The above recommended route looks good but have many questions. We would like to get at least a couple of weeks on the islands off Thailand.

Posted by turismo949 on 3/7/2007 at 05:34

Hi all. I'm new to this forum and amazed by the resourcefulness of this website. Sort of stumped in my planning now. Part of my trip (first time to SE Asia) is a weekend in late July to Ko Tao where I plan to take beginner dive classes. I found the extensive list of dive schools on the different beaches listed here but was wondering if anyone here has any personal recommendations on which diving school has the bes ...

Mid July - what island to go to?

Posted by beckparker on 29/6/2007 at 16:44

Hello, My partner and I are taking off from a long few months in Kuala Lumpur, and are really seeking a Thai island to relax on -- not too big on the party scene ( a feeling of small town seclusion appeals), and has a little bit of nature to enjoy (snorkeling, hiking). Ko Lipe really appealed to me, but i am afraid we will be rained out in july. I see Ko Pha Ngan has been recommended for a couple going in September-- would it have decent weather in July? Thanks for any advice you can ...

Hi We have left our camera at a travel agent in Phuket Town. We were wondering if anybody was planning on coming from Phuket to Phi Phi in the next few days who could pick it up and bring it over for us.

Hi everyone: Just wondering if someone can help me with this issue. I've been reading as much as I can about how convenient it is to take TC to mainland ASIA. It seems that with an ordinary ATM card and some cash TC are a good option, what i havent found yet is what type of TC are the best to take. Is it Amex TC? I know they are the easiest to find in Mexico (where I live) but im more interested in the type that would be easier to cash in Asia and the one with fewer comissions. I'll be ...

The Sarojin, Khao Lak versus The Twinpalms, Phuket

Posted by ndecost1 on 26/6/2007 at 03:59

We are almost ready to book our two week honeymoon to Thailand. We are down to choosing between these two fairly different resorts. I would appreciate anyone's opinions on them or the area. The Sarojin looks like an amazing beach and Khao Lak seems to be a cute town. I also love the idea of visitng the Similan islands nearby. On the otherhand, the Twinpalms also seems to sit on a beautiful beach - maybe not as nice looking at the Sarojin - and it has this great new beach club on Surin ...

other islands for day/night trip from Phuket or Khao Lak

Posted by ndecost1 on 26/6/2007 at 04:13

Can you recommend island day trips for us? We are considering staying in Surin Beach in Phuket or in Khao Lak at the Sarojin. I see that everyone goes to the Phi Phi islands and the James Bond island. Are these really the best to visit? We'd like to go for a day and spend time on an amazing beach. We would consider spending the night there if we found nice accommodations for $100 USD a night. Any recs on tour & boat operators to these islands as well? Thanks. ...

Treatment of elephants at Chiang Dao

Posted by planetclare on 22/6/2007 at 01:59

Hi, Could someone who has been to the Elephant Training Center at Chiang Dao comment on how the elephants are treated there? I'm aware it's a training center with shows and rides, and not a rehab center like the Elephant Nature Park (would love to go there, but I don't think I'll have the time or money to do so), but within that framework, would you say the elephants are treated properly? Thanks! Clare ...
