Posted by Ellen on 1/6/2006 at 05:27

I'm planning on getting the night train from Bangkok to Chumporn, I was going to get the sensible 22:50 departure which arrives at an equally sensible 05:52 (just enough time to grab some breakfast and catch the early boat to Ko Tao) but my gf wants to travel first class and only 2nd class is available on this train 1st class is available on the 19:15 departure, but it means arriving into Chumporn at 4am, Is there anything to do at this time?

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 ...

Koh Tao to Khao Sok???

Posted by Benjamin on 1/6/2006 at 16:01

I am really fishing for some specialty info here. I know that if I can get an answer anywhere, it would have to be on this fantastic site. My wife and I will be on Koh Tao learning to dive. After we finish there, we really want to visit Khao Sok national park and possibly stay in the floating cabins on the lake. The problem is we can't figure how to get from Tao to Khao sok in as short a time as possible. My Questions are: 1.Has anyone made this trip and have info to share? 2.When ...

Need to reserve in advance?

Posted by ComingtoThailand on 3/6/2006 at 03:57

My wife and I are going to be in Thailand for approximately three and a half weeks during August (August 7-August 31). We will be on midrange backpacker budget (not the cheapest thing we can find, but nothing too expensive). Is there any need to reserve anything in advance, such as lodging/bus or train tickets/treks in Northern Thailand? Although I have done weeklong trips in Europe when I was studying abroad, I have not really done a long plan-as-you-go type trip like this one, but we want to l ...

Where to go in June

I am going out to Thailand in June and meeting a friend there to go to Samui and Ko Pha Ngan for a couple of weeks. However, will be in the country on my own for the first 5-6 days and was trying to think of somewhere to go. I've already seen Samui and Ko Pha Ngan, so would like to go somewhere else. Can anyone recommend anywhere? Was thinking of Ko Chang until I was told the weather will be utter pants. Preferably somewhere vaguely lively as I'm quite sociable. Many thanks! ...

Weather in Gulf of Thailand/ Ko Chang in June
