Hello All! This is my first time traveling to Thailand and I am currently planning a one month vacation there.

Finally what would be the best way to go fro ...

Quite a few changes, new route.

Posted by BuzzmFrog84 on 14/2/2015 at 13:51

I'm going to be spending my first 3-4 nights in Bangkok. The only other destinations I have in mind right now are Ayutthaya, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai (I'm hearing mixed reviews for the time I'll be here, April-May, but I at least want to check it out) and some sort of beach/island destination after that. I've cut most of the Isan plans out of my trip. Not that I don't want to see them, but the more time I put into research and the closer I come to the date, the more I think this is practical for ...

Hi! So I have 16 days to try to get in enough, but not too much. Those counting the days that I arrive and leave. I arrive at 2pm, so most of that day is gone. But I leave well after midnight on the last day. 3am to be exact. So I have that whole day as long as I'm within access to the airport by the evening. I'm not planning on doing anything uncommon as it's my first time there. So just sticking to the well followed paths as boring as that may be. Two places I am going is Phi Phi and ...

A very quiet Thai island?

Posted by quaton on 11/1/2015 at 21:57

Hi all, Hope all you backpackers out there can help.......I'm hoping to find and "retreat" for 10 days to any island in Thailand that is traditionally simplistic and quiet. In other words, no or minimal tv, internet, simple bungalows with simple restaurant which is family run. Very simple, very basic with time to reflect. Cheers, Phil Perth - Western Australia ...

Thai Etiquette.

Posted by BuzzmFrog84 on 10/2/2015 at 21:32

I should have started looking at this much earlier. I've been looking at several different guides...blogs, youtube posts etc...to get an idea on greetings and such. I'm starting to get the basics of the wai greeting but I'd hate to offend someone and give the wrong one. I've also seen that you should bow and in some cases walk on your knees when it comes to passing the elderly. Now, I don't expect a walk-through on all of the etiquette I should know but any links or info would be incredibly ap ...

Food Poisoning in Thailand

Posted by altmtl on 6/2/2015 at 07:31

I've been to SE Asia many a time and have been proud to say I never got sick... but I guess there's always a first time. I eat pretty much about anything and always take ice cubes... and I never worry. The other night in Phang-Nga I had a simple noodle soup with pork and a beer... the next morning I was feeling a bit under the weather but the real symptoms started in the late afternoon, luck should have it that I was in my room (with my own bathroom) - vomiting, the runs and cramps - couldn't ...
