Just reading over the posts, me n my 2 mates are coming over to Bkk on the 9th June and going the FMP in June but where not booking no accomodation, just gonna head down there and see what happens?? this is probably not the best thing to do looking at Amits posts. I think you would give me a big thumbs down for that
looks like i'll be sleeping in the trees!! tarzan stylee! allrightyy!
Ellie did you book any accomodation in the end?
Take it easy! x
yea we booked some in the end... a lot of it was sold out tho. I'm sure it will work out for you either way... My friend said I could sort it when I was out there but oh well.
Oh ok, yeah I reckon we'll just have to get somewhere to stay on a diff island n get the boat across!! Ahh it'l be allright!! All part of the fun!! You traveling with some mates or on your own? Do you know how your gonna get down south towards the islands from bkk? I fancied the train more of an adventure than plane I reckon bt we'll have to see wht happens!!
Take it easy x
Its good ellie that you have booked in advance.Maccajm nok air and oriental thai airline is the best (have to fly to surat thani or NST)and cheap way to get koh phangan from bkk.
Also you can use lomprayah service from bkk -koh phangan.Cost is 1300B one way.
I advice you to book as soon as possible because gettting accom after getting there is rip off only.
There are some bunglows which are still vaccant.
In some cases you can book after comming there but its full of tension and can end up with worse bunglow.So,i would like to suggest that booking in advance is cool optn.
I, as a local resident, would recommend you to make booking before you arrrive here. This is as to avoid any inconvenient and time wasting in finding hotel around. As it's full moon party going on as well, it might get full and end up with what you haven't expected.
