Electronics / ipod

Posted by ValenciaPilgrim on 5/1/2007 at 20:43

I am really clueless about the whole power / voltage issue! the FAQ said "bring a universal adaptor" because the plugs in Thailand are not standardized. Do I need to use a UA if the plug has three prongs and my appliance only has 2? What do I do if I have an appliance that doesn't go up to 220V? Also, getting very specific, how does everyone charge their ipods in Thailand? Do you have to bum a charge off someone with a laptop, or do you have an AC adaptor that works in Thailand? If so, ...

We're marrying in April, and are now planning our honeymoon - to be approx 3 wks, starting from about 21st April. I know about the New Year celebrations and will book as soon as we have decided where... which is where you wonderful guys come in. We are debating a package vs DIY travel.... flights from UK no problem, but I'm wondering about the internal travel, and how easy it is to organise it all. Our idea is: Bangkok - maybe 4 nights ( I think from reading thru messages is enough) Chiang ...

Clothing for females

Posted by ValenciaPilgrim on 4/1/2007 at 11:38

Hello! I would like some detailed info about clothing, please. I am planning a one week trip, and I don't want to carry much with me! I plan to visit many temples in Bangkok, and I don't want to offend. Are tank tops inappropriate? How about shirts with just a hint of a sleeve (I think it's called a cap sleeve)? How about long (almost to the knee or just past) shorts on women? Also, how long do skirts have to be to be appropriate for temples and / or other tourism? Finally - shoes. I ...

Andaman Snorkeling away from Phi Phi/Phuket?

Posted by MichelleMood on 2/1/2007 at 13:27

I am having the damnedest time getting information on snorkeling in the Andaman Sea away from the biggest tourist areas (Phuket; Phi Phi). I really really need islands that have snorkeling right on the beaches NOT JUST snokeling via boat trips. Is it TRUE that Racha Yai and Ko Yao Yai and Lanta Yai have off-shore snorkeling that we can just swim to from the beach? This is crucial since it's the only easy way to snorkel while caring for our kids -- one parent takes off and snorkels for 30-60 m ...

Thung Yi Beach

Posted by davidwise on 4/1/2007 at 04:30

Hi, I've read/heard that Thung Yi Beach, just south of Khanom/north of Nakhon Si, is quite special for a spot of peaceful camping. Does anybody have advice on getting there, and also, do i need a tent (i'd rather not use one but maybe i'll need one because of weather/mossies/people?)? I'm going to be there in mid March. Also, has anybody been there recently? I've only heard reports from a few years ago. If theres any other places in the vicinity worth a look, I'd appreciate knowing about them. T ...

We are travelling in Thailand early Jan 2007. We will have about 5-6 nights around BKK visiting friends, but we would like to go somewhere we haven't been yet that is an easy trip (3-4hrs) from Bkk. We have been to Kanchnaburi and Ayuttaya many times, and to Ko Samet a lot. We want something different to a beach trip (we will have been to Krabi already). Maybe cool temples.
