some questions about booking rooms

Posted by zarkia on 1/3/2007 at 01:54

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 ...

Koh Kood Resort and Spa, KOh Kood, Trat Province

Posted by carmen on 27/2/2007 at 11:21

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. ...

Websites to find travelmate

Posted by carlakoopman on 23/2/2007 at 13:07

Hi, I will be visiting Thailand (and maybe Laos) from 24 May till 19 June. At the moment I'm traveling alone in Australia, and that's no problem, a lot of people to meet and Australia is not much different as the life I'm used to in Holland. But I'm a bit more insecure about Thailand, and would prefer to travel with someone else. Does anyone know useful websites to find a travelmate? Or do you think I will be fine, traveling alone, because Thailand is quite Western? Kind regards, Carl ...

Hi, I"m taking the overnight train from BKK on the 17th to Trang and wondered if I should be stocking up on snacks & meals etc. One hears so many horror stories about the quality of train food (to be avoided at all costs...)

Hello there, greetings. I will be arriving in Chiang Mai late January, staying for one week. My agenda is to visit the Karens hill tribe/some small trekking activity in this trip and take it easy in Chiang Mai. I am considering going to Chiang Dao, staying at the ChiangDao Nest 1.

My question is - Since there are so many ...

Looking for a relaxing-ish holiday but we are unable to go for more than 2 weeks. Should we leave out Phi Phi and go to the islands on the East side instead? Or is 2 weeks enough. Don't want to go home feeling exhausted from cramming things in. Any advice greatly appreciated! Kaz ...

Bed Bugs

Posted by tati53 on 18/2/2007 at 15:19

I'm leaving to SE Asia in a few days and know that I will run into bed bugs somewhere along the way. Is there any way to prevent them from biting? They seem very resistant to any normal bug spray/DEET product. If I cover the hostel/guesthouse bed (mattress and sheets) in large, plastic garbage bags and sleep in my silk sleep sack will I be safer? Are the bugs able to climb the slick plastic? Yeah, I know I sound crazy, but any advice you could provide would be most appreciated. ...
