Charliehousepinklao in Bangkok

Posted by dutchtravelfam on 9/3/2007 at 15:57

We are a family with 3 young children travelling through SE Asia for 4 months. I have been looking at booking Charlie House Pin Klao in Bangkok for a few nights; it looks really nice. It's been open for just a year now and can not find anything about it on Travelfish. Does anyone know it? The rooms are heavily discounted right now, should I be suspicious? ...

getting rooms in Phuket

Posted by tharani on 10/3/2007 at 15:23

My friend and I are headed for Phuket from the 15th to the 19th of March, and we do not have a room booked. We are budget to mid- range travelers (1000 to 1500BHT/night) and are hoping for a nice beach holiday with a lot of shopping, food and some nightlife. But as we are both girls, safety is a concern. Is Patong beach a good place to start, or should we head for someplace more quiet but also with some life like Kata. Advice please. Thanks ...

Koh Chang Budget Accommodation

Posted by michaelnewman on 10/3/2007 at 08:13

Not looking for 4 star but something that is self contained ie cabin / lodge style and preferably in the range of 1000 to 1500 bht per night. So key things are not ...

hello everyone. i have a kind of wierd question. i know that a singe room has one bed and a double room has a double bed (or a twin has 2 beds) but what confuses me is the pricing. my sister and i are travelling around thailand, malaysia and singapore in may / june and we'll be booking double / twin rooms, but does that mean that we both pay the quoted price, or is the price just for the room (so we both pay half?) also - is it worth-while pre-booking rooms / huts in the low season, or are ...

We took a five days 4 nights package to Koh Kood. It was organized by the Siam Beach Resort on Lonely Beach in Koh Chang. All our meals and excursions were included. Upon arrival we were met by an extremely friendly owner of this resort. He has many wooden bungalows situated on the beautiful beach. There are mosquito nets although we didn't neet them, and an attached outdoors bathroom with a western toilette, and a cold shower. We had a front beach bungalow with a great view of sunsets. ...
