Chaing Mai to Luang Prabang to Siem Reap Travel Suggestions?

Posted by jenwhalensf on 19/4/2007 at 08:05

Hi All! Leaving San Francisco in a few days, bound for my first trip to SE Asia! Looking for advice on how I should travel from Chaing Mai to Luang Prabang and then on to Siem Reap?

Also, is it our best bet to fly from CM to LP? We don't have enough time for the 2 day long-boat trip, unfortunately. ...

Warnings on Travel to Thailand from the Australian Government

Posted by somtam2000 on 11/4/2007 at 04:39

The Australian Govt has warned about the possibility of bombings in Thailand to coincide with the Songkran holiday period. You can read the full report here. We view these warnings as being pretty conservative in nature, but travellers to Thailand should try to keep informed of any developments -- Thai TV and newspapers are a pretty good start. The vast majority of the problems are restricted to the far southern provinces of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat -- none of which are "key" tourist d ...

An alternative place to stay near to Klong Muang Beach (near Krabi)

Friends of ours are going to be in a flash hotel in Klong Muang Beach - it doesn't look that great there and the accommodation is very expensive. Can anyone recommend anywhere nearish that we can stay, but with good transport connection so we can still meet up.
