Asia - Thailand
Messages: 70,374 - Threads: 6,966
I am lucky (or the tourist slump in Thailand is serious): three charming hotels on the riverside have a room in the days I need.
Now it is impossible to decide. Anyone who knows these boutique hotels can point to a definite favorite?
I know that Ibrik is on the other side of the river, and slightly cramped (we will share the bed with our small kid), but they have a lovely room for us right on the water (sunshine). Arun seems more posh, But the room they have, Chaba, does not seem too appealing. Aurum seems less characteristic.
How are they position wise, not only for tourism but to take a stroll and grab a bite in the evening?
My husband and I are staying in Bangkok for Songkran (Khao San Road) but have about 9 days afterwards free. We would like to go somewhere with nice beaches and a bit of a nightlife. We are deliberating between Kho Chang or Koh Samet (Samed). We have stayed at Koh Samui and Koh Phangan (non full moon time) and enjoyed both. We don't have children and we don't mind noisy but want nice beaches. So many different reviews for both that we thought we'd ask you guys!
Where is a decent place to buy AMs in Bangkok for travel to Burma?
I'm thinking probably doxy rather than Malarone.
I heard of a mini bus from Suvranabhumi to Don Muang Airport. Has anyone used this service lately? Curious about frequency, journey time and fare. As an alternate, how much would a taxi cost? My thanks in advance for any and all responses.
So before I ask my questions, here is a small summary and yes I have done extensive research over the past 2 months on this forum and appreciate the great insight...
We are a couple in our mid-thirties, heading to Thailand for 23 days during the last week of March. We are active, but don't climb and planning on spending a lot of time chillin' on the beach, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, yoga, spa, eating, and drinking (not really much into the party scene anymore). We are also planning on a wedding ceremony for just the 2 of us with a local/Buddhist theme. Official/legal stuff will be taken care of back in the States. This is our honeymoon and therefore not on a tight budget.
- Any suggestions for an absolutely beautiful location for an intimate, romantic, and tiny (just us and the people helping us put it on) wedding ceremony? We will most likely ...
Can anyone recommend a dermatologist anywhere from Chiang Mai to Phuket? Nothing major, I just need a skin cancer screening.
My husband and I will be going on our honeymoon next month and will be in Thailand for 2 weeks at the beginning of April.
We plan to go to Chiang Mai, Phuket, and Krabi (most likely staying in Railay West from what I've read).
For the most part, we're looking to spend roughly $30-75 USD (roughly 900-2300 THB) per night in 2 of the areas we plan to visit. In either Phuket or Krabi, we're looking to splurge and treat ourselves to a nicer, resort style hotel/bungalow on the beach, spending up to approximately $150-$175 USD (4500-5350 THB) per night.
I'm interested in receiving opinions from other travelers as to where is worth the splurge, and where it is better to save our money..
Any recommendations are appreciated!
What is the best way to get from the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok to Hualamphong train station? How long does it take?
If taking a taxi how much should it cost?
I am planning on going to Thailand for just under four weeks, just wondering what a good size ruck sack is? Thanks!
I'm travelling to Thailand for a month in August, and was wondering where people think the best places to go are and anywhere they would recommend?
I visited before for two weeks and went to Bangkok, Koh Samui, Koh Phagnan and Koh Tao.. but this time I want to visit some different places as well as these, am particularly interested in the North and also Phuket, however I'm on a budget so was wondering if it was too expensive?
Also the best ways to get around and to each island?
Any suggestions will be helpful!
Thank you :)
Planning on doing an land crossing to thailand via the friendship bridge within the next week. I know that the visa for a land crossing is only 15 days so was wondering what the cheapest way of extending that visa would be (have a flight out of bangkok on the 29th march), either to pay for an extension or do a visa run to somewhere?
Good day! I'm going to Chiang Mai & Chiang Rai this July, i'll reach Bangkok first, then plan to take bus to Chiang Rai (is that a good idea?). if it's ok, how can i take bus from Bangkok international airport to Chiang Mai?
And i plan to stay at Chiang Mai for 4 days, and CHiang Rai for 2 days, then i'll take bus from Chiang Rai back to Bangkok to fly back to Penang.
Q1. would you suggest me to stay at Bangkok for a day or two before going to Chiang Mai?
Q2. take bus to Chiang Rai (is that a good idea?)
Q3. places to go to in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai.
Q4. hotel/ guesthouse to stay in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. (I'm on tight budget)
We're Chiang Mai for the next 3 weeks and will then be in Malaysia for 1 week before going to New Zealand for 1 month.We need to buy a few warmer bits and bobs like fleeces/hoodies/trousers etc,as we've been in Asia for the last 3 months and haven't needed anything like that.
So-is it better/easier/cheaper to buy stuff here in CM or should we wait 'til we get to KL?(We've never been before so have no idea what the shopping is like there....also,is it easier to get bigger sizes in Thailand or KL?
