Hi all !
I am in Thailand at the moment and feel like getting away from the beaches and the heat, so I though, why not go hiking?
I've found some itineraries on the internet, but they are super expensive, of course.
Also, I prefer to hike alone - not with a guide.
Has anyone done this before? Where should I start? Are the trails well indicated? Any recommendations?
ALL help is welcome. Thanks a mill!
Something for the Thai Island experts; there's plenty of info about the islands and ferries from / to the mainland but little (that I can find) about inter-island travel. My map (based on OpenStreetMaps) indicates that it's possible to island hop by ferry from Ranong to Phuket; one slight complication is that I shall be travelling by bicycle. So the questions are; is this route possible and is it feasible / practical (ie. in terms of expense, time, ferry schedule and taking a bike on boats)…
I'm currently traveling Vietnam and will then be heading over to Thailand for around 3 months, so I require a 3 month Thai visa (I will be volunteering).
I will probably be in the south of Vietnam before going to Thailand.
What is the easiest and cheapest way of getting the 3 month visa?
I will travel from Ko Chang (via Trat probably) to Vientiane overland in first week of November 2016.
What I've found is:
- ferry from Ko Chang and minivan to Bangkok (Ekkamai)
- night bus to Vientiane or night train
What you recommend: bus or train? Is it possible to book tickets on Ko Chang?
Is there any option to go directly overland (not through Bangkok)?
For example van/bus from Trat to Nakhon Ratchasima and a another further to Vientiane?
Remark: I've not booked any tickets yet and my…
The traditional celebrations have been toned down because of the recent sad death of King Rama IX and the mourning period. The local municipality have today announced the new plans:
I'm travelling to Phuket next week. I've booked Lub d Hostel for 2 nights. What should I do for 6 more nights? I then have a flight to Bankok for 3 nights. Where should I stay, what should I do? Any suggestions?
Next year I have a South East Asia trip, begins from Ho Chi Minh - Viet Nam and go through Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Philippines and I wish to have a recommendation in transporation to save the cost, especially from Chiangmai to Singapore. I have research and it seems that there's two way to make it, by flight or by bus. However, flight is quite expensive and if I want to go by bus, I need to go to Bangkok then from Bangkok to Penang.
Thanks for advice!
just arrived one week ago and after three days my skin reacted more and more to any DEET-containing repellent.
As WHO's/UNIDO's and all other serious scientists announce, there is only one REAL alternative, named Icaridin (also known as picaridin, KBR 3023, under the INCI name hydroxyethyl isobutyl piperidine carboxylate, and the trade names Bayrepel and Saltidin).
As I didn't find ANY repellent, containing this in Ko Samet, Jomtien or Ko Sichang, here my question to all of you:
