Trip Report Holidays in Thailand 2016

Jump to last reply

We leave in a matter of hours, trip #38 to Thailand for me. This is our 8th year in a row (10 trips in all) to spend Christmas in Bangkok, 3rd time in a row to Marriott Phuket Beach Club (a huge favorite) for New Years Eve. We seem to have become accustomed to new traditions, sharing Christmas Eve with a lovely family (Thai wife, Danish husband, their 7 year old daughter) we have known for many years, having been a part of their wedding some 10+ years ago. The Danish husband will prepare a sumptuous meal, there will be lights on the Christmas tree, and presents to share, in their beautiful new Bangkok condo. After decades of Christmases with parents and siblings (now all have passed away) it is heartwarming to have new traditions to share. I truly look forward to this vacation! I have had health issues for the last year, including a brand new pace maker... so being able to travel 24+ hours and arrive in my favorite city once again is a blessing.

We were just in Europe for 3 weeks, but it was business and a very hectic pace! I literally had 5 days to unpack, do laundry, repack, tend to my duties as a business owner, host an annual Christmas dinner for our staff, and finally breathe a sigh of relief as we toss the suitcases in the car and head to Ohare for our flight to London on United, and then on to Bangkok on Thai, A380. We are booked into 1st class once again, having snagged frequent flier "saver" tickets way back in February.

I will be posting regularly if you care to follow along. There may be new restaurants to report, and perhaps new shopping places. No new hotels, however, as we will stay in the huge "panorama suite" (2 bedroom apartment) once again at Column Tower on Sukhumvit Soi 16. I love this apartment. We have a great terrace, about the size of half a basketball court, plus very large livingroom/diningroom, nice kitchen, laundry room, 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, and awesome city views! Who could ask for more! For my FB friends, watch for photos!
