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)

Posted by sugarplum on 24/3/2007 at 12:19

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. Currently thinking about Haad Nopphara Thara, as it looks like a cab or tuk tuk journey away. Any suggestions are welcome. Cheers, Luke ...

Hi All, Just looking for a bit of info on the Mekong river boat trip. I will be in Chiang Mai, and from there I will be looking to head North into Laos to cross the border and head south to Luang Prabang by boat. What I need to find out is the folllowing: 1) From Chiang Mai, what is the best route to head north and in to Laos in order to take a boat to Luang Prabang along the Mekong - I have heard that it is probably best to go Chiang Khong (how? and how long from Chaing Mai?) wh ...

I am in Pai at the moment and it is a wonderful place with amazing scenery but the smoke makes it feel as though my whole experience is being ruined. My next plan of action was to head into Northern Laos to do the gibbon experience and some trekking and looked forward to visiting Luang Prabang after such amazing reports.

Ko Lanta with kids

Posted by racheltanya on 2/2/2007 at 05:42

Hi, We're travelling to Thailand next winter and after spending some time in BKK with friends, we're planning to go on and stay in Ko Lanta. Can anyone recommend accomodation that would suit a family with two kids under ten and two adults who still enjoy a drink and chilled out vibe at the end of the day (that's us . . )? We've got some money to spend, but not a fortune, and wouldn't feel at home on a big resort. Any ideas gratefully received. Thanx!! Rach ...

20 things to think about before arriving in Thailand

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

Here are 50 things to think about when visiting Thailand… 1. Bring a cell phone “unblocked” and buy a Thai SIM card for it on arrival, they’re cheap (apprx. 250 baht) and include some credit already on them - e.g. - International calls to UK are about 5 - 8baht per min… 2. Money - Bring ATM and/or credit cards. - check fees and tell your bank your are going abroad. - Take Travellers cheques only as back-up. Bring very little cash – you tend to get a better rate of exchange here ...

Getting around Ko Pha Ngan and accommodation

Posted by sugarplum on 18/3/2007 at 12:43

We're still undecided about where to stay but so far most people seem to recommend Bottle Beach (but that's probably too inaccessable), Ao Plaaylaem or Thong Nai Pan Noi. How easy is it to get from these places to the Full Moon Party and to Golden Light resort now known as Holiday beach resort (kite surf school) - are taxis available at all hours? Most postings about the accommodation are quite old - so recommendations about accommodation also very welcome - a good aircon bungalow is what we're ...
