Hello,

 

Around the end of may I plan on travelling to a few places in Thailand.

 

This is the rough plan so far,

 

Arrive in Bangkok and stay for around 2 nights

 

Bangkok to Phuket and stay in Phuket for around a week

 

Phuket to Koh Phangan and stay in Phangan for 3 nights for Full moon party.

 

Koh Phangan to Koh Tao and stay in Tao for a week.

 

Then Tao to Pattaya and stay in Pattaya for 1/2 weeks.

 

 

 

Can anyone give me some options of transport for these locations? We will would like to do the travelling for cheap but not uncomfortable.

 

As much info as possible please :)

BKK to Phuket get the bus. Im sure it will take around 16 hours. You can get the VIP bus (ie it has air con and comfier seats) for small money

 

As for heading over to Samui/Phangan, just get the bus from Phuket, then a ferry over. Not the fastest way to travel, but if you are on a budget, thats the way to do it.

 

Remember, Air Asia offer VERY cheap rates these days. So maybe check their website to see if its in your budget. You will get to Phuket within the hour as opposed to a day later (and knackered from sitting about !)

 

I wouldnt consider taking the train for long journeys. very uncomfortable and slow

Yeah i'd have to say the bus as often as possible buddy. Airasia flights are around 2,000 baht after tax and fees so you can save the hastle of a 8-9 hour bus ride from Bkk to Phuket

For help or advice with Vehicle Inspections and Repair anywhere in Thailand, send me a PM!

Im also going to be travelling quite a bit next trip (had some great advice from luvyoulongtime!) Hitting Cambodia-Chang Mai-Pattaya-Koh Chang.

Checked Air Asia and apprx 80 return for Bangkok - Phuket, no way would i do 16 hrs on a bus to save that, the time itself is more valuable.

My thoughts exactly, but some people really need to save their cash at every opportunity, which is fair enough. My first trip 16 years ago was like that. You can still have a fabulous time in LOS on small money. Its obviously A LOT more fun when you have a bigger wad of cash in your wallet though :D

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
