Hi,

I'm planning to arrive to Bangkok 30 August. The same day I'm thinking to fly to Phuket for 4 nights then i'm planning to go to Malaysia/Indonesia for 7 nights and after that going back to Bangkok for 3 nights.

I know that it's raining season during september and i'm wondering if I should go to Phuket/should I go to Bangkok beaches or to another island instead?

Thanks!

I know that I, or you, can't predict the weather, however I'm looking for an island to chill at for 5-6 days. Looking online, everywhere seems that October is rainy season. We'd prefer the lowest chance of a lot of rain. We're used to periodic showers just don't want to spend all day inside.

I'm deciding between Lanta, Lipe and Chang by Cambodia. We're looking for the classic island beach getaway for some snorkeling, exploring, eating, drinking, chilling, etc.

Not attached to the above 3, but…

Hi all. I'm a solo female traveller (for the first time). I'm going to be arriving in Phuket late at night (11pm) this week and need to figure out which hostel I should stay at. I'm not super into partying but wouldn't mind somewhere more social.

I'm hoping for a place that is helpful and will set up a driver to pick me up at the airport as I e read about the scamming that occurs in the taxi business. I don't mind paying a little extra for this as I'll be arriving after a long 12 hour travel…

Also, Is it cheaper and more convenient to fly around Thailand to get to my…

My super cheap ticket has me landing in Phuket International Airport at 1AM. After getting my bags and going through immigration I imagine it will be well passed 2AM. I am debating of just passing out for 5 or 6 hours in the airport that night. What do you recommend?

I read that there really isn't any hotel shuttle transportation at that hour and the bus drivers are sleeping at home with their families. Taxis? Oh that one driver that is creepily waiting for that one lonely chick…

I am aiming to travel SEA next year but won't arrive at Thailands southern Islands and surrounding areas (Ko Samui/Ko Tao/Krabi/Railay/Ko Phi Phi etc) until mid to late June and was curious as to how much overcast or rainfall I may encounter? I heard that the monsoon season can start as early as may and it got me thinking. I know you can't give me a straight up answer as it can change from year to year but just a rough average or even previous experiences for this time of the year would be a…

Hi there, forgive me if this is in the wrong section. I am looking at booking a flight from vancouver to bangkok, and have questions about certain airlines and there connections. I will be going for 30 days with only a carry on(If that matters)

First the cheapest option, Air China with a connection in Beijing, I have heard many bad things about this. From airline notification problems, to major delays out of Beijing.

Second options, both same price but more expensive then Air China. Is China…
