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 used Travelfish to e-mail Wild Orchid Villa Hostel, but it was returned undeliverable to their account. Do they have a new e-mail account? Is there another way to make a resrevation?

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..

Thinking of doing a tour for about 4 days from Chang Mai taking in Mae Hong Son and Pai. Ideally finishing in Chang Rai, but ok if it finishes back in Chang Rai) that encompasses the trekking (i.e. Elephant Rides, Waterfall trip and Rafting).

I'm looking for places for under $10 USD per night that are clean.
Ideally, with private bath/shower.
AC would probably be asking too much.
Any 'insider' tips on cool beach spots would be great too.
Thanks, Marcus ...

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 ...
