    Are female incontinence supplies (pads, etc) readily found in Thailand beyond Bangkok? Where to look?

    I've checked and the Tops supermarket carries them. About 400 Baht for 24-28 of a brand called Ancare (I can't tell on the package if the 24 or 28 is the size or the count). almost 6 years ago

    seasickness remedies please!

    Ask your doctor. I've seen people wear patches that they swear by. The wrist bands are good. And there are a variety of pills you can take too. You have several options. And start on a big ship - they're very stable - and in calm waters like the Caribbean. almost 6 years ago

    Are female incontinence supplies (pads, etc) readily found in Thailand beyond Bangkok? Where to look?

    Everything is just out on the shelf here, so you can see what there is and just choose. There seems to be many brands and types of menstrual pads (only a little in the tampon department, btw). I will look re incontinence products (I'm in Chiang Mai now). Your best bet is a supermarket (7-11s have only a limited supply). But there are also pharmacies where you can ask for harder to find things and the pharmacists speak English. You could also print out a Thai translation of what you want and carry it with you. almost 6 years ago

    WHat are the ferry services like between Lankawai and Penang? Do they operate in May? How many operators are there? thanks.

    The ferries go often, several times a day. The trip takes about 4 hours, but longer if there is weather. Many people report the trip as chilly (air conditioning). With Air Asia now doing the flight at super cheap prices, many people are skipping the ferry and just flying. almost 6 years ago

    where is thebest accomedation in penang? not international hotel, some distinctive inn.

    I have two boutique recommendations for you in George Town (which is the best place to stay to explore): - 23LoveLane - Hotel Penaga 23Lovelane has just 10 rooms (plus a couple suites nearby), all in antique buildings that have been conserved and restored to the highest standard, plus modern amenities like AC and bathrooms added. They serve a lovely afternoon tea too, included in the rates. You're in the heart of the UNESCO zone here. - Hotel Penaga has 45 rooms and is a touch more modern (but still restored old Chinese shop houses). Just outside the UNESCO zone (a couple minutes walk), this hotel also has a lap pool and conveniences like room service. The owners have put a lot of care into ensuring this is a true environmental hotel, plus have really cool art throughout (and a artist in residence program). I'm happy to answer any other questions for you! :-) almost 6 years ago

    I am going to Malaysia for a week, what places/sights should I go to? Thank you

    Malaysia is a big place. Where is your flight going to? KL? What kind of things do you like to do? I plan to go to Borneo in the new year. Right now I'm in the NW of the country. I spent some time in the beachy island of Langkawi and am now in the UNESCO World Heritage city of George Town. I've just published some Langkawi tips here: http://www.luxuryandboutiquehotels.com/langkawi-malaysia-explored/ Happy to answer any questions you may have! Johanna almost 6 years ago
