    Immigration queues BKK?

    Don't cut it too fine on the way out https://thainews.prd.go.th/en/news/detail/TCATG230305163350439

    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
  6. 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
  7. 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.

    Cathay Pacific

    I hope this doesn't coincide with your travel dates: https://www.bbc.com/news/business-63510375

    Cathay Pacific

    You should be transfer protected by Cathay. But having said that....Get it from the horses mouth. Call them and get confirmation for peace of mind.

    Carry on Only Tips

    Exactly. But as I mentioned in an earlier post, if I take a checked in bag I still use the vest.That way I don't need a carry on.Everything I would usually put in a carry on fits in the vest.A breeze going through security too....No messing around emptying your pockets, etc. Another thing I bought from Scottevest was a windbreaker. I ride a motorcycle everyday , and because I can get everything I need into it,I don't need to hump around a rucksack or daysack/backpack. Just another option to think about.

    Carry on Only Tips

    They're handy even if you take a checked-in bag.....no need for a carry-on.Everything you'd usually put in a carry-on will fit in the vest. And convenient going through security.

    Sukhumvit to Hua Hin

    Bolt or Grab, or all thai taxi will give you a cheaper fare than a normal taxi. You can get an estimate fare on their website/app.
