    • Getting around and making hotel reservations in Thailand next month? Weather?

      Thailand May 16, 2015 at 7:40 AM

      We'll be arriving in Thailand on June 17th (about a month from now) and spending several days in Bangkok with a full three weeks in the country. We have a hotel in Bangkok, but beyond that, we don't yet have any travel or hotel reservations. I've been busy, but also hesitating to make exact plans because of weather. We'd like to go north to Chang Mai area for about a week, and then south to islands, Andaman coast and gulf coast for about a week. Is it best to travel by air, and if so, do I need to make domestic flight reservations in advance? Any recommendations on airlines to use? What about buses and trains? June -July are low seasons? Do I need to make hotel reservations in advance to get nice places at this time of year? Any recommendations regarding where to go to avoid all-day rainstorms and have some fun in the sun? Thanks.

      Good time to ride Segway in the city?

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now Dec 10, 2014 at 5:55 PM

      We (2 pax) plan to take the Segway Tour on Sunday (10th Jan) but are not sure which time is better?
      1. 13:00-16:00 (3 hours)
      2. 16:00-18:00 (2 hours)
      Issues under consideration are traffic and especially, temperature..

      It'll be good to do the 3 hours after lunch then hang around until the night market starts around 17:30 but I'm worried it will be quite warm at that time. Thus, is it better if we take the 16:00 2 hours slot? Would it be cooler? I checked axact date for Jan 2014 and it topped at 33'C!! I don't like heat much :))

      Hi Im going to Chiang Mai for a couple of days and I want to book one tour for each day. I will arrive by plane near 6pm. Do you thing it will be possible to book the tours at that time for the next 2 days?
      A friend told me it is ok to do it at the airport, but what do you think?
      I will try to get the tour for the Golden Triangle, the tribes, hot springs, and the White Temple. And the next day the Elephant riding, rafting, orchid farm, long neck village.
      How much do you think I should pay for each one? I have been checking prices in the net and I found the same tour in one place for 2500 bahts and in another place 1200. Do you think I could get something cheaper if I do it directly at the airport travel agencies?

      Hi fellows,

      My family and me (5) are going to be in Chiang Mai next January.
      We'll spend 4 nights there, and I need help to decide where to stay.

      I have identified two main locations. The first one is "inside" the old city (De Lanna - Tamarind Village - Sirilanna). The other area might be near the night market, one hotel being on the east margin of the river (Rimping Village), another on the west margin (Dusit D2). I would really love to be in the Rimping Village, but I am afraid that going from there to the city centre to have dinner or to roam around the market at night might be "complicated/dangerous/etc"

      Considering a week in Chiang Mai, mid August. I realise it's wet season, but mid month on the long range forecast doesn't look like 24/7 rain!
      I took my daughter to Ao Nang last July, keen to go somewhere a bit different. CM looks like it has quite a bit to offer kids. Thinking zoo, tigers, elephants, markets, temple, maybe visit a village nearby. Is it feasible to visit a local preschool or orphanage, or should we stick with parks?
      Also after accommodation suggestions. Would like a pool that's not freezing. Hot water in the bathroom. Wi-fi. Verandah/balcony so I can put her to bed and stay up a little right nearby.
      Thanks in advance :)
