Start the day with an awesome breakfast at Hilton Millennium, riverside.

even it’s hot we enjoyed the view

and it’s very hard to make a decision what to have for breakfast…

Taxi picks us up at 1pm. Flight is scheduled 4:40 pm, plenty of time. ETA at Singapore Changi is 8:40 pm. Stay at Hilton Garden Inn Seragoon which is in Little India. Looking forward to Singapore. Again without a flu … 🤒

We did not do anything yesterday, some poolside business and a massage. Plus a short walk through Icon Siam one of the iconic malls in Bangkok. Check this out…

2 pm is tea and coffee time at the Executive Lounge. O M G… We have been told that we have to have the food inside and look what they brought…

just for the two of us….

Furthermore we couldn’t escape the pitfall of Thai friendless and service. Discussing with a front desk manager what is the best option to reach Don Muang Airport tomorrow she suggested to order a taxi . We both (she and myself) that I will decide and come back later. 15 minutes later she showed up and announced with a big smile that she ordered a taxi already for us, 1 pm and it’s 700 THB. I mean I’d have paid it anyway but.. what shall I say to her? This is an uncomfortable pitfall.. just out of service and friendliness.

Breakfast at the Hilton Millennium is outstanding. Haven’t seen such a big variety not often. May be I can do a video to share .

What a nice day….

Stockholm to Bangkok

Filed under: travel — Tags: , , — mat @ 3:15 am

Going to the airport in time we checked in for Royal Jordanian Airlines. easy as always. First part from ARN to AMM operated by an A 320 with a little old school business class. Crew was friendly and warmhearted. In Amman we took the chance to do lounge hopping. First Petra lounge which was very cozy and looks even opulent. And it was quiet, less visitors. Second was Merhaba lounge , best choice at AMM airport. And finally the Crown lounge by Royal Jordanian. Known since last year, less traffic then last year may be coz of the overall middle east situation. So time flies and we were boarded to BKK.

The crew was a little restrained. Warmhearted and hospitality looks a little different. Anyway we were able to get some sleep and landed in BKK on time. The business class boarding pass gave us access to fast track immigration and at the end it took us 25 minutes from touching ground till the exit with luggage. Not bad. After a hustle with a taxi driver we jumped on air link train to Paya Thai and proceeded with BTS to Saphan Thaksin. Ferry boat to the other site of the river showed up quickly and finally we checked in at the 31st floor at Hilton Millennium Bangkok.

Found some noodle soup and Chang beer for dinner always a good choice. Went to bed early and let’s see what tomorrow will bring….
