No, there are no others :)

The Thorntree on Lonely Planet is the only other I sometimes visit as a traveller. I used to post a bit on Aardvark (http://www.aardvarktravel.net/chat/), but that was more because it was interesting from a travel business point of view (there's a lot of owners who visit there).

I'm sure there are others that specialize more in Asia. The main thing I'd look for after doing a google search is how many posts there are and how recent the latest posts have been. That'll give you a good idea of how likely you are to get a response or not!

Hi,

Travelfish ( www.travelfish.org) has some useful information on Indochina and Thailand, it also has a forum, but it isn't used as much as the travellerspoint forum.

ok, this thread is a bit old. Here's some other suggestions in case someone is surfing through old threads (like I did).

India: www.indiamike.com - This is an extensive forum with I think over 10 000 members both foreign travellers and locals discussing travel in India.

in general: www.travelblog.org/Forum/
There's not a lot of threads going on there but the people that do moderate the forums have done some extensive travel so they're always good for advice.

Try www.virtualtourist.com.au. It has huge sections on anywhere you could possibly want to go to. Forums, blogs, general advice etc… Quite useful.
