Seeking good tailor in Patong!

Posted by peader14 on 9/4/2014 at 08:15

Hi All, I'm new to travelfish so please be kind. I'm going to be arriving in Patong, Phuket in June and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the local tailors. I've been to Patong before but never purchased a suit so I'm looking for advice on a good tailor that is not expensive. The reviews on the net are mixed so I would like to hear directly from someone with first hand experience. I will be using Patong as my base to do some Island hopping so I won't be on the Island all the t ...

Posted by LeonardCohen1 on 7/4/2014 at 20:41

Does anyone know if there are some decent restaurants within 500m of this resort? Or is the resort restaurant itself good for food? How far are the deluxe garden bungalows from the beach and how steep is the walk? If one.books a snorkelling trip do u have to walk to another part of the island to join.the boat?

Thailand Islands/Beaches

Posted by Jacqueline16 on 3/4/2014 at 19:34

Hi Guys, I'm heading to Thailand/Laos in May and was hoping to get some advice on the second half of my trip. I fly into Phuket on the 14th May and will have 8 nights to spend on the islands before flying to Bangkok (hopefully from Koh Samui) on the 22nd) I was originally thinking of spending 3 nights on Phi Phi Island and then 5 nights at Koh Samui but the more I look into it the more I think there might be a better island to see. I want somewhere with a beautiful beach and a lively (but n ...

We are considering booking an over-night trek with Chiang Dao Nest and would love to hear from others who have experience with them. Thanks. ...

Hello, We are a young couple arriving in Ko Sumai airport on June 6 and departing June 14th. We are looking to spend the 7 days island hopping but are not sure of the best way to plan it.

Cool Down in Ayutthaya

Posted by Architeuthis on 2/4/2014 at 09:28

Hello All. I´m planning a 4 week trip to Thailand from december to january 2014/2015. On this trip I´m going to stay in Ayutthaya for a couple of days. I´ve been here before and found the city sometimes even hotter than Bangkok. For a cool down I only found two dingy pools at some hotels a little outside the center. So, does anyone know of some other good spots to cool down and take a swim? Maybe some river a little outside the city? Thanks in advance Andreas ...

I used Travelfish way back when, I think at the time you only covered Thailand then, mebbe 8 years ago. now I've saved up for another trip. Before anything else congrats on expansion to loads more of South East Asia. Very nice. Great for readers and I guess great for you too. Nice. BUT, where is the budget accommodation gone? Im flying into Bangkok and when I looked at your Khaosan section it seems a lot more slim than it used to be. Theres more words given to stylish places over those that a ...

So, I will be spending a month in Thailand during the upcoming low season. I am somewhat of a planner, so I have mapped out an itinerary that takes me to all my major interest points. However, I have five days, including days spent traveling, that are completely left open.

After that, I wanted to visit Ko Lipe or ...

Ao Nang or Krabi or Railay

Posted by kriskeogh on 23/11/2011 at 01:25

Can I have some thoughts and opinions of people that have stayed in Ao Nang as what i'm reading about it isn't ticking any boxes for us. The wife wants to stay in or around Krabi area as the last stop off on our honeymoon and we would have 5 nights there. However the last thing is want is a Thai Benidorm, somewhere cheesy, tacky and people harrassing you on the street. I'd personally rather stay in Krabi town but is this worthwhile or stay on Railay Beach (west?) but there is only a few h ...

Cheap Monthly Rate For Room in Chiang Mai Late January

Posted by monthlyrate on 1/1/2014 at 19:16

I want to find a room in Chiang Mai from 22 January, for a month. I am having trouble finding the monthly rates. I am hoping to spend less than $250USD for the month, including utilities if possible. I don't want to rent a bike so I would prefer to be near the old town, the moat etc. I have been to Chiang Mai twice before and both times I stayed in the Bliss Hotel or Green Hill Place. They are near Nimman Rd and quite expensive ($350+ inc utilities). So, I want to try somewhere else. I would ...
