Trouble Choosing an Island!

Posted by JamieB on 17/1/2008 at 04:00

I have been reading the descriptions for each of the Thai Islands and I still can't figure out which island/s are the best to visit! This will be my first time to Thailand and I have only heard about Phuket, but I have been turned off by the number of negative comments made on the blogs. I am young and looking to meet other travelers but also want a real taste of the culture and the Thai people. Does anyone have suggestions as to what their favorite islands are? I will traveling in early Apri ...

Mae Sai: sights, cafes or good restaurants?

Posted by myrhmaid on 27/1/2008 at 16:31

Hey there. I'm volunteer-teaching in Mae Sai, northern Thailand (the border town into Burma). The students are great, but the town is fairly charmless as far as I can tell, and since I'll be here for three months, I'd love some suggestions for any good cafes, places to eat, use the 'net, sights to see...anything really to help keep me sane. Thanks! ...

Will we make our Koh Tao ferry??

Posted by elena9 on 29/1/2008 at 18:53

Hi there, We are planning to fly from Bangkok to Koh Samui and then to catch a ferry to Koh Tao...our problem is that our flight arrives in Samui at 12:30pm and the ferry (seatran) departs at 1:30pm. Is it realistic to expect to make this ferry, or should we book the night in Koh Samui instead? We will only have 3 nights in the islands and would prefer to spend our time in one place. Thanks for any feedback... ...

where should we stay on Koh Lanta?

Posted by peregrinus on 27/1/2008 at 18:57

my friend and i are going to spend a few days on Koh Lanta around the middle of february and we’re trying to decide which beach & guesthouse to choose. for us, a good place would be neither crowded nor deserted. but it would have a relaxed vibe and there’d be: · some friendly people to mix with, around our ages (late 20s / early 30s); · occasional games on the beach during the day; · parties at night within walking distance (but just far enough away so as to allow a good night’ ...

Gulf or Andaman Sea in June?

Posted by trudat on 25/1/2008 at 04:59

My husband and I are traveling to Thailand in early June to celebrate our 5 yr anniv. We were originally planning to go the Andaman Sea (Ngai or Muk - Sivalai Resort), but are concern about the weather. Should we go to the gulf instead (Tao?)? We only have a week and are looking for something relaxing with good snorkeling and maybe some hiking, and not overly built up like Samui. We liked the idea of being able to go to other islands like Ko Rok, etc. in the Andaman. What should we do? Any th ...
