A Few Hours in Bangkok

I spent a few hours in the Bangkok airport and thus accomplished one of the most important parts of traveling which is being able to tell someone you’ve been to a certain country. Yeah, I’ve been to Thailand. Cool place.

Quick thoughts:

  • As you taxi on the runway you see signs which say "Long Live the King". Tons of signs with that phrase and a picture of the general. I can only assume it’s the general who led the recent coup. What a lovely poster for visitors to see over and over.
  • Thai Airways gave a flower to each woman on the flight. Can somebody say s-e-x-i-s-m? :-)
  • Saw a sign for a "Muslim Prayer Room" in the airport. I knew I had arrived in SE Asia.
  • As we waited in line to board the flight to Mumbai, I found myself standing next to an American lady. After we both observed the chaos which substitutes for a queue, she remarked, "Do you think it’s asking too much for people to form a line?" I responded that in China, at least, queuing is far inferior to the mob approach.
  • Thailand definitely seems like the hot tourist destination for rich western tourists who want beaches and a little exotic spirit.

  1. Hey, you didn’t have to go to SE Asia to see a Muslim prayer room – all UK airports (and even some larger train stations) have them, too. Same in French airports.

    I am chinese most thai people tell me do not like western pigs because they are mostly HIV positives and they have brought their sickness to Asia. No wonder Thailand is getting closer to china, get the hell back to America or wherever these sick animals are from.
