Anyone in Surat Thani ?

Posted by ianintheworld on 25/2/2014 at 09:09

I am in Singapore right now, and wanted to stay at the 100 Island Resort in Surat. I have been emailing for the past few days, but no reply. Wondering, is the hotel still in business, or is it closed, or just being very slack with responding to emails. If anyone can let me know the situation, appreciated. Ian ...

Protests in Bangkok

Posted by buttonbridge on 24/2/2014 at 03:45

Is there anyone on the ground in Bangkok who can give a 'live' update? We have no 'don't go' advice from UK FCO, just to avoid protest sites. Personally I am due in BKK this Thursday and plan to stay 2 nights in a hotel on Sukhumvit Rd near Nana station, before moving out of the city. ...

Overnight sleeper BKK to Chiang Mai.

Posted by buttonbridge on 26/2/2014 at 01:47

Sorry, another question as my trip starts tomorrow. I used the advice given on what I consider to be a very good website to try to sort my train ticket. I dont know if I am allowed to post the link so I will just give a clue - 'the man in seat 61' It suggested emailing them with my requirements, but allow a good 2 weeks as they are notorious in slow email replies. I now realise that it has been over a month and no reply. My question is - Will I be able to get an overnight sleeper with only ...

bus from pattaya to kanchanaburi

Posted by rohveer on 2/2/2014 at 07:53

Are there any direct buses which reach Kanchanaburi from Pattaya apart from Sri Mongkol bus terminal at Chaloem Phrakiat, Pattaya Sai 3. There are only 2 buses one in the morning and one at evening. Taking a taxi is out of question as it is way beyond my budget and I don't want the hassle of going to Bangkok by bus and then again catching another bus to Kanchanaburi.Thanks in advance.[/ulist] ...

Drownings in Ko Samui

Posted by Yorkshire_Kiwi on 24/2/2014 at 07:37

Please be careful if you're visiting Chaweng and enjoy a dip in the sea. I had the unfortunate experience of seeing somone drown today. Although many of us attempted to revive him he sadly passed away. This guy was a fit strong young person. Since this incident I have seen many such stories from Chaweng, it appears to be a common occurrance. Look out for the red flags and warnings, and if they're there DON'T go in! This has affected me greatly, I can only guess what the families feel. Don't let ...

3 weeks in Thailand in may/june

Posted by sulaco on 24/2/2014 at 07:08

Hi Everybody, I'm planning to spend 3 weeks in Thailand between May 18th and June 8th. In previous holidays I've been in Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia but for some reason, I always skipped Thailand. I will be arriving from Kuala Lumpur and if possible I prefer to avoid Bangkok, since I've been there already (same for Ko Samui). My idea is 2 weeks of sightseeing and 1 week of beach and relax. Starting from Chiang Mai , can somebody suggest an itinerary going south and fin ...

Krabi April/May

Posted by sarah6969pink on 24/11/2013 at 12:25

Hi All, Am planning honeymoon to SE Asia for next year. So far have 4 nights Hong Kong, then onto Bangkok for 2/3 nights. We know we want some time on a Thai Beach. We've done the Eastern Islands before and whilst we have not ruled out going back we'd rather go to the Western Islands and try Krabi - I'm aware that the weather starts to change there in April, so I'm wondering whether it is worth risking it for April/May time. I know no-one can give us any guarantees weather wise - but just afte ...

Bangkok to Siem Reap in Taxi

Posted by chicken_adobo on 19/2/2014 at 00:32

There's 3 of us traveling form Bangkok to Siem Reap in a couple of weeks, probably March 3rd or 4th, and we are looking into renting a taxi instead of taking a bus. Somehow, my travel partners' research say it's not much more expensive per person to take this route, but we're buying convenience this way, since we can stop or not stop anytime along way, and it's less time consuming in a way. We're looking for ONE more person if anybody's interested, so let me know so we can start finalizing ...

Which Gulf Island In June

Posted by moellercl on 20/2/2014 at 20:22

My 17 YO daughter and I are going to Thailand for almost a month in June 2014. The first week we would like to go to an island. We both love to swim, sunbathe, snorkel, hike some, and really need some help deciding which island or islands to visit. We have about a week. So far I have been leaning towards, Koh TAo, Koh Chang, Koh Samui or Koh Phangan (but it will be FMP) I am not interested in the party scene at all. We like to eat out and shop a little and explore some. We may fly there from Ban ...

Farmer protesters on their way to Suvarnabhumi Airport

Posted by DLuek on 20/2/2014 at 21:20

It looks like the angry rice farmer contingent is on its way to Suvarnabhumi today. According to the Bangkok Post, a leader "insisted that the farmers have no intention of seizing the airport, but admitted that passengers might have some difficulty getting there." That means the access roads might be overrun by tractors, trucks and a few thousands farmers by this afternoon. Definitely a good day to take the Airport Rail Link. Here's the article: http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/local/39 ...
