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 ...

Hi, I'm travelling to Thailand in December with my 14 year old daughter for 4 weeks ... we're both really looking forward to having this trip together!

Koh Chang - HELP!

Posted by slave2dafunk on 9/8/2006 at 23:00

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!!! ...

Ko Yao Noi and Ko Yao Yai, the Thai islands you've been looking for

Posted by somtam2000 on 9/8/2006 at 21:02

When our researcher handed in his notes for Ko Yao Noi and Ko Yao Yai one of the first things he said was "You've got to tell people to go there -- it's incredible -- the highlight of this trip..." So, if you're interested in a couple of great islands, you may want to check out our new feature story on Ko Yao Noi and Ko Yao Yai... there's lots of places to stay, they're easy to reach (from Phuket, Krabi and Phang Nga) and most travellers have never heard of them...

Thanks, and an odd bit of advice.

Posted by tokyobelle on 7/8/2006 at 23:42

Hi everyone! Just got back a few days ago and thought I would take a break from editing and captioning my photos to thank everyone for the very helpful information that I received here. I'm trying to go back and add any helpful information to previous topics now. But, if you're a woman who happens to be-for lack of a better term- top heavy, you may want to consider dressing even more conservatively. I was never what you could call scantily dressed, but was usually in a plain old gap t-shir ...

Buying a mosquito net

Posted by ComingtoThailand on 3/8/2006 at 11:24

We are going to Thailand in a week and have never bought a mosquito net before. Can we get one at any camping store (like REI)? If so, what exactly do they look like? (Sorry if that's a stupid question). We looked online and are unsure of what exactly we should be looking for. Is it something that covers over the entire bed, or just that covers over our body? Finally, approximately what cost should we expect to pay in the U.S.? Thanks to all of you in advance for your help. ...
