Trip Report BKK flooding isn't going to stop me!

Jump to last reply

I'm already on the road towards BKK, trip #25 to the Venice of the Far East. Sounds like I just may experience some unexpected canals on this trip (flooding)! I'll be staying on Sukhumvit soi 8 once again, at Adelphi Suites. The staff is very welcoming. The location is perfect for me. And I love using the washing machine in the kitchen of my executive one bedroom apartment.

Tonight (Sunday) I'm staying at a hotel near to my departure airport (PIA) and my flight is to ORD at 5:45am (ugh). I'd rather sleep near to the airport than drive over in the weeeee hours of the morning, with the deer darting across the road in front of me. I've never hit one (knock on wood) and don't want to start NOW.

Anyway, my routing takes me from PIA to ORD, and then ORD-LAX (in economy right now, but hoping for upgrade); from LAX to NRT (biz class, new 777) and then upper deck 747 biz seat from NRT to BKK, arriving in the city at 11pm Tuesday night. Hope all goes smoothly and my two check bags make it. They are full of goodies for my friends, plus my own 'stuff' of course.

I'm sure I am going to appreciate that nice shower and amenities kit at Narita Red Carper, once again. Or is it now just called the United Club....

Come on along with me, if you'd like to, on yet another adventure to the Land of Smiles. At this time, I am scheduled to spend 13 nights at Adelphi, but I am going to investigate a 2- or 3-night trip to Georgetown Penang Malaysia once I get to BKK. IF that trip pans out, it will be solo, and will be from about the 26-29 October. I'm heading back home Oct 31. There are several 'events' scheduled on this trip, and I shall report on them as I go along. This is a special trip in more ways than one. Curious? Then follow along! Now,time for some shuteye! I'll catch up with everyone during stop-overs on the flight(s) over.
