    • ATV and Rafting Phang Nga

      Phuket Aug 13, 2015 at 11:23 PM

      Hello, I am planning a trip to phuket and wish to book an ATV and rafting tour, specifically the one in the link below at Phang Nga. It seems very expensive, and I was wondering if anyone in Phuket currently (or lately) knows how much I can book this tour in phuket instead of online.
      Its 5Km white water rafting and 3hrs ATV in Phang Nga (inc transfers).

      Thank you,

    • Looking for a Koh Samui Local/Cook

      Ko Samui Aug 7, 2015 at 8:05 AM

      Where can we find a Koh Samui local who is a good cook? She/He can accompany us to the market, help buy the food, go back to the villa and show us how to cook it During the day not the evening. We want this for at least 2 times and probably 3 times per week with 2 hours, and 4 hours when going to the market.

    • Solo traveler! Please advise!

      Bangkok Yesterday


      I am flying to Bangkok on 19th September for a 5 days tour of this city.

      I have a budget of $40-50/day for the accommodation.

      I want to stay in a hotel with easy access to shopping centers for some good shopping & night clubs/red light areas (if u know what i mean) Which areas should I consider while booking an online Hotel?

      I am not much concerned about stars of the hotel but must be simple for a descent stay which facilitates Wifi access & 24/7 check-in as my flight is arriving around 7 in the evening, Any hotel suggestions?

      Secondly, I heard hostels are much cheaper than Hotels,Is it true? Do I get seperate room in a hostel?

      Is it safe to stay in hostels comparing to other hotels?

      Appreciate your early response!

      Itinerary Help Please.

      Thailand Aug 26, 2015 at 3:43 AM

      I need a bit of help choosing a destination to fit into my current itinerary. I have 17nights from October 6th-23rd

      I have created a kind of loop North to Chiang Mai and Back to Bangkok.Im struggling to find somewhere in between (Bangkok-Chiang Mai) at the start or somewhere in between (Mae sot-Bangkok) at the end of my route.


      Chiang Mai (3nights)
      Pai (3nights)
      Mae Hong Son (2nights)
      Mae Saraing(2nights)
      Mae sot-Mywaddy (3nights)


      I had thought I may have been able to fit in Khanchanaburi that area sounded beautiful but I think it would take too much time having to travel via Bangkok. Again I am not really interested in History In terms of Sukhothai or Ayutthaya. I guess im looking for somewhere with a rural feel to it. Nice scenery, somewhere you would like to go for a cycle and where the people are nice.

      I know I have been posting a lot And I really appreciate all of your comments. I May as well try and get a route sorted that I am happy with. If I had one place to add in where would you recommend.

      Bus or Train to Chiang MAi

      Thailand Yesterday

      Hey Guys, Arriving in Bangkok on the 6th October in the morning but I want to head to Chiang Mai the same day.Which would be wiser and easier to sleep on A Bus Or a Train

      I Have been doing more research on a potential Place I could fit in from Mae Sot on the Way south to Bangkok.Its Probably Between Sukhotthai,Pitsanulok or Kamphean as transport to these places is good.Umphang sounded fantastic but from what i have read there is no onward travel south so I dont think i would have the time.

      I would like to somehow get from Mae Sot south to Khanchanaburi that would be the ideal scenario. I cant find information about how to travel from Mae Sot to there.I dont know how realistic that Idea is.

      Thanks Guys Im Just putting the finishing touches to My rough route
      Thanks so much

      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.

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.
