Can I exchange $20 USD in Bangkok?

Posted by owsleybeck on 15/5/2007 at 14:12

I know that far from the city Exchange places only take new $100 USD bills. But I have some American 20's that I would like to get rid of first before I start using my hundreds. Is it possible to change these or will I be out of luck? ...

Railay Beach, Krabe...Are you kidding?

Posted by abh1128 on 16/5/2007 at 16:09

I'm toward the end of my 3 month journey in Southeast Asia and wanted to finish the trip in Southern Thailand, along the beautiful Andaman even though it's the beginning of rainy season, I decided to journey to Railay Beach (Krabe region), highly recommended by Travelfish, get a better guest house, and chill for the remaining weeks. As soon as I got off the long tail boat, I should have listened to my gut instinct and got right back on. I didn't like what I saw or smelled. It was ...

Toys in Bangkok

Posted by canucksinasia on 14/5/2007 at 09:14

We're returning to Bangkok for a few days before flying back to Canada and I'm wondering if anyone would have any idea where I can buy cool toys for my little brothers. They're both really into Manga and Japanimation and all things associated therewith. I've seen some toys in the little stalls at MBK, but am sure that there must be something more impressive out there, and geared for slightly older kids, (or adult nerds ;)... Thanks! ...

Where NOT to eat in Thailand

Posted by escape123 on 10/5/2007 at 21:58

Just got back from Chaweng. Had dinner at Three Fat Greeks. All I can say is don't eat here. The meat was one large piece of fat. Seriously. Not a morsel of actual meat was on the bone. I had to send it back. Didn't bother to try my chances a second time and assumed they would remove it from the bill. They did not until I asked them to. To top it off, I forgot my phone there and when I went back (within 1 minute) they claimed it wasn't there. (It was sitting on the table next to me the whole tim ...

uncrowded beaches on Ko Phi Phi

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

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 ...
