Blogger Barbara Lanz travel agency must play often. Holiday makers looking for adventure and want to be as uncomfortable way. In the eye of the storm but that can change very quickly.
Again and again people want travel advice from me - for small islands in Thailand, "Weisch, nid as Phuket or so Züg." You usually want to also Tips for Getting - on an adventurous way, "Weisch, nid 0815 as charter-inclusive hotel Züg." I usually tell them the same thing, give them my Bangkok Hideaway on Koh Tao . And then I highly recommend each: night train south and then take the ferry that promises adventure and you do not end up at the end just in Phuket or so Züg. As I've recently done exactly this trip now, I noticed a crucial detail, a question that need to be considered it absolutely:
Are you seaworthy?
Although the drive from the harbor town of Chumphon to the island only takes about one and a half hours - but which can be incredibly long. The reason: the sea is rough, very rough. Anyway in fine weather, and during storms. A nightmare for those who get seasick (which they, as has been shown, after 10 minutes to do) and a feat of strength for those who do not get seasick. After all, who does not take offense, no, who generally want nothing to do with puke on his hat, which must be prepared similar to this ferry, as if he wants to spend a relaxing day at the epicenter of a Spring Break party. Or Swiss: if you do not dress like the middle of a carnival parade, hear no Guggenmusik and already wants to take no confetti. Here, therefore, my tips for a cruise without evil:
- The ferry has two floors, you sit down in a closed room, top hats Bänkli in the fresh air. First rule, remain absolutely outside.
Advantage: people throw up in the fresh air even, thanks to wind but you can smell it at least nothing.
Disadvantage: Charges properly, it may become wet. But at least then it is only water ...
- Who is on top of doing the best in the middle Bänklireihe. At the edge of each are plastic chairs and potted and there, well, then there are just the ...
- Experienced Koh Tao travelers sit down. Outside. Rear. In the toilets. Sounds like a bad idea, but is actually the best.
Advantage: If the Plastikstühlchen perfectly positioned, you have both a roof over your head and back to the toilets and the rest of the passengers - and comparatively little suffering the waves.
Disadvantage: Once and turn over ists with the rest. The puking most people consider it a good idea to lie down in front of the toilet to the floor or as extras on the set of "The Walking Dead" to walk up and down.
- The top priority is and will be the focus. Who loves to travel and would like actually prefer to drink a beer, can of course do so. But if he is one of my kind, ie one who "suck" just panicked already at his word, hear the music and focusing the horizon. And even if we do not Plastiksäckli, they should necessarily be numerous in the hand luggage. For all those who go cool on the boat and then sneak relatively quickly relatively greyish around you and do not know where to körbeln now.

Places to stay in Cambodia2005-12-02 05:09:47 by islandmanruss
Cambodia is still a bit of the wild west. I have never had a problem finding a place to stay in Cambodia. Prices range from 5 to 25 dollars per night. I would use a reputable travel agent in the US the first time around. Another option fly into Bangkok go see the Royal Palace and hang out around Khao San Road, which is near by, and your certian to find some travel companions there going into Cam...ry poor probably poorer than you can imagine. To a Cambodian an average digital camera cost more than most of them make in a year. So don't leave things of value laying around because they can vanish in an instant.
Don't put all your money in one place if you can help it, try to keep a stash some place.
Your American Passport should be considered one of your most valuable possesions.
Found a great deal for Sydney & Bangkok trip2002-02-23 18:18:54 by phlux
C'mon people - make the adventure yourself.
If you want to have an interesting trip - then heres how to do it:
get a ticket to someplace (I chose SE Asia) book a few nights in a place. While you have the first few nights taken care of - go around and check out all the other backpacker locations - find one that has a lot of people in it. and see if they have a bulliten board posted w...h quality packages for very cheap. They really are trying to put together good experiences for very competitive prices. for example - $35 USD for a FOUR day THREE night trek and tour through Kanchanbury north west of Bangkok. Included accomodation, all food, elephant rides, bamboo river boat rides, hikes etc...
anyway - let the adventure make itself - dont buy it.
Sorry for the rant.
