Hey guys, I will be backpacking in Thailand for a month sometime between September-November. I need to purchase my plane tickets immediately and need help on where to fly in and out of Thailand.
I want to backpack through South and North Thailand, So would flying in and out of Bangkok be ideal for me? Cheapest and most convenient? I was thinking I can just book this flight and figure out an itinerary trail after.
Also, Is it cheaper and more convenient to fly around Thailand to get to my…
My super cheap ticket has me landing in Phuket International Airport at 1AM. After getting my bags and going through immigration I imagine it will be well passed 2AM. I am debating of just passing out for 5 or 6 hours in the airport that night. What do you recommend?
I read that there really isn't any hotel shuttle transportation at that hour and the bus drivers are sleeping at home with their families. Taxis? Oh that one driver that is creepily waiting for that one lonely chick…
I am aiming to travel SEA next year but won't arrive at Thailands southern Islands and surrounding areas (Ko Samui/Ko Tao/Krabi/Railay/Ko Phi Phi etc) until mid to late June and was curious as to how much overcast or rainfall I may encounter? I heard that the monsoon season can start as early as may and it got me thinking. I know you can't give me a straight up answer as it can change from year to year but just a rough average or even previous experiences for this time of the year would be a…
Hi there, forgive me if this is in the wrong section. I am looking at booking a flight from vancouver to bangkok, and have questions about certain airlines and there connections. I will be going for 30 days with only a carry on(If that matters)
First the cheapest option, Air China with a connection in Beijing, I have heard many bad things about this. From airline notification problems, to major delays out of Beijing.
Second options, both same price but more expensive then Air China. Is China…
Hi, I am currently in Koh phra thong on the west coast of the peninsular it's beautiful but the weather is very cloudy and rainy...I know it's that time of year but I have 10 days left in Thailand and would really like some sun before going home, does anyone know where there is some?
Thanks. Julie x
I am planning a solo trip to thailand for 4 to 5 weeks in October. I would like see Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Ayutthaya, Pai. What are some other places to visit? I know Oct is at the end of the rainy season so Phuket and the islands are almost out of the question. Also, what are the best ways to get around, e.g. train, bus, motor bike, etc?
I only have June 16 to June 21 to enjoy the Gulf of Thailand Islands and I really want to avoid the full moon party. We are traveling as a family (with younger teens) and want snorkeling, beach etc. This would be easy for me to plan. I would do a few days in Ko Samui, Ko Tao and Ko Pha-Ngan, but it seems with this June 19th full moon I can't avoid the mayhem. Can someone help me with an itinerary that would be a step ahead or behind the partiers. For example, are the hordes of people still…
Done some research allready, still have some questions about Ko Mak.
Wondering which side of the island has the better beach? Or is just nicer to stay?
Read a lot over problems with sand fleas, is it a common problem on Koh Mak or only some beaches?
Does the problem only appear some periods? We are travelling december.
Any advice on skipping the sandfleas, coconut oil?
Don't say, stay at the pool, we're not really pool persons....
