VISA CHANGES For people entering Thailand by land

SUMMARY - Read first before asking new questions.

Before 1995 many nationalities got 15 days non visa entry then it was changed to 30 days . In about 2006 due mainly to concerns about criminals and illegal workers doing border rums a 90 days in 180 days stay limit for non visa entry was introduced . It was discontinued after about 6 months as it was too difficult to administer and it was replaced by a simpler system of only giving 15 days at land borders
Now that's been relaxed again by…

Phayao

Dear All

It seems that the last topic about Phayao is about two years old so I'm writing for some actual information.

We (2 adults and 2-year old) would like to visit Phayao. Has anybody been there lately and some information about a nice Homestay and/or small guesthouse near the lake (other than Tripadvisor and Travelfish mention)?

Thanks in advance.

A week in Krabi province

Hi all,

I am spending 7 full days in Krabi area before heading back to bangkok at the beginning of January.

There are so many information about that area that after reading few posts I feel a bit confused...

I would like to go scuba diving at least one day while there and I have read that Phi Phi is the best place where to do it in that particular area. I also want to see the 4 islands, hong island and maybe james bond island too...In addition, I would not mind rock climbing or/ and rafting..

Renewal of the 30+30 visa exemption stamp. How long do I need to leave?

A lot of people ask questions about the VISAs for Thailand but I have not been able to find an answer to this question.
With the new rule (as of August 2014) you can extend your 30-day VISA exemption stamp (no-visa entry for certain countries including the US) by another 30 days and as such get 60 days without an actual VISA in Thailand.

My question is: When I use up the 60 days, how long do I need to leave Thailand to go back in and get another 30-day exemption stamp?

We are not living in…
