The last postee lost me. Is he being rude, or giving advice?

Nice resort in Bintan

Postby Vanyh » Mon, 28 Feb 2005 3:59 pm

We plan to go to Bintan in Indonesia this week end (fri-sun), which resort would you recommend?
Our idea is to RELAAAX, so we dream of a room with a nice terasse and view to the sea. Would be perfect on the ground level and not too far from the sea.

Also awhat activities would you recommend? I'd love to do snorkelling but I heard it's too early (starts end of March)

Thanks!

Your first time in Thailand, I see... you sure you really want to go to Pattaya? :shock:

Public buses in Thailand are operated by the state company BKS. Their buses to Pattaya leave from the Eastern Terminal (Ekamai), easily accessible by Skytrain, and your sole choice is 1st class aircon (good) and 2nd class non-aircon (bad). Buses are very safe, and taxis are also quite OK.

Your destination for more Bangkok info than you can shake a stick at:
