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…

Has anyone here been to Thailand for Songkran in either Phuket or Chiang Mai? we're looking to book a tour and I read that Phuket is supposed to be really good, we want to party for a few days. Chiang Mai seems more traditional, which is something we'd like to in a few years.
I need to arrange 3 days of activities for my group of 120 people (business retreat)...We are still deciding between Krabi Ao Nang and Koh Lanta.
Does anyone have any advice about which place to choose (the trip is mid-October)?
Or which activities are the best in each region?
Or which activity companies are the best?!
I am travelling to Phuket with my wife and 3 kids (11,7,4) in October and am after some advice for accommodation. We would like to stay somewhere in a good location that is not too expensive. Hopefully somewhere with a pool and a kids club.
We don't have any ideas what areas are good or which hotels are good. Any information would be great, thanks :)
I have been travelling Thailand for 2 months on bicycle and just found this little Guest House in Hua Hin Called "Joe and Jackys"
Joe and Jacky are an absolute pleasure to be around and certainly made my stay in Hua Hin feel like home. Joe was born in Hua Hin so his tours were very detailed and filled with local stories and sights and all for a very cheap price!
The Hotel itself is right in the middle of town on Soi 53 and a very short walk to the beach, night markets and local clubs/pubs.
Is it worth going over to Phi Phi for a couple of days or just settle on a day trip? My travelling companion has not been to either place before and we are doing a lot of 2-4 day stays in Thailand and Laos over a 4 weeks period so continuous relocating might take a toll.
What would you do? Opinions please.
Hi, I'm a british student who is moving to Bangkok for summer to take part in an internship, I'm hoping to lose a lot of weight and keep fit whilst working there and was wondering if anyone knew of any good gyms or fitness clubs near the Phaya Thai/victory monument area? Asking for this area because It's where I'll be staying.
I will be living in Bangkok from June till the end of August and I'm just very curious as to what my eating habits will be like. I've heard that there is practically no need to have a kitchen as I can eat my meals from the food stalls and restaurants in Bangkok but what I'm most curious about is the breakfast options.
Can anyone describe to me what their diet was like during their stay in Bangkok?
