    Koh Samet

    by ilovetravel1 Written Mar 5, 2010

    My friend and I visited Koh Samet without young ladies so explored and found hidden beaches we had not found before. They were known but not by us and although small they were beautiful and we came away with lots of ideas for the future when we visit again.
    I would recommend this island to anyone who wants a quiet holiday with soft white sand and blue water; ideal for couples.

    Monsoon season! YEAH!

    by bulldogtwo Written Jun 10, 2008

    Yeah, you're going to be right smack dab in the middle of monsoon season! I would suggest a really good lightweight rainjacket/suit and foot gear. Lots of rain, but I wouldn't say gloom. The upside, at least for me is that I like the monsoon season. It's a really neat time of the year and if you've never been in a monsoon downpour, then you're in for an adventure, just stay on high ground! The rain coming down can be thunderous. (I don't know where you are from, you didn't post that!) To talk to someone you literally have to yell into their ear. I wont say that it can't get old but it is something to experience. I miss it so much that I am considering going back to Thailand my next trip during ther monsoon season! Yeah, the beaches will be pretty empty. Also, accomodations rates and other rates will be down considerably.
    Back to the rain, did I mention to stay on high ground?! Even though yuo'll be in the middle of the season it probably will not rain constantly, or even for hours at a time. It could. But when it does rain it often really comes down.
    Have fun!!!!! Enjoy it, stay on high ground! :)

    Boat cruise at Ayuthaya

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a relaxing boat cruise at Ayuthaya and you will experience the tranquility and simple lifestyle of the people here. Ayuthaya is an ancient city located about 1 hour north of Bangkok and is a must visit when in Thailand.

    Try the monorail transport system

    Try the monorail transport system which started operation in Dec 1999. Although it is not very impressive compared to those in other cities, this is a chance to experience the local lifestyle and to beat the notorous traffic jams. However, the ticket fare is rather expensive, so you will noticed not many people are using it.

    Dusit Palace and Vimanmek Mansion

    by victorwkf Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dusit Palace and Vimanmek Mansion are places you should visit although they may not be in your itenary. The Dusit Palace is very big and is located in northern Bangkok near the zoo. Within the Dusit Palace is the Vimanmek Mansion (see photo), the largest teak building in the world. The mansion and its surroundings showcases the interesting history of Thailand's monarchy, and the Dusit Palace and it's big landscape surroundings is a very good place for relaxation in busy Bangkok.

    Local fish container

    I think it's hardly find in Thailand nowaday. All made from wood and bamboo and all are functional such as bamboos on 2 sides help the container for floating and a curve wood above is a holder.
