Going south JUST for dive cert. Advice?

Posted by Maran on 8/4/2014 at 07:03

I'm flying from Auckland to Singapore on May 31 and sleeping at the airport before flying to Bangkok in the morning of June 1. Kind of wish I booked to fly from singapore to krabi now instead of bk because I really want my diving certificate before travelling north and doing the loop around Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. I've always wanted to dive so would want to be able to do so in nam or Cambodia should the opportunity arise. But ko Tao is cheapest I hear and sounds like a good vibe so I am thin ...

Help with initial itinerary

Posted by foxiebex on 30/4/2014 at 10:08

Hi, I am trying to put together an itinerary for a month in Thailand. I have travelled a little in Thailand before but this will be my first time solo. I have put together a rough idea of what I would like to do but it's just not quite coming together. The first part of the trip is governed by two factors. I am meeting with a friend on Phi Phi and or Krabi on around the 14th December and I would like to be at the Full Moon party on Ko Pha-ngan on Christmas day (insert full moon comments here!) ...

Border crossing bus/train ticket online reservation

Posted by lillalla on 16/4/2014 at 05:58

Hi! Does anyone know where I could reserve or buy a cheap ticket crossing (any) border out of Thailand and back (any form of transport)? I need to get a double-entry visa (I'm a Croatian citizen so I need a visa), and the embassy insists that I show some proof of leaving Thailand and coming back so they can issue the double-entry visa. I don't need to actually end up using these tickets, so the cheaper the better. Flights are of course an option, but I'd have to spend at least 60 eur, and I'd r ...

Bedbugs! Need urgent advice!

Posted by karibou on 5/3/2014 at 10:59

Checked into a (Travelfish recommended) guesthouse in Khao Sok today, and after I turned out the lights I discovered i was being attacked by a large number of bedbugs. I'm a middle-aged woman traveling alone for the first time in Asia and had never encountered them before. Told the owner (late at night) who verified the problem and had me pack up and move to another room. I have no faith that when I turn off the lights again, a new swarm of bedbugs won't come out over here. So I will probably st ...

How to find a hostel?

Posted by travelbug777777 on 21/4/2014 at 14:39

I'm going to Thailand for around 5 weeks. I know the islands and places I am planning to visit, but I want to wing it with timing, so I'm not booking any accommodations in advance. I was wondering what the best way is to find accommodations. Do you just ask a taxi to take you to the nearest hostel? I'm thinking of having three or four possibilities. But even then do I just ask a taxi to take me to one of them? ...

I'm working in an entry level job that pays OK, I'm currently saving for my trip but am not quite so sure as to how much my trip is going to cost me. I'm hoping to travel around south east Asia for a year, then head onto Australia to work for a year. I'm not planning to live like a king and am happy to eat street food, sleep in cheap accommodation... I guess I would be looking to go out every ...

My start to life on the open road. What shouldn't be missed?

Good Day to you Travel Fish Folk... I am a 31 year old female closing down on the easy life in the west and hitting the road on my own on the 3rd November. Bit of a late starter...? Yeah well no one else was going to pay for me to do this so I have had to work my a** off and still will be until the month before I go.. The plan is simple - I have ended work and will be on the road for a minimum of 5 years. I don't assume this will be an easy ride so spare me the lectures...[img]smileys/wink.gif ...

Chiang Khong crossing to Laos

Posted by Pjotra on 10/12/2013 at 02:42

For those, wanting to cross the Mekong at Chiang Khong : as from December 12, 2013, the old ferrycrossing from Chiang Khong stops to exist, as is the Visa office on the Laos side. From then you have to use the new BRIDGE, 9km. downstream from Chiang Khong ( 4km. on the road, then left and another 5 km) I am probably the first to cross on that date, when I experience difficulties on either side of the river, I will report about it later. Hopefully the old taxfree, which used to be very inetersti ...
