There has been frustration expressed about the number of similar questions being asked about onward ticket complications. The idea of this thread is that it might be a one stop shop for all the common questions so in future a link might be given to it rather than having to write the same info again and again-
How do I know the info already on Thorntree about this is still current ?
The basic issues about onward tickets have changed little in the last 25 years or more. When there are any…
I would like to visit Chang Rai due to its beauty and cool weather. I am mosquito-prone-they adore me and I need to avoid being bitten; can you recommend the best month for travel to avoid them? I don't like hot weather so it would be great if it were a cool month. Thank you very much.
My husband and I will be spending a couple of weeks end November, beginning of December on Lanta and Ko Jum. I would really like to visit the Chicken Island too, but there seem to be no tours/transfers from these islands, only from mainland. Or at least I cannot find any. Am I missing something, and there is a way to visit the island from our destinations? Thank you!
Looking for updated information regarding the Ferry from ao nang to koh phi phi. Our front desk said we must book one day in advance, for 450 baht. Does this price sound right during low season?
They also said if we want to book ourselves we must go to Kongjirad pier. Is there a closer pier to Ao nang we can go to book Ferry tickets ? Will the boat sell out if we do not pre book? They said ther are only two boats per day, at 8:30 and 1:30.
I am looking for advice about travel from Chiang Mai, Thailand to Luang Prabang, Laos in January. Our priority is to have a pleasant, interesting, scenic trip, enjoying the sites and local culture on the way. Is the "slow boat" to LP an appealing way to go? Or is it only recommended for its low price? How about trains, buses? There is a one-hour direct flight on Lao Airlines from CM to LP and we would do that if the land or sea routes are nothing special.
Wondering if anyone out there has done a cycling tour with Spice Roads Cycling tours? We are looking at a 14 day tour from Saigon to Bangkok and am just wondering about others experience with this company? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm currently looking at train tickets from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, and also back from Chiang Mai to Ayuttyaha. As far as I can see from the SRT website, tickets can only be booked up to 60 days in advance.
However, I found that 12goasia (https://12go.asia/en) offers advance booking services. Does anyone have experience with this travel agency ? Is it reliable ?
My concern is that we are 2 adults, traveling with 2 kids aged 10 and 2. We would like to take the night train and preferably…
