What is the best way to travel from Bangkok to Pattaya or to ChangMai or from Pattaya to Bali. Is it better to buy tickets in Thailand or elsewhere?
I will be travelling the end of February beginning of March for three weeks. What should I not miss?? Thailand and Bali?
From Bangkok to Pattaya the best way to go is by bus - buses leave from the Eastern Bus Station (Ekamai) every 15 minutes or so.
For Bangkok to Chiang Mai, you can do plane, train or bus. If you fly, look into AirAsia (www.airasia.com) they're a new budget airline that are doing cracking fares for that trip - flight time is about 1 hour.
Otherwise train is better than bus but also more expensive - both take around 10-12 hours, so an overnight trip if the most common way to do it.
Never been to Bali, so can't help you there.
Hope that helps
depends what you like. bali has an active beach scene obviously, a thriving clubbing scene in seminyak plus of course the balinese to be found up in the hills away from kuta...
