Phuket Airport to Ratsada Pier to Phi Phi to Phi Phi Village

Posted by sandinelau on 19/1/2008 at 23:04

I land at Phuket Airport at 1:05 pm. My end destination is Phi Phi Village (I'm travelling in March 2008). I've read many sites that say the last ferry to Phi Phi is at 1:30 pm, but I have also read 2:30 pm. Is there an official website somewhere that will confirm that the last ferry is definitely 2:30 pm? What is the approximate cost (again, I've seen many different prices quoted) and time? Also, how do I get from Phuket Airport to Ratsada Pier? How much can I expect to pay? Some say t ...

TAT - what is the deal

Posted by somtam2000 on 12/4/2006 at 07:46

A recent post brought up usage of the TAT acronym -- what it really stands for is Tourist Authority of Thailand. The real TAT only furnish travel information -- they do not offer any type of booking or reservation service. In Bangkok and elsewhere you'll come across travel agents who call themselves TAT -- they get away with it by arguing their TAT acronym stands for something -- eg Touts and Twits -- these business are shysters selling overpriced tours to unsuspecting tourists who think they ...

Who know name of this temple?

Posted by cybervlad on 15/1/2008 at 14:47

Hello all, While my trip on Isan in December I visited a temple near Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat). It located near junction highways 2 and 24, between Sikhiu and Nakhon Ratchasima. This is a very popular place among Thai people because there is the monk sitting many years in deep meditation and big image of this monk made from black stone. Unfortunately, I can't read Thai but all information was on Thai only. Here is links to 2 photos: http://cybervlad.net/MyAlbum/2007_12-Thailand/1059.jpg ...

Thai weather - difference between march and april?

Posted by RichP101 on 14/1/2008 at 10:17

Hello all, I'd originally planned to arrive in Thailand for a month from mid-march to mid-April. Having read around, it seems that April is the most hot & humid time and can get unbearable in places. Is there much difference in heat/humidity between going mid-feb to mid-march, and mid-march to mid-april? I'd prefer to do the latter, but the weather reports are a bit offputting. I'd be looking to spend a few days each in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, and a good amount of time partying on the isl ...

Gotta tell everyone about how good Lamai is. Last time we went to Chaweng & had a great time but it was too overdone. Lamai is Chaweng ten years ago I guess, Its got everything including great beaches, fantastic night life & good shopping. My boyfriend & I loved the girly bars around the Muy Thai boxing arena near to Macdonalds. The one in the far corner called "Good Luck bar" I think was great fun. It has drop dead gorgeous girls that are real friendly & I had a great time dancing with them on ...
