Hello folks! After spending hours over my Moon Thailand guide and Thorn Tree forum, realized Id have to jump in and ask your advice. A friend and I land in Bangkok November 18 and we want to experience some beautiful quiet Thai beaches (kayaking, snorkeling, hiking) the less of a party scene the better. We only have about 4 days as we are planning to visit Chiang Mai as well, so we seek a beach that is relatively accessible -- doesn't have to be an island, though day trips would be fun.
We will be staying in Si Saket town in early December. What is the best way to get to Siem Reap? Other websites are very vague , only hinting at taxis, buses etc. Any firm and recent advise would be appreciated
Me and my boyfriend are looking for a calm island to go to around mid november.
We've been looking at ko tarutao for the moment, whatdo you think? ko phi phi sounded nice but it's seems to be a bit touristy. We'd like a place were we can chill, no partying no nights out just beaching, relaxing maybe some snorkeling. Does anybody have a good address to stay at with good beds not too expensive maybe a bingalow over looking the sea?! lol I might be asking too much!
I'm currently in thailand with my boyfriend who has caught dengue fever in leoi.
The dr. said there had been some cases in leoi but i'm not sure if he meant in leoi province or in the actual city leoi ( as we've been to both!) Just wanted to warn you as it's a horrible fever and he's still suffering after 6 days so protect yourselves from mosquito's especially in jungly areas!!!
My husband and I are stopping in Pai for about three days in the middle of our three-week Thailand excursion. Between exploring temples in Bangkok, exploring Chiang Mai, and tanning in the islands, we want to rough-it a bit in Pai and have some relaxing fun with fellow backpackers. Would love some advice on the following:
1. Where is the best area to stay, knowing that we don't want to be kept up all night, but we also want some excitement/nightlife (looking for a short walk or moped ride).
I am looking at spending 2/3 months in either Thailand, or Colombia from Mid November.
I would like to know which place is better? Cost wise on both places? Which is more enjoyable for a solo traveler?
Before anyone says it I know you can catch a bus or fly to Trat! This is not for me but for some friends and they have decided that this is the optimum for them
can anyone recommend a reliable taxi company and the contact details to go from Central Bangkok to Hat lek (on the Cambodian border south of Trat) and any idea of likely charge although can ask them directly if you have the contact info
