      Where to stay, what to do and weather in July?

      Bangkok Yesterday

      I am looking at 3-4 nights in Bangkok in July with my partner and teenage son.

      Any suggestions on areas to stay with easy access to transport and western eateries (Autistic son will not eat non western food!).

      We are more than happy with Ibis, Holiday Inn type chains but open to alternatives too. I have booked the Rembradt many times but I am trying to keep costs down without cost to standard.

      Any suggestions on what to do would also be great - we have temples, floating market on the list and it has been suggested that we do the River Kwai trip too, oh and a Tiger Temple but I know nothing of this.

      We love to shop and explore cultures, happy to take our son to see ladyboys etc - we are very open minded and don't hide him from the world.

    • 3 days at Bangkok - advice

      Bangkok Yesterday

      Hi , I am travelling to Bangkok from Singapore for couple of days arriving BKK on 25 th March and returning back to Dubai on 28 th 3 pm. I will reach BKK around 2 pm and expected to be out by 3 -3.30 and planning to catch a city line raillink from airport and then the bts Sky train to ploen chit to my hotel Majestic grande. Next day I am planning the Temple trips in the morning.
      1.Please advice the best time and way to go to the temple? Nana to silom to takin and then river appears to be the best from the various answers in the site?
      2. How long it will take to cover the temples and grand palace?
      3. what else I can do on that day ? Or the temple hoping and palace itself is too much for a day?
      4 any advice for the next day I e 27 th Marching Bangkok or for a short side trip? No pan to tiger temple or ayuthaya anyway, but like to go floating market if it's not just a touristy thing and possible.
      5 on 28 th March , I am flying back to dubai by 3 pm flight. Being a Saturday how early I should start from sukhumvit hotel and what is the best mode of transportation to airport ? Same bts+ city lane or taxi?
      I am a solo traveller.

It is just a small wedding on the beach and for after the meal we want a singer/guitarist to play (background music and so people can have a dance, new music and classics). Our previous entertainer is unable to attend and wondered if there is anyone you can recommend? Your help is very much appreciated.

      My fiancee and I would really like to give ourselves a whole day at Erawan Falls and so we decided to stay overnight at the National Park. My question, however, is how early can we get back to Bangkok the next day. Our flight leaves at 1 pm and I think the earliest bus to leave Erawan Falls is 8 am? Are there any earlier travel options from Erawan falls back to Bangkok?

      Me & my boyfriend are travelling trough thailand. Right now located in Kanchanabury for a couple of days.
      After this we want to travel south. First option was to take the train and hop off at the coastal cities such as Hua Hin and chumphon. After some research those places aren't much recommended as in non touristic and dirty... (anyone more infor regarding this?)
      So we are thinking about skipping that and going straight down to Surat Thani to go to Ko Samui. What is the best, easyerst, fasted or cheapest way to go from kanchanaburi to Sutar Thani?
      Go to bangkok or ratchaburi first? take bus? take night train?....

      Need help organising 2 days in Kanchanaburi - URGENT

      by ellyse Online Now Jan 21, 2011 at 9:35 PM

      My friend and I, both 20-something Asian females, will be spending 2 days in Kanchanaburi next week, on Thu-Fri 27th-28th Jan.
      We will be starting and ending in Bangkok, and plan to take bus there and back, unless we get a tour that includes transfer both ways.
      We have no problem with long days, though I'm not too physically fit.
      We speak Mandarin Chinese and English, and probably the most basic Thai greetings. We know a smattering of other languages, but which would probably be of no use here!
      We are students, but can afford to splurge a little, so hopefully the entire thing is between budget and mid-range prices.

      Here are the sights that I'd like to visit, in order of preference:
      - Thailand-Burma Railway Centre
      - Hellfire Pass & Museum
      - the bridge (obviously!)
      - ride on Death Railway (just the most scenic/memorable part will do)
      - twilight elephant experience (
      - spa experience at Suan Nanachaat ( --> couple of hours will do
      - Erawan Falls (more for Emily's sake than mine)
      - floating market
      I will happily skip Erawan Falls and the floating market if time is too tight to allow it.

      How should I arrange the rest of the sightseeing, in the time I have available?
      I presume it would be best for me to arrange it as a package -- how much would it roughly cost? If anyone has had good tour operators that they've used before, please feel free to recommend them.

      Thanks in advance for all replies! :-)

      Exploring the Kanchanaburi region on the cheap !!

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Dec 1, 2010 at 1:19 AM

      With 2 weeks in Thailand I have almost decided to have a week in the south and a week around BKK and Kanchanaburi. I am referrring to my ROUGH GUIDE for ideas and came across 2 places where visitors can stay and buy trips. All seems very nice but at a price. Sure it would be good to travel on the railway, wash elephants in the river, go rafting and see the inner jungle and meet "locals" but its all at a price.

      I would love to do these things by myself but fear that some things cannot be seen/done as a single traveller.

      If someone could look at these two websites and tell me if they are expensive and can the trips be done with a local Thai friend or by myself ?

      I would like to go to Kanchanaburi for one night and two days, and see the best it has to offer. Can anyone recommend a value for money tour? Just don't want to end up in a packed van and shuttled lifelessly from place to place.

      Hi there! I have a few major questions:

      1) I am interested in taking a bus from Kanchanaburi to Erawan around 10:30AM. Then, I was hoping to get to the Namtok train station from Erawan. Then, I was planning on taking the Death Railway train on the 3:15PM train, back to Kanchanaburi. Does anyone know if there is a bus, taxi, or tuktuk from Erawan to Namtok? Also, how much will it cost and how long will it take?

      2) I have been trying to find an elephant trekking company in Kan, but to no avail! Everything seems to be packaged w/ a tour operator! Is there a way to do an elephant trek a la carte? What companies will do this? Do you know how early they start?

      Thanks for your help!!! :)
