Had a great night in the famous o'malley's, 3 floors of fun..jammin is now there too, offering live music everynight, though i prefered the viper room on level 2....If you prefer to chill with your friends then level 3 is for you, pool tables, and a stylish vip room.... There is the roxy bar, here you will find the farang's, similar to micheal's though roxy bar does suit the young more... Note that the farang's aroun ...

You are a great person if you respond to this, thankyou. I was planning to be in Haad Rin for a couple of days and noticed there was a flight out of Surat Thani to BKK Air Asia at 1230 where I will be meeting several friends. I saw there is a songserm express that leaves thongsala at 700 for an arrival in surathani (not donsak) at 1030 some sources say 1100. In regards to this I have the following questions. a) Is this possible/impossible in general. b) How long does a ride from haad rin to ...

I'll be in Thailand October/November, probably Chiang Mai and surrounds and some parts of northeastern and southern Thailand. I haven't worked out a definite itinerary yet. One of the things I've noticed are the number of festivals in Thailand. I'll be able to go to dragon boat races in Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son and will also be in Thailand for Loi Krathong and Buddhist Lent(and no, I am not a Buddhist). There's at least two festivals most months of the year so it could be a good idea to resea ...
