Coconut Bungalows Koh Samet

Posted by Canadiana2007 on 30/11/2007 at 20:16

Hey Everyone, I'm new to this board and can't seem to find a msg search function...so there may be something on here about this already, my apoligies if so. Has anyone ever stayed at the Coconut Bungalows on Koh Samet? If so, what did you think? They're listed in Lonely Planet, but I can't seem to find anything about them online... Thanks! ...

Pai or Soppong ?

Posted by jojo on 30/11/2007 at 10:33

I was in Pai the first time in feb. 2002, and again this year (nov 2007). i must say it changed alot. seems like they are upgrading this small town in the mountains to be an up-market destination. the hippie-flair is almost gone. so what to do ? i went 30mls farther to soppong / Pang Ma Pha and was surprised how unspoiled and neat this area is - amazing ! even good accommodation is available, i.e. Little Eden or T-Rex guesthouse. but i stranded at a place named Rim Doi, a cosy little resort r ...

Visa

Posted by Louise73 on 19/11/2007 at 18:38

I plan to be in Thailand for longer than 30 days. Will I have problems getting the 30 day visa if my return ticket says longer 30 days stay and I have no other ticket showing further travel? Is there any way I can apply for a extension before I travel? If not is it easy to cross a border and cross back the same day in order to get a new 30 day visa? Thanks ...

south Lanta or Ngai?

Posted by shoreliner on 20/11/2007 at 20:36

Have only 8 short nights in Thailand to fit in one andaman island and khao sok national park (greedy, I know, but…). After checking things out a little my thought for the island where either a south lanta beach (mai pai or khlong jaak) or koh nagi or maybe even koh kradan. The only “problem” is the distance between khao sok and any of these islands. I wouldn’t want to “waste” a whole precious day on the road between them and to sleep in krabi or trang town. Lanta seems slightly clo ...

I'm supposed to transfer money (100%) to their account, since they don't do credit cards, and I have never been asked to do this before.. Is this ok ?? I'm planning our first trip ever to Thailand and it sure is a different experience.. ...
