    • Vegetarian Food options & Logistics

      Krabi Nov 11, 2016 at 1:40 AM

      Hi All,

      I am visiting krabi for the first time with my wife in December. I had a few questions regarding food and local travel.We will be staying at a hotel at tubkaek.

      1) Bus, Taxi options which would be more convenient from tubakaek to ao nang/krabi town. We would also like to know if bus/taxi for return journey from ao nang to tubkaek would be available even late at night?

      2) Can I hire scooter for local travel and would i need an international drivers license for the same(traveling from India)

      3) Vegetarian food options in krabi town and ao nang including street food.

      4) Apart from 4 island tour and railay beach any other must visit places?

      Cheers!!

    • Package Transfer Phuket Airport +Ferry Phi Phi + Transfer to Karon

      Phuket Nov 23, 2016 at 4:11 AM

      We will arrive at Phuket Airport at 8:10 a.m. We will need a transfer to go from the airport to Rassada Pier + ferry tickets to Phi Phi tound trip + transfer the following day from Rassada Pier to Karon.
      We have seen the prices at http://www.phuketferry.com/ but it can be risky to take them on-line in advance because if the flight is delayed.... so is it easy to find any agency at the airport to contract this package? and it can be more expensive taking everything at the airport or is better buying the tickets separately? What would you recommend us?
      Thanks.

    • What can i do to make Turkish airline to refund my unused tickets

      Thailand Nov 14, 2016 at 11:02 PM

      Is there anybody who had issues with the Turkish airline and their services?
      On the 5th of August. I and my wife purchased Turkish airline flight tickets via Expedia to travel from Bangkok to Istanbul and then to Tel Aviv to return on the 15th of August from Tel Aviv to Istanbul then Bangkok
      We missed the first flight from Bangkok to Istanbul and I received a message from Expedia that Turkish airline canceled all of my 8 tickets, including tickets for the 15th of August.
      Then I and my wife purchased a new ticket on the Turkish airline website on the 6th of August to the same destination (Bangkok to Istanbul and then to Tel Aviv) in order to return on the 15th of August from Tel Aviv to Istanbul and then to Bangkok, with a total of 8 tickets.
      We used the tickets to fly from Bangkok to Istanbul but personal urgent circumstances forced on us in Istanbul airport to buy returning tickets from Istanbul to Bangkok.
      So we used only 2 tickets this time, we didn't use the remaining 6 tickets, out of the 16 tickets purchased from Turkish airline I only used two.
      to Turkish airline to refund my unused tickets. The First time I received an unintelligible reply and the second time, which is one month I wrote ago, I sent Turkish airline another message but until now I didn't receive any message.
      I wrote also to Expedia,you notice it,but this is the next story....
      So how do you think I can resolve this issue?... Any advice?

      Help with Bangkok itinerary

      Thailand Nov 21, 2016 at 3:04 AM

      I'm travelling to Thailand in March and have a bit of spare time in Bangkok. I'm already planning a day trip to Ayutthaya, is there a similar trip that can be done in a day? Would it be worth flying to Chiang Mai just for two nights? Any advice would be really appreciated!

      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.

      Thanks.
