Accomodation & Venue
Stay at Rawi Warin Resort!
March 1st is the high season in Thailand. All hotels are usually fully booked at this time of the year. We recommend that you stay at Rawi Warin Resort, which is on the same Klong Nin Beach as Lynn, Michael, and Cherie’s home. Notably, our 50th-anniversary celebration will also be hosted at this resort. This way it not only provides convenient access to our celebration but also ensures easy transportation to all other events scheduled in the following days.
It is set on a beautiful stretch of Klong Toab Beach and a hillside covered in lush tropical rainforest.
The doors will open at 6:00 PM ICT for badges, beverages, and a buffet.
The program will commence at dusk: 7:00 PM with all in their seats. From 7:00 – 9:00 PM, we will have a program that will be festive, fabulous, and fun. At 9:00 PM more networking, planning the next two days, and dancing….. if you choose!

Flights to Krabi
Booking flights is another action that should be taken seriously as far in advance as you are comfortable. For many people coming from abroad, the arrival airport is in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi (the final “I” is silent). There are some countries that may fly direct to Krabi, Thailand, which is ideal. If you fly to Bangkok you will need to take an additional flight to Krabi Airport (in the South).
As soon as you have booked your flights, please send an email to:
email@example.com to arrange for airport pick up in a van that will bring 10-12 conference attendees to Koh Lanta.
In Thai language, Koh means “Island” and there are two: Lanta Noi (Little Lanta) and Lanta Yai (Big Lanta). You will be coming to Lanta Yai, which is a 90-minute ride from Krabi Airport. If you prefer to have your own car, you can rent one at Krabi airport.
Here are examples of different itineraries coming:
Other Useful Information

The currency in Thailand is the Thai Baht or ฿ and the currency exchange changes daily, so check before you leave home. There are ATMs in the airport and at many locations so you can easily obtain cash so you don’t need to carry large sums of money with you.
Since we live on an island, you have options: take the shared van 90 minutes to your hotel or take a speedboat to your hotel.
If you take the van there is a car ferry that you will take to cross over the waterway. The ferry usually stops at 10:00 PM, so make sure you plan appropriately so you won’t miss the boat!
On the island, motorbikes can be rented for generally $5.00 per day, and a Tuk-Tuk (motorcycles with places for passengers are also available for short trips (negotiate before getting onboard).
Please make sure you bring mosquito repellent and sunblock 50 so you will not get bitten or burned. The sun in the South of Thailand is hot and we want you to be safe and protected.
