Back to Bangkok this month!

Jump to last reply

I finally made the purchase of our Bangkok tickets coming up in less than 2 weeks! Yikes!! I was waiting for certain things to be accomplished before I could actually make the buy. Everything fell into place this morning. Yippeeee!

DS's Thai girlfriend (Lat) has been here for the summer, and is returning on the 21st of August, thus DS and DH will also leave then, flying all together (until NRT when DS DH take ANA and Lat takes Thai. They will arrive at nearly the same time and will taxi into the city together in a van with all of their luggage.

I will follow on the 24th. By then they will be settled into a condo. I don't know if we will stay at Column again, but most probably that will be our final choice. We like the huge panorama suite, but I don't think we can book it for a full 3 weeks stay (too pricey). Their regular 2-bedroom apts are very nice, just not quite so large, and the balcony is MUCH SMALLER. The panorama has a terrace about the size of a basketball court. Hard to beat!

Anyway, so looking forward to our return. This trip puts me over my 1K requirements with United, so I'm happy about that. I still have paid flights coming up this year, which will put me more like 125k but I am having a hard time finding out of that gets me anything. It USED to get me a few more free upgrade certificates. I don't know if that rule is still in effect or not.

Very happy to be returning to Bangkok. I doubt there will be any side trips, but we shall see. I just might take LAT down to Samui or somewhere she has not yet been.
