i think Minty's maybe got the hump in his private life as i honestly had him down as decent fellow.

BTW i know a few taxi drivers who are millionaires and they do what they want when they want.

 One should never judge a book by its cover, there is a massive difference between a taxi driver and an owner of taxi/taxis. :thumbsup:

The man obviously as issues, I can understand someone getting passionate about football or religion but to defend travel agents is weird to the extreme.
I think I earn just a little bit more than a shelf filler.    :rolleyes:

Aye, it seemed wierd, Lurtz predicted he wouldn't reach 300 posts, his bizarre rants cemented that expulsion!

Been thinking about the travel agent thing again.  I can see why they would be handy for the very rich, the elderly and students looking to book a gap year type thing.  The last time I booked a package holiday with them though I spent hours in a roasting hot shop, doing what seemed like going round and round in circles.  Personally for my requirements I'd much rather sit on the couch & take time to find deals on flights, hotels and to look at reviews of stuff on trip advisor etc.  I'm also a fan of a 'rough guide' or lonely planet' type book, like to make the most of my time away & try to see as much as possible while there.  Had a couple of holidays when I was younger that just seemed like a waste of time wandering about and doing very little, try to make my time away more productive.

Getting back on topic though.  My old man is over from Thailand at the minute (he lives out there most of the time) he's wanting me to go over to visit him and has offered to pay my flights.  He stays in Pataya, but to be honest I don't really fancy staying there too long and would much rather see more of the country, not really interested in punting, although never say never.

When is the best time to go/when should I avoid?  I don't like it too hot, but some sun, shorts and t-shirts would be nice.  I prefer to keep busy and see things, not really interested in lying on a beach for a fortnight.  Some sort of arranged tour of the country be my best bet or would I be better to just get a 'rough guide' and work out what I want to do from that and make my own way around?

Very long answer short, yes sort your own schedule out, and arrange travel and transport when here if your timings are semi flexible. Cheap and easy from any major city with bus train or internal flights. Then maybe arrange a tour of the places you want to see when you arrive there. Pattaya is not a good place if you want to be a culture vulture/normal tourist. But if your dads here you could use as a base and move around from there.  If you only have two weeks I would suggest a couple of nights BKK then Pattaya to see the old man then an Island trip to Kho Chang (a couple of hours from Pattaya)  Then that’s covered most bases. It starts to get to complicated if you want to visit too many places in to short a time.

When I’m back at my home PC I will send you some useful links that I’ve used before if you want.

Cheers Monty, much appreciated.
I can get 3 weeks off from work, so would probably try to do a 3 week trip and see as much as possible.  Is over Christmas a good time to go?  Get 10 days off work then, so I can do a longer trip then and split it over two years worth of holiday allowance.

When I was in Australia a couple of years back we did loads in 3 weeks, met some girls from Bradford working in a bank, who had been there for 8 years.  Got chatting and they asked how long we were in Adelaide, we told them 2 days and then told them what we had done previously and what we were going to do after we left there.  Told us we were seeing more of Oz in 3 weeks than they had in 8 years  :hi: Needed a holiday when I got home mind you...

So while I wouldn't need to see everything, I'd like to cram a fair bit into a 3 week holiday  :drinks:

Right CJ a more detailed answer for you I hope.

3 weeks is probably  the optimum time. Once on a 3 week trip using BKK as a base I visited Chieng Mai, Siem Reap (Cambodia)  Hua Hin and Kanchanaburi

 I usually take a 20 night trip in May then if I can fit it in (time and financially) a shorter 10-12 night jaunt later on around October - November time. As for time of year, personally I would not choose Christmas as the basics are more expensive over the high season Hotels and flights. Also more crowded and you may find some bus, train or internal flights booked up because of the holidays. Don’t think because it’s a Buddhist country they don’t use any excuse for time off work. But if that’s the time you have then that’s the time you have and I’m sure you wont be to put out because its Christmas.

You mentioned in one of your earlier post about a Lonely Planet guide an excellent idea as a guide but don’t treat it as a bible as businesses change hands and staff come and go so the recommendations may be avoids and vice versa a month later. I used a couple for my first few trips and found them very useful for the practical and customs & culture sections so I didn’t make an arse of myself as soon as I stepped of the plane.

Difficult to advise you on where to go and what to see as I don’t know you but a few day in BKK are a must for any tourist. Then it “up to you” as the Thais say.  An excellent site I use to give an overview of areas and places is this one;

http://www.sawasdee.com/

Gives info on practically all of the main areas and some more “off the beaten track” places with info on how to get there, train, bus times etc a really good overview site before you decide if you want to spend some time in a place.

 Then when you do decide on a place usually a Google search will come up with a few sites of interest. E.G when I wanted to find out more about Kho Chang I found this site http://iamkohchang.com/  and when I wanted to go to Chiang Mai I found this one  http://www.chiangmai-guideline.com/index.html

Both very useful as give a slightly less “glossy” view than the Sawassde one.

Some other useful links for you;

Good  comprehensive train guide covers all major routes stations etc;

http://www.seat61.com/Thailand.htm

This may be useful if there are particular festivals or celebrations’ you want to see or as in the case of Sonkran avoid;

http://www.thaiworldview.com/feast/feast.htm

Learn a bit of Thai before you go please and thank you go a long way in any language;

Don’t forget the ‘elf ‘n’ safety from our own lovely government.

http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/travel-advice-by-country/asia-oceania/thailand

Hope this helps I’ve left off “punting” advice as you said it’s not your main priority and if your visiting you old man in Pattaya he will put you straight there. But in practically all Thai towns and cities there is p4p available mainly a discreet Thai scene and a more overt Farang one.  Don’t be offended if your “straight” massage girl in a respectable shop offers you a happy ending.  :cool:
