Best Day Trips from Mai Khao

Posted by erobertshaw on 24/4/2006 at 19:48

Hi there, Three of my friends and I are staying in a hotel in the Mai Khao section of Phuket for a week in August and I was wondering what some great day trips would be? I love kayaking and snorkelling and my sister loves diving...any island area we shoukld hit? Any out of the ordinary day trips inland? It's my first time there and I'd like to feel all aspects of the culture during my time in that area. Thanks! ...

Hi, I just barely joined this site and its amazing so far! My girlfriend and I are planning on taking a trip to Thailand through Vietnam and my question doesn't really concern traveling, but i dont know where else to ask so if this is offtopic, i apologize. I have a pretty good sized tattoo of Ganesha on my forearm (visible in other words) and I was wondering how the cultures felt about religious figures being tattooed on people.

Budget Help Please!!! (2 months)

Posted by killerwhaletank on 13/4/2006 at 01:38

Hey folks, I have been lurking in the shadows of this site for a few weeks now, doing as much reasearch as I can on Thailand, and the backpacker's scene there. I'm planning a trip to Thailand this August. My goal is to stay 2 or 3 months, or as long as my budget will let me stay. From reading this site, it sounds like my budget wont quite cut it. I will have about 70,000 baht ($2000 US) as a budget for the entire trip. My goal, as most other backpackers, is to live on the beache ...

1. Which airline is the cheapest to get from Bangkok to Koh Samui? 2. Are there regular long boats to Haad Rin or Haad Yuan from Koh Samui? 3.

Site Updates

Posted by scudder3 on 12/4/2006 at 03:00

Hello, I am a frequent visitor (first time poster) on this site and I think it is wonderful. Quick question/suggestion. I noticed in a previous post Sontam2000 said "Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao and Ko Samui are being fully updated through May this year." Is there a section on this site such as "What's New"? Since I have explored most of the site, I find it difficult to discover what has been recently added, updated, etc. This may also be relevant for the Gibbon Experience article you are plan ...

Hello! I will be travelling in Thailand in January 2007 and was wondering if I could get some advice regarding where to go and how organised I should be. It's my first time travelling independently and I'm a bit of an organised freak. I've read a lot of the suggestions in this forum and found it quite helpful, though there are so many things I'd like to find out! Here are my questions: 1) most people have suggested to me to not book hotels in advance so as to be flexible re: length of sta ...

Where to stay...

Posted by travelsalone on 27/3/2006 at 20:23

Goal: Pre-arrange a place to stay in BKK the first night or two (arriving late) so as to get a visa for Vietnam...maybe apply then leave BKK a couple days, return for the visa...who knows! Question: Are there recommendations for places from people with first hand knowledge of them? I read and search and look at tons of places, but find it better to hear from someone who knows. A place that is not too expensive, but clean and safe would be nice, and preferably not predominantly a tourist or part ...
