Five nights to travel from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai

Posted by heidisueelvus on 27/1/2014 at 21:42

I'm interested in renting a car and driving from Chiang Mai to Sukhothai . The route I'm most interested in would be from CM to Chiang Dao, Phrao, Phayao, Phrae, Nan, Sukhothai. Can anyone tell me if this is doable logistically? If it is, is it too much ground to cover in 5 nights? Is it possible to rent a car in CM and drop it off in Sukhothai or Phitsanulok? If it's not so good do you have any other more realistic suggestions? Thanks so much! ...

Travelling with a very young child

Posted by Sparts on 21/1/2014 at 08:46

Ok, so I'm looking for opinions here. Having been to Thailand a number of times now I'd not consider myself as a stranger to that part of the world. I'm planning a trip towards the middle of this year. Nothing fancy or off the beaten track. Just a nice relaxing break on a beach we are familiar with (or were). We'll simply be flying into Bangkok before flying to Samui for onwards transport to Phangan. As I said, simples! The difference this time I that we'll be bringing our toddler who will onl ...

3 Weeks in Thailand 2014 - Where should we go?

Posted by howtravel on 26/1/2014 at 08:09

Looking forward to 3 weeks holiday in Thailand. Have booked flights to Bangkok arriving second week of February 2014. As a couple (30/40s) we are new to Thailand and looking for: Mostly laid back beautiful beach relaxation. A few great sights and trips but but not adrenaline filled action.

A good place to post up in Thailand for cheap?

Posted by Skittens on 19/1/2014 at 09:00

Hi. I'm a writer currently in Thailand. I'm going to be doing some traveling around Asia with a friend for the next month or so, but after that I'm going to be looking for a place to post up and get some work done. Ideally I would like to find a place that is relatively inexpensive and laid back, a mix of travelers and locals, and the opportunity to socialize when I want but also a place to recede to when I want to work or chill or read. Of course this is all personal preference, but I'm ope ...

Phi Phi to Phang Nga

Quite a specific question, but I'm struggling to fit everything in to my itinerary. I'll be staying in Phi Phi in March. My plan is then to go up to Phang Nga (via Phuket ) for a trip around the hongs before travelling over to Koh Phangan. In a bid to maximise available time in my 2 week trip my plan is to leave Phi Phi on the early morning ferry to Phuket, take a bus (either public or minibus) up to Phang Nga and then get on one of the half day, afternoon tours. Sayan's website suggests they ...

Hi All, Firstly wanted to say thanks to everyone who has answered one of my posts on here before - you're all really helping me put together our dream honeymoon trip We had originally ruled out the Golden Triangle area due to time.

Trip report from Phu Nam Ron, closest border to Bangkok for Visa extensions being only 200km via Kanchanaburi and or quickest overland route to Myanmar. I left Bangkok in the morning taking the shuttle bus which leaves throughout the day at 20-40 minute intervals. The minibus cost $110 Bhat, but equally I could have bused or the train. The mini van dropped me at the Kanchanaburi bus station. From there we then caught the 11:30am (also 10:30 & 12:30) bus from Kanchanaburi to Phu Nam R ...

Islands: Gulf vs. Andaman Sea

Posted by Tetso on 17/1/2014 at 16:29

Planning a trip back to Thailand for some island / snorkeling time and wanted to get some advice on the Gulf vs. the Andaman Sea. I've been to Ko Tao (AMAZING) and Ko Pha Ngan (both in the Gulf) - but that was 10 years ago. I really liked Ko Tao, it wasn't too crowded, it was quiet for the most part and had easy access to amazing snorkeling all around the island. I'm looking for something similar with good snorkeling - no need for big hotels / resorts. Ko Kood and Ko Mak look good. I was a ...
