Hostel exchange in Bangkok - voluntary work in return for a free bed

Posted by Eldwyer90 on 21/8/2014 at 06:51

Hi guys, I am currently coming towards the end of my travels and I have two weeks to kill before I fly home. I am just wondering if anyone is aware of any hostels in Bangkok or surrounding areas that offer a free bed for the night in return for voluntary work. I would ideally like a base so that I can use my last 15 days applying for work back home in the UK. As you can imagine, money is a bit tight as it's towards the end of my travels! Any help/advice would be really appreciative! Eleanor ...

Island visit last week of october

Posted by PadThai on 20/8/2014 at 12:53

Hi We're currently planning our trip to Thailand and Laos. Our trip starts on october 26th and we're staying for 3 weeks. Since we're going to a wedding in Laos (fixed date), we would like to start in Thailand with a few days at the beach. I've read that october is not the best month to visit the islands (rain), but we don't have a lot of choice. Can anyone advise us on an island that has pretty good weather at the end of rain season? Since it will already be 26th of october when we arrive, I'm ...

Posted by Annielay on 4/8/2014 at 23:51

Hello. Does anyone have any recommendations for alternatives to the slow boat down the Mekong River from Chiang Khong/Houey Xay border to Luang Prabang. I have found a few cruise companies on line but was wondering if anyone has any good experiences they could advise on. We are a fit couple in our 60s who don't particularly want to rough it too much like we have done in the past. Also what is the must see destinations in Luang Prabang. Many thanks ...

Accommodation prices for New Year in Koh Phangan?

Posted by scotthutch90 on 10/8/2014 at 12:37

I'm looking for prices online for Koh Phangan over New Year as we will be meeting up with friends for the full moon party. Although we have read that you are best to get to the island a few days before to get the best prices most of our friends will be spending Christmas with their families before leaving on the 27th and arriving in Phuket the 29th so won't really be able to get somewhere early. So how much will they be looking to pay, will there be decent accommodation left by the time the ar ...

Andaman Islands - snorkeling in December - any advice

Posted by Surefolly on 4/8/2014 at 12:55

Looking for an island on the Andaman Sea side of Thailand to spend a week on over Christmas. I'll be traveling with my wife and our two boys (ages 8 & 11). We'd like to find a place to just relax, explore and snorkel. The main goal is to find snorkeling that is on par with Koh Tao - which we visited in 2003. I've heard there are some good places to stay that are close to other islands that you can visit on day trips to snorkel. We're also curious what the weather is like during that time of ...

Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary

Posted by gregmccann1 on 1/8/2014 at 03:47

Just got back from an incredible 5-day trip to Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary down in Surat Thani. Khao Sok NP is much more popular than Khlong Saeng but, having been to Khao Sok 3 times previously, I can say that the jungle is much better in Khlong Saeng -more wildlife, far fewer tourists, and equally as beautiful in the Chiao Lan Lake section (Khao Sok and Khlong Saeng share this area 50-50). Anyway, have a look at a trip report that I just wrote up here that contains descriptions and practic ...
