I'm leaving for BKK tomorrow (!) so this is a pretty last minute question... I have a charger for my digital camera battery, and the charger is rated up to 240 V, so I think I only need an outlet adapter thing for thailand and most of the rest of SEA, as opposed to some transformer deal, right? Just confirming that...
And second, should I buy the adaptor here (in Vancouver) or are they fairly easy to find in Bangkok? I'm pretty certain I'll be able to find just about anything I might want, an ...
Am looking for approximate time to clear customs as I want to book an ongoing flight to Chiang Mai. I believe it is cheaper to advance book than to walk on, also some flights (NokAir) have varying prices according to time of flight.

Would anyone be able to tell me how long it takes by road from Chiang Mai to the border crossing with Laos at Chiang Khong/Huay Xai. Is approx 7 hrs about right?? I'm trying desperately to see if i can fit in the gibbon experience into a 3 weeks whistle stop tour.
Can it be done in a day and do ferries cross the river run into the evening as i think we'll need to stay in Huay Xai for the night and then go onto the gibbon experience in the mornin and then onto Luang Prabang.
Any help appreciate ...

Does anyone know about the new guesthouse in Chiang Mai called "Mini Cost"? I understand that it's just inside Tha Pae Gate behind the Montri Hotel. Anyone stay there yet, or have an e-mail address to reserve a room? Thanks. ...
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 ...

I'm from the US and I will most likely go to Thailand this Decemeber '06 - January '07 with a Thai lady friend whom I met here in the US (she was born and raised in Chiang Mai though). I've also been to Thailand myself but during the spring.
I imagine that Christmas/NYE/January are very busy and expensive days to be in Thailand. Luckily we will not need a hotel in CM. However we both would like to go to Krabi area after CM. My questions are:
1) How far in advance would you advise w ...
So finally off next week..

I'm looking for places for under $10 USD per night that are clean.
Ideally, with private bath/shower.

Hey guys, me again! I am trying (note the word 'trying') to learn some basic thai before my trip later this year, am using the brilliant learningthai.com website as a starter tool.
