    • Khao Sok National Park

      Thailand Apr 16, 2014 at 1:40 PM

      I am going to be in Phuket toward the end of this month and want to go to Khao Sok National park for 2 days. I found a few places to stay near by. What is the best way to get there? Any recommended tour companies to use while in the park?

      I am also trying to figure out the best way to do this, because after leaving Khao sok I need to fly to BKK, I suppose flying out of Surat Thiani would be best. Given all the driving I need to do, that is why I think maybe renting a car will be best? I will be with one other person.

    • Suggestions about Khao Yai National Park?

      Prachin Buri Apr 1, 2014 at 9:17 PM

      Hello! We are planning on doing a day trip from BKK to Khao Yai NP. I've heard about some of the guided tours, and the one I've seen most recommended is Greenleaf. Does anybody have any experience getting there and/or getting around the NP? Is a tour worth the 1500 B? Is it better to rent a motorbike to see the NP? Is there a particular route we should take from BKK (bus, van, etc)?

      Thanks!

    • Bus and train timetable in Thailand

      Thailand Apr 14, 2014 at 6:24 AM

      Does anyone know the train and bus times coming from Bangkok to get between River Kwai, Ayutthaya and Pak Chong Khao Yai National Park ?.

      We are planning to stay in each of those destinations. We need to be in Pak Chong by 2.30pm for the afternoon tour. We don't mind which we do first - River Kwai or Khao Yai and we can fit Ayutthaya in either way as we then want to go to Sukhathai.

      This is also proving to be a slow and complicated train trip arriving finally in Sukhathai around 10pm. Is there a more direct route bus trip to Sukhathai as I have had trouble finding this out on the web?

      Visa question

      Nong Khai Dec 17, 2013 at 8:07 AM

      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.

      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!
