Posted by Harpreetie on 19/9/2008 at 14:47

Hi guys, I am planning my trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos in early October 2008. I will be flying into Bangkok and then traveling within the region from there.

Thailand Re-Entry

Posted by rsthomas on 17/9/2008 at 17:30

Hello, I am currently in Vietnam and plan to fly from Hanoi to Bangkok on the 25th of September. I didn't get to see all the places I wanted to in Thailand in August, so I extended my trip so I can go back and do the islands. Do you know if I can just re-enter the country or if there is some sort of re-entry visa that needs to be purchased. Thanks for the advice:) ...

Dinner Cruise on Chao Phraya, Bangkok

Posted by ahxian on 8/9/2008 at 23:25

I'm interested in going on a dinner cruise on Chao Phraya. However I found numerous sites offering bookings for the cruises. This site seems the cheapest http://www.hotelthailand.com/thailand-activities/cruise/bangkok.html Is it reliable? Also, these 3 cruises seems about the same: Grand Pearl Dinner Cruise, Chaophraya Cruise Dinner, and Chao Phraya Princess Dinner Cruise. Which is recommended? Thanks. ...

Koh Lanta and Or Koh Lipe

Posted by JustineB on 16/7/2008 at 03:23

Hi there - has anyone stayed at Costa Lanta on Klong Dao Beach? What is the beach like and is it close enough to dip into some bars etc - we don't want to be marooned on a resort, and as long as we can take a bike and dip in and out of some action. Just trying to get a feel for the Island as a whole - we have also heard that Koh Lipe is a great Island - it all gets a bit confusing as to which one to stay/head for? ...

I'm very puzzled right now. I'm arriving in Kuala Lumpur on the 17th of october and from there I want to take a flight to some nice paradise island for 2 weeks. Now, there's the WEATHER factor. What island is the driest in this season? I was going to go to Kho Phangan, but after reading weather forecast i have doubts :|. Every website says something different. Does the rain season mean it will be raining or overcast most of the day, or just for an hour or two? So far my best picks are : ...

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

I was planning a trip to Thailand for my 21st. I planned a 2 week trip to thailand for the second half of december and I was so excited about finally doing some travel. However, the mother of my original travel friend has asked her to bail out because of what is now happening in Thailand. She has been convinced that there is a coup brewing in Thailand and I agreed that the worst thing that could happen on this trip is to be in the middle of a political disaster. However, now I am a little de ...

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 ...
