      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!

      Night time temperatures in March

      Thailand Jan 23, 2017 at 6:08 AM

      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 :)

      route from Mae Hong Son to Chiang Mai

      by hillelarkin Online Now Jan 22, 2015 at 10:00 PM

      I have to decide about the route from Mae Hong Son to Chiang Mai. The most popular is via Doi Inthanon (almost 7 hrs drive) but I have already been there couple of years ago. The alternative I had found out is via Mae Sariang (about 6 hrs drive) and via Mae Chaem (about 7 hrs drive). I have hired a car+ driver with cawho is familiar with the roads.
      Any suggestion which route is more interesting sightseeing wise, will be appreciated.

    • Public transport Chiang Mai - Mae Hong Son - Chiang Mai

      by baldikan Online Now Nov 19, 2013 at 12:32 AM

      Dear all, my wife and I are planning to visit Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son this December. We will arrive by plane in CM at 12.30 in December 25, and fly back home from Chiang Mai at 13.20 in December 28. I understand that distance between CM and MHS is far enough, but unfortunately we an not take flight from CM to MHS and return due to tight budget. Is there any public transportation that can suit our flight schedule? If we have to stay 1 night in CM is OK, but we prefer to do it on the last night to make sure we will not miss our flight back. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

    • Mae Hong Son to Pai

      by Slho Online Now Sep 13, 2013 at 4:52 AM

      I bought flight tickets from Chiangmai to Mae Hong Son by mistake, in fact my destination is Pai! Understanding that it may take a few hours from MHS to Pai by van, shall I give up the flight and take a van from Chiangmai to Pai instead? Or will it be easy to hire a taxi from MHS to Pai and approx how much will it cost?

    • Hotel Suggestions?

      by cl3150 Online Now Dec 6, 2008 at 5:38 AM

      My wife and I are going to be in Mae Hong Son in earlt February and would like to get some suggestions for a nice, well-located hotel. Looking on the Internet, the Imperial Tara Mae Hong Son, the Fern and the Quarter all look nice. If anyone has actually stayed at any of these and can offer some first-hand feed-back, that would help a lot. If there are other places that you would suggest, please do that as well.
