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. H ...

Language issues

Posted by erinj on 19/11/2007 at 08:27

Last question: My travel agent said I won't need to know any Thai and I won't even need a phrase book. I haven't had enough time to try to learn Thai but I would at least like to *try*, at least the simple things like yes, no, please, thank you etc, so I will certainly be getting a phrase book. But, is language really not an issue? Will I be fine? Or should I crash study some Thai? Thanks :) ...

Heading from Cambodia to Thailand for beach time

Posted by mmyster on 9/12/2007 at 01:51

Hello there, My husband and I are planning a busy trip through Vietnam (2 weeks or so) and then about 4 days in Cambodia to see PP and SR. We would like to end our holiday with some relaxing beach time in Thailand. We are not sure if we should head to Koh Chang as we can access it overaland...or, if it is actually easier for us to fly out of SR to Bangkok and then on to whichever island we choose. Any suggestions? Roughly how long will it take to travel from SR to Koh Chang? We only have 5 ...

Hi all. Just wondering how fellow travellers staying in basic guesthouses (not near the beach, eg bangkok, chiang mai etc) cool down? I've never really backpacked before. Stayed in a resort in bali, and when we went out for dinner some restaurants/bars had a public swimming pool for use. ...

Malaria tablets - Thailand and Cambodia

Posted by erinj on 19/11/2007 at 08:24

Destinations= Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Ao Nang, Phnom Penh, Angkor Wat/Siem Reap OKay My doctor said malaria tabs were not necessary, I insisted as we're going to stay on an Elephant Reserve near Chiang Mai and I don't want to take any chances. He said to start taking them 2 days before, and 1 week after returning. My partners doctor gave him malaria tabs and told him he will *definitely* need them in Cambodia and to continue taking them one month after returning. So.... who is right? ...

Krabi: recommendations

Posted by sopherie on 13/12/2007 at 22:47

Hi there, I just arrived in Krabi and am a bit overwhelmed by what to do and whether I should stay here or in another location (want to see some of the national parks, but also island hopping, kayaking, snorkelling, climbing and general beach laziness...) It seems very quiet and as i'm on my own would be great to be somewhere where I can meet other travellers, but not so much into meeting mad drunken ones (so i guess Phuket is out...?) also, accomodation here is great value and wondering i ...
