      King's Burial

      Bangkok Jan 23, 2017 at 3:26 PM

      I was told that the king is about to be buried or cremated this or next week. Is this true? I also heard everyone must wear dark, black, clothes to show respect to the king? So how far is this going? I am sure we will need to dress appropriately at the grand palace, but the travel tour leader that we talked to by phone said respectful clothes are required throughout Thailand. In the past, tourist areas were exempt from this. What places are covered by this? Thanks!

      Cha-Am Hotels

      by e_mycroft Online Now Dec 25, 2014 at 9:39 AM

      Anyone stayed in Cha-Am recently? There's so many hotels I don't know where to start! We need somewhere near to the beach and near to a choice of restaurants, but quiet overnight, about £35-£40 for a double.

      I've been looking at the Golden Guesthouse, which is incredibly cheap (700Bt) but gets very good reviews, all bar one that says it's next to or above some very noisy late night bars; anyone stayed there?

    • 2-3 month rental of apartment..

      by Oulund Online Now Sep 26, 2014 at 3:47 AM

      It is probably a bit too early to ask for help in regards to renting an apartment 2 month in advance but I will try anyway. I am thinking of spending 2-3 month in Cha-Am or somewhere by the sea starting at the end of November. I am looking for a place that cost around 6.000 B pr. Month. The best thing will probably be to search and find when I arrive. I am sure most of you will tell me same thing. I just do like to plan a bit ahead as I will have to work from day one. This brings me to my first question. My work is through an internet connection. I will need to send and receive heavy files and make phone calls. Is hi-speed connection available in apartments in general and are they stable? My working hours will be between 2 pm and 11 pm. For this reason I am also looking for a quiet place. It would also be nice to be located not too far from the beach/sea. Is all of my wishes at all possible? I would really appreciate if someone would take a few minutes to give me a response. Maybe even a few suggestions… All the best to all of you!

    • Cha Am beach massage

      by keefos Online Now Aug 16, 2009 at 11:30 AM

      There used to be a few places where you could get food drink and a massage, on the beach, just along from the Regent Hotel.
      When we stayed at the Regent in 2005 & 2007, we used to regularly visit one of these.
      Unfortunately when we went again earlier this year, they were not there anymore.

      The ladies that worked there were very friendly, and we all got on really well with them. We can remember the names of two of them - they were called Ruby and Pen.
      We will be back in the area next April, and are wondering if anybody knows where they are now working?

    • Getting to Cha-am from Bangkok

      by nixiak Online Now Feb 17, 2008 at 8:44 AM

      Hi Wann,

      Regarding your post on "Train to Cha-am", I just like to check with you.

      1. How do I identify a fast train or slow train when I board the train at Hua Lamphong Railway Station?

      2. What are the timing intervals for trains or buses leaving from Bangkok to Cha-am? The internet links provided at your posting are invalid

      Thanks for your help

      Hi there,

      I've just seen a really good deal to Cha-am. I have been to Thailand before but just Bangkok and Koh Samui. What's Cha-am like? I'll be going with my fiance, we enjoy chilling out on nice peaceful beaches, snorkelling as well as exploring the local area by car or foot.

      Can anyone give me any info on Cha-am? Is it important to stay in a particular area? Also, is there a good time of year to go?

      Thank you so much... Sally x
