Accomodation over Christmas and New Year

Posted by Red on 13/6/2006 at 12:49

My husband and I will be flying into BKK on the 27 December, we have only booked the first 2 nights accomodation, we aren't sure where we will be after that, so will it be a problem getting places to stay without booking ahead for our 3 weeks in Thailand or can we just arrive in places and take our chances. Will New Years eve be a problem? Thank you in advance ...

Quiet beach on Kho Phangan's sunset side

Posted by thaibeachlovers on 12/6/2006 at 02:12

Does anyone have any suggestions for the above? I'd prefer a white sand beach with some interesting walks in the area, be able to stay in a hut/room next to the sand, and have a choice of restaurants. It must be quiet, hopefully not frequented by the party crowd and accessible by vehicle ( I'm past the stage of walking a long way with a big bag ). 500 bht or under. I've been staying at Than Sadet, which fills all the requirements above, but I miss the sunsets ( I used to stay on Railay till it g ...

electronics?

Posted by katyleigh8 on 12/6/2006 at 13:41

Are there places to charge batteries and small electronics (phone, ipod) in SEA or do I need to stock up on batteries, or is it just not even worth bringing along? Wasn't sure where to post this one because it was so general. Thanks so much! ...

Thailand itinerary

Posted by ComingtoThailand on 13/6/2006 at 01:27

1) We are starting to plan a flexible Thailand itinerary on a three-week trip, and it looks like from Chiang Mai, we will probably have time to EITHER go west to Pai and Mae Hong Son OR north to Chiang Rai. If we have to choose between these two, any suggestions which would be better? Also, we're going in August--how real is the possibility of travel being shut down due to rain? 2) Does anyone know if it is possible to catch the overnight train to Chiang Mai from Lopburi if we stop in Ayyutha ...

bangkok for one night before heading to Ko Samui

Posted by jdollar on 11/6/2006 at 03:29

Hi, My travel partner and I are arriving at 11pm into the Bangkok Airport and are looking for a place to stay for that night before we head south the next day. Our main thing is that we don't want the hassle of finding a place to stay late that night, and would also prefer a place that would pick us up at the airport so we don't have the hassle of finding the place after a long day of flying. An english speaking staff would also be a plus to ease us in slowly and answer any questions we had. ...

Islands in August

Posted by karyn on 11/6/2006 at 09:48

I have read and noticed some comments about times of year to visit different islands. I am going to Thailand in August and was wondering if Ko Chang is a good choice or if there is other island(s) that I should pursue instead. Is there a particular region of islands that would be best considering the time of year? Thanks for your thoughts and information! ...

Ko Samui-Mae Nam, Good Better Best?

Posted by VeronicaBotess on 6/6/2006 at 20:00

Hi there, Excellent and helpful site by the way, well done. OK, my problem is this, I am going from Bangok to Ko Samui in early August. Now, which in your opinion is the best way to get from Bangkok to Ko Samui? I've read some train horror stories on the Net and they just don't seem worth the mission despite the price. Would you recommend taking a bus? In that case, is the bus station close to the airport? If you don't recommend taking a bus, then flight is I suppose ideal. If only I wer ...

Vaccinations

Posted by ComingtoThailand on 9/6/2006 at 02:05

What are any of your suggestions about vaccinations for Northern Thailand? We will be in Thailand for about 22 days, and only in the North for about 10 days max. However, in that time, we are unsure where we will be--probably stay to some of the more "touristy" rural areas (Mae Hong Son, Pai, Chiang Rai), but will definitely do a 2-3 night trek and do not want to be limited in where we can go once we're there. Since we have gotten most of the basic vaccines, my biggest question is about the Jap. ...

5 days to go somewhere from Koh Chang......

Posted by samanthas2goode on 2/6/2006 at 16:16

Hi again I'm trying to decide on a couple of ideas about where to go after spending a week in Koh Chang, it will be mid June. I'm contemplating Ko Samui or Ko Samet, but I'm thinking that Ko Samui may be a bit too touristy? any advice on accom or places to visit there? - I don't want to stay in a big concrete hotel nor do I want to stay in a really basic hut. Something in the middle. The other factor is the time element for getting to places, that's why I was thinking about Ko Samet, tha ...
