There has been frustration expressed about the number of similar questions being asked about onward ticket complications. The idea of this thread is that it might be a one stop shop for all the common questions so in future a link might be given to it rather than having to write the same info again and again-

How do I know the info already on Thorntree about this is still current ?

The basic issues about onward tickets have changed little in the last 25 years or more. When there are any…

Hello to all,

I will be back packing from Bangkok and working my way North to cross over into Laos. I wanted to include Chaing Rai along with Chaing Mai and was told to skip CR. Would I miss much if I skip CR?

thank you!

Hi all!
I'll be staying at Railay beach (on the east side) for a few nights in November and after checkout I need to catch a fly from Krabi Airport heading to Bangkok as early as possible. Does anyone know if there are regular boats leaving Railay in the morning? If so, at what time do they start? If not, how can I leave Railay (going to any pier where I can get a tuk tuk or taxi to the airport) in the morning?
My initial intention was to catch a fly at Krabi Airport departing at 11am, which means…

Hello!

I will be traveling to Thailand in mid August, arriving in Bangkok. I will spend most of my time there exploring the North (Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pai... BTW if you have recommendations of places to stay on the way north from Bangkok let me know), but when I first arrive I want to go for around 5 days to an island on the south, just to get the taste of it.

I have read about all the main islands, and they all look great, so is very hard to decide! Can anyone say which one was their…

I am trying to understand exactly the details of the visa exemptions that apply to a UK passport holder entering Thailand by Land

Thus I entered by land at the Hat Lec border crossing on 9th January 2017 and again on 29th April 2017

my question is will I be allowed to enter Thailand again at…

Hi all,

I just wanted to get some feedback from backpackers/travellers about a new concept. As someone who is keen on both travelling and fitness, it's become apparent during my time in South East Asia that a number of other people are keen on maintaining fitness whilst travelling too .

With the availability of good quality gyms in this part of the world quite infrequent to say the least, I am pursuing the idea of opening a backpacker hostel with a fully equipped gym on site. The cost of the…

Will thing be open there? (breakfast, restaurants, not planning on much else then chilling, eating and reading...). And how long will it take us to get from Railay to Lanta in…

Hi there, I go to Southeast Asia next week and spending 2 nights in Bangkok. I'm going to go to the Sky Bar for a drink (even though it's crazy expensive for Bangkok).
Is there any other cool bars or bars with great views people would recommend?
