10 days in Thailand with my dad!

Posted by atousa on 5/11/2007 at 19:25

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! ...

Best bang for our buck

Posted by dlewingt on 25/10/2007 at 07:26

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. ...

I read a brilliant post by a user in another thread that gave some really good travel tips for thailand, that answered a lot of questions i had in mind when joining the forum but one final question i had was with regards to travel insurance. I had a look on which is as the name suggests the travel insurance section of a uk website (as I'm a uk resident :O) ) I've looked through some of the policies and been to see my local travel agent for some ...

Discovery Airpass

Posted by sopherie on 31/10/2007 at 21:20

I've been looking at the Discovery Airpass through Bangkok Airways and think its a reasonable deal since i'm wanting to do a lot in a reasonably limited timeframe. However, you can't book online...and even doing a search on the net I can't find travel agencies who sell the vouchers...i'm living in Brussels so that complicates it even more. Does anyone know how I go about finding a travel agency that sells the pass (would like to avoid having to phone 50 travel companies in order to find one that ...

Just read in a guidebook it might be (even more) busy on Kho Phi Phi from december 1st till december 5th due to the King's Cup Regatta. Only found on the internet that the Phuket King's Cup Regatta will be from december 1st till december 8th. Searched also on the TT forum but there seems not be any info about it. Will the regatta be around Phi Phi on the days mentioned and will it affect the availability and prices of accomodation? Anyone knows around which places the regatta will be and it a ...

Ko Similan bungalow bookings

Posted by McCaskell on 30/10/2007 at 11:52

I booked a bungalow for early December on Ko Similan through the national parks office website. I am in Canada and I followed their instructions for wiring money to their account at Krung Thai bank; however, after two weeks they still claim that the money hasn't arrived and have not confirmed the booking. I don't speak Thai and their attendants on the phone don't speak much English. Bookings are supposed to expire in two days after a reservation is done if payment isn't made, and at least they k ...
