5 Weeks for a little of everything?

Posted by natesta on 12/11/2007 at 05:20

I've seen the suggested itinerary for SE Asia with 4 weeks but was wondering what the pace of that trip would be? Would we constantly be on the move? We have about 5 weeks in July/August and would like to see the "must see" things, without constantly being on the move. Would 2 weeks in Vietnam South->North 2 Weeks in Thailand, Jungles and Islands, 4 Days in Cambodia to see Ankor Wat and Phnom Phnh work out? Is there anywhere we should add more time to, or less to? We've also heard g ...

Getting to Suvarnabhumi from Hua Lamphong

Posted by pauljaymes on 8/11/2007 at 19:42

Hi, I'm getting off an overnight train next week at Hua Lamphong and I need to get to Suvarnabhumi. I should have plenty of time - 4 hours or so if the train is on time - but I'm a bit worried that I can't find any information on the buses. Incoming I took AE1 and changed to the MRT to Hua Lamphong at Silom, but I couldn't find any info for the return journey. It almost seems worth taking a taxi to Khao San Road and picking up the airport express bus there - anyone got any ideas? P ...

Pre Booking Flights, Trains, Rooms, Etc.

Posted by kman on 11/11/2007 at 10:25

Hi everyone, We're first time travelers (2ppl) to Thailand arriving Nov 18th (at 00:05) and departing December 6th. I'm wondering how necessary it is to book domestic flights, train/bus rides and accomodation ahead of time (i.e. book them now before we arrive). We normally like to 'play it by ear' however I've read a lot about it being the high-season and am getting a little nervous. Will we be ok or will be be sleeping on the streets and stuck in one place with no transportation? :) Th ...

Ayuthaya - storage for bags?

Posted by rocketgirl on 8/11/2007 at 09:08

I'm currently in Kanchanaburi and want to head north towards Chiang Mai. I was thinking of travelling via Ayuthaya as I love old temples and architecture. My friend is not that interested in these things, so was just planning on having an afternoon there. how feasible is this? Is there anywhere we could store our bags for the afternoon, while we wait for the night train or would we need to book a guesthouse for the night. Also can you see much of the sights in just an afternoon? Lastly how ea ...

Visa Run in Ranong

Posted by Harry05 on 8/11/2007 at 03:39

Saw quite a few topics about visa runs in Ranong, but not about this concrete question. Will enter Thailand from the south (Phuket), travel around and then head up north. Maybe after 12-13 days I will be in Ranong where I wanna do a visa run so I can take my time travelling in northern direction till Laos (maybe totally I will stay max. 35-40 days in Thailand). Do you have to be a certain amount of days in Thailand before getting a new permit for 30 days? If yes, what's the minimum? ...

Travel into southern Thailand

Posted by marbob on 6/11/2007 at 19:47

Hi, we are planning to travel by train from Malaysia into Thailand around mid January. The British government have a travel warning out for the southern provinces, saying that one shouldn't travel through them, even by train as there have been numerous attempts to sabotage the lines and more and more frequent terrorist attacks. Is it really like this or should this be taken with a pinch of salt? We were considering the Jungle line up the east of Malaysia? ...

Hi everyone. I'll be in Thailand from November 7th to the 17th. I'll be traveling with my dad. He's 57, healthy, pretty adventurous, but hasn't traveled in years and likes nice hotels and good food. He's on an around the world trip right now, and doesn't have a budget. So no cheap hostels, crowded city buses, or street food for him. He's depending on me to set the itinerary for the trip. My plan was to hang out in Bangkok from November 8th to maybe the 12th, and then fly off somewhere ...

Koh Lanta - Anda Lanta or Sea House?

Posted by stilli on 3/11/2007 at 11:29

Would welcome any feedback on the Anda Lanta Resort and Lanta Sea House Bungalows. We are a family including a three year old and "grandpa" (well travelled and somewhat easy going). Looking for a nice bungalow, sandy beach and good for swimming. A couple of nice places to eat within walking distance would be nice too. The above mentioned places have availability for the first week of Jan which is what we need - not much else to choose from it seems. Appreciate input! ...

We are from Canada and are planning a trip to Thailand in Feb/08. My wife read that it is best to take US traveler cheques. I'm wandering if it wouldn't be better to just take Canadian traveler cheques and then exchange them at a Bank for Bahts. Do you forsee any problem? I know American is more widely accepted internationally but the way the US dollar is falling I think I might get a better rate on CAD. ...
