Spending money

Posted by mitchlou84 on 7/1/2008 at 17:52

We have got our trip booked now and all hotels are booked. We are going to Bangkok for 3 nights, Chaing Mai 3 nights, Phuket 6 nights and a final one in Bangkok before flying home. Hotels are paid for, as are domestic flights. We get breakfast every day also. We need spending money for the fortnight trip to include lunch and dinner, alcoholic drinks (wine for me beer for him) most transfers, souvenier shopping and sightseeing. We will eat lunch as cheap as poss but we do like to eat ...

which airport?

Posted by alisonmilliken on 10/1/2008 at 09:50

Hi, Am wondering about domestic flights and which airport they go from. I heard they are using the old don Muang one for domestic flights now... do all domestic flights go from there, or does it depend on which airline you are flying? Thanks, ALISON ...

How would you route your 6 weeks...

Posted by cardam on 9/1/2008 at 10:33

Hi All, Just looking for a few suggestions from all you seasoned travellers! I've been trawling through the suggested itineries on the site and seem to be getting bogged down with the infinite possibilities! Bascially I fly solo into Bangkok on the 18 Feb and have to be in NZ by the start of April and really want to make the most of my time. I don't want to run ragged and so am just aiming for Thailand/Laos with a self promise to come back again (unless anyone thinks otherwise, I'm all ears!) ...

storing luggage in bangkok, any ideas?

Posted by cyndi on 30/11/2007 at 06:49

I think I can store luggage in a locker at the Bangkok airport but I've heard it costs about $3 a day. I'm too cheap for that. I've thought of just leaving it at a guest house or going to the Hualumpong train station from the airport and leaving it there. Someone said storage lockers are about 10-20 baht per day at the train station. Anyone have any tips on what would be the best thing to do? Also, how do I get from the airport to the train station and how long does it take? ...

Hi there, We have 5 days after leaving Bangkok before reaching Chiang Mai. I realize we can't do too much in that time, but I'd like to get some opinions. To those of you who have been to KANCHANBURI+ERAWAN FALLS - AYUTHAYA - SUKHOTHAI and LAMPANG ELEPHANT CAMP which would be on your not to miss list. If it came down to AYUTHAYA or SUKHOTHAI which is more impressive? Thank you for any help and feedback. ...

Don Muang Airport/Train station

Posted by msaw on 4/1/2008 at 09:56

My friends and I are travelling from Chiang Mai to Phuket and looking for the cheapest way to do so. I'm looking into the option of taking a sleeper train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok and then getting a flight to Phuket from BKK. I've noticed the sleeper train stops at Don Muang at 8am, and there is a flight from Don Muang airport to Phuket at 9.20am. If anyone has been to Don Muang can you please tell me if the airport terminal and train station are close to each other and whether we'd be abl ...

Koh Lipe from Malaysian

Posted by skinnylatte on 31/12/2007 at 03:52

Sorry, hit enter too quickly without entering text in message, and don't see an edit button anywhere -- I meant to say: I intend to get on the Langkawi Express from Kuala Lumpur to Hat Yai, get a minibus to Pakbara pier, then catch the 1pm ferry to Koh Lipe. According to malaysian railways' website, the train is supposed to get to Hat Yai at 1120h. This might leave me with too little time to travel to Pakbara, and I would hate to miss that last boat. Does anyone know anything about ...

Ko Lipe to Malaysia

Posted by simonfg on 21/12/2007 at 18:33

Gidday, We're heading from Ko Lipe to Malaysia in a couple of weeks. Apparently, there was at some point a boat from Lipe / Tarutao to the Tammalang pier near Satun, where you can grab a boat to Kuala Perlis. But our guidebook says this service has been suspended. Does anyone know if this - or a similar - service is running? Or other suggestions for getting into Malaysia? Our only other option will be to backtrack up to Pak Bara and then bus it to Satun.
