    • Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Krabi, Phi Phi, Ko Lanta... 14 days... Crazy??

      Thailand 30 minutes ago

      Hello, my fiancé and I are planning our honeymoon in Thailand. We will land in Bangkok on Tuesday, November 4th at around 7AM and depart on Monday, November 17th, 2014. I have our itinerary mostly set, but would love some help tweaking it, and some advice. We are in our early thirties, and are not really big drinkers. My fiancé is well-traveled, and has backpacked all through Africa and the Middle-East. I have lived abroad for some time as well, so we can take a bit of an adventure. Our itinerary is as follows....

      Nov, 4th- Land in BANGKOK, Soi 38 market, stay near Sukhmvit

      Nov 5th- BANGKOK- Tour Historic Sites- Temple of Golden Buddha, Temple of Dawn, Temple of Reclining Buddha, Emerald Buddha, etc., same BANGKOK hotel

      Nov 6th- BANGKOK- Open, Overnight sleeper train to Chiang Mai

      Nov, 7th- CHIANG MAI- Elephant Nature Park in Lampang, Chiang Mai Hotel

      Nov, 8th- CHIANG MAI- Open, Chiang Mai Hotel

      Nov, 9th- Flight from Chiang Mai to Krabi (Departs 12:40PM, Arrives 4:10PM in Krabi), KRABI Hotel

      Nov, 10th- KRABI- Railay Beach via Long Tail Boat, Krabi vs Railay Beach Hotel

      Nov 11th- 1.5 Hour Ferry from Krabi to PHI PHI ISLAND, Phi Phi Hotel

      Nov, 12th- PHI PHI ISlAND HOTEL- Open

      Nov, 13th- 1 Hour ferry from Phi Phi to Ko Lanta, KO LANTA ISLAND Hotel (Narima?)

      Nov, 14th- KO LANTA- Open Ko Lanta Hotel

      Nov, 15th- 2 Hour ferry back to KRABI, Berk Fah Andaman Festival, KRABI HOTEL

      Nov, 16th- Flight from Krabi to Bangkok (Depart 11:30AM- Land 12:55PM), Hotel Near BKK

      Nov 17th- BKK to ORD

       

      We already have our flights books, but we are not absolutely set on the islands yet. I think Ko Lanta is more our style, and that one is pretty set. We would be up for skipping Krabi or Phi Phi if you think it will be too much moving around. We would love to stay in beach-front bungalows with a view every night if we could. We also would love to see monkeys, do some rock climbing, kayak, and things that are a bit active. We also want to see some of the historic sites throughout Thailand. My friend stayed in a jungle tree house which sounds amazing, I just can't find anything like that. If you could help with our itinerary, I would love the assistance and will pay it forward when we return! Our budget per hotel is $100 USD per night, but would love to spend less one night, and maybe do a nicer place, $150 USD, on one island. We would love any recommendations!!!

    • Khao Sok National Park

      Thailand Apr 16, 2014 at 1:40 PM

      I am going to be in Phuket toward the end of this month and want to go to Khao Sok National park for 2 days. I found a few places to stay near by. What is the best way to get there? Any recommended tour companies to use while in the park?

      I am also trying to figure out the best way to do this, because after leaving Khao sok I need to fly to BKK, I suppose flying out of Surat Thiani would be best. Given all the driving I need to do, that is why I think maybe renting a car will be best? I will be with one other person.

    • 9 days - Lijiang, Dali and Shangrila

      Lijiang Apr 12, 2014 at 12:37 AM

      I am planning a 9 days trip to China where I will be flying into Lijiang and hoping to cover Lijiang, Dali and Shangrila. I would like to do some trekking and explore around to understand the local way of life.

      Some help in my planning is greatly appreciated:
      1. How many days should I spend in each of the places?
      2. How do I go from one place to another? Do I have to book in advance or will i be able to just do it via the guesthouse?
      3. How long is the travel from place to place? I am particularly concerned about the treks where I might require a stayover? Which are the ones I should look out for so I can factor that in my planning.

      THANK YOU very much!

Does anyone know if it's a better rate to withdraw cash from an ATM or do a cash exchange on the island.

      about a holiday to Phuket

      Phuket Yesterday

      Hello, my husband and I are planning to spend a week in Phuket in July. I have a few questions to ask and I would appreciate early answers so I can book our tickets:-)

      1. We found the trip through a travel agency but it cost 1000 euros more than if we book it on our own. Is it that difficult to do that without a group and a guide? (I don't think so but anyway).
      2. What about visas to Thailand? How do we arrange that?
      3. Do we have to go to Bangkok and then to Phuket? We found a cheap ticket (stop at Jordan and then to Phuket straight). Isn't it better?
      4. The airport is close to which beach? I realize that there are various beaches (depending on your taste). Which one is closer to the airport? Or is that a trivial matter?
      5. Is going to the other islands expensive? Is food expensive? I mean, as a holiday in general, does it require a lot of pocket money? We want to see the islands and do activities but not to shop.

      Well, I hope I haven't forgotten anything. If I do, I'll post some more questions :-)
      Thank you for your time.
