I blog…..(Bangkok airport edition)

with 4 comments

Watching the majestic flying machines take-off/land [1], or simply taxi along, while the sun sets in the background……all the while sipping on a Sapphire-and-tonic (no Vermouth available, hence the second choice) – and playing with a new toy and blogging (courtesy free wifi at the Royal Silk Lounge)……..goes a long way towards taking the pain off a 16-hour layoff at a not too passenger friendly airport (I have been spoiled by Singapore’s Changi)


1: Of all commercial airplanes, and that includes the Concorde and the recent A-380s, dont you agreeĀ  that the Boeing 747 ‘Jumbo’ jets are the most majestic.

  1. SIXTEEN hours? You should have gone into town. Tried out some street food. Some of their glorious fruit. Ridden a water-taxi. Got a neck rub.

    Or did you?

  2. @JAP: exploring the city, especially the culinary delights, was the original plan. Unfortunately, we realised (a) visa on arrival was not as simple as a quick transit visa like they do in Malaysia and (b) there had been riots on the streets the day before.

    Did get the neck rub for gratis courtesy Thai. And the lounge was also serving Laphroaig 10yrs !
    (Thai service on-board left a lot to be desired though)

  4. Great post! Found another site which I must admit has come in handy while working remote: TravelMonks

    They have a pretty good dynamic map of a lot of places and things, like this one on nightlife or this one on wireless internet places.
