Has anyone got any suggestions please on where I should go? Thanks
Hi, am travelling to Koh lipe this coming Friday 21 Oct 2016.
We had book all the speed boat and accommodation there
Just checking in the weather there now as I see is still raining season there and high tide at peneng.
May I know will this affect the travel and how bad it can be? Normally will the rain last long?
I've booked a flight to Bangkok mid Jan 2017 to start a 3 month long trip to SE Asia visiting Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.
It's my first time backpacking and I am travelling alone. I have been searching the internet for Facebook groups and forums where I can meet other backpackers to chat with before I leave. What is the best way to meet other backpackers in Bangkok? I can't really afford a planned tour with the big companies and would prefer my freedom. What are the best bars / hostels to meet other backpackers in Bangkok who are solo? Are there more backpackers in Sukhumvit area or Khao san? Is there any bar crawls I go on to get chatting to people? I've came across a website introbackpacking.com which offers inductions in Bangkok but to meet people on the go..
Thank in advance for any help :-))

We're a ~40-ish couple, I've traveled a lot around the globe. I've never been outside of the airport in Thailand. We have 6 full days in Bangkok (maybe 5 1/2 since we arrive very late and need some rest after 3 flights from US). I've checked many of the major travel sites (TA, LP, T&L, VisitThailand, etc), the forums here, the itinerary page here, etc. I've found a few recommended must-do's: Ayutthya, Chatuchak Weekend Market, Grand Palace, reclining Buddha/Wat Pho, floating market, Chinatown, Patpong or Suan Luum Night Bazar, and we want to do a 1/2 day cooking school (I see a lot of recommendations on this too). Now it's time to start to put it all together - an itinerary with places to stay, transportation, etc. I want to come up with a general itinerary (even restaurants though we will work with HappyCow on this as we'll both be eating vegetarian). I saw "HOT! HOT! HOT! This was BANGKOK!" - Bangkok by balhannah and I'm even more inspired to plan this better than my previous trips to other places. The trip is about 10 days away (I booked just a few days ago). We love to have local experiences when/where possible rather than just tourist stuff but I realize our time is short in Bangkok. Our trip is in early October so I believe it's not bad as far as weather is concerned.
First, from the airport, do you recommend taxi, Uber, train?
Next, what parts of the city should I look at for hotels? I will figure out the hotel from there as my searching is complex with various variables. However, I welcome recommendations.
Is tuk tuk/train the best way to travel around the city?
Day 1 (Thursday) should be something light and easy since we arrive at midnight the night before.
Day 2 (Friday) - Buddha?
Day 3 (Saturday) - weekend market?
Day 4 (Sunday) - other weekend market (floating?)
Day 5 (Monday) - cooking class +
Day 6 (Tuesday) -
Day 7 - go home :( ...to airport via Uber?
I know there's a lot here. I welcome any and all thoughts including a single tip all the way through suggested itineraries. I'm grateful for your time - thank you.

We are going to stay there only 3 days so could anybody tell us if temples and shopping centers are open on 5th December? If not, perhaps we have to change our planning bacause only 2 days....
Thank you. Best regards.

Hi, I am flying into Bangkok, then flying out of Bangkok 3 1/2 months afterward. My plan is to travel in Thailand for 60 days, then travel to Cambodia, Laos, and maybe Myamar for the rest of the time before returning to Bangkok to catch my flight home. I am a US Citizen
So . . . I might have to criss-cross Thailand to get to these different countries after the 60 day visa is expired. I know I can extend that visa for 30 days so that takes care of 3 months, but when I return to Thailand for another country to get my flight can I get some kind of visa at the border to stay for a few days to catch my flight?
Not interested in fishing the fish farms and stocked ponds,but the reservoirs and lakes and rivers. If anyone has fished here please let me know all of the particulars. What are you fishing with,catching, location, shore or renting a boat, baits, etc. Avid fisherman here,I know there are fish in these places, taking my pole this trip and hoping to explore a bit. I will be allover the north and west mostly, not as much the north east and east. Unless I hear there is super fishing!
Travel smart, travel a lot! And fish!

Would I have enough time to transfer between airports if my flight into BKK lands at 05:45 and my flight out of DMK is at 10:50. I know that deplaning, the queues at immigration are a lottery as I have flown into BKK on numerous occasions, it is really the transfer that I need advice on as I've not done this part before.
I am wanting to spend 6 months in Thailand, but aware that you can only get a 60 day tourist visa. If i cross the border to Burma for a couple of weeks, can you then get another 60 day visa? I am sure there are some loop holes but just want to be sure. Does anyone have any advice?
Hello Phi Phi experts!
We will be staying on the island for a few nights at Cliff Resort and Zeavola.
Can anyone give recommended providers/companies which can offer
- a comfortable day cruise from PP. Proper lunch and drinks if possible.
- a cruise to Koh Racha Yai (is it too far?)
- a private speedboat to Krabi airport from Zeavola
I am planning to travel to Phi Phi islands in Thailand am interested in doing some shopping and water activities although I need an advice about good hotels with some good rates
Hi guys! Would like to ask for your help/suggestion... we'll be going to Bangkok this November 4days, any suggestions on places to visit and must see and also hotel? I heard the shopping area is in Pratunam....
I really appreciate any advice you can give. thank you!
Am going to Bangkok on 14th- 16th Nov with a group of 9 members. I will be visiting Grand Palace, China town, Chao Phraya River. Please suggest any other places that I could include.
Also I would like to know suggestions for stay, either hotels or apartments and in which area please.
My wife and I are planning to go to Thailand in Nov 2016 for 2 months.
I was looking at short term rentals and came across a range of rental quotes.
We want a 2 BR condo or apartment in a locality with easy access to transportation
We are not looking for deluxe cottages, but something clean & wholesome, with amenities
In a complex called Metro Park, I saw a 2 BR unit for about 30,000 Bahts a month
I dont know if the price is right or if Pasi-Jaroen District of Bangkok is Pricey
What is a reasonable rent for 1-2 BR apartment, with Kitchen, Gym, WiFi, Laundry etc
Which are some of the moderate sections of Bangkok that are well connected
I prefer to live in areas that has local flavor but which offers all modern amenities
Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help
Hi I will be in Pattaya next week, wondering how's everything there and are tourist really tense right now?
I am leaving for Thailand Sept 7. My original plan to explore Thailand in Sept then head to Maylasia in October however my plans are extremely fluid. Since I will be traveling alone I am somewhat concerned about safety especially with certain recent events if anyone could share a little knowledge or even some better insight into what's going on that would be great. Also any ideas as far as unique "non-tourist" stops I would really like to get off the beaten path and explore. Thank you!
