Sattahip?

Posted by Starving_Sound on 25/3/2013 at 20:00

So - I finally have my Visa and my tickets and I am bound for Thailand. But I have a conundrum. I have family in Sattahip who asked me why don't I stay with them. That way I won't have to worry about paying rent anywhere. While that's all great and good I also have to give up not only my privacy but also some of my independence. And strange considering - though family - I don't really know my aunts and uncles. Plus - I really want to see what it's like living in a big city like Bangkok - w ...

Can anyone help with some visa info?

Posted by gratefulmames on 26/12/2013 at 11:54

Hey world, trying to get some info on Thai visas. So I'll be arriving in Bangkok on January 10th and doing a yoga program until the middle of April. Now, obviously I will have to renew my visa within this time frame. In order to get my visa before I arrive in Thailand, I need an onward ticket to a neighboring country (or wherever). What I'm wondering is - should I buy an onward ticket within the time frame of the initial visa (a 60day period) and change the flight date later to April after I fi ...

Hillarious!

Posted by MADMAC on 23/12/2013 at 03:31

OK kids, when you go backpacking you don't have to fit a specific image OK? Was at Big C today with the wife. I never go there, but I needed something at the computer store. Walking in front of me were two kids. They were wearing fisherman's pants, loose fitting cotton shirts, flip flops and... conical straw hats! They were carring very beefy backpacks with bed rolls on top. For one, it's way too cold out right now for those clothes. Everyone around them had jackets and nit caps and the like o ...

Pricing for Kayak and island tours in Ao Nang

Posted by sunnylegs on 20/12/2013 at 22:12

We are in Ao Nang now for 5 days and want to book some tours and want to get some general idea of prices. I got ripped off by one tour company and found that not everyone paid the same so a little skeptical at the moment... What we are looking for is a full day kayak tour where we can paddle ourselves and see caves, mangroves and gorgeous lagoons. Heard Bor Hor in Phang Nga is great and Thalen Bay..? Have also heard these are good sights too: Crystal Lagoon and hot springs Ko Hong - tour? ...

Cheap Clothes - Thailand or Cambodia

Posted by PeterW on 26/1/2012 at 12:55

Hello. Currently in Bangkok and was thinking of buying clothes here. I've come out with rubbish clothes so I can throw them away without feeling wastefull and get a load of new stuff. However, is it better to buy clothes in Cambodia (I'm flying there on the 28th)? I don't want to spend cash here and find out a 3 day wait could sort me out for half the price. Any info would be great as I've heard from others that Cambodia is far cheaper than Thailand for things like accomodation and cigs. Cu ...

KOH LANTA - Long Beach Accommodation High Season

Posted by adammont on 4/12/2013 at 06:11

Hi, I am trying to find accommodation on Koh Lanta in January. We (me and partner) are interested in staying on Long Beach. We would be happy with a simple (clean) bungalow on or near the beach. (Swimming pool would be a bonus) Is it advisable to book somewhere in advance or would we be ok just turning up at the pier and trying to find somewhere?? Bit worried as it is high season. If you have any suggestions on where to stay for around 1000 - 1500 THB per night that would be brilliant. Many ...

Hi I'm travelling to Thailand in February 2014 and will have a few days at the end of my trip by myself, I'll probably be in Phuket so was hoping to see more of the islands. My friend and I are planning on visiting Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui, Koh Phangnan and Koh Phi Phi. I was trying to find another island on the Andaman Coast where I could possibly stay in a luxury villa or resort that was rather affordable for two - four nights by myself just for some down time.

A good barber in Bangkok?

Trivial I know, but in an effort to avoid a skinhead, can anyone advise on a good barbershop in Bangkok? I've been unilaterally warned off it by everyone I've met thus far who's ventured a try.. but I'm 3 months in and starting to resemble Patrick Swayze circa Dirty Dancing... but with none of the rhythm or sex appeal.
