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 ...

Posted by nivag7 on 18/7/2007 at 16:17

Hi Everyone, I'm going to be in Thailand in the next few weeks with a couple of friends and I need some advice on a few details. How long would it be worth staying in Koh Phi Phi for in August? We were thinking of a week but will the weather be too severe to stay for that long? Also, what is the best way of getting from Chiang Mai to Vang Vieng? Is the only way to get there through Luang Prabang or are there any direct options? We have approx. 2 weeks to take in Chiang Mai, Laos and fi ...

Diving KO TAO in November

Posted by happytrooper on 5/7/2007 at 14:59

Hi Everyone I'm planning a diving vacation in Thailand in november. As far as I have understood the Andaman sea is the best place for diving at that time of year. However what I've read about KO TAO it seems like a great diving location and I was wondering if anybody has any experience or advice in that regard? Should we stick to the Andaman sea (simillion/phuket and Ko Lipe) or is Ko Tao good as well? Hoping for some advice form seasoned Thailand divers! Blue skies! ...

Hua Hin questions

Posted by hotwings on 6/7/2007 at 03:49

Hi everyone, I'm going to Thailand in August and I'm wondering if Hua Hin is too touristy? I noticed somtam wrote that Hua Hin is now more touristy and prices have gone up. Is it still worth a visit? What about Khao Takiab? I read it's suppose to be 15mins away from Hua Hin and more quiet with a nicer beach. I'm looking for a beach close to Bangkok so if there are any other suggestions please let me know. I would be glad to hear it. Also, is there a train that goes directly from C ...

My partner and I are planning a trip to one of the Thai islands in October. With us will be our daughter who will be just 10 months old at the time. We recently made a disappointing trip to Langkawi - the beaches were gritty/pebbly, the sea was grey and full of tiny stinging jellyfish (but no other snorkelling as the visibility was so poor!)- and we are really keen to do better this time! Top on our holiday list of must haves is a fantastic beach - and for us that is soft clean (white?) s ...
