More about Bangkok International Youth Hostel


by jessmorg

We stayed inthe Bangkok Youth Hostel the first night we got to bangkok becasue we didnt know how easy it would be to find a place to stay, turns out we got dropped off at khao san rd. where there were tons of places to stay, and the youth hostel was way out of the way. the tuk-tuk driver didnt even know where it was even with thai directions.

This waterfall was in northern thailand, when we were on our day trip, elephat riding and visiting the tribal villages.

this bridge was actually falling apart as we walked across it. and beingabout 30 feet down to the river below added to the danger of this bridge.

"Angthong Marine Park"

The marine park is about a 45 minute boat ride from Koh Samuai, a southern island. We went on a Kyaking Day trip, we hiked up to this lake resovoir inside a small island. The water was such a beautiful colour, the kayak trip was amazing! the company was called Blue Stars. I highly reccommend it!

"bophut beach"

This is the very edge of bophut beach in Koh Samuai. A beautiful place.

"Big Buddah Beach"

This Buddah is on the aptly named "big buddah Beach" in koh samuai, its a nice temple on a small outlet off the beach, with the big buddah, a number of other statues by the shore, and you can purchase a patio stone to pave and help contribute to the temple, you can sign your name on your patio stone and place it wherever you want on the temple floor.


If you are on any of the islands, rent a moped and take a full day or two and drive areound the whole island.
get a map and go to all the sights on the island.

On Koh Samuai, there is the big buddah, there is numerous waterfalls, as well as a secret garden at one of the highest peaks on the island, a aquarium and tiger zoo, Many Temples, even just check out the other beaches that you arent staying at. Ridingmopeds is fun!


There are many different Buddhist Temples all across Koh Samuai, this one was a small temple with a school behind it and a very interesting sight in it...... a mummified monk.

Party supplies

by kin79


I just love the VT forum.. So wanted to know if there is a party supply shop near Amari Atrium. My husband will be staying there and I want him get balloons and other party supplies for my daughter's 1st birthday. If anyone else knows of any other store, U can also mention it (pls specify the address as well)

Thanks a ton

Just go to the Big C (discount department store like Wal Mart)on Rajaprarob Rd or even Central world, (a big department store) It was in the protest area and could have burned down as I left Thailand when the fires started this past May, but if it is open, they have supplies. Cheers Tommy x

Big C was burned and it wasn't open as of 2 weeks ago. Much of Centralworld is scheduled to reopen September 28th. There should be something there.

There is a specialist balloon shop on Petchburi Rd not that far from the Amari. Can try to find the address if intersted. That is where I got balloons for my daughter's 3rd birthday. You can also hire one of those clown chaps tht make animals and things out of balloons.
Otherwise any Central, Robinson, Tesco, Carrefour etc have party supplies. Paragon and and Emporium certainly do.
Cheesecake House on Ekkamai have nice cakes. So does Coffee Beans by Dao. Google both.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Chinese New Year

by Blatherwick

I went to Chinatown for Chinese New Years in 2000. It was just a great time. I watch this guy climb up a pole around 20 feet high. Then another guy climbed up the pole and let the first guy stand on his shoulders at the top. The top guy then jumped off to simulate the falling of the old year. They did this every 15 minutes.

Then the dragon dancing came. It was the coming year of the dragon and I managed to touch the dancing dragon for good luck. Even better, a bird pooped on me which the Chinese keep telling me is good luck but I just think that they need an excuse for laughing as I get pooped on.

Daytour around Bangkok

by suraphona

Daytour around Bangkok
Among the 'must see' attractions in Thailand is a visit
to Ayuthya, the former capital of Thailand situated 76
kms north of Bangkok. The principal sights are the
gigantic bronze statues of Wat Mongkol Borpith, Wat
Srisanpetch and Wat Panangcherng.This tour also
includes a boat trip to Bang- Pa- In, the former Royal
Summer Residence, which represents a fine example of Thai architecture.

Thai Music

by YaaDong

People who want to learn the Thai language should listen to some Thai music.Listening to Thai music is a good way to improve your listening skill as well as to learn new words .

One band that is easy to listen to with many meaningful lyrics is a band called Loso (very famous rock band in Thailand).They have many albums from heavy rock song with stinging lylics like Mai tong huang chun "don't worry about me"(Lo Society album) ,smooth sweet melodic love songs like Som Sarn (Entertainment album).For people who don't know Loso "The Best of Loso" is a good introduction to this band's music.

If you don't know what to listen to then just pick a CD cover you like and start improving your Thai listening skill.

Keep Everything Light

by Strikinsmile

Besides your luggage, bring a body bag (something you can keep close to yourself) to place your wallet, passport, keys, shades and other essentials. You may use this as you traipse down Bangkok lane. You might want to bring light-coloured shirts, shorts or pedal pushers for the blazing Bangkok sun. Sight-seeing requires endless walking under the sun. You don’t want to really sweat it out in dark-coloured and collared shirts, do you? Slip-ons and/or rubber shoes are great for walking. I always bring a complete set of toiletries each time I travel because I don’t like hotel shampoos and conditioner. I’d rather bring my own brand so I won’t have to buy. A bottle of rubbing alcohol and some band-aids would be useful. If you’re using manual camera, be sure to bring several rolls of film as you cannot live on one roll alone. If you’re using digital, just shoot and snap away! Make sure you have enough memory in your SD card. Don’t forget to bring your camera and mobile phone chargers. You might want to bring an umbrella just in case the weather gets extremely hot and a fan. Lots of tissue and sunblock too.
