Does the train get booked out ?

Posted by Lecker on 11/5/2006 at 14:14

Hi I've been reading your suggestions on the train theme and I got some questions please. - does the train get booked out? (i've heard that you have to book more than 2 days in advance) ? That travel connexion site why do they ask me how much it is, dont I want them to tell me. Do they just reserve it or do you buy them . Is the 1st class AC adjustable? And do ferrys and buses leave at 4 am in the morning? I guess I could go on and on . but that is just my main thing so thanks ...

Thailand advise but with a small twist

Posted by koan05 on 17/3/2006 at 07:19

However we both would like to go to Krabi area after CM. My questions are: 1) How far in advance would you advise w ...
