Deaths of Quebec women in Thailand may have been caused by pesticide

Posted by somtam2000 on 13/3/2014 at 20:27

Interesting following up on the death of two backpackers on Ko Phi Phi in 2012. Seems pesticides may have been the true cause of their death. "The most likely explanation is the acute intoxication and it is intoxication from the chemical that belong to the pesticide group,-Dr. Pasakron Akarasewi, with Thailand's Ministry of Health, told the CBC/Radio-Canada investigation."

one for the experts

Posted by eastwest on 4/3/2014 at 05:25

Starting next week I'll have to spend 2-3 weeks in Thailand waiting for my new passport. Some of this time I'll spend in BKK to catch up with friends but where to go for the remaining 7-10 days? I've been many times to Thailand and have seen all the major sites. I'm looking for a single place in Thailand to kick back and read some books. No interest in beach, nor backpacker/ tourist atmosphere, nor extensive travelling (apart from getting there and some day excursions). I'm looking for a place ...

First Days - Bangkok Chiang Mai

Posted by saramac on 2/8/2013 at 23:29

Hi everyone. I'm arriving in Bangkok early in the morning on August 16, and while I have a loose idea about what my plans are (I will be in the region from August 16 through September 11), after reading so much on this forum, I've decided that (contrary to my overly-planning ways), I am going to try my best to wing it a bit and see what happens! 33 year old female, just quit my job, first time really traveling alone, not a party animal. Am I out of my mind?! This is going to be AMAZING. So, he ...

Are you travelling to Bangkok this month? Or are you already here and soon to make your way home? Then an exciting new TV show wants to hear from you!

Hi All, Just putting some final touches to my honeymoon itinerary - I am looking to do a day trip to Ayuttaya and come back to Bangkok by boat.

I've been looking at organised day trips which seem reasonable and there seem to be two main boat companies - black pearl and river sun cruise - can anyone let me know which is the better option? thanks ...

Questions for first trip to Bangkok for 4 days

Posted by shanladams82 on 1/3/2014 at 21:53

Hello, I have been reading the material and threads on this forum and there are a few questions that I have. When looking for a hotel to book, are there any areas/streets in Bangkok that we do not want to stay at? Our flight will come in at 12:15am and at the end of the trip our flight leaves at 5:30am. Would it be better to just stay at the airport until dawn and then go into town as opposed to booking a hotel for Monday night and not showing up until 1am or later? Do most hotels allow late ...

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 ...
