      Snorkling and diving Easy transport to Bangkok?

      Thailand Feb 22, 2015 at 10:33 PM

      Hi,

      Gonna be in Hong Kong for work and want to end my trip with a 4-5 day getaway to a gorgeous beach in Thailand. Two main criteria, needs to be adjacent to a great beach with access to snorkeling/diving, and a decent room with A/C. Ya, I'm a pansy and need comfort, I admit it.

      Going in mid-May. I hope I can take a shuttle/bus/cab/ferry from Bangkok that is no more than a couple hours. I've never been to Thailand and have no idea of what transportation is available. Do I need to get on a smaller plane and take another plane ride to this? Well maybe someone has a good suggestion before I resort to that.

      Icing on the cake would be a suggestion for a dive company near this fantasy area.

      Thanks!

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

      Bangkok Feb 28, 2015 at 5:28 PM

      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.

      Just Realized My Passport is 180 Days exactly before leaving the Country, What to do :(

      Thailand Feb 13, 2015 at 6:23 AM

      Hi,

      I know before you jumped to conclusion what were you think before, i was in a very bad and stressed moment, for 2 months instant and non stops problems, i was so focused with so many things happening around me and i missed this, i book a flight for a short vacation to thailand saving me from further depression and doing something stupid with my life, all is booked, ticket, hotels, tours all set

      Flight leaving my country Indonesia 15th February, and its just 5 days, now when i tried to web check in, i was denied and informed your passport is expired and you can't check in, so this is the irony, today is friday even if i want to do a super express passport remake tomorrow is saturday, so no immigration office open, and flight leaving on sunday, i was travelling with friend and he is from a different city, i was expected to guide since i have better understanding with direction, and at least basic english to communicate

      I am seriously sad with this, i was hoping this is at least helping me feeling better with my situation and when i am doing this i am very shocked about my stupidity and ignorance in the same time

      Now what am i supposed to do?

      1.Just showed up in airport? trying my luck? i read few forums in tripadvisor, actually many of them denied on board, even if one manage, they were deported immediately from immigrant office in thailand

      2. Just accept it, and take a deep breath, i got way too many problems already anyway, what is one more right... :(

      Still trying to convince my friend he shouldn't cancel all his trip because of my lack of attention for important details

      Visa question

      After going round and round and nothing things about visas (or not) the Thai embassy says or on the different visa sites are still not clear in my somewhat tired brain. I will enter Thailand by plane on the 8th February. I will leave Thailand by train on the 15th February to Laos I will re-enter Thailand by train on the 1st March I will leave Thailand again by plane on the 3rd March I know I'll get a 30 day entry stamp upon entering. But as I am leaving Thailand for about 2 weeks do I need to get "stamped" out to be able to get back in again, although this all takes place within the 30 days. Thanks in advance to any kind soul that can put my brain to rest.

      I'm planning to arrive Dan Sai district in Loei on 19th Dec 2013 around 2am in the wee hours of the morning. Baan Chanphu seems to be a very popular motel but does anyone has the contact number? There are many hotel booking sites from which I can book a room online but no contact number. I may be a wee bit paranoid but this is just a small motel, not a proper hotel, so I'm concern that nobody will be at the counter, if there is a counter to begin with, to hand me the keys to my room at 2am, so I got to call and make sure.

      BAAN CHAYNA (SURIN BEACH, PHUKET) HOW TO

      Surin Mar 15, 2013 at 1:55 AM

      A spur of the moment decision to fly to Phuket next month (April 2013) with my 13 yr old daughter, a weekend getaway if I may say and an advance birthday gift for her. It was a preference to stay a little bit farther away from the crowd in Patong Beach, I was actually hoping we can get a hotel in Karon/Kata area, but next thing I know I was already booking BAAN CHAYNA HOTEL/RESORT which is located in SURIN BEACH. I know nothing about the place and so as most of my friends who’s gone through a Phuket trip as most of them stayed in either Patong or Kata areas.

      Has anyone of you stayed in this hotel before? They have good reviews, that I know, but I am more worried about transfers to and fro, how accessible is the place to where the piers are to start off the island tours? It was a bit of a challenge to do research online as most of the tourists sharing their experiences mostly stayed in the most commonly known tourist areas (Patong/Kata/Karon) and not Surin. HELP!
