comment Backpacking to East Malaysia, where to start? where to end?
yes, it is in the park. It's about 2 hours away from KK so you could make it a day trip but you won't be able to climb the mountain. It's much better to make it a 2-3 days trip and enjoy yourself. My first time, I went up, came down the next day after watching the sunrise, then went to the poring hotspring to relax and recover a bit. For a day trip, Poring hot springs might be a better choice.

comment Is there a website that measures the level of xenophobia in countries/cities?
@MarcelC. I don't think racism is the right word. These people are afraid of foreigners taking their jobs. They are afraid about people who have nothing to lose and don't care about the laws of the country. Neither of these factors apply to tourists and so you get the paradox of people who are both xenophobic and yet genuinely welcoming to foreign tourists.

comment How best to prevent data loss while travelling?
I agree. Connection speed is the elephant in that room. All online back up solutions are totally unworkable is the connectivity sucks... and it certainly does in many parts of the world.

comment Snorkeling and beach location for Southern Thailand (Phuket/Krabi) in July?
I am not sure, but I think so. The only places I am sure of are: Phi Phi, Ralay (Krabi) and the islands between kao yai and Krabi (James bond island, etc.)

@WW. Sorry, I assumed you had your own equipment for snorkeling. I don't know whether or not they have equipment to rent. They might have but Kao Yai/Noi are somewhat out of the beaten path. Still, it might be worth it for you to buy equipment in Phuket before you go to Kao Yai. Depending on how many days you use it, it will be cheaper than renting anyway. And you get to pick things that fit properly.

comment Where to go in Thailand in September?
Koh Samet was no less beautiful. Now it's starting to look like a dump because of all the garbage thrown all over the place. A real shame.

comment How to stay in Thailand for more than 30 days?
One note on Air Asia, their service & attitude sucks, they will slap you on with many hidden charges so don't rely on advertised prices (for instance, the "extra" checked baggage starts from 1 baggage since there is no baggage allowance). If you have a choice, skip them.
