      6-days to play

      Bangkok Sep 25, 2016 at 5:11 AM

      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 :( 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.

    • Are there more backpackers in Sukhumvit area or Khao san? Any bar crawls Bangkok?

      Bangkok Oct 13, 2016 at 2:03 AM

      Hi guys,

      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 which offers inductions in Bangkok but to meet people on the go..

      Thank in advance for any help :-))

      How dangerous is it to get to Umphang ?

      by soundchaseruk Online Now Jan 7, 2011 at 5:29 AM

      I have read my Rough guide and see comments on Youtube videos that the road to Umphang is pretty dangerous, although spectacular.

      I am going mid May so is it a safe journet to make ?

      The area certainly looks well of the main tourist tracks which appeals to me.

      Trecking tours to Thi Lo Su waterfall

      by christine.j Online Now Feb 6, 2006 at 9:14 AM

      And another question, there might be even more to come.
      My son was looking for trecking tours to the Thi Lo Su waterfall, but the only ones he found were 10 day tours. He won't have enough time for this. Are there any trecking tours to the waterfall and the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary that are only 3 or 4 days?
      Can he book these tours in Umphang?
      The tours he read about consisted of trecking for a short distance, then relaxing for several hours. Are these tours so exhausting that you need to relax after one or two miles?
      Once again, I'd appreciate any information. Thank you.

    • Trekking with kids

      by jbslc Online Now Oct 3, 2004 at 11:32 PM

      I will traveling with my family to Thailand in June and am trying to select the best trekking location. We would like to get off the beaten track a bit but will be traveling with our kids ages 6&8. They are good travelers and pretty good hikers but we are concerned that perhaps Umphang is too difficult. Any input? Thanks.
