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…

Koh Jum by ferry - Must we choose accommodation in advance?

My wife and I are planning to go to Koh Jum for 3 to 5 days beginning February 10th. Ideally, we don't want to make reservations so we can choose a place to stay upon arrival. That way we'll have some room to bargain, plus we'll get to actually see some bungalows in person. I've read about the ferries from Krabi, which drop you off at resort owned longtail boats off of Koh Jum before heading on to Koh Lanta. I'm wondering:

If we take one of these ferries from Krabi to Koh Jum, does that mean…

Travelling for the first time

So i'm currently planning a trip to SE Asia departing the UK in early March. I've a budget of around £1000 (excluding flights) to last at least 3 months.

I've contacted a lot of workaway/ wwoof/ helpx and i've found it difficult to find a host that is…

Khao Yai trekking/tour from Pak Chong - easy to organize?

Hey all,

My girlfriend and I are trying to organize a Khao Yai national park trekking tour - ideally 3D2N - starting next Monday (February 2nd 2015) but I guess we've left it a bit late as most of the agencies we've found online don't have availability.

I'm thinking we just turn up in Pak Chong and see what's on offer. Can anyone tell me if it's easy to organize/join a tour from Pak Chong?

Another tourist gone missing on Koh tao

according to ThaiVisa forum.
Perhaps tourists travelling alone should not go there, and if with someone don't go off on your own. It's become "death island" recently.

In Search of the Yesteryear Thailand ... Is it possible?

Myself and my husband are in search of simple hut style accommodation on a beautiful beach in south east Asia, not too populated by tourists so we can take 6 weeks out to rest and recoup after a pretty stressful year and prep ourselves for the year ahead. Obviously the cheaper the better but we are really interested to see if this is possible to achieve still (I traveled Thailand 10 years ago and rocked up to a couple of spots that would be so suitable for the R&R we need for very small…
