We have heard about and want experience train ride to go from Bakgkok to Chiang Mai. Need advice on which train (time) cost as compared to bus and any other details someone thinks important. Thanks very much.
I will be in Thailand for 2 weeks from 3rd March. Bangkok, Khao Sok National Park and Ko Yao Yai island in the South. I know the days will be hot, I'm wondering how cold it gets at night. Would rather not bring a bulky jacket as I'm backpacking and trying to pack as light as possible. Will I get away with a light sweater?
Thanks for any answers :)
Hi I am going to Bangkok Phuket and Krabi which is the best currency to take English. Pound or baht which is better rate
About how long will it take to clear customs at Bangkok's Don Mueang Airport (DMK)? We will be arriving on a Thursday at 10:15 am in a few weeks using Thai AirAsia X Airbus 330. We already have Thai 60 days visa in our passports. Thanks.
I'm flying from Bangkok to phuket next week, and on my arrival i have to take a taxi or bus to patong?, can u guys give some advice? which is better taxi or a bus? thanks a lot in advance :)
Should I change money before I fly to Thailand? Or would I get a better rate on arrival at airport in Thailand?
How's the weather in the south of Thailand ? I Wanted to go to Krabi but it's seems to be raining everywhere in the whole south ??
I've a special demand this time to visit Thailand. I'm french if it's not written on my page and I'm renewing my driving licence after I lost it in a train... The administration in INCREDIBLY slow and I'm not sure if my national french driving licence will be ready on time before I go to Thailand... Plus if I have to make an INTERNATIONAL driving licence which is going to take 2 extra weeks... Needless to say I'm in a hurry.
I know it's not legal to use only my FRENCH driving licence (if I've it on time!) but I wanted to rent a car (through the agency Thai Rent A Car for example)... But do you know if those rental cars companies ask to see your INTERNATIONAL driving licence at the offices when you come to get the car or is it ok if you just show your own national driving licence?
I'm not talking about the fines if I encounter a picky Thai policeman, it's ok I can deal with it. But can I rent a car in Thailand simply with my NATIONAL driving licence?
Thank you a lot! :)
How do I get to Kampot, Cambodia from Bangkok, easiest way ?

Thank yooooo xxx
I'm checking a flight from Shanghai to Bangkok, and the best flight I've found is operating by a company called Mesaba Airlines... An American company that stopped activity back in 2012...!
So was the company bought by a Chinese or Thai Airlines Company... or is this a trick? I really don't understand, it doesn't look trustworthy!
It's URGENT thank you :)
Hi there are 4 of us coming to Thiland in March 2017 we're trying to sort out our trip/movements but there is so much to do in such a short space of time 14-16 days
We have decided island hopping & spending 2-3 days in each place is the way forward with maybe a few more nights at the last point
We want to do the elephant sanctuary
See the baby lions
Do some scuba diving etc
Do the full moon party in march (12th) I think it is
Can anyone recommend the best places to go to, to do the above I imagine there are some shocking animal sanctuarys
We were thinking of starting at the furthest point & working our way back
Where would we fly into? How do you get to the other islands on a boat? What's the longest travelling time?
Any help/advice would be great so we can start making a plan/itinerary we're flying from the UK either Gatwick or Heathrow & then were planning on booking hotels on booking.com or air bnb
Roughly anyone that has done this type of thing how much should we be looking at money wise to do this?
I literally have no idea we're going to look at flights this week then hotel pricing & then I guess food/drinks everyday. Transport & trips
I have never been to Thailand and i'm thinking of going there in about 12 months time or so and I was wondering what is the best time of year to travel in Thailand?
I'm travelling to Thailand in March and have a bit of spare time in Bangkok. I'm already planning a day trip to Ayutthaya, is there a similar trip that can be done in a day? Would it be worth flying to Chiang Mai just for two nights? Any advice would be really appreciated!
Is there anybody who had issues with the Turkish airline and their services?
On the 5th of August. I and my wife purchased Turkish airline flight tickets via Expedia to travel from Bangkok to Istanbul and then to Tel Aviv to return on the 15th of August from Tel Aviv to Istanbul then Bangkok
We missed the first flight from Bangkok to Istanbul and I received a message from Expedia that Turkish airline canceled all of my 8 tickets, including tickets for the 15th of August.
Then I and my wife purchased a new ticket on the Turkish airline website on the 6th of August to the same destination (Bangkok to Istanbul and then to Tel Aviv) in order to return on the 15th of August from Tel Aviv to Istanbul and then to Bangkok, with a total of 8 tickets.
We used the tickets to fly from Bangkok to Istanbul but personal urgent circumstances forced on us in Istanbul airport to buy returning tickets from Istanbul to Bangkok.
So we used only 2 tickets this time, we didn't use the remaining 6 tickets, out of the 16 tickets purchased from Turkish airline I only used two.
to Turkish airline to refund my unused tickets. The First time I received an unintelligible reply and the second time, which is one month I wrote ago, I sent Turkish airline another message but until now I didn't receive any message.
I wrote also to Expedia,you notice it,but this is the next story....
So how do you think I can resolve this issue?... Any advice?

Hi, I am flying into Bangkok, then flying out of Bangkok 3 1/2 months afterward. My plan is to travel in Thailand for 60 days, then travel to Cambodia, Laos, and maybe Myamar for the rest of the time before returning to Bangkok to catch my flight home. I am a US Citizen
So . . . I might have to criss-cross Thailand to get to these different countries after the 60 day visa is expired. I know I can extend that visa for 30 days so that takes care of 3 months, but when I return to Thailand for another country to get my flight can I get some kind of visa at the border to stay for a few days to catch my flight?
Hello, I'm just wondering where's the best beach in Thailand that is nice to visit.
I am wanting to spend 6 months in Thailand, but aware that you can only get a 60 day tourist visa. If i cross the border to Burma for a couple of weeks, can you then get another 60 day visa? I am sure there are some loop holes but just want to be sure. Does anyone have any advice?
Hello Phi Phi experts!
We will be staying on the island for a few nights at Cliff Resort and Zeavola.

- a private speedboat to Krabi airport from Zeavola
I am planning to travel to Phi Phi islands in Thailand am interested in doing some shopping and water activities although I need an advice about good hotels with some good rates
I am leaving for Thailand Sept 7. My original plan to explore Thailand in Sept then head to Maylasia in October however my plans are extremely fluid. Since I will be traveling alone I am somewhat concerned about safety especially with certain recent events if anyone could share a little knowledge or even some better insight into what's going on that would be great. Also any ideas as far as unique "non-tourist" stops I would really like to get off the beaten path and explore. Thank you!
Hi Everyone, am travelling with my family to see Thailand in 2017. I am planning my days around as well as tour guides and all.

Could you also advise if most of the shops & stores would also be open over the New Years weekend?
