I will to travel from Bagkok to Myanmar and I would need to have some USD in cash before my departure to Myanmar.
But I wouldn't like carrying cash with me from Europe as I will need to stay in Thailand going around for few days.
Therefore I was wondering if it is possible to withdraw from cash machines in Bangkok money in USD banknotes? any restrictions for such withdrawals.
Please share your experience.
I will be travelling by bus from Bangkok to Pak Chong to visit the Khao Yai National Park. And then I will head to Phu Ruea. Anyone know for sure that I can get a bus in Pak Chong to Phu Ruea? Thanks for your input.
In an effort to reign in all the "Is it safe" posts, I thought I would attempt to start an "Update" thread. Maybe people can refer to this thread to help decide whether they feel Bangkok is safe or not.
Let's try to find answers, or post insights, in one place.
I will open by stating that today, December 5th, locally, Bangkok is going to celebrate the King's birthday. I can't fathom anyone making any trouble during today's celebrations. However, Suthep, the self proclaimed 'leader' of the protests, has said that the fight will continue, resuming tomorrow, the 6th.
No one can predict what can or will happen All one can do is stay abreast of what is happening and make decisions based on that.
I would like to point out that there really very few hotels near any of the protest 'targets'.
Although one might get near protests, in passing, one is unlikely to be caught up in them, at least up to this point.
Drivers are most likely going to give them a wide berth.

I booked my trip to Bangkok some months ago and I did not expect demonstration to happen. Anyways, is there anyone out the in Bangkok at the moment? I heard from some Thai people that this week Thais celebrate his majesty's birthday so this should be ended before that. However, the situation is getting more intensive day after day. I would like to hear from tourists who are in the city at the moment. My trip is on Friday, December 6. Thanks a lot!!!!!
Is it safe to travel to bangkok for holiday now? Does the crisis affect areas such as pratunam where lots of tourist is there.
I am visiting Phuket with 3 other friends on Jan 2014. I am planing to go for a Phang Nga Bay/ James Bond Island/ sea caves Day Tour.
I have searched through the internet prices and it is between 1500 - 2000 TBH (with hotel transfer, lunch, snorkeling items. speed boat)
Is this the normal range for this trip? Does it get any cheaper if I book after going to phuket and meet local travel agents?

I have booked my trip to Bangkok on 6 Nov to 8 Nov. Is it safe to go now? Should I postpone my trip?
I am trying to understand the excitement behind FMP.
I have been to one last year in December and it did not impress me at all.
Music they play its just TOOO old and all i see is kids dancing on benches and jumping over ropes
Its not bad but I guess this could be done in many other places .
I am not sure if i miss to visit some unseen place on beach where all the fun , but its definitely not on the beach i expected to see.
I have seen much better and safe places to party.
Any idea why there is so much fuss about FMP ?
I am traveling to Kho phangan from 17 to 22 dec.
Every where i check i see Full Moon which is good but looks quite kiddish .
Are there any other party places around where people could hang out ?
I need to be in KL on Dec.5
I will be coming from Bangkok.
Do I have to leave on Dec.3 to get to KL on Dec.5
Sorry but Seat61 is quite confusing for me.
What is faster, by bus or by train?
And what route do I take?
Is it true that if I take the train to Butterworth, it arrives early and it doesn't leave for KL until night time?
What are the costs and how long will each journey take?
How much will it cost to go to Penang if I have a lot of free time in between?
Thank you very much.
