The beach in Thailand?

Hi

I'm about to write my master thesis - and what better place to write it than on a beach in thailand?

I'll write it from February to May 2012.

I'm on a strict budget.

I need an internet connection ones a day that support skype.

So let me ask you: Where is the best beach in Thailand?

    I think you seen to many movies or listen to friends who been here over 10 years ago and think things haven't changed.

    Basis on what you wrote I would recommend Khao Lak, between Ranong and Phuket. It has a nice beach, no not the best, it's not as expensive as Phuket and not as many tourist. You should be able to get the internet you are looking for also.

    But you have other issues to deal with, is your strict budget $10 a day or $200 a day.

    Do you understand the immigrations requirements to stay here that long. You just can't hop off the plane and stay here as long as you like. You are going to have to leave Thailand at least once maybe more than that to stay here that long. With Khao Lak you can make a visa run to Ranong and they have boats to take you to Burma and back again to update your visa. Also Khao Lak doesn't have your Burger King or McDonald's so I hope you have no issues eating Thai food which is cheap and keep you on the strict budget. Yes you can get Western food at some of the restaurants but it's made in the Thai style of western food.

    that's no longer secure. till you'll come across a camp floor with safe practices guards. The Thai each body is amazingly pleasant and effective frequently. the similar old income for unskilled exertions is about 3 thousand baht a month. that's round 60 US a month. an complete backpack should be worth Six months of their income. this can tempt people. The Thais ought to imagine you've been unusual for dozing on the coastline. Plus in the daylight hours you should might want to carry all of your issues round with you. The police in Thailand supplement there salaries by fining vacationers. like the parking rip-off in Puket in case your vehicle is parked on the area of the line you would possibly want to bypass it to the different area of the line at 6:00 AM each morning? good success.

    Rai Leh Beach in Krabi is one of the best beaches in Thailand, but not really budget. Koh Phangan also has some nice beaches on the Northern and Eastrern coast. There you will find budget places and you'll have internet.

    I will let the other people recommend. I checked your profile and could not get any information about you, so I will explain for the United States and quite a few other countries, but not all.

    I too am going for an extended time. I applied for a 90 day visa at the Thai Embassy in Washington, DC. It was approved at the cost of $40.00 US. I will arrive and will be given 60 days. At the end of that I will apply for a 30 day extension (1,900 baht) and it will be approved again. That is how I get the 90 days. For another extension of 7 days I can apply again for 1,900 baht but after that I will have to leave. If I should leave the country and return, I can get 30 days by flying, 90 days again by application and paying, or 14 days by coming in by land or sea.

    In reality, in the past, I have paid $80.00 and got a 2 entry visa.

    You will also need onward or return transportation when you arrive.

    Best and cheap?? Cheap is Pattaya but the beach is not the "best!" Easy to get to from Bangkok. Access to malls, street vendors, cheap hotels, movie theaters, supermarkets, nightlife, good restaurants, beach good for sunbathing and jogging, hospitals and dentists available. And cheap 10 baht transportation. Beach sucks for actual swimming!! Pools available. Swim nearby at Koh Larn, Jomtien and Naklua. Only costs 113 baht for the 2 hour bus ride from Bangkok. Stay on Koh Larn island but have cheap access to Pattaya for only 30 baht on the ferry.

    Or go to Koh Phangan, mingle and drink and do drugs with (mostly) teenage boys while looking at the moon, etc.

    Hua Hin. You can reach there by train, bus or taxi. Not as cheap as Pattaya but the beach is nicer.

    Want to be more remote. Koh Sukorn.

    You will have to do some work on your visas. You can't stay in Thailand as long as YOU want. There are regulations. Even if you can get 30 days free entry or not depends on the passport you travel under. (Visa charges in the near future may be waived to entice more tourists. So keep up with this change. Depending on your passport, you can stay longer for free.)

    You must establish some sort of budget to get a daily cost for hotel or whatever. You can not just sleep on the beach like a common vagrant. When you ask for hotel suggestions mention how much per night you want to spend on a room.

    Some hotels have free wifi - some do not! But there are many internet shops available at low prices.

    Good luck.

    If you want a nice quiet beach that is not too remote, try Koh Samui or Phuket (Kata and Kata Noi Beaches). Forget Pattaya. Koh Chiang is quiet and nice too. Hua Hin has a great atmosphere, but the beaches aren't very exciting.
