Hi All,

I am planing a road trip by a rent car, from Chiang Mai to Pai, Chiang Rai, golden triangle, Doi waterfalls (not in this order).

If anybody have a map (google, waze or any other) with complete route and points of interest that I must see and visit I will really appreciate.

Map is not mandatory, I'll appreciate just any assistance planning the trip.

This will be my first visit to Thailand (mid October).

Planing to spend 5 days on this trip (might be extended to 7).

I will be traveling using the Nakhon Ratchasima (west), Ubon Ratchathani (east), Udon Thani (north) triangle as a rough guide. What I'm interested in are the spots in betweeen and the little detours. I have month till I have to be back in Bangkok. I've read about Pak Chom and Sangkhom being nice places near Udon. Then there are Khao Yai National Park and the towns of Phimai and Dan Kwian near Nakhon Ratchasima. What else is there in Isaan?

Hi everyone,
I am about to leave for a 10 days vacation in Myanmar, after that, I'd like to relax a bit in Koh Samui/Koh Tao.

Since I like to plan my movement day by day, I'd like to book my flight BKK/Samui a few days in advance (or even directly at the airport).

Do you think it's do-able or is it a bad choice? Do you think I risk not to find any flight available?

The literal interpretation of the latest overstay law (which states in part that overstaying aliens who don't surrender will face 5 year ban if overstay is less than one year ) that this means even a 2 day overstay will attract those penalties has some problems.
Firstly the 500 baht fine is still in place , if they were no longer willing to tolerate even 2 day overstays why wouldn't they increase the fine so that a 2 or 3 day overstay is more expensive than getting the 1900 baht extension ?

Hi all,

I am planning my first trip to Thailand, it will be 11 full days starting November 30th and leaving December 11th.

I am somehow settled on the first couple of days and last 5 days, but the 4 days in the middle have 2 scenarios:
1) either I spend them all in the north first chiang Mai then to Mae Hong Son and Pai loop or
2) Spend 2 extra days in bangkok to do kanchanaburi or AyuthayaI as day trips then 2 days in chiang mai

Here are my initial thought, please take a look and share your…

Samed Grandview Resort: 1 room (2 people) Free 3 Days from this Monday 25 July (checkout Thursday 28th noon).
We have paid in full for this room but now cannot go! Please contact Brian on [removed] and I will request name change into yours (which you can then confirm direct with hotel). I am doing this because I resent the 'non-refundable" term of my booking and would like someone (anyone!) to have the benefit.
