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…

Solo Traveller in Thailand

Hey I am currently doing a SE Asia tour and will arrive in Bankok around 10 March. I do not currently have a travel buddy for this leg of journey so I would be grateful to buddy up with any fellow traveller for companionship!

Swimming pools in Chiang Mai. Must. Cool. Down.

Hi all, spending a week in Chiang Mai, I've been here a couple times but didn't realize it was going to be this hot right now. Any suggestions on public pools or nice hotel pools that charge a nominal fee for public use? I come from cool, dry mountain climes and am not cut out for this. Please assist.

Phuket to Koh Chang

Hello fellow travelers!!
I'm going to meet a friend in Koh Chang within the next week. I'm staying in Phuket and have a flight already reserved from Phuket to Tokyo, but I can change that date. I'm trying to fit in a trip to Koh Chang from Phuket. I read some posts, but most are from Koh Chang to Phuket.
What's the best way to get to Koh Chang from Phuket? A few options would be greatly appreciated! I know the different ways will either take longer, but cost less or will be quick, but will…
