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…

Visa upon Arrival for US Citizen Questions

Hi all,

I am flying to Thailand next week and want to get a 30 day visa upon arrival. I am getting conflicting information from friends and the internet.

The internet and embassy web sites say I need to be in possession of an 'onward flight' to another country outside of Thailand before my 30 day visa is up in Thailand, otherwise I will not be allowed inside the country. Friends are telling me this is not true and that they never come with an onward flight and have never had a problem!

November weather

Hi,

I am looking into going to Thailand travelling with 'backpacking through Thailand'

There are many dates you can book onto, the one I am looking at is the November date.

Just wondering what the weather would be like?

I would like to maybe go august/October? But read the weather can be very unpredictable.

I would be a first time solo traveller so very daunting so any help would be great.

Thank you

Beth

Nervous first time Thailand traveller!

Hi, I am planning to go to Thailand with a friend for 30 days in November. We are both 23year old females.

Our plan is to spend time in Bangkok for a few days, travel to Chiang Mai by the overnight train for a week, get the overnight train back to Bangkok for a few days, then get either a plane or bus to Phuket for over a week (as we want to explore the islands too).

As a first time traveller I am generally looking for any helpful advice? I have done my research but would like to hear about…

Pregnant vs Sporty

Hello,

Next week, I'll head to Bangkok with my pregnant partner for a month's holiday, and it will be her first visit, while I'm fortunate to have visited nearly half a dozen times.

I'm looking for advice and tips on what we can do and see, balancing her delicate condition and inexperience with my sporty/aquatic, semi experienced disposition.

I'm looking to go somewhere remote and cheap...I can snorkel and scuba dive while she reads and lazes about in the sun.

Also, I would greatly…

Chiang Mai downhill biking

Hello!

I'm coming to Chiang Mai next week and I plan to go downhill biking on several days. Either through a tour or just renting bikes and get a shuttle. Anyone keen on joining? I have previous experience and will probably go for some of the more advanced trails.

Cheers!

Chiang Mai national park or floating house recommendations? :)

Hi guys, my name is Tammy and I'm new to this forum, so thanks for having me! :)

I'm heading over to Northern Thailand in a few weeks and am organising the last bits of my trip.
I want to head outside of Chaing Mai city for a few days for some chilllout time and am thinking of staying in one of the National Parks or floating accomodation.

I'm looking for somewhere quiet (no parties, karaoke etc), that is relatively accessible from Chiang Mai if you're not renting a car, and offers activities…
