Just wondering, is it 'weird' to book one-way air tics from two different budget airlines? Eg. for the going trip, book Airasia, and the return trip, book jetstar??? I am looking at their flight timings and this thought came to my mind. Anyone tried that?? Or should we book from 1 airline only??
So you are flying there this sat, me and my gf too just the 2 ladies. Flying in the morning by which airline? ours SQ 845am staying at Baiyoke Sky. What about you? How many days will you be there? Ours coming back on Monday night.
You flying to BBK when? I also heard about the news on BBK but we have already book liao than how ours is only 3day 2night. Let's all pray for safety ya don't think about the bad things than it will be an enjoyable and fruitful trip. I always believe in fate whatever will happen will happen whatever will not, than will not happen. Always think of the bright side, cross our finger and pray for the good! Now BBK berry happening cos of the New Year, be prepared to be splash water by the locals... cannot get angry leh cos its part of the celebration.
Well let's think about buying, eating bargaining look see look see siok man.... now berry looking forward.........
check out time is 12 noon, we asked for late check out to 2 pm (flight was 4 pm+), but only get until 1 pm. but it's ok coz we can put the luggage in their luggage room then go out for more eating n quick shopping nearby
btw, we were approached by some men claiming that MBK or Grand Palace is closed because of Thai King's birthday, which we have read in other forum before that this is a part of a bigger gem scam. so we ignored them and truly we found that MBK and Grand palace was wide open with so many tourists inside.. I don't mean anything, just sharing here.. and it does pays to be careful in foreign country ya? N just now I found from Google that King's b'day is 4 December
no problem at all! i gained so much info here so thought of sharing back ..
we fly by air asia n stay in first house hotel. air asia is not bad, though got delayed several hours when departing from sgp. the flight back was on time, luckily. if u book air asia, make sure u provide hp number, coz when the flight schedule change, they will send sms to notify you. first house hotel, hmm.. not recommended even though the buffet breakfast is ok considering the kind of money we pay.
I am flying by Air Asia this Sat.
Our flight is schedule to fly at 10.55am and we will be back on Tue night.
I will be staying at Eastin Hotel.
Oh... I thought the festival only starts on 13 April? U mean, they will start splashing water before this date ar? Scary... dun want to walk around wet wet...
AirAsia - return timing is not bad, reached SIN at 8pm+. I am also considering Jetstar. The returning flight will touch down at Sin 11.20pm. Kind of late, right? Afraid that my little children will be tired and cranky (after we have checked out of hotel, the hours before we board the plane). But hb suggested putting luggage with hotel and then we can go for "more eating n quick shopping nearby". If they are tired, can always find a cafe etc to sit down and let them rest. We need to be at the airport at least 2 h before the flight departs right? So means that we need to reach airport at 5pm+ (BKK time).
u going from 7th-11th may? Heehee .. me too leh! But I only going for 3 nights. Me also staying at Novotel and its my first trip to BKK. Maybe we will bump into each other Which airline u traveling by?
I know there's this worrying period now that everyone is concern off, becoz of the terrorist attack which might spill over to bkk....
well, i live by this motto - If you're destine and your time's up, it doesn't matter where you are or what you're doing... If u have to go, you have to go.
So i say~~~~ HECK THE TERRORISTS and enjoy all your stay at BKK every single bit. No point worrying!! as someone mentioned earlier, the least we all could do is to register our names with the mha website and hope that all's okie. =)
Is anyone planning to travel to Bangkok before 31 May 2005? I've one SIN-BKK-SIN ticket via. Valuair which I've put up on sale at S$100. If you're keen, pls look for thread under Honeymoon and Travel in the discussion forum: S$100 Valuair Air-ticket to Bangkok for Urgent Sale.
OMG!! We are going to on the same flight girl!! Yes, travelling on Jet*Asia dept Sin 0920hrs. Just curious, how much did you pay for your trip? I booked mine with Chan Bros during Nata travel. Comes with 3 nights hotel (w breakfast), airport transfer (2 way) and half day city tour. I paid $360 (including airport taxes) per pax.
Has anyone tried buying bulky stuff from Chatuchak and shipping back? E.g. furniture. Was wondering how much it costs to ship back and how long it takes to reach Singapore. Do they deliver to your doorstep? Anyone can advise?
i took the late morning flight.. i tink it's 12pm... reach SG at 2.55pm.. coz the nite flight is pretty late.. will touch down at SG at ard 1145pm.. still need to work the nxt day..
i guess u took the night flight?
hmmm nope! haven't planned anyting yet!
geee! hw abt u?? hmmm so far only plan to go there and get my household and decor stuff..
and maybe look at wedding favours and cards..
I will be taking the night flight since I plan to take the next day off anyway. Usually when I travel, I will take the next day off to unpack my luggage and rest a bit before going back to work
I have a rough itinerary plannned out, thanks to all the advice and info I got from this forum. Decided to go to BKK since me and hubby like Thai food and since we havent been there, we thought we just see how. As for the shopping, I dont think I will shop much as my impression of BKK is more for ppl getting married soon or for those who are getting their house soon. As for myself, I got married and got my place about 4 years ago so I don't think I will be buying much household stuffs.

Anyone of you saw this ad by Thai Embassy abt 2 wks ago? The one where we can mail/fax over a small part to indicate which part of thailand we are gg and the embassy can send over some info?
I faxed over that next day. Guess what? Not only the embassy sent over 2 Bkk brochures (1/2 cm thick each), a brochure on "Say No" to strangers offering % at any shops, it also comes with and 10b % coupon for a 1 day BTS pass (i know it sounds kinda 'odd') and a 5-30% discount card!! Cool!! It can be used @ most of the shopping ctrs mentioned in this tread! Its a promo with Visa, and is valid till Mar 06!
