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 ...

Your suggestions for what to do, where to stay? Also, what's a good way of getting there from the airport----one not too expensive? Taxi, bus? Thanks. ...

Getting to Koh Lipe

Posted by dlewingt on 3/1/2008 at 03:50

My wife and I are planning a trip to Thailand in Feb/08. We plan to visit Koh Lipe and have heard there is a travel advisory for the southern provinces and Hat Yai. Is it as dangerous as the advisory suggests? We were planning to fly into Hat Yai from Bangkok and then take a minibus to Pak Bara.

Lamai, Koh Samui

Posted by gogirlgo on 10/1/2008 at 21:53

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 ...

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!) ...
