This is our 8th visit to Phuket but will be a first fishing trip in Phuket. My son age 10 has requested for me to bring him to one. He enjoyed his Australia's deep sea fishing last Nov. The problem is daddy (and daughter) will not been tagging along as he is prone to sea sickness unless it is a guaranteed not on rough seas. He is fine with river fishing which we went as a family prior to the deep sea fishing. Hence, it does not make sense for two of us to charter a batch or catamaran. I heard we can just go to Rawai or Ao Pa Pier to look for fisherman to take us out.
Appreciate any advice and suggestion. We will arrive on 31/5 morn and depart 03/6 night . We have booked a rental car.
Hi i'm planning on visiting koh tao and koh samui in the summer for 2 weeks.
I haven't really decided which one I want to stay longer for in but I think it's going to be koh tao. Anyway's I was wondering where should I stay? I would like a little bit of luxury because everything there is so cheap, something close to the beach and that has lots of amenities.
A resort, villa or hotel, whatever! Where have you stayed? What's it like? Also is it wheelchair accessible?
(please include links)
Hi, I have a sponsored child of 10-year old living in the Mae Ai district (don't know where it is). I want to send her gift. What do you think is appropraite? I have some ideas in mind:
1. Drawing book with cartoon (but she may not familiar with the characters?)
2. Folding papers (would paper be something rare that should be used for writing instead of being "wastered" to fold?)
3. stickers (again, should I get her cartoon or just anything cute?)
I want to avoid hard feeling of others but still give out something that can cheer up kids whom they enjoy. Thanks.
We will be in Pattaya midway during our two week trip to Asia in July And will need to do laundry. I emailed the hard rock to see if they do laundry, but also wanted to see if there are any laundry places close by the hard rock, don't want to drag laundry around.
Can anyone give me information about bus travel between hat yai and ranong? Does it have to be booked through a travel agent? If so can I have a name, address and telephone number? Or can I get tickets at the bus station? If so, where is this?
Hope you can help.
Hi, has anyone been on the Phuket Food Tour (http://phuketfoodtours.com)? I can't seem to find any reviews or recommendations for this company and am concerned that it is not a reputable company.
Does anyone have any recommendations for other food tours in Phuket?
Response will be much appreciated.

I am off to Phuket for 4 days by the first week of June. I see that Patong is where the night life is, and obviously more crowded. I was thinking of staying in Patong for couple of nights and couple of nights in Karon or Kata, so I can enjoy a bit of the beachlife too.
Could you recommend some places to stay in Patong, and also some in Karon or Kata?
I would also like to know if there are any places where I could do snorkelling, parasailing, etc near Karon or Kate?
This may sound crazy - however, my friend and I live in the US where we both own Yamaha waverunners. We have been in Laos and Thailand recently and we are now interested in buying two new waverunners, in Thailand/Laos, and traveling down the Mekong River from the Golden Triangle to Mukdahon. (flexible on locations actually)
We would want to purchase the waverunners - take the trip - and then sell them back as used. We would also be looking to hire a Yamaha mechanic to try and follow along our trip with a truck with a double waverunner trailer in case we need to have repairs - or need to pull the boats out of the water. Do you know of anyone that has done this? Would it be allowed?
Not even sure where to look to find out about this.
Thanks in advance.
I am planning a 16 day trip in Thailand. I will start in Bangkok and head towards south to Khao Sok National Park. My final destination will be koh samui to relax and enjoy my last couple of days.
I want to have a few stops between Bangkok and Khao Sok National Park. What would u recommend me? I want to experience some local stuff, nature, hiking, beaches, motorcycling.
I take into consideration to stop at Phetchaburi and Hua Hin. What u guys can recommend me?
Thanks a lot in advance.
A friend and I will be travelling throughout southeast Asia this summer. He and I are both climbers and plan on spending about a week or so climbing in the Krabi area. It would be impossible for us to go to Thialand and not climb, however he and I dont want to carry a rope around for seven weeks. Is there anywhere that will rent ropes in Krabi? I know about the guided climbing and that it is relatively cheap , but that hurts my pride a little. I would rather be independent and have the option to multipitch. Also is it common to find people climbing in Krabi with a rope looking for a belay partner?
I'm planning on being in Phuket at the end of this month. I was just wondering if there is anyone else who is planning a trip out there around the same time. I think it would be very interesting to party in Thailand with people from around the world.
Odd question but I am coming to Pattaya end of this week. I also plan to get myself checked for STDs.
Which hospital / clinics you recommend who specialize in this and have doctors speaking English.i will be there for 5 days and will stay close to walking street.
On a similar note would love to meet friends as I am a lone traveller ( 35 Male)
Hi I have kids under 5 travelled more than 24 hrs to see the nicest beaches in Thailand as you see in movies. However, I heard patong is crowded and loud. I am not necessarily looking for my own spot but not where there is bustling loud music and street vendors trampling over you either. What is a good suggestion, not too expensive. Some tourists told me to stay in chalong but then how to get to beaches?
Please help with following.
I am going to spend 5 days in Bangkok before continuing my trip to Phuket.
I am planning 1 one day tour to Ayutthaya, and also would like to visit Damnoen Saduak floating market.
I know it is touristic, but I have never seen anything like this.
What would be the best option:
-to make a one day trip from Bangkok
-or, go to Ratchaburi late evening, to sleep there, visit the market early morning, look around in Ratchabury (does it worh a visit? ) and continue my trip with a night train to Surat Thani?
By the way, which is better to Phuket: train and bus, or direct bus?
Thanks for any comments
