We found China Eastern Air to be a decent airline to fly. The planes were older (I remember flying to Hawaii on this type of plane in the 80s), but this meant that the seats were a bit more spacious with, what I felt was, adequate legroom. The food was pretty good as well. Unfortunately, there was no in-seat entertainment, but, luckily, we had our computers and some books to entertain us along with some napping.
We finally arrived in Bangkok around 2 am on January 3 and got to bed around 3 am. It was so warm in Bangkok - 24 degrees! Our hotel room was great at the Convenient Resort. For $20, we had a huge private room with bathroom and air conditioning. The bed was a bit hard, but this will be the case for all beds over the next 3 months.
When we wake up in the morning, we will be heading into the city of Bangkok to spend the night and then head north the next morning.
