Short trip near Bangkok

Posted by stroked11 on 15/5/2008 at 10:45

Hi Some friends and I are going to Thailand and Laos in June. However two of us arrive in Bangkok approximately 5 days before the others arrive and we all take a night train north to Laos. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions regarding a small trip the two of us could make for 3 or 4 days before heading back to Bangkok to catch our night train. We are on a fairly tight budget and werent sure if there were any destinations reasonably close by Bangkok that would be cool to visit. ...

Transit Visa (Thailand) with only one-way ticket to Bangkok

Posted by Conni on 20/6/2008 at 05:54

I will work for the WFP in Laos but plan to travel there via Bangkok as flights to Thailand are so much cheaper. From Bangkok I would take the train to Nong Khai, then the bus accross the border. All direct travel. I am German so technically I don't need a visa for stays shorter than a month. I could also get a transit visa, but that would not change my problem: I only booked a one-way ticket, and so far I have not found a way to pre-purchase tickets to Laos (did so for the train but not the bus ...

1 week to see Thailand

Posted by lannypeg on 24/6/2008 at 03:00

I have up to one week to spend in Thailand before moving onto Cambodia. I am not particularly adventurous whereas my husband is looking for elephant spotting and maybe jungle walking. We will fly into Bangkok but then I just don't know where to go. Somewhere where I could shop/ relax on a beach whilst my hubbie does something more adventurous would be perfect. We don't like really touristy resorts though. Can anybody make any suggestions?? ...

Three Week Itinerary Suggestions

Hello Everyone: My husband and I are in the process of planning a three week trip to SE Asia in January (approximately the 3rd to the 23rd). As of now our tentative itinerary looks something like this: Fly into Bangkok -- spend just enough time in Bangkok to get settled, showered, catch up on sleep, etc. (I am thinking about 2 days) before flying to Chang Mai. We plan to spend about three or four days in Chang Mai. Then we would like to rent a motorbike and spend about five days ...

Koh Chang to Hat Lek

Posted by swag on 16/6/2008 at 10:51

Hi all,a couple of questions on the above subject.Can you arrange a speedboat to do this trip or do you have to head back via Trat. I was on Koh Chang in March 06 and after speaking to a couple of travel agents it seemed most minibuses were heading from the island direct to the airport.We were also quoted prices upwards of 2,000 thb to get to Trat by our own minivan. As we are heading to Cambodia there must be a cheaper way of doing this leg to head to Sihanoukville. Regards ...

Hi To start with, very nice and informative site!! I am planning to finish my trip through thailand by hitting one of the thai islands. this for about 8 days, dont want to do too much of hopping btween islands, and ko tao will be my preference.

Questions about Backpacking

Posted by CharFlorica on 8/6/2008 at 05:13

Hello, I have backpacked Europe before, and I know that we often left our packs in the hostel for the day whenever we went sightseeing. We always had our valuables with us in our daypacks when we were out and about. I was just curious whether or not this is the same deal with Thailand and the such.I don't imagine it to be as safe, but I have no idea what so ever. Do you always carry your packs, or is it safe enough to leave it in the guest houses. ...
