I am heading to Thailand in a few weeks and wanted the most up to date recommendations for places to stay on a budget. I will be traveling to Bangkok, Ko Pha Ngan, and Chiang Mai. If you've been to Thailand in the last year and have had great experiencesor places to avoid I would really appreciate it! I am trying to spend no more than $25US a night or 875Baht. Also, do cheap bungalows come with mosquito nets or do I need to pick one up? I have a list from the lonely planet 2014 book…
I'm heading to Thailand on Boxing Day from London for 4 weeks. All I know is that I'm flying to Bangkok and flying back from Phuket. I'll be at Kho Panghan for NYE and also probably for the full moon party. In between then I want to head up to Chiang Mai as well as check out other Islands. Anyone going to be around then? Interested in meeting like minded peeps on here as well as meeting when out and about in Thailand!
Hi, heading to Thailand on Xmas day. Am thinking of heading straight to Koh Tarutao to chill out, as that sounds like my kind of place. I love nature, but I had an unfortunate incident elsewhere with sand fleas many many years ago that still plagues my memory, and I hear they have a problem with them on the island - so it's definitely putting me off, which is annoying!. I will, for sure, want to sunbathe for a few days....:( Does anyone know if Adang also has this problem also?
I spent alot of…
So I think this is it, we're going on a 3 week honeymoon from Aug. 5-27, we want a bit of everything from beach relaxation to wild parties to temples to jungles to markets to motor biking. This is not my first time in Thailand, but I haven't been to the Andaman coast before. Anyways what do you think:
Bangkok (2nights) ---> ChiangMai (2nights) ---> Pai (2nights) ---> Krabi (2nights) ---> Koh PhiPhi (3 nights) ---> Koh Samui (3nights) ---> Koh Tao (3 nights) ---> Kanachanaburi/Erawan Falls (1…
Just turned up in Kanchanaburi today. Wondering if there are any atm's here that don't charge a fee! My bank at home doesn't charge a fee for me using one but they say that it's the discretion of the atm provider - which is quite a few of them in Thailand! If anybody is about here perhaps I'll bump into you! Thanks for your help people.
In December I will be in Thailand for a couple of weeks. While staying in Bangkok for a few days before heading down to Phuket, I want to explore a bit of the surrounding area. Among other things, I'm planning a day trip to Ayutthaya and the Bang Pa-In Palace. According to my plan, the trip to Ayutthaya will be on the King's Birthday on December 5.
Will the Bang Pa-In Palace be closed on this day? Unfortunately I can't seem to find any official information on this. Will the…
I'm travelling from Thailand into Laos in September this year. Can someone confirm that I don't need a visa for Laos beforehand as this is available at the border? Also is the cost $45 Australian? And should this be in cash? I'm planning to cross at Chiang Khong/Huay Xai. I will be travelling alone, is this a straightforward border crossing? Thanks in advance
I have booked a trip to Thailand later this year for November 24th-December 18th. This will be my first time to Thailand. I am planning on booking most of my accommodations in hostels as I will be travelling solo.
I am not interested in the Full Moon parties, so my plan is to start south (probably around Phuket/Krabi) and work my way north to Chiang Mai. From what I have read this is kind of opposite with a lot of the tourist traffic during this period. I typically like to book my…
