Aryaa’s Pure Indian Vegetarian Restaurant 5 stars
Everytime I visit Bangkok, one name that tingles at the back of my head is Aryaa's Vegetarian Indian restaurant. A very lively ambience with mouth watering classy home delicacies from all over the Southern and Northern parts of India along with Chinese food to create variance.It's a good place to relax and visit with family or friends and spend an evening on yummy apetite building chats.. and nothing could be more refreshing than their variety of juices and drinks.Of course not to forget the greeting and on time services from the staff with a strong helping attitude.

Tiger Temple Thailand
I would ask all people that are thinking of visiting this place not to do so due to the poor treatment of the tigers. If you log on to www Care for the Wild you can read a full report about the Tiger Temple. I love Tigers and have adopted one for years from Care for the Wild and while in Thailand intended to visit there. when I mentioned my intention to Edwin who runs the Animal Rescue Centre in Thailand, he strongly advised against it. He then showed me the Care for the Wild report. Once you have read this, if you love animals as I do you will not visit this place.

Wildlife Rescue in Thailand 5 stars
For those interested in Wildlife there is an Animal Rescue Centre in Thailand that is near to the town of Hue Hin, which is approx 3 hrs from Bangkok. At the centre that is run by a Dutchman named Edwin there is a variety of wild animals and birds that have all been rescued from various places. At the centre that is open to the public free of charge, one can wander around the many cages and enclosers to see the animals and birds, but one is not allowed to feed them. The reason for this is that it is hoped that a lot of the animals presently held at the centre will be able to be returned to the wild. The centre always has a number of volunteers who come from many different countries that help to clean out the cages, inclosers and to give the animals ect dishes of food as well as making up objects that can offer stimulation to avoid them from becoming streesed during their captivity. These volunteers like myself pay to work as volunteers with the money raised being used to help cover the costs of rescuing and looking after all kinds of wildlife. It can be hard work at times, but the satisfaction of knowing that you have been able to help far out weighs the work involved. I have worked as a volunteer at two places in South Africa and the one mentioned above in Thailand.

Not as bad as it seems 5 stars
I think there should be some information about the political situation in Thailand for fellow travelers, which I hope is helpful. Last week in both Bangkok and Pattaya there was an emergency rule enforced. This means groups cannot meet for rallies, such as the ones which saw the extreme violence. In truth, these events do not have any real bearing on visitors, unless they want to get mixed up in the problem. Anyone coming to Bangkok will not find tanks and army personel in the streets. There was some inconvenience when roads were blocked by taxi drivers, but that was about as bad as it got. My message is: Life continues as normal in Thailand.

Leave the handbrake off! 4 stars
This will be useful for anyone taking a rental car in Thailand, and the unwritten rule applies to just about everywhere in the country. Obviously the busier cities have multi storey car parks - what they do not have is parking meters. Great as though that is, parking the car can mean 'doubling up' in store parks or big parking areas. The rule is that you leave the handbrake off (unless its on a slope of course! )The reason for this is that even if the car is parked in a set space, the attendants will allow arriving cars to park across the front of others. When the blocked in car needs to get out, they simply push the obstructing car out of the way - but that doesn't work if some inconsiderate driver has locked the handbrake full on. Lock the car, but leave the handbrake off!!

Use another one!! 1 stars
I don't really like offering negative tips but this will help anyone on a tight budget and believes this place is the normal cost. The average price for internet use in Bangkok is 1 Baht a minute, sometimes 1.5 Baht a minute. This works out at 60 Baht an hour. Anyone staying at the Nana Hotel or nearby in any of the hotels around Soi 4 Nana, might be tempted to call into the local internet cafe. I would recommend looking for somewhere else. The cost is an amazing 50 Baht for 15 minutes which works out at 200 Baht an hour. Quite unbeleivable and although there is a notice on the door, not many read this on the way in. The internet cafe is about 20 yeards past the entrance to the Nana Hotel, on the right hand side. Pass it by!!

Featured Thai Cuisin!
Hi all,

I'd like to enjoy Thai cuisin in city center in Bangkok like: Tum Yam Gong Seafood, Glutinous Rice with Mango, and many Thai food. It doesn't has to be expensive or luxury but must be very special, having Thai atmosphere. Could you tell me where should I go?

Ah, where can I join in some live music bar serving Thai hotpot, allowing people to sing and instrument players make music for you? I once enjoyed and couldn't wait to have fun again!

Above questions are for places in the city center of Bangkok.

If anybody's staying in Bangkok and able to hang around with us, we'd be very happy (we're a couple). Thank you so much!!

Travel Tips, please!
I'm gonna spend a seven-day holiday in Bangkok, Thailand. I booked A-One Bangkok Hotel and the reserved is fixed. I will be staying in Bangkok for the whole 7 days. Besides hanging around at night in Patpong, show watch, bar drinking etc, is there any suggestion for traveling around the city at day time? Should I take part in to a local tour?

Asia via Kuwait 3 stars
As this economic gloom gets worse, sourcing the best value flights will be vital if we all want to continue with our love of travel. I have used good and bad airlines in my trips around Asia, and on the long haul journeys from Europe to Asia, tend to go for the Middle East. stop. But I've never flown Kuwait. In the value for money area, the flight was very cheap, and this was peak season. I was told the flights would be awful, but they weren't. For UK bound travelers, the best option is to connect with the Kuwait - New York flight which stops in London en route. Its a new 777 with plenty of legroom. The service is OK, the food average and the entertainment, again, fine, without being fantastic. Using Kuwait gave me a saving of something like 30% over all the other fares The airline doesn't go to great lengths to claim to be anything more than a way of getting you from Asia to Europe without hassle.The flights were on time, and the connection in Kuwait, just 2 hours. One small drawback - Kuwait do not serve alcohol, but if you cannot manage without an alcoholic drink for 12 hours, then you have a problem!

Taxi Airport fares 4 stars
This would be useful for anyone staying in the Sukhumvit 20-24 area, and making their way to the airport. Its not a journey I usually make, but I was staying at a friends apartment before leaving Thailand for a short trip. The fare without the expressway tolls was 209 Baht. with the toll fare an extra 40 Baht. I know there are taxi drivers offering tourists a fare of 600 Baht from out side the Rembrant Hotel and the Queens Park Hotel.. These are just normal taxis, not limos, so there is absolutely no advantage in using them. When you do get in the cab, just make sure the meter is on. The saving of 400 Baht (about €10) may not be significant to some, but others it may make a big diffrerence. Up to you!

Not the best but still good 4 stars
Thailands medical facilites have been looked at by most of the western press and the conclusion has been that the country has some of the best medical care in the world. The most famous, Bumungrad, lives off this reputation. But what about other places, where Thai people go? These are not government hospitals which are not great, but I go for a doctor prescription at a Thai private hospital which is very good. This is the Mayo Hospital where I get excellent attention, the service is quick ( no waiting time) and its very inexpensive. Some nurses speak a litle English, but most of the doctors can hold a good conversation. As a cost effective alternative, these less publicised places are worth routing out.

Watch out for the Water Buffalo 3 stars
Many people flatly refuse to drive in Thailand, and especially Bangkok. I have to agree there seems little point in having a car in this jam packed city. But out in the rural roads, its very pleasant driving, although there can be a few suprises around the corner. Last year an elephant seemed determined to set some sort of record in the number of crashes he was responsible for as he wandered at will along a major road near Lampang. However this latest incident was as mad as it can get in Bangkok. There was a water buffalo on the main expressway from Don Maung airport to the city centre. I wasn't driving at the time, but a passenger alongside a friend, who was quite surprised to see one of these animals of limited intelligence staring him down on the centre lane. Cars were swerving to avoid hitting this substantial being, who was totally oblivious to the chaos he was causing. But the question remains. Given the only way onto the expressway is on the slipway which has toll booths at the entrance, how on earth did this animal manage to get on the expressway. This is Thailand!!

Care on the Zebra 4 stars
I think its worth offering advice again on the dangers of crossing roads in Bangkok. Perhaps the most dangerous place is that black and white striped section of the road, known to most as a safe pedestrian crossing point. Not so in Bangkok. Last week whilst half way across the Zebra crossing , one driver flashed his lights at me and sped up, to indicate I was to get out of the way.On my nearby main road a new warning sign and orange flashing light have been put up, in the hope that drivers may like to slow down or even stop for pedestrians. Its made no difference and I would suggest that unless you are familiar with the car dodging techniques which locals employ, use the overhead bridges. Much safer, but more effort!!

Eat in the Street 5 stars
Whilst there are some top class restaurants in Bangkok, the city has great street food. The plastic chairs set around metal tables do nothing to detract from the tasty cuisine. In the tourist spots the type of thing available tends to be barbecued chicken which is easy enough to point to and ask for. In the places such as Lard Phrao where I live, the food available is far more Thai, and there is no English to be found. But again, its not too difficult to order things such as duck and noodles, fish or pork. Papaya salad can be made up in minutes, but beware - this is the real deal, and is as hot and spicy as they come. Usually the meats are hung in the stall so again point and just say noodles or rice. If its a take away,say "Go Home" - Its not a suggestion that they do this, but is understood that you want to take it home with you. Costs for pork and rice, chicken fried rice and the like are 30 -35 Baht a portion Less than a €.. If the portions look small, ask for two - sawang (song).

Bangkok Scam 5 stars
As many will know, I am very fond of Thailand and the people of the country However, there are some illegal schemes which travelers should know about which may end up costing money, but the operators are from outside Thailand. My friend has just arrived back from an experience he wants to forget. Without going into detail, the scam starts with a friendly approach asking where are you from,. The next move is to say they have a relative who is going to that place, and can the traveler give some advice on going there. This then moves onto an invitation to visit their house to have achat about this, and then there is an attempt to introduce the traveler to some gambling schemes, which they say will make both parties some money. The warning is: If approached, walk away, do not get in a taxi with these people and no matter how plausible it may seem, the whole scheme is a fraud. They are currently operating around the top of Soi 18 amd 20, but I know they also operate in shopping malls. Be careful!!

Asoke Open Bars 4 stars
The late night street bars which open when the clubs and go go bars close are becoming quite sophisticated, especially around the entrance to the Sukhumvit MRT station. These used to be a table and a couple of plastic chairs, with a makeshift bar of spiirits lined up. But last night I passed about 10.30pm and they were setting up large umberellas, a proper bar with a full range of booze. and some decent seats. Bangkok is one of the few places where a drink can be enjoyed at anything between 1am and 6am, out in the street!! Its suddenly become more comfortable, and almost seems like a real bar - except for the smokey bus which passes every few minutes.

Overland Into Thailand 5 stars
This new rule is something I'm sure will concern travelers who intend entering Thailand by an overland route, such as Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos. For whatever reason, the immigration rule has been changed so the 'visa on arrival' only extends to 15 day days, instead of the previous 30 days. It doesn't apply to arrivals by air, so the 30 day visa is still OK for that form of transport, We think, the rule about 90 days maximum ( 3 x 30 days consecutively) will remain for air arrivals, but nobody is too sure if this also applies to the 15 day rule. Its getting increasingly important to have the correct visa here, and perhaps getting a visa issued from your local Thailand Consulate is more sensible - in the end it saves time and hassle
