    Free SIM card

    Might be relevant to the "SIM card " thread below, but I thought I'd post it in a new topic. YOu can get a free SIM card At the airport by downloading a QR code fro AIS 1-2 call, or on the Thai Tag app. https://www.ais-amazingthailandsim.com https://www.tagthai.com/content/p/get-a-free-tourist-sim-card-and-special-exchange-rate-with-tagthai-starter-pass Not sure if you can extend the validity, but it's good for 7 days with 8GB free to start. You can download the thai tag app before going to Thailand. Same with the registering for the AIS SIM card. A guy who used the Thai Tag benefits,a few which look interesting, blogged it here:- https://traveldave.co.uk/my-review-of-the-tagthai-bangkok-day-pass-thailand/

    Rembrandt Hotels and Suites on Sukhumvit soi 18

    My info. might be out of date as it was around 10 years ago I stayed there,but as there were no replies I thought it might help. I stayed there with my ex-girlfriend(Not LB!),at that time it was more expensive than the rates you were quoted.It was over 3,000 baht per night. The room was spacious, with a nice bed an furniture. At that time its Indian restaurant was one of the best in BKK.I Don't know about now.Short walk to the BTS. BUT.......The one thing you should check before booking is if it is joiner free/friendly.At that time it wasn't joiner friendly.My ex was ok because she checked in with me. For a definite answer, Send them an email and make sure you'll be ok taking LBs/GGs back......What's the point in staying there if you can't!!!!! As I said before , my info (hopefully) is out of date.Hope this helps

    Cheapish , but ok hotel between sois 7 and 11

    Get on Agoda ,input bangkok Sukhumvit into the search, then open the map and look for the hotels around Soi 7 to Soi 11 that have "Flash Deals". You 'll probably get a better room for your money that way.

    Immigration lines can be a real lottery. I think it depends on not the time of day you arrive,but on how many planes are arriving at that time.

    Esim lcard for Samsung S22 ultra

    I think AIS(1 2 call) only does esims for existing customers.But DTAC has them and you can order them online.Best to order just before (1 or 2 days before) you depart and they send you a QR code to download the Esim.I think this is the way to go from now on.No more messing about with SIM cards or hanging about the airport to get one. You can just go to settings and switch between which SIM you want to use at that time.This is the one I'm looking at at the moment:- https://esim2fly.com/product/dtac-tourist-esim-thailand-8day/#cr_qna But if you're going to go to Thailand regularly , the ones direct from DTAC are much better packages and you have the option of choosing your phone number:- https://www.dtac.co.th/en/new-number/esim
  10. Not a Biggie, and won't "break the bank" , but get your Grab/Bolt/All Thai Taxi apps installed anyway! https://tna.mcot.net/english-news-1093910
  11. I agree with Kendo.I always visit Suda at least once every trip.First went over 20 years ago. A few people say it isn't as good as it used to be ,but I still like it. Here's a few pics.

    Personally, I think it's best to book the fast track both ways.Always do. No dramas or stress on the way back.
