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. I will have about 70,000 baht ($2000 US) as a budget for the entire trip. My goal, as most other backpackers, is to live on the beache ...

Which airline is the cheapest ? and some other questions.

Posted by tsargood on 11/4/2006 at 15:18

1. Which airline is the cheapest to get from Bangkok to Koh Samui? 2. Are there regular long boats to Haad Rin or Haad Yuan from Koh Samui? 3. How long does the longboat take to Haad Rin from Koh Samui? 4. How much does the long boat cost? 5. Is the domestic airport in the same place as the Bangkok International?

Site Updates

Posted by scudder3 on 12/4/2006 at 03:00

Hello, I am a frequent visitor (first time poster) on this site and I think it is wonderful. Quick question/suggestion. I noticed in a previous post Sontam2000 said "Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao and Ko Samui are being fully updated through May this year." Is there a section on this site such as "What's New"? Since I have explored most of the site, I find it difficult to discover what has been recently added, updated, etc. This may also be relevant for the Gibbon Experience article you are plan ...

First time in Thailand

Posted by tennie on 6/4/2006 at 15:03

Hello! I will be travelling in Thailand in January 2007 and was wondering if I could get some advice regarding where to go and how organised I should be. It's my first time travelling independently and I'm a bit of an organised freak. I've read a lot of the suggestions in this forum and found it quite helpful, though there are so many things I'd like to find out! Here are my questions: 1) most people have suggested to me to not book hotels in advance so as to be flexible re: length of sta ...

Where to stay...

Posted by travelsalone on 27/3/2006 at 20:23

Goal: Pre-arrange a place to stay in BKK the first night or two (arriving late) so as to get a visa for Vietnam...maybe apply then leave BKK a couple days, return for the visa...who knows! Question: Are there recommendations for places from people with first hand knowledge of them? I read and search and look at tons of places, but find it better to hear from someone who knows. A place that is not too expensive, but clean and safe would be nice, and preferably not predominantly a tourist or part ...

NB Hotel - Udon Thani

Posted by busgen on 5/4/2006 at 14:07

You'll not find this hotel very easily if you enter: "hotels udon thani" in a search engine, but this is really worthwhile............I discovered the hotel 3 years ago. It had just opened.

The staff is very friendly and the welcome is warm. Since last year there is a new restaurant, where you can get continental ...

Phrao Question

Posted by dvgainer on 3/4/2006 at 10:41

I was thinking of stopping in Phrao, Chiang Dao, or both, en route to Mae Salong and Laos. As this is the only place I've seen anything on Phrao, I was wondering if anyone could compare the two. I'm guessing Phrao's a lot quieter, but are there enough walks or places to swim for a couple of lazy days? Is it possible to rent a bike? Also, is there public transportation from Phrao to Chiang Dao. Thanks, great site, david ...

6 days to spare- what beaches / areas in May / June?

Posted by grahamcoleman on 30/3/2006 at 20:07

Hi all - my girlfriend & I are going to have 6 days spare in Thailand. The rest of our holiday is planned, but there's 6 days in the middle after we finish up North, and before we start on a sailing trip. We're looking for somewhere with nice beaches, but also must be places to chill out, but also places were there are people. Not looking for Ibiza, but just somewhere where there is a bit of life at night, and things to do - boat trips, excursions, water sports, things to see. If you were us, ...
