AThailand: Advice sought for December-Jan family trip

As already mentioned, take the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The 2nd class sleeper is the most popular, gets into Chiang Mai in the early morning. The scenery through the mountains and countryside alone is well worth the ride. You can book that in advance... See More

AKoh Chang: Anyone have advice on places to stay and visit while on Koh Chang?

If you're looking for a quiet beach, consider Long Beach​​ and Klong Kloi Beach​, in my opinion the the quiet beaches don't match the quality of the more popular beaches but check them out, I guess it's a matter of preference.... See More
