hi i am visiting krabi in november and would like to stay a couple of nights somewhere else besides phi phi any sugestions as have to travel back to krabi so not too far
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!
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 :)

Hello, I am planning to visit Bangkok for Songkran 2017 (April 13-16) and I will be traveling alone.. Are there any locals on here that live there or will be there around that time that could possibly show me around?
How's the weather in the south of Thailand ? I Wanted to go to Krabi but it's seems to be raining everywhere in the whole south ??
I've a special demand this time to visit Thailand. I'm french if it's not written on my page and I'm renewing my driving licence after I lost it in a train... The administration in INCREDIBLY slow and I'm not sure if my national french driving licence will be ready on time before I go to Thailand... Plus if I have to make an INTERNATIONAL driving licence which is going to take 2 extra weeks... Needless to say I'm in a hurry.
I know it's not legal to use only my FRENCH driving licence (if I've it on time!) but I wanted to rent a car (through the agency Thai Rent A Car for example)... But do you know if those rental cars companies ask to see your INTERNATIONAL driving licence at the offices when you come to get the car or is it ok if you just show your own national driving licence?
I'm not talking about the fines if I encounter a picky Thai policeman, it's ok I can deal with it. But can I rent a car in Thailand simply with my NATIONAL driving licence?
Thank you a lot! :)

I'm checking a flight from Shanghai to Bangkok, and the best flight I've found is operating by a company called Mesaba Airlines... An American company that stopped activity back in 2012...!
So was the company bought by a Chinese or Thai Airlines Company... or is this a trick? I really don't understand, it doesn't look trustworthy!
It's URGENT thank you :)
Hi there are 4 of us coming to Thiland in March 2017 we're trying to sort out our trip/movements but there is so much to do in such a short space of time 14-16 days
We have decided island hopping & spending 2-3 days in each place is the way forward with maybe a few more nights at the last point
We want to do the elephant sanctuary
See the baby lions
Do some scuba diving etc
Do the full moon party in march (12th) I think it is
Can anyone recommend the best places to go to, to do the above I imagine there are some shocking animal sanctuarys
We were thinking of starting at the furthest point & working our way back
Where would we fly into? How do you get to the other islands on a boat? What's the longest travelling time?
Any help/advice would be great so we can start making a plan/itinerary we're flying from the UK either Gatwick or Heathrow & then were planning on booking hotels on booking.com or air bnb
Roughly anyone that has done this type of thing how much should we be looking at money wise to do this?
I literally have no idea we're going to look at flights this week then hotel pricing & then I guess food/drinks everyday. Transport & trips
I'm going to Bangkok in January for the first time and I will be travelling alone.
I'm meeting a Thai women whom I have been talking with online for about 4-5 months..
Staying on sukhumvit rd.
I am am asking for advice on where to go and what to look out for?
Thank you for any replies!
I have never been to Thailand and i'm thinking of going there in about 12 months time or so and I was wondering what is the best time of year to travel in Thailand?
I am planning to stay 4 days in Phuket on June 2017 (maybe from 17 to 20th).
If possible I want to visit Phi Phi anda Maya, but I m concerning about monsoons.
I ve read that it gets worse on May, but I also read that june could be bad time to visit.
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?
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!
If anyone knows where I can buy some trainers I would love to hear where.
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?
