Posted by kman on 11/11/2007 at 10:28

Hi, I'm hoping to do some diving while in Thailand and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for the 'best' places. I've read that depending on the time of the year divers can see mantas and potentially whale-sharks. Thanks! ...

Visa

Posted by Louise73 on 19/11/2007 at 18:38

I plan to be in Thailand for longer than 30 days. Will I have problems getting the 30 day visa if my return ticket says longer 30 days stay and I have no other ticket showing further travel? Is there any way I can apply for a extension before I travel? If not is it easy to cross a border and cross back the same day in order to get a new 30 day visa? Thanks ...

south Lanta or Ngai?

Posted by shoreliner on 20/11/2007 at 20:36

Have only 8 short nights in Thailand to fit in one andaman island and khao sok national park (greedy, I know, but…). After checking things out a little my thought for the island where either a south lanta beach (mai pai or khlong jaak) or koh nagi or maybe even koh kradan. The only “problem” is the distance between khao sok and any of these islands. I wouldn’t want to “waste” a whole precious day on the road between them and to sleep in krabi or trang town. Lanta seems slightly clo ...

Pay accomodation in full in advance

Posted by licasi on 19/11/2007 at 19:31

I have booked one night at the Jungle rafts in Kanchanaburi. I think it looks like such an experience and wanted to book directly through their own web site. I'm supposed to transfer money (100%) to their account, since they don't do credit cards, and I have never been asked to do this before.. Is this ok ?? I'm planning our first trip ever to Thailand and it sure is a different experience.. ...

Koh Phi Phi quality bungalows??

Posted by timmc on 15/11/2007 at 02:14

I'm struggling to find a good quality bungalow on Phi Phi - the reviews suggest both love and hate for some of the cheaper options, whilst the costlier hotels are too expensive and not what I'm looking for. A good quality place a little away from the nightlife. ...

Lampang Elephant Conservation Centre

Does anyone know how long it takes to get from Chiang Mai to Lampang Elephant Centre - also is this easy to do? I'm trying to decide whether to stay in Lampang or Chiang Mai for the night. Im travelling with someone completely uninterested in elephants, so was thinking that Chiang Mai might be more interesting for her for the day, while I head off to this centre. I LOVE elephants, but cant afford a mahoot course, so thought visiting this centre would be the next best thing. I've also read about ...

Dress code in Thailand/Cambodia temples/public places

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

I'm going to Thailand (Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Ao Nang) and Cambodia (Phnom Penh and Siem Reap/Angkor Wat). I was planning on packing a couple of 3/4 pants and a couple of pairs of shorts (relatively short- mid thigh length) to wear. Will this be okay, or will I need to pack long pants? A friend said that at the temples if you don't have long pants they will lend you tie on pants to wear. Is this right? Will wearing short offend anyone? I want to not be too hot, but would hate to offend ...
