phuket or koh samui?

Posted by desigurl82 on 4/5/2007 at 11:25

I am planning on traveling with a friend to either one of these two islands for 3 days, but i'm having trouble deciding which island to go to. I'm going at the end of august and so I'm concerned about weather and wanted to know which one would be better in that regard. I also was wondering which one has better beaches or if they are comparable. We're looking for a place with nice beaches and snorkling and with some good restaurants and bars around. Also, lastly, which beaches in phuket and k ...

uncrowded beaches on Ko Phi Phi

Posted by owsleybeck on 1/5/2007 at 19:57

I will be traveling with friends to Ko Phi Phi on the 17th of May and though I have been to Thailand before I have really no knowledge of Ko Phi Phi. I am looking for an affordable and secluded beach where we can stay. We won't be needing a flashy hotel but a clean pleasent bungalow on a beach not so cluttered with the masses is what we are looking for. I did some reading and it says that these more secluded places can be found on the inside of the island. If anyone has any suggestions or great ...

Koh Chang - A paradise Lost

Posted by khunwilko on 19/3/2007 at 16:16

Koh Chang - A Paradise Lost… I read an article entitled “Fantasy Island” by Lloyd Sullivan in the Bangkok post’s dated Thursday 10th August 2006, and was prompted to make a few observations……… It is unfortunate that many travelers to Thailand are rather uncritical about their environment and the effect tourism is having on the islands of the Kingdom. Koh Chang is a terrible example of unregulated tourist development gone mad. I first went to Koh Chang in 2003 and was rath ...

Can anyone advise of accomodation near the Nong Phai district of Ubon R? We are visiting my son who lives ther and he tells me that the only hotel he can think of anywhere near is the Nevada or Sunee Tower neither of which I can find reveiws for! Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am travelling with my 74yr old mother so a degree of comfort is pretty essential. Understand that from the centre of Ubon to this district we would need a songtheow and a motorbike taxi, so central is not a good o ...

Which Thai Island?

Posted by dave07 on 2/3/2007 at 20:09

Hi there, I am planning on travelling to Thailand mid-May for a week or so on my own. My main goal is to spend the time relaxing on an island beach (or inside a bungalow if it is raining!) rather than 'sight see', but I am at a loss as to which island to choose? Ideally, id prefer one that wasn't merely a cove for loved-up couples, or one that is too wild and loud - something in between would be perfect! Its not a huge issue, but just to check - I appreciate that May is the start of t ...

Great guest house in Sukhothai

Posted by Piombino on 27/4/2007 at 13:45

This little gem has to rate as one of the best value B&B's in Thailand. Meao and Malcolm have created a lovely retreat that is less than a 10 minute drive from Old Sukhothai. The location is quiet; a small slice of rural Thailand. The rooms are basic but immaculate, air-conditioned, the pool well maintained, and the hosts incredibly accommodating. We were very happy to find a good sized refrigerator in the room. Breakfast can be brought to the B&B or taken on the terrace of their restaurant in d ...

Bangkok/Ko Chang Questions (10 day trip)

Hi, I'm new to travelfish- We're flying into BKK Suvarnabhumi late at night, and want to leave early the next morning for the east coast.
