At a glance the changes that have occurred since the original summary are that -
Non visa entry by land or air can now be extended for 30 days for 1900 baht.
Its still the case that G7 passport holders get 30 days when entering by land whereas many other nationalities only get 15 days if they come by land border.
Authorities announced in August / September 2014 that they reserve the right to restrict the number of border runs those without visas can do. But not much evidence of this being…

I am going to a conference in Bangkok towards the end of Sepptember. I am a woman and I'll be alone, I want to stay a few days before the conference and tour Bangkok. I' ll appreciste very much your suggestion for 4 days.
Is it better to take a guide/driver? any recomendations?
Thanks in advance,
What can I expect when I get off the plane in Bangkok at the entry point? I'm guessing they will want my passport, but what else do i need to have on me, what questions will they ask? I'm staying for a week and I'm from the USA. This is my first time to Asia so I just want to be prepared.
Does anyone know if the French consulate in Chiang Mai issues visas? I haven't been able to find any information or a web site, only for Bangkok. I would just go there but iI'm traveling in Guatemala and hope to get this information before I return to Chiang Mai. Thanks for any help.
Husband and I are planning a trip to SE Asia (Thailand, Cambodia) OR Japan for mid-October of this year. We both actually really want to do SE Asia but are conflicted due to weather reports. Websites say October is still rainy season in Thailand - I know June July are worse - but is October not good either or does it get better by then? We're flying all the way from Canada so definitely want to be able to enjoy and do as much as we can in SE Asia which is why I'm worried if October is a…
I am staying in Chiang Mai for about a week. I have found one location to stay just outside of the old city area that is a really good price but I am told some of the streets around the area are a bit "sketchy" (interpretation by someone who lived in Chiang Mai for five years). Can someone who has recently traveled to Chiang Mai give me some feedback as to whether staying in the old town itself is really worthwhile versus just outside the walled area and walking into the city.
We will be in Chiang Mai in late November. I am intrigued by the areas further north of Chiang Mai and am considering spending a few extra days exploring that area. Can someone give me feedback as to whether it is possible to explore the area by bus, which areas they would recommend if I have three to four days to spend, whether renting a car is a better option and how roads/ driving conditions are (I have not driven in many international locations and am a bit nervous about it). Another…
