I fancy a trip to Thailand but don't know the best way to go about it, do you book a package with one of the main tour operators or do you book your own flights, hotel and transfers?

Offline Jerboa

If you want to pay through the nose book a package, from my first trip to Los I just got a flight and didn't book a hotel, in this day of the internet there is no need to use a tour agent, where are you planning on going and how long you will be in country?

Offline Jimmyredcab

No, you don't book a package.
I would normally book my flight first and then start to sort out hotels, the advantage is that you can choose your flight times and are not restricted to 7 or 14 nights.
Transfers are not a problem, taxis are very cheap in Thailand.
My favourite booking site is Expedia, I have just booked a trip to America at a very good rate.
You can also check out hotels on Trivago.
Don't change up any currency in the UK, the banks are open 24/7 at Bangkok airport.

Where you going? Maybe someone could give you a heads up.
I never book a hotel when going to Thailand, I arrive and have a regular hotel I use, Thailand can change fast and construction could be right outside your window, ask to see the room b4 you part with money and have a scout around to make sure your happy. if your arriving late book for one night and take it from there, you should also ask for a discount if your happy, most will give you a free night if your booking 10 to 14 nights. Also security box access, is it secure? is it in the lobby and are the hinges visible on the outside? Do they charge for ladies staying overnight? Is there a night watchman?

Just book a flight and sort the rest out when your there, if you have specific questions on hotels, locations etc post and I will try to answer. In my view it's a place everyone should visit even though it's rising in cost and not the same as years ago it's still the best place on the planet for a filthy holiday

Bangkok is indeed pretty plug-and-play but in case the OP is completely new to long haul asian 3rd world it's probably worth suggesting have at least a short list of hotels grubbed from Lonely Planet or something before you go. If your taxi driver tells you its awful and wants to show you a better one, firmly insist he does not (a common con trick: you will be ripped off if you believe it). On the other hand if you are an experienced traveller and just turn up with a backpack, then by all means just head for your RLD of choice and walk around till you see a room you like at a price you like, which is basically what I do, though I rarely bother with Thailand these days if I can help it. To borrow Jimmy's immortal phrase, "they all look like they've been whacked in the face with a wok." (Not that that stops him going back again and again.) You practically need a DNA test-kit to tell them apart sometimes (though that might be handy for avoiding ladyboys duh). Don't forget to do all the main tourist stuff as well -- all pretty spectacular. And if you have enough of the fumes and crowds, jump on a bus to Pattaya or further, or a plane to anywhere else (there's lots of good punting locations within an hour or so flight).

Bad advice for a Newbie.   :thumbsdown:

You will be very tired on arrival plus you will have no idea where to head for.

Book a room for the first couple of nights at least, if you are not happy with the room you can then shop around for something better, there are hotels for all budgets from £10 to £100 a night.   :hi:

I will give you the same challenge that I have given many others ----------

Find me a clip on You-Tube that shows beautiful girls in Pattaya.

Most are rough old dogs, not all obviously.     :hi: :hi:

Granted you may struggle to find video clips but I have had many stunners, more pricey form gogo bars but there about and if you learn a little thai that also gets a much better service in my humble opinion

With the utmost respect, your idea of a stunner may be slightly different to mine, even Go-Go girls are ugly bitches once they wash off the makeup.    :hi:

As with every girl thai, english, American it's all down to who personal choice.

I agree with you there are a lot of ruff and average gogo bar girls.

Prostitutes look so much better in artificial light. I remember in the days of safe SW pickups in Glasgow (many many years back), you could find a tolerable looking prossie on the edge of Blytheswood Square one evening and walk back to your car with her without it feeling like a complete walk of shame. Do the same thing in daylight down near the Meadows and People's Palace and you'd look around like she wasn't with you.

It's not that all prossies are ugly. An awful lot are just very average in the looks department. In civvy street, what makes a girl attractive owes a great deal to her interests in life, the way she talks, her body language, sparkling personality, taste in clothing, hair, make-up, music and other people, and the things and people that she cares about.

Such things quickly become atrophied in prossies. As they do in wives that have "given up hope", career schemies and long-term jobless. They have little joy left for anyone including themselves so they fake it. A prostitute sells her fanny (or "rents" it). Which at least is offering a service. If she puts what heart and soul that she can into providing a good service she may achieve a sense of self-worth through doing her job well, for herself and others, over and above financial reward.

Anyone can do this. Even a shelf-stacker in Poundland. I've sometimes watched such people enjoying stacking a shelf faster, more efficiently,  better than might be required and take my hat off to them. Or a bartender who polishes everything behind the bar in odd moments, getting all the beer bottles facing the same way and unused glasses sparkling. He/she has a genuine love-for-oneself as a good human being with enough left over to give a genuine warm smile to the next person that works in, relate personally rather than mechanically, and pour a pint with skill.

Compare that to most prossies and no, they don't give a shit. Being ugly is just part and parcel of not having a fucking life, and not necessarily the cause.

That a good price, as Klm is usually pricey, I got Emirates for 430.

Are their planes staffed by cute little Thai women?

If so then I'd have to keep the table down for the duration of the flight.  :blush:

It is no longer peak season, you can't get cheap flights in Jan/Feb.

Don't forget your umbrella.     :hi:

Fuck me, a holiday in Thailand is plug-n-play ffs. Go on Skyscanner, insert credit card, drink free booze on plane, shag prostitutes, come home happy.

Yes but before you go read up to date info, especially if you're a newbie, so you don't get ripped off.

Indeed. And I think I said a similar thing earlier in the thread. Yet the thread is still going. A bit like someone who asks advice on a punt and then keeps coming back to ask more advice instead of getting on with it. So I think, all part of the initiation.

Offline Monmouth

Thanks for the info, can you suggest some cheap but not too grubby hotels in Pattaya?
