    New here

    Hi all,

    I'm new here, I used to be on phuket info but that site seems to be down.
    Been to Thailand around 10 times now, mostly to Chiang Mai and still love that the most but to change things I'll be going to Krabi in September.
    If you guys (and girls) have tips for me on what to do and see there please reply

    Another question I have is does anyone know where to buy a decent GPS system in Thailand? Garmin or so would be great. I'm thinking of renting a car and driving to Phuket from time to time.

    kind regards
    Doc

    WTTB Doc.
    I drive a bit to Krabi from Hkt , and its a very pleasant 3 hour or so drive.
    Ao Nang , the beachside area most people want to stay at in Krabi is not well sign posted and your GPS will come in handy there , though I only use maps and locals directions myself.
    Kaptain Rob statred a thread about them somewhere on here.
    I'd also recommend the 'Blue Ocean Cafe' on the cnr of Beach Rd in AN , as a lively 'sing a long' spot for a good night out.

    I've read about the Blue ocean Cafe, I'll pay that a visit for sure. I'm staying 3 weeks so plenty of time to do that, but not to many late nights because I want to go scuba diving a lot.

    @Distantpeak: Sorry to disappoint you but I'm male, but I'm a photographer and I did make that photo. Sadly uploading it took out most of the color.

    Wttb, Doc. Always good to see another old PI member on the board.
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    Welcome Doc. You may post a LINK to albums or a non-commercial website. Put a link in a Sig, if you want to, then it's always there. Nothing porno, artistic only please.

    Garmin GPS you can buy almost anywhere, even BigC. Many tablet PC's come with GPS and may be used in-car.
    I've got a 5" PDA-based iGo gps which is great and cost ~ 4.5k Bt, 2 years ago. The software developed a fault last month and I took it into Icon Plaza and had new software installed ... cost 200 Bt. 555

    Cheers, Rob.

    Good to see Another "old Face" here Doc. Welcome.

    I got turned around about three times trying to find Ao Nang. I finally stopped at 7/11 and got some time on my air card. Might be a good option if you have a Tablet that takes USB or a SIM. Good luck.
    Never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. M.T.

    Welcome Doc. Mate If you hire a car you can usually get a GPS in the deal. My GPSProvider Navman don't appear to have Thai maps available. But there are a few tech heads on here that can straighten that one out. I read the TRs (trip reports) where they have used local GPS with all the Thai maps loaded.

    Cheers Doc
