Touch Down on the "Golden Land"
I touched down at the Suvarnabhumi Airport at roughly 1 a.m. on Thursday midnight, or shall I say Friday.
The airport has to be one of the biggest airport ever in the world!
Even though it's 1am, the airport was still very busy. So many people walking past in every direction.
Some people are so in a rush that they even have to walk so quickly through the moving walkways. I got pushed somewhere on the moving walkway. Is it necessary?
And when I was about to have my passport "chopped", I faced a long queue.
I'm so lucky to go Thailand this year. The Loy Krathong festival is just in a few days after my arrival.
As I was about to walk out of the airport, I saw a group of people, each holding a piece of paper or cards, with texts on it. At my first glance, I thought they were a bunch of protesters! Gave me a little fright here. Almost wanna run away from getting mobbed.
Despite so many taxis were waiting for customers outside the airport, we opted to use a van to go to our hotel.
I love this hotel, dubbed as the tallest tower in the whole of Thailand.
The lobby itself is on the 18th floor. There are so many lifts in this hotel.
Some lifts only transport people to limited number of floors. And the lift moves VERY
Me and my family lived on the 51st floor. The view from here is simply..
