Trip Report Yet another holiday trip to Bangkok!

Jump to last reply

My workday is almost done. Then I can head home and finish my packing!!

This will be trip #26 to Bangkok for me. I'm leaving tomorrow, first class, ORD-HKG on UA, and then HKG-BKK on Thai. This is a frequent flier ticket (my second one this year in first class) that cost me 140,000 miles and $2.50. Not bad! DH will be following me, but on a different day, on his own FF first class ticket. DS Brad (bradinbangkok) is already in Thailand on his own first class FF ticket, and has been reporting that the weather is great.

Not looking forward to the long flight(s), although I should be able to get plenty of sleep and eats in first class; but definitely looking forward to getting back to soi 8 Sukhumvit, Adelphi Suites! Not fancy, not 5*, nowhere near the river, but comfortable, and the staff all know us. And it is well-located for visiting friends in the area.

Since this is the 4th year in a row that we've gone to Thailand for the holidays, we have established a few traditions. There are some minor changes this year, but we are basically doing the same sorts of things for Christmas Eve/Christmas Day and the new year beach location.

I wish everyone a happy healthy holiday season, where ever you are spending it. May it be filled with everything you want it to be!
