      King's Burial

      Bangkok 9 hours ago

      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!

      Night time temperatures in March

      Thailand 19 hours ago

      Hi there,

      I will be in Thailand for 2 weeks from 3rd March. Bangkok, Khao Sok National Park and Ko Yao Yai island in the South. I know the days will be hot, I'm wondering how cold it gets at night. Would rather not bring a bulky jacket as I'm backpacking and trying to pack as light as possible. Will I get away with a light sweater?

      Thanks for any answers :)

    • Transport from Laos border

      by johntstone57 Online Now Jun 21, 2011 at 12:17 AM

      We are arriving by boat at border & want to get a taxi to Anantara.

      Hotel are quoting £60. Can we rely on finding a taxi that will take us on arrival at border? Is there another reliable way of prebooking?

      Whilst we are at Anantara are there restaurants nearby or will we have to eat in hotel?

      Will taxis be available to hire for a days sightseeing? Recommended sights nearby - we are going on to Chiang Rai & Mai after.

      Thanks for any info
