    • 1st time travelling to Phuket during end June 2014 for 4 Days

      Phuket Jun 11, 2014 at 1:33 AM


      My family (total 3 pax including a 9 years old child) would be travelling to Phuket for a short vacation thus would need some valuable advices & recommendation:

      - Best area (Safe) to stay in as it is a family trip, properly can recommend the hotel or resort name.
      - Would prefer accommodation has it's own private pool but not villa as it is too huge for the 3 of us (as in also looks quite scary) - Looking for hotel or resort with private pool and definitely have to be cleaned.
      - As 1st time to Phuket, any recommended places to visit which is also suitable for kid.
      - Anyone can advise the cost of taxi from Phuket Airport to one of the beaches?
      - Places for shopping?
      - Anyone more things that I need to look-out or be aware of?

      I'm from Singapore and awaits for your response soonest.

      Thank you.

    • Krabi airport to Koh lipe Transport_ June 2014

      Ko Lipe Jun 23, 2014 at 12:09 AM

      I have planned a short trip to Koh Lipe next week.
      We will be arriving in Krabi airport at 8 pm Friday.

      After doing some research over the internet, I found
      that the journey from Krabi to Pak Bara is about 4-5 hours.

      I have to catch the boat from Pak Bara at 11.30am on Saturday.
      I would like to know the best way to reach Pak Bara in time.
      1. Is there any Minibus service available? Couldn't find their timing information anywhere.

      2. If hiring a taxi is the only option, are they available 24*7. I found one website for taxi booking, but their departure time is 8am-10am. I am not sure if this will manage to reach Pak Bara before 11.30(which seems to be the only boat per day)

      I would be grateful if anybody could provide suggestions in this regard.

      Camping at either Koh Adang or Koh Rawi

      Ko Tarutao Jun 23, 2014 at 12:20 AM

      I wish to do camping but i need more recommendations from members. If not mistake, both Ko Adang and Rawi allow foreign tourist to do camping. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

      If Ko Adang, there are ranger office, outdoor bath facility and small restaurant. Tourist can choose to rent tent or bring our own tent. True?

      If Ko Rawi, there is no facility and no tent for rent. True?

      Between these 2 islands, which island has nicer beach to camp?

      Do I need to acknowledge any office to get approval to do overnight camping?

      Similan Islands - what to do and how to get there?

      by travelinchen Online Now Jan 22, 2011 at 2:05 PM


      I think I'd really would like to go to the Similan islands from what I see on the pictures (I assume it's quiet and relaxed and not too many tourists in the beginning of March). But all I read about on the web is how great it is for diving.
      Now, since my partner doesn't dive, we probably both will do only snorkeling. So I was wondering whether snorkeling is actually worth on the Similan Islands or whether this is a rather expensive trip for only snorkeling.

      Also, to keep things as cheap as possible, we would want to stay in the terrace house on one of the islands for three days or so.

      But I couldn't exactly find out how we would get there (we'd be in Chiang Mi just before, so we would be ready to fly to Phuket)? Can anyone tell us the cheapest (while being perfectly safe) way to get there? And the easiest? ;-) Though we obviously don't want to do the liveaboard thing.

      Also, can anyone tell me difference between a zone 3 and zone 2 room?

      Thanks so much!

    • Bungalows on Ko Miang

      by eoa106 Online Now Nov 23, 2006 at 5:24 PM

      Hi there,

      I am going to stay a few days on Ko Miang in one of the bungalows there. They seem to be numbered from 1 to 20, all with the same price but varying view. When I book I have to specify the particular number of the bungalow I want to book, but I have no idea which one has the best views.

      I've read elsewhere that there's one or two bungalows with great views, but no number was given. Will anyone on here be able to help me with this? What number bungalow has the best views?
