    Bangkok protests - is it safe to visit Khao San Road

    If your not thai its no problem just returned and walked straight through them all,they are not interested in westerners only political thai ppl!!! You are safe if you just be a normal tourist(not be a drunken moron),thai ppl love westerners and would never hurt them as the penalties r extreme!!! over 5 years ago

    Have you any travel advice for a group of 8 female 20 year olds travelling around Thailand?

    Gotta b more worried about other tourists than thai ppl... B careful if you renting motor scooters go slower than you think is safe,take gastro pills as you will get sick every1 does...barter on everything chop everything at least 50% and thats about right...the standard stuff on going out to drink at the bars at its the same everywhere b careful when out drinking...keep everything of value locked in safe and only carry the money you need,hotel staff WILL steal money if its left out of safe...put phones ipods and even ipads into safe cause you wont get anywhere if they are stolen...police are not helpful over 5 years ago

    San Francisco for a week

    Try airbnb for san fran its fantastic in that city and will be cheaper than a hotel...lots of stuff to see just get there and get walking its a great city to walk although be warned it is extremely hilly... Take a cable car upto lombard street and do pier 1 on a sat morning when the mrk is happening gotta do the chowder as its world famous there(anywhere is good to get it) do some seafood meals... Just ask around ppl will give you lots of ideas...chinatown here is very large too and is a great spot to explore... The castro and that part of town is good and unusual also... Great place just to eat sit and watch the city work...you will love it almost 5 years ago
