Making Reservations Through the Internet

I'm planning my honeymoon, a couple of days in Bangkok, 5 days in Koh Samui and 3 days in Dubai. The prices given by my travel agent regarding the hotels are for more expensive then the ones I find on the internet. My question is how can I know if a Thailand website is safe? I've sent an e-mail to the thai tourism authority but got no answer so far. Has anyone made a reservation using www.thaihotels.com?

Appreciate your help

This website is safe. This website company is regertered as a member of Thailand Tourism Authority (TAT). This one is the same company as


www.hotelsthailand.com (Thai version)

This company is quite big and they are top 5 of online travel agency in Thailand.

I'm thinking of going to the Sala Samui, the price in this web site is much lower then the one my travel agent got me and the hotel looks really good. Can anyone tell me how the beach is, if there's many restaurants around...

My girlfriend would rather go to Hua Hin, but I'm not to convinced, Samui seems much more lively, with better beaches, any thoughts about this?

I have booked hotels on the net for vacations in Thailand and that has been a success. I have used www.hotelthailand.com, www.asiatravel.com etc. I have posted trip reports with pictures from our trips to Thailand and Dubai on my homepage http://gardkarlsen.com. Maybe you can find some useful information there :-)

Within Thailand try Beachsiam.com, for Dubai I recently got a real cheap deal at the Landmark Plaza for about $80 from Dubai.travelreporter.

I've used www.asiatravel.com for the past 6 years and found them very professional. Payment was always to the hotel at the end of the stay so little financial risk.

I used precisionreservations.com and found they had excellent prices and I got excellent service from them. Quick response to questions, too.
