Is there a limit to how many times I can enter Thailand?

Posted by roro1990 on 6/4/2015 at 14:56

So i'm from one of the many countries that qualifies for a 30 day stay in Thailand on arrival by air, and 15 by land. My question is whether there is a limit to how many times I can do this within a short period of time? In my case, I went into Thailand in October 2014 for 3 weeks. Returned again in February this year for 4 weeks before leaving and returning again in March for another 10 days. I now want to go back to see Songkran before going to Australia on a working holiday, and my question i ...

Double Entry Visa and Tourist Visa

Posted by irig0ld on 24/3/2015 at 22:58

Hi there guys, A visa question here. I'm from the Netherlands and I'm planning to stay in Thailand (Bangkok) for at least 3/4 months, but before I stay there (myself) I'm planning to take a little trip around Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines and Bali with my cousin. The plan is to also go to Thailand with him on this trip for about a month at the start of our trip. Here's where I'm getting confused about the visa. I was planning to get a double entry visa that would allow me to stay in Th ...

Where can I have the best elephant experience?

Posted by karenosullivan on 9/3/2015 at 20:07

I'm planning on backpacking around south east Asia for about 4 months. I believe one of my highlights will be spending time with elephants. I was disturbed to read how about how elephants are treated for the sake of the tourist trade and I do not want to take part in it. Can anyone recommend a place where the elephants are treated well and where I can have the best experience with these gentle beasts? From my research, Elephant world and Elephant Nature Park seem to have a good rep? ...

Itinerary Trang Islands

Posted by RTD on 20/3/2015 at 05:22

Hi everybody, I am planning a 2 week trip to the Andaman Sea. I will arrive in Krabi on the 5th of April at 4PM and I'll take a transfer to Pak Meng on the same day. I first intended to visit the Trang islands and go up to Koh Lanta and Ko Yao. My return flight is on the 18th of April from Phuket. My first idea was to go to Lipe and above all to Bulon but the latter seems to be difficult to reach from the 1st Apr. as the speedboats (Bundaya and Satun Pakbara) do not operate anymore from Lan ...

Pajampo bike rental scam!

Posted by Rexmundi on 27/3/2015 at 23:30

Just got done talking with koh phangan police and the owner of pajampo bike rental. When I returned the bike she glossed over the inspection and immediately felt the undercarriage of the bike exclaiming "broken, was new!" I looked to see what was "broken" to find hairline scratches that had obviously been there for some time. She proceeded to show me the cost would be $65 usd! I became extremely upset and said I would not pay $65 dollars, to which she asked "how much can ...

Arriving in Bangkok during Songkran

Posted by Sun0186 on 26/3/2015 at 04:01

Long time forum lurker here! I am due to spend the last night of my SE Asia trip in Bangkok on the 15th April before flying home. I am flying into don Muang airport and out of suvarnabhumi the next morning. As this is the last day of songkran it does seem a real shame to miss out on the fun, but I'm a little worried about how easy it will be to get around and how to get near enough to the action to enjoy it without getting soaked getting to the guesthouse! Happy to get wet once backpack is drop ...

Hello, I am planning to travel to Chiang Mai in 5 days and I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice about the air quality and the smog. I was reading some articles online from 13 March 2015 claiming that tourist should avoid the area because of health risks. is anyone in this region now? or does anyone have some more information about the current situation? If there are serious health issues we can change our plans and visit the North of Thailand in the end of April but we would p ...

I'm arriving in bangkok april 12th too june 1st. 7 weeks. My plan was to head to khao san road from the airport. Me and my friend are both coming to Thailand mainly too party, not every night.

Places Ive been interested in are phuket, koh phi phi and koh phangan for the full moon party. I also need to leave thailand shortly after th ...

Good quiet beach near Railay or Phuket??

Posted by LauraJ87 on 3/7/2012 at 12:31

Hi I'm planning a trip to Thailand and definately want to stay on Railay beach for a few nights, possibly going to kata beach in Phuket , but I'm struggling to find a white sand/clear water clean beach that is very quiet (couple of sunloungers tops) around these areas and nearby islands, that doesn't take ages and lots of hassle to get to. So far I've read about Ko Lipe and Ko Adang which seem to take 6 hours to get to from Railay, and Ko Racha which I dont think is as quiet as I'd like. Id ...

Hi travelforum peeps! I want some practical advice on my planned itinerary. Planning to fly to Chiang Mai from BKK and i am wondering what the best way is to travel to Koh Chang from CM.

Travelling with Children

Posted by saljones2012 on 25/2/2015 at 00:59

Hi everyone, We are hoping to visit Thailand later on this year with our two young children. We've been to other places in SE Asia, but without the kids. We thought that Thailand would be the best place to start introducing them to Asia. Fingers crossed! I was wondering a few things: 1. Can anyone recommend any trekking companies in the north that specialise in light trips with kids? We don't mind if it's Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai. 2. Is taking kids on night trains a completely ridiculous ...

stray dog licked me on koh phagnan. do I need a rabies injection?

Posted by dangerzone15 on 1/3/2015 at 23:38

So a stray dog just randomly licked my leg on koh phagnan and I'm wondering should I get an injection for this? I washed the area within 5 minutes with 2 alcohol wipes but what concerns me is that I have a mosquito bite right at the area where the dog licked. It is a fresh mosquito bite as in it was bleeding a small bit when I rubbed against it with the alcohol wipes. What should I do? And can I even get this injection on koh phagnan? ...
