Where to stay for a month?

Posted by Anderson85 on 7/5/2008 at 04:36

Bangkok - klong tours

Posted by liquefiedstars on 4/5/2008 at 20:25

What is a reasonable price I should bargain for for a klong tour around the canals? Also, I'm traveling alone so it's not so cost effective for me to hire out a long-tail boat by myself. Are there group tours of any sort? Many thanks. ...

Long neck tribe

Posted by bjojan on 4/5/2008 at 05:55

We are a couple planning to visit Chiang Mai before we head over to Cambodia, and we would like to visit the long neck hill tribes. Have anyone any experience with this ? Any hints / tips about which tour company to use, and what trip to take ? Which tribe to visit ? Stay a night over or do everything from Chiang Mai ? We only want a daytrip to the village, no 2 or 3 days trek.. And we are on a budget so we are not the priciest alternatives if we can help it :-) Would love some feedback ...

Transfer from Phi Phi to Phuket????

Posted by germcmanus on 1/5/2008 at 06:07
