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 ...

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!

Posted by KirstyB on 27/8/2008 at 23:50

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 ...

Honeymoon

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 ...
