Thailand Travel & Holiday Tips

Holiday Tips for Beaches, Nightlife, Transportation and more

We focus on different perspectives of holidays in the country of smile plus arrivals at Bangkok and other places. Enjoying beaches and islands, outdoor adventure, nightlife and other vacation. In Siam as it was formerly known are top travel packages available, no need to run around and get stressed. When you arrive in the capital go to a travel agent and a day after you hit the road to south, east, west or north Thailand. There are four more international airports which are Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai and Chiang Mai. 

Crossing the border via road travel is mainly from Malaysia, Cambodia and Laos, Myanmar is not interesting because of their visa regulations, better take the aircraft to Yangon. 

Some basic country data

Transportation in the capital and elsewhere

The best and fasted transportation in urban areas are motorbikes (scooter with 125cc), they can be rented everywhere for around Baht 250,- / day but it is very dangerous to drive with them because most people don't know about traffic rules and they just don't care. A good alternative in Bangkok would be to take a "Motocyc" taxi and the BTS (elevated train) or the underground. For long distance take the bus, they are in good condition, the roads are also quite good, means a perfect match.

Phuket Day Trips Sightseeing and Cruising

Great Day Trips on Phuket Holiday.

What makes this round trips very interesting is the variety and the fact that they quite good organized although the agents often try to pull the tourists into shops to sell them something since they get commission there. If something like this happen tell the guy bluntly to stop it since you don't want to be sold by him / her, unfortunately Thais want to sell you anything constantly.

A day trip to the Similan islands

This outings can have several destinations, one is visiting a National Park, e.g. Khao Sok, another could be a snorkeling trip to one of the smaller islands around, maybe some big game fishing, a scuba diving expedition to the Similan Islands or maybe a cruise into Phangnga Bay, among other.

You could also just hire a car or a scooter 

and make a beach hopping around there are many beautiful waterfronts to explore and most are almost empty especially at the north west.

Ko Panyi & James Bond Island in Phang Nga Bay

Ko Panyi was founded by Indonesian fishermen in the 18th Century similar to other places in southern Thailand.

This is a great water world and the only way to enjoy this is by boat, there are no other ways since the interesting part are the bizarre limestone islands. To get some better idea of the area take accommodation, in one of the guesthouses. Ko Panyi is a Muslim village right in the water on stilts, this golden shimmering mosque is a beautiful optical impression. Maybe have something to eat, be aware that everyone wants to sell you something.

Ko Panyi built on stilts

The place is about a half kilometer long and before the tourists came all people made their money with fishing. 

Explore the incredible limestone formations, the natural formed caves and have a dive in the pleasant tropical water, just tell the boatmen to stop on a beach you like and jump. 

If you go swimming or just walk around in the splendid waters keep your shoes on or use dive boots, sometimes there are quite sharp coral pieces and other stuff around which is not visible but has sharp edges and after having a cut is having a problem.

This area is full of breathtaking panoramas, full of excitement which makes you -gasp- oh - ah and I can't believe. Beaches are so many, nobody actually know how many, but for sure enough. In the emerald sea you will find your own private island with a beautiful white stretch of sand, there are several secluded resorts around. The whole looks like Halong Bay in Vietnam.

James Bond Island

A day trip usually includes James Bond Island 


Here are individual tours tailored for travelers who want a special touch

Check it out you will find one you like there is a wide spectrum.

Here are, among other, some day trips and short journeys close to Bangkok in Kanchanaburi west from Bangkok around the Bridge over the River Kwai and National Parks with one of the most scenic waterfall in Thailand, the Erawan Falls and some more within a short distance. Since the roads in the province are quite good and a four lane motorway connects to the capital the is are ideal side trips into jungle with comfort from the capital. 

Just check and click from you PC or mobile device and we pick you up, just like that.

Girls Pictures from different SEA Asian Countries 

Here are plenty of pictures of Thai and other SEA girls. Not all are beauties but most look quite pretty, what they all have in common is most are nice young women. 

The ones working in the night-shift have one more absolute positive asset a guy has a good chance to do something with them, although it cost some money, but what's the problem? When I go to have something to eat also payment is required and that horizontal pleasure is really worth it.
