Package Tour : Bangkok-Pattaya

Hi,

Planning a week-long vacation to Bangkok in February 2017. Need a budget package tour covering highlights of Bangkok and Pattaya.

Any recommendations ?

If you want a package tour then do you not by definition need to go to a travel agent in your own country and book one there?

But it is quite easy to arrange your travel personally online. You just need to do some research. Strangers here on this forum cannot design your holiday!

There are many posts from Indian tourists. Most of them also have a 7 or 8 day trip. With a computer search out some of the posts from your fellow compatriots and see what they are asking about. (Too often they want to do more than time allows!)

You will need hotels for each night. There are many posts for hotels in Bangkok. Indian tourists with wife and kids often choose Pratunam area and Siam area. Bunch of guys out for nightlife look into a hotel in the Nana and Asoke areas where you can walk to bars and restaurants, use Skytrain, etc.

For Pattaya advice go to the Pattaya forum. Same thing there many posts from Indian tourists asking about hotels and nightlife and where to eat.

At the top of every forum page there is a green banner section. (Use a computer, not all options show on a phone.) This green banner section has a choice for "THINGS to DO" and other advice. There are FAQs on the side for general information.

If you need a package tour go to a travel agency in your hometown. Some hotels they may suggest could be in less popular areas with fewer choices you can walk to.

Bangkok is a huge city, much bigger than where you come from. There is no one part of Bangkok perfect for everything. Read up on how to use city rail service and meter taxis.

Up to you!

Mumbai with population over 20 million is around twice the size of Bangkok.

Sound advice from Infidelal, just not top marks for geography :-)

Oh yeah, if your travel agent wants you to use one of the popular flights from India arriving in the middle of the night - think about it first! For flights arriving 1 a.m. to 6 a.m you may have to still pay full price for a hotel room even if you only use the room for a few hours. (Many hotel rooms are booked from around noon one day to noon the next day.)

Arrival in the middle of the night also means fewer cheap transportation choices. Usually just a taxi. If traveling in a big group you may need a van. Most meter taxis are small Toyota - Nissan size 4 door sedans. They have limited room in the trunk/boot for luggage too.

There are FAQs and many posts for transportation from BOTH airports and to Pattaya.

Up to you!
