Hello, I have been told it is necessary to book the train to Chiang Mai in advance as I'm travelling in December. How do I do this? Can I do it online? I have found one website, however it charges ~300USD, when according to http://www.railway.co.th/English/Time_PDF.asp it should only cost about 70 Aussie dollars. Any ideas? ...

Thai Visas (UK traveller re-entering after 30 days)

Posted by Spaully on 29/7/2007 at 17:17

We (both UK passport holders) flew into Bangkok on the 5th July, spent 3 days there then have been/will be in Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos until about the 12th August when we plan to re-enter at the Huay Xai border crossing (Laos-Thailand). After that we fly out on the 15th. It is unclear from the information on the Thai website whether we need to get a tourist or transit visa for our re-entry, as it lies outside the normal free 30 days. Does anyone have experience of such a situation? I ...

Tranport in Southern Thailand

Posted by psychiq on 12/7/2007 at 11:04

I'm just wondering if the transport is quite accesible in Southern Thailand. In particularly, I want to fly into Phuket, travel to Khao Sok National Park for a couple days then travel onto Koh Phangan for the New Years Full moon party. Is this do-able? Would it be easier to fly into Bangkok instead? The reason why I wanted to fly into Phuket is because I would like to spend some more time there after Koh Phangan. If all of this is going to take too long, would maybe the best solution be to ...
