    Having 9 days in Phuket then want to go to Koh Samui, best/fastest option to travel from Phuket to Koh Samui please

    Fastest will be airways of course. You can take Air Asia from Phuket to Surat Thani and then take a bus to the Jetty and then a Ferry to Koh Samui. By Bus it will take you 4 hours from Phuket to Surat Thani and cost around 200 Bahts per head. over 6 years ago

    First time traveling to Thailand n India.

    Recommend you get the visa from US itself, will save you some time in Thailand. Getting sick in India is common for foreigners mainly due to the water, I recommend you always buy bottled water from a source your relatives recommend. Food related sickness can also set in however you are at risk only if you eat street food or at low quality restaurants. Home cooked meals will be fine and so will be dining at good high end restaurants, popular fast food franchises (Mc Donalds, Pizza Hut) etc. As far as the time of the month goes, it depends where are you traveling too? Most of India will be pretty darned hot during this time however hill stations are cool and inviting. Also the coastal towns are great for traveling. over 6 years ago

    Is Thailand in May a good place to honeymoon?

    May is generally considered a Monsoonal month here, so you might find yourself in the middle of a lot of rain showers, not saying that is not romantic in itself though :). Some great Honeymoon retreats here are in Koh Samui, Koh Chang, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. One advantage of coming here in May is that it since it is an off-season as far as tourism goes, the crowds will be lesser and the prices will be cheaper. over 6 years ago

    What I should we NOT miss in Bangkok in 2 full days?

    I'd say check out the Grand Palace and the temples within its vicinity and River Cruise for a spectacular night view of the city on day 1. Your hotel can help you arrange a taxi and also the Cruise which costs between 800 to 1200 Bahts. You can try shopping at MBK and Pratunam all within walking distance of where you are staying on Day 2. I doubt you will have any energy left after this (you will be walking a lot!). While Chatuchaak market is a also one of the recommended places (great for bargain shopping and finding handicrafts), it is a weekend market and also you would typically require at least one whole day to see it properly. over 6 years ago

    Hiking in Thailand

    Chiang Mai has quiet a few Hiking Trails that you can take. While most of the guided tours that you will find yourself being offered are a few days long, there are those which last day long as well. Doi Inthanon is the main hiking destination and offers a variety of trails, its hard to describe each one of those here and you are best to decide that when you get to Chiang Mai. over 6 years ago

    Am spending 3 days in Bangkok, and then leaving from Phuket 9 days later... Where to go & how to get there?

    There are a range of travel options ranging from airplane to buses, trains, taxis. An airplane ticket will cost you 3000 to 4000 Bahts per person. Buses cost 500 to 1000 Bahts per person depending on whether it is a First or a Second Class Bus. As far as Taxis go you since it is a 500 km ride it will probably cost more than 2000 to 3000 Bahts. The train costs 750 Bahts for a second class Sleeper Cabin. over 6 years ago
