    Airline prices

    Sorry to hear about,and disappointed to hear about the bad experience with Etihad. I looking at flights going the opposite way,from Asia to the UK,and back via BKK.And I'm not exactly spoilt for choice(and ridiculous prices) due to the Ukraine and airspace situation. Chances are you've already researched it: One thing that I've found helpful on SkyScanner is checking prices for one way tickets with different carriers.Used to be that a one way ticket was the same price as a roundtrip ticket.But not any more. Makes for a really flexible schedule, depending on the carrier(s). I hear what you say about arrival times. Arriving back in the Uk in the evening and having to get home at that time is not only tiring/tiresome but also depressing as hell! Arriving in BKK early afternoon or anytime in the morning is best for me. I like arriving in the morning because chances are I'm going north to Chiang Rai/Chiang Mai or south to Hua Hin.And can still arrive at my final destination with some of the day remaining.

    New UK Airline coming soon

    I'm well interested in this.Especially if they fly Manchester to BKK(Or anywhere in Thailand) I think it will take time to get going. I sent them an email about routes and I'm waiting for a reply.

    Airline prices

    Just looking at Skyscanner for prices in November,EVA seems to have the cheapest direct flight to BKK at 575GBP.From that it goes up to 697GBP for Thai Airways flights. Finnair has some good deals for a one stop flight at 450GBP.But a transfer and more time on the plane.Might be an idea to click on the "Get Price Alerts" button,if you haven't already done so. Obviously prices will vary depending on the dates you can fly,and Friday Saturday and Sunday will be more expensive.Wednesday and Thursday always seem to be the cheaper days to fly. Disappointed to hear that Etihad wasn't a good experience.I was thinking of using them for my next flight.What went wrong with the Etihad flights?

    Hotel location

    Soi 11 is a great location to stay.Right between Soi 7 and Soi 4,and near to the BTS station. Also, if you want a shortcut to Soi 13 you just go through the carpark at the Ambassador Hotel and it takes you to Soi 13. (Some excellent Indian Restaurants on Soi13,and cheap laundry services!)

    Hotel location

    Fair question,and gets asked a lot. How far will I have to walk back at the end of the night? I always recommend to watch this Youtuber's vids. on the Sukhumvit sois . You can see the real distance you'll have to walk from Sukhumvit to your hotel in real life. Soi 29 on this vid: Soi 11:

    So far,so good,so what?

    Yeah, I have to agree.Most of the guys I know have gone with AXA as it gets them through the Thai Pass/immigration/checks process quickly with no problems. https://www.axa.co.th/axa-sawasdee-thailand-travel-insurance?utm_source=Agent_Partner&utm_medium=Direct_Thaiest&utm_campaign=Sawasdee_Thaiest The link is from the ThaiEst website that also does the 1st day and fifth day test and go hotel packages. https://thaiest.com/blog/aq-hotel-1-night-packages But cometh April......It might have all changed again!

  12. For those who want to get there quick.....Just in-time for the end of Covid! Probably supersonic prices too. https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-57361193

    Flight Credit. Anybody got a refund?

    Time to call your credit card company and state that the flight is the same as "Goods not received". Airline companies will have you going around in circles before you get a straight answer.
  14. Also luv green curry with fishballs
