Posted by slave2dafunk on 27/4/2006 at 18:22

I live in Chiang Mai and am going down to Koh Tao for a week of holiday. I've been before and stayed at Laem Thian resort, but just for a few days. Looking for something different this time. Was thinking about staying at Sai Thong Resort. Anyone know anything about that? Also any recommendations of awesome beaches/snorkelling spots to check out (asthma and very little money, so no diving!). Also we were thinking about going to Ang Thong Marine Park. I've heard there is a place to stay there ...

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.
