I am off to Thailand next week. Bangkok for a day or two then the Beaches. If I show up to the airport in Bangkok can I get a decent fare on a ticket RT to Phuket Krabbi at a decent fare or is it like the US where you have to buy a ticket in advance? What about hotels. I hate booking in advance? I guess I should have my Bangkok hotel set up for the night I arrive but after that I would like to play it by ear. Can I do that or do I need to book in advance. I am not even sure where I will go in Thailand yet. I will be there July 26-Aug 7. IS it Monsoon season? I don't think so. Maybe just a little rainy for part of the day? Will I still see a lot of sunshine?
If I am looking for paradise and nice girls is Phuket the place or is it too touristy? If so , any suggestions? Foriegn girls are nice too.
PLAYING IT BY EAR
I always play it by ear when travelling.
FLIGHTS ON DEMAND
I don't know how easy it is to get a ticket at Bangkok Airport for the next flight -- it depends if the planes are full.
I've done it in the Phillipinnes and China though, just turned up at the airport..... but normally it helps to plan ahead for essential connections.
JOIN THE QUEUE
Sometimes, you even have to buy train tickets in advance -- (India and China).
There's been a lot of rain across Asia..... especially in India and China. Not sure if any of that is heading Thailand's way although it's very humid there at the moment.... 80-90%
Nice girls are all over the worl, no need to fly to Thailand for them.
In Domestic Airport have many airline Thai Airways, Air asia, Orien thai(one to go), Nok air, Bangkok Airways.
-For Thail Airways you should buy e-ticket they will give you discount 5 or 10% (not sure).
-Air asia you should call to make reserve (you have to pay a little for fee 20bath) you should not book online they always double charge to credit card.
-Orien thai you can buy ticket at domestic airport and go no need to make reservetion. This airline they will charge you same price in every seat.
-Bangkok Airways have flight to krabi. you should check with they always have promotion. coz now it's the low reason to travel in the south and ocean in thailand.
What kind of hotel you want to book? If you want to stay in budget hotel you should go to Khosand road. If you don't want to pay much money but you don't to stay in guesthouse you should book online you will get lower price than you walk in. Believe me. I'm Thai.
