Dengue fever

Posted by cmz11 on 1/8/2008 at 09:56

IS there any real great risk of contracting dengue fever in Thailand or is it very rare? I saw a few articles on the internet saying that there were a decent amount of cases this year but know that most articles just get you overly worried. If so where are areas that precautions need to be taken in and should I be very concerned about this or just travel normally? Thanks! ...

I treid to reserve a bungalow via this agency website for Sea Scene resort on Ko Phangan next January. Back came a reply telling me they are fully booked and offered me an alternative resort. I thought it didn't quite ring true for them to be fully booked so far in advance so I contacted Sea Scene via their own website. Low and behold they have plenty of bungalows for that time. So watch out if you try and book through!!! ...

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. ...

Koh Lanta and Phi Phi - a few questions

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. I have been before but he hasn't, so I was thinking of starting off showing him Bangkok and surrounds (maybe Kanchanaburi if I have enough time as I love it) for 5 days or so. He is also keen to go to an island, I've been to Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan so would like ...

Hi there, I'm trying to figure out the next few things: - how to get from Chiang Mai to the Mae Sa valley? Is this only possible through organised tours or via own motorcycle/car? Or is there a public bus, if so, any idea where I can get my hands on practical info about that mean of public transportation? - how to get from Khao Sok National Park to Ao Krabig? Is it so that the only way to do this is to catch a minibus to Krabi city and from there on head to Ao Krabig? - Also, we've quite ...
