NEW VISA CHANGES THREAD

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…

kota kinabalu to thailand with kids

Change of plans and needing quick advice. i have been travelling with my 3 children and am currently in sabah. I had planned sarawak but time is too tight to do it at a relaxed pace. We fly home from KL in 2 weeks and was needing a nice relaxed place to spend 10 days on a beach in thailand, not too far from KL while we await our flight home. Our travel budget is getting a bit thin and so good but cheap accomodation is a consideration as are travel costs....any suggestions?

weekday floating market near Bangkok

Ya, trying to reduce the temples and add this floating market: Anyone have been here?

Bang Khu Wiang Floating Market

Perhaps the best choice to enjoy a traditional Thai floating market without the touristy push is Bang Khu Wiang. Monks arrive by boat in early morning on their daily 'tak baat' (alms round), and a variety of farm - fresh produce is offered.

Opening Hours: 04:00 - 07:00 (every day)
How to get there: One option is to rent a boat from Chang Pier (in Bangkok), and ask to be taken…

Thai tourist visas

Hi,

I'm not sure from the sites I've seen. Our plan is to arrive in Thailand and then travel to Laos, then Cambodia, and then back to Thailand. This would be in a 15 day periods. I notice Russians get a 15 day visa on arrival. I'm wondering if that is multiple entry or not. Otherwise, returning to Thailand to fly back, we'll need to get the visa at the land border again.

3 days in Bangkok

Trying to do these things in 3 days: Dec 24th afternoon-evening
Dec 25th almost whole day
Dec 26th morning and early afternoon.
