Hi, I posted this message under another topic by accident yesterday, but I really hope someone can help with this. I'm flying into Phuket at 1pm on the 31st of October and want to make my way straight to Ko Lanta to get to Ko Rok.

Bangkok to Surat Thani - key things to see along the way?

Posted by stephwigz on 9/8/2006 at 19:57

Hi there, I'm a pretty inexperienced traveller and haven't really done a lot that hasn't been with tours, etc. I am planning a trip to Thailand starting November 30th this year. I will be there for a month, and I've been having some initial confusion over routes to take. I am flying in to Bangkok and plan to spend a couple of days there first. The north doesn't really interest me hugely (at this stage anyway) and was wanting to do more of an island hopping thing. I'm pretty flexible as to whe ...

My bro and I are planning a trip to Koh Chang (we think!) for the first week of October. We've both been to other beaches/islands around Thailand and are trying to go somewhere new. Any advice about places to stay in Koh Chang. A lot of the accomodation I'm looking at is way out of my price range (I work in Thailand...). Basically looking for something decent but cheap. Also what about snorkelling on Koh Chang? Any advice would be more than welcome. Thanks!!! ...
