Paradise in Southern Thailand

Posted by merrylg on 12/2/2007 at 01:59

The location is very quiet and secluded aside ...

Don Muang to reopen

Posted by somtam2000 on 30/1/2007 at 05:04

No word on intra-airport transfers — we assume they'll be some form of bus service. Some domestic flights will continue to fly from Suvannabhumi -- particularly THAI flights to Phuket and Chiang Mai. ...
