Nakhon Ratchasima (Khorat) bus station, buses to Phimai and Nang Rong

Posted by lucasan on 18/1/2017 at 23:49

We found the bus station in Khorat (Nakhon Ratchasima) somewhat confusing. Infact finding the platforms where buses to Phimai or to Nang Rong (Phanom Rung) leave can be hard because routes are written only in Thai... and no one spoke any english. To help other travelers the bus stop nr 12 is going to Nong Rang, departures every hour from 6 AM, after 12 noon buses are not so frequent. Trip takes about 2 hours and tickets (70 Baht) are sold before boarding from the man near the colum ...

Some guides are absent or messed up

Posted by Sknew on 17/1/2017 at 04:49

Hi guys. The main Kampaeng Phet guide (as opposed to the free one) seems to have a broken link. I downloaded the free version. Also, I don't see downloadable guides for Bangkok or Chiang Mai. I'm using an Android phone to browse, so it's possible that this plays a role in my problems... ...

Posted by adanma92 on 13/1/2017 at 12:20

Hi, my boyfriend and I (in our mid-twenties) will be going to Thailand in April for the first time, for 2 weeks. We are spending 3 days in Bangkok and want to spend the rest of the holiday relaxing and exploring one of the Islands. I was going to do Phuket but have read so many discouraging things about it online. Should we fly to Krabi instead or the Phi Phi Islands? I'm having a really hard time deciding, any help or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks! ...

Family Accommodation in Kanchanaburi

Posted by goodmclean on 13/12/2016 at 03:44

First time users of the forum. We are a family of 5 (kids 9, 7, 5) looking for family friendly accommodation in Kanchanaburi around the beginning/middle of March 2017. We are travelling in the backpacker/flashpacker range, but are hoping to get accommodation with a swimming pool and be in a great location as we are keen to walk most places. We don't mind the backpacker scene, but we don't want to be next to a pub with music blaring until 2am! Does anyone have any good suggestions? ...

Diving Schools for Young Teens

Posted by BaliThai on 28/12/2016 at 17:35

I am traveling to Koh Tao in June, 2017 with my two daughters who will be 12 and 15 at that time. We are looking into getting our PADI open water certifications while in Koh Tao, and we hoped someone had good recommendations (preferably based on personal experience) for dive schools that are particularly good with young teens. We've looked at the articles on TravelFish related to diving on Koh Tao, and we'd also love hearing from people's experiences, good, bad, otherwise with the various dive ...

Hi, Just wondering if i would get a better conversion rate changing money in the UK before I arrive in Thailand or after I arrive?

How does this itinerary sound?

I'll be back in Thailand this February. I am mainly interested in art and architecture, and this will be my third trip. So, my itinerary is a bit unconventional. Arrive Sunday in Bangkok, stay Sunday and Monday, Monday devoted to a day trip to Ayuttaya. Tuesday bus to Kampaeng Phet, staying two nights. Thursday bus to Sukhothai, staying for two nights. Both days to be used for Si Satchanalai. Saturday bus to Lampang , for two nights. On day two I'll probably do a day trip to Chiang Mai for ...

How much pre-booking do I need to do for a March trip?

Posted by NamManao on 25/12/2016 at 15:35

Hi all, I'm no newbie as I've been to Thailand four times, but I haven't been there since 2003. I'm looking at going in March 2017, but am wondering whether I can still "wing it" on the accommodations and domestic flights the way I have always done there in the past. That is to say, not pre-booking any hotel rooms (or flights, or anything else from the US before leaving) and just waiting until I'm there to survey the situation and choose suitable things from what's available. I've nev ...
