Hi all ! I would love to get some advice on what the best route to take would be through Thailand/Laos/Vietnam. I've got 5 1/2 weeks with my boyfriend (first trip together, eek!) starting in late April from Bangkok..
I'm not sure which direction I should go about getting to the following places.. and by bus/train/plane?
Was thinking of heading down to the south first to Krabi (to try to avoid the rainy season in May?) then I'd like to somehow travel to Laos (Luang Prabang) and Vietnam (H ...

I'm in Chiang Mai and plan to go to Pai for a few days on Saturday.
I would prefer to stay in a bungalow or at least somewhere with a pretty garden or riverside.
I would like to meet some other people, so prefably somewhere that's easy to make friends.
I want a basic clean room with a fan, private hot shower and western toilet. (willing to pay up to 600 baht/night)
I have selected a few:
Breeze of Pai
Does anyone know if these are along my requiremen ...
Trying to figure out where to stay in Bangkok.

My backpack is ready there's only one decision left!
Should I take my cell phone and buy a Thai SIM card? I don't know whether it's worth it but a lot of people have suggested for me to do this (prob. because I'm a solo female traveller).
Calls abroad using a Thai SIM card - are they very expensive?
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 ...
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. ...
Anyone know where I can get a copy of nancy chandler chiang mai? I'm going to be leaving soon so I don't think I want to order it online. Is there a bookstore or something? I'm going to be staying at Pagoda Inn. ...
I understand that there are 3 types of train running the Bangkok-Chiang Mai route, Rapid, Express and Special Express. The Rapids are the slowest and take 15 hrs, whilst the others travel at night and take 10-12 hrs.
Only the Rapids travel during the day, but tourists seem to prefer the night trains. I want to see the countryside on my journey.
Are the Rapids really bad as suggested, or am I missing something fundamental?
Thanks, Rayc101 ...
I am planning a 4 week trip to thailand during August, am very excited as I am doing it alone, I am sure I will meet people along the way but is there anywhere specific that is a good place to go if you are alone? Am thinking of travelling from Bangkok down to the south and hitting the beaches, anywhere that needs avoiding at that time of year due to weather? Thanks for any advice you can give. ...
Is this possible or not?? www gives a bit contradictive info about this. Is the Lao Airlines the only carrier at the moment when Thai Air has closed their operations on that route??
Another issue as well; I will be traveling in Thailand + Laos on June. What the weather will be like. My intention is to spend first two weeks in norhtern part of Thailand and visit Laos too.
Last two weeks in islands but don't know yet where due to monsoon season. My thoughts at the moment: Koh Chang and Koh ...
Hi. We will arrive at the Bangkok airport late at night and we have an early morning flight to Loas. If we want to get any sleep at all, we are going to have to stay someplace close by. I have always stayed on Khao San Road before and that was what I was planning on doing until I found out that there is only 7 hours in between when we arrive and leave (plus we will have to allow time for customs and be there early for check-in). Can anyone recommend a good place? Is it safe to just stay at ...
