Question about Lanta

Posted by mrlithe on 17/5/2008 at 04:09

I'm thinking of going to Relax Bay on Ko Lanta this winter with a group and I'm looking for some budget options that are nearby (as it isn't that cheap). Something that would be walkable to Relax Bay. I've heard Nautilus and Lanta Marina Resort are close, is that true? Any suggestions? Thanks. ...

Itinerary suggestions

Posted by qwertyjjj on 16/5/2008 at 23:29

Hi I am planning on getting into Bangkok from Tokyo and then trav elling around Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos. Can you please help with some suggestions for the itinerary?

It was suggested that I fly to Bangkok from Tokyo as it would be easier to sort all the tours and stuff there (plus visas) rather than flying into Hanoi. Tokyo, Ja ...

Posted by CJHorn85 on 12/5/2008 at 20:06

Hey all, I will be travelling to SEA from mid-July to mid September (just under 2 1/2 months).

Since this is the Thailand destination part, I thought I would stick to that, and post my itinerary up for the other countries in the relevant sections. Here is my planned itinerary: Chiang Mai - 6 days (that includes some ...
