Idag tillbringade vi förmiddagen vid poolen innan vi skulle checka ut. Vi gick en sväng på stan och Bettan lyckades handla lite onödiga grejer igen. Vi han också med en lunch innan vi skulle åka. Sen tog vi taxi till flygplatsen och som ett under kom vi igenom med våra väskor. Bettans väska vägde nästan 30kg. Framme i Bangkok var det dags för buss …
Idag var sista
dagen i Hanoi. Jag bad receptionisten om hjälp att ringa hotellet
som vi stannat i i Da Nang, eftersom jag sett på internetbanken att
dom debiterat vår rumshyra två ggr. Efter flera samtal lyckades han
få hotellet att bekräfta detta. De skulle sen sätta in pengarna på
hans konto och jag fick kontanter av …
Thought I better drop a line and say I arrived in Thailand OK with only a day's delay (more on that later...) My second trip to Thailand and am having some deja vu experiences and some new ones. The former being the floral smell in the humid air and latter is the excellent airport train, cutting down the time to travel to the city from over an hour …
... in a wonderfully chaotic series of emails to plan at least some of my adventures. I then looked into Visa's (my arch nemesis as anyone who read my Vietnam stories would know) to find mixed messages. Yes you can get one on arrival but its better to get one prior.

... a successful day, I spent the rest of the evening putting antivirus software on our new baby.

As we were planning on coming back to BKK in 2 weeks it seemed like the best time to get a pair. After going into two shops my opinion of Thai people grew massively as both shop owners were so helpful and friendly, Alice decided on basically the ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Everything was great - from the graciousness of accepting I would need to cancel the first night as delayed by a winter storm in Regina, hence missing my flights to Bangkok, to the relief that they were at the airport waiting for me after I cleared Customs, to holding my luggage the next day past their pick up time. I was so disappointed I could only stay one night due to my missed connections as they were full the second night I could have stayed so I moved to the Phoenix Hotel across the lane. The Lilac is a beautifully furnished hotel in lilac and white decor, offered excellent breakfast with a choice of breads for toast, eggs and the most delicious coffee along with relaxing music in the dining room. Cannot wait to stay there again!
