Chiang Mai hotel recommendation - Dec-27 - Dec-30

Posted by leland on 29/11/2013 at 01:08

I'm looking up recommended places from the board, but it's a busy time of year. Wondering if someone has a few good spots for mid-30s friends? Require two beds.

Thailand Visa - help!

Posted by IndiaGabrielle on 6/6/2013 at 15:27

Hi everyone, I'm going to Thailand at the end of July and need to sort my Visa. What's the best way to do this? I'm going to Thailand for around 2/3 months, but going to be leaving to travel to Vietnam/Cambodia etc within this time. Do I need to go to a Thai embassy in Britain to get a Visa? Would a tourist visa be the one that I need? (Visa-free stay isn't an option - I think I'll be there too long). Any help on this topic would be much appreciated! Thanks ...

In search of good weather..?

Posted by eirengal on 4/12/2013 at 00:09

Hi, I'm about to complete a year of travelling and had planned to spend my final week on a beach in the sunshine just chilling out. I'm in Ko Tao at the minute and, as expected, the weather is pretty miserable. It is rainy season though so no surprises. I believe that the weather on the Andaman coast is similar to here, however, and this throws my plans in the air. I had planned to go to krabi/phi phi for the last week of my trip. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to go that is ge ...
