Silom Hotels

Posted by CunningMcFar on 1/8/2008 at 00:00

OK, my wife and I will be spending about 4 days in BKK at the end of our Nov trip this year and are keen on staying in the Silom area, preferably near Sala Daeng BTS. We've checked out some of the boutique hotels like Inn Saladaeng and Baan Saladaeng, but I think we might prefer to forgo the boutique atmosphere for somewhere with a few more amenities, notably a pool, and the more desirable rooms at Baan Saladaeng are already booked out at that time. Our budget is 3000 THB/night max. Any recomm ...

Ya Ya resort railay

Posted by carolynwhitaker on 29/7/2008 at 10:20

Disgusting, filthy, rats, cockroaches, frogs jumping around room. Just a bucket of water and container to flush the toilets - how does one get rid of the floaties? Bathroom/shower black with mould, nails to hang up clothes. Restaurant meal was disgustingly bad. Certainly not like the photos on their website. Paid the money but could not bring ourselves to stay there and shifted the same night as booking in. Should be had up for false advertising. ...

Charlie House Pinklao

Posted by pam80 on 24/7/2008 at 09:13

A warning to first timers in Bangkok, this small hotel advertises itself as central to all attractions and although it is clean and comfortable, central it is definitely not. It is situated down a grimy 500 metre alleyway off a busy road, and has a tuk-tuk with which guests are shuttled to and from to a nearby petrol station where the taxi's stop. But the main problem is getting back to the hotel from other parts of Bangkok after a day out - most taxis and tuk-tuks refuse to take one there excep ...

Hi everyone, I've been attending a diving course and it is divided to the two parts. First part runs in a classroom and in a swimming pool in Prague and the second one can be finished on the island Koh Yao Yai in Thailand (Elixir Resort). Has anyone ever been to this island? Which is the best connection between the Yao Yai island and Bangkok? Is it good choice weatherwise at the beginning of September? Thanks a lot. Filip, Czech Rep. ...

Hello, I'm new to the website and finding it really useful so far, so thought I would join in and ask a couple of questions! My boyfriend and I are planning a 17 night trip to Thailand late November-early December.

He is also keen to go to an island, I've been to Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan so would like ...

Tourists: ignore the begging elephants in the cities and don't buy food please!

Posted by mistifarang on 18/7/2008 at 14:18

The begging elephants are getting in the street-scene of Bangkok (and other towns) again more and more common unfortunately. This abuse is against the Thai law but this law has not been enforced in a proper way. One of the reasons is that, when the authorities are coming into action the mahouts are getting besurk, going very far in that. The poor Elephants are suffering day-in-day-out under abnormal circumstances, sometimes they are not fed well resulting in food-poisening, stress of noises and ...

Hi all, I'm gonna spend my vacantion in Thailand between Sep. 7 and Sep. 21 with my wife and I've decided I'd cover a trek to the mountains (Chiang Mai/ Chiang Rai surroundings) in northern Thailand in my plans. However, recently I deal with a question about outdoor equipment, such as appropriate shoes, clothing, backpack, gps and so on.

East or West - December

Posted by mark1980 on 14/7/2008 at 23:37

Hi, We are finalising our trip and we will be in Thailand from the 5th December (2008) until the 7th January. We're planning on going up to Chang Mai and then coming back down to Bangkok for around the 20th December - our dilemma is whether to spend our time from this point onwards on Ko Phagnan and then moving towards the Western islands after Xmas OR to fly straight down to Krabi and stay around this area. Now the other dilemma is money! Things look rather expensive in Krabi compared t ...
