    • Best area to Stay for 4/5 days

      Bangkok Sep 3, 2014 at 5:30 AM

      Next January me and my family will spend 4/5 days in Bangkok. We will be there in two different dates. First when we arrive to Thailand, we'll spend 3 days, and before departing back home, 1 or 2 more days.

      I am looking for Hotels and have doubts as to where to stay between two different Hotels/areas.
      One is the Mayfair Marriott Executive Apartments (60 Soi Langsuan, Lumpini, Pathumwan)

      The other one is the Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn (33/1 South Sathorn Road Yannawa, Sathorn)

      Both have more or less the same price and good reviews.

      I would like to receive your opinions as to where is the best area to be, taking into account what I am going to visit during those days: 1) First day: Royal Palace, Emerald Buda, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Wat Chana Songkrham, 2) 2nd day will be Sunday, so I am planning to go to Chatuchak Market in the morning, and to some Mall (Siam Paragon - MBK Center) to satisfy my familie's desire to do some buying....3) 3rd day going to Ayuttaha

      Last 1 or 2 days before coming home I would like to visit what you guys can recommend me to do!

      It is a roundtrip Penang - Chiang Mai - Penang flight with connecting flight in Bangkok by the same airlines. When come back, I have many choices whether to make the connection in hurry in within 1 hour, or 4-6 hours that allow me to only stay in Bangkok airport area until 23 hours and 26 hours that allow me to have one night stay in Bangkok.
      I would mostly chose to have one 1 day 1 night layover in Bangkok. Arrival 2035 and departure 1945 the next day.
      Please suggest a one day itinerary from arrival until departure, I prefer market, temple, river cruise but not night life and the best location to stay. Thank you very much.

      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 (good-times-travel.com/safari...
      - spa experience at Suan Nanachaat (http://www.suan-nanachaat.com) --> 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 ?

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?
