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, ...

How much rain is 200cm

Posted by dvgainer on 28/3/2006 at 05:16

I'm trying to decide whether to go to Railay, and maybe Ko Yao, for 4-7 days in June. I've read that it rains about 100 cm more there than on the Gulf side, but I can't really relate that number to anything (outside of it sounding like a lot of rain). Is all day rain common, or is it more of a nice in the morning storm in the afternoon pattern. Should I expect the beach currents to be bad? Both places are somewhat protected...I'd expect the water to be muddier, but would I be able to get in a co ...

North Thailand Trek suggestions, anyone?

Posted by hector on 16/3/2006 at 07:50

Hi I've got a miniscule 2 weeks to go travelling in April, so I figured a week in North Thailand and a week in North Laos. I'm really wanting to do a 3, 4 or 5 day trek in North Thailand. Not too fussed with elephant riding or rafting, just keen to exert myself a bit up a mountain somewhere breathtaking with a cool group of young people like me. Chiang Dao sounds like a pretty good spot, any other suggestions? Thanks. ...

CAmbodia to Ko Chang

Posted by ezzie on 22/3/2006 at 21:22

Hello - we will be coming from Siam Reap, hence cross the border at Poipet on Cambodia side. Trying to understand transport from thai side down to Ko Chang - as in 2 buses and a boat? or 1 bus and a boat? and how long this will take. I have no idea how frequent the transport is in this direction as everything seems to be heading towards Bangkok. I understand it is all acheivable in a day - but if it is a really full on day of travel maybe we will give it a miss, as time is short, and we woul ...

Hello there, My name is Ammaryllis and my daughter and I will be traveling to Thailand at the end of december for three weeks.

Posted by DannyJ on 6/3/2006 at 01:54

Hey people, hope everyones happy today! I've been doing a bit of research myself but would like some personal opinions from others. Which area of Bangkok would you recommend for a first timer in Bangkok? I was wanting to check out the main spots i.e. Grand Palace, Jim Thompson's etc. but also do alot of people watching and just generally get a 'feel' for Bangkok. Hopefully by the time i arrive (September) i will have got my tongue around a small amount of Thai so wouldn't mind staying in a ve ...

day trip from Chiang Mai - Lamphun

Posted by ajlmus on 28/2/2006 at 23:19

A nice day trip from Chiang Mai is Lamphun; nice town not yet affected by tourism. It's a 30 min on the "blue bus" from Chiang Mai. I was able to see the city museum, visit a couple of wats, and had a cold beer at the quiet Ta Nang Bar & Grill (across the street from the east gate) in one afternoon. Next time, I'm going to spend less time in Chiang Mai and take more day trips like this out of town. ...
