It's been interesting reading all the postings here. I am a newbie here. My name is Hanz from Indonesia. I am going to Bangkok this month. I will arrive in BKK on July 25th and head home on the 31st. Is there anyone happen to be on a visit to Thailand on that period? I would love to meet with you. And hey.. maybe we can take a tour together. I'm going with my girlfriend and her friend (total 3 pax).
This is our first trip to Thailand and we are a little bit not sure of whether or not we should take a day-trip tour there. We know we want to go to Phuket and take a boat trip around the island for one day and then to Phi Phi island for one day. But we are still browsing the internet on how to get to Phuket from Bangkok. And we plan to either take the plane or the bus. Any recommendation?
My girlfriend doesn't really want to take a tour because she doesnt really like being tied to the schedule. But when i ask her if she knows where to go in Phuket, what transportation to use, which boat to rent, where to eat and bla bla bla.. she replied no. So i'm trying to convince her that maybe a tour is our best solution because we get everything aranged for us.
Do you think it's going to be easy to arrange our own trip in Phuket (the boat, transportation, hotel, etc) for one day or is it better to take an all-included tour?? And which one is cheaper?
Anyways.. i would really love to meet with any of you in Bangkok if it's possible. Just drop me an email at justhanz at gmail dot com. Maybe we can go hunt for cheap stuff at chaktuchak (sorry for the spelling.. hehe) or something =)
Hope to hear from you all!
