SIN-HAN (3h 20m)

ETA: 3.25pm (GMT + 7)

As I'm still trying to sort out the pictures I've taken during the recent mid-year trip, I'm going to write about my brief holiday to Hanoi, Vietnam for the time being. The trip was done before the birth of this blog, in November 2014 to be exact. It started with a flight with the country's blue bird, Vietnam Airlines.

Pardon for the hiatus as I've just recently come back from my holiday trip. Let's continue from where we left off with regard to my December 2016 trip. I had the chance to try not only the old Business Class cabin on the inbound flight to Bangkok, Thailand (HX773), but also the new one on the outbound flight to Hong Kong as you're about to see in this post.

There are six Louis' Tavern CIP Lounges at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport. As our plane was parked at Gate G2, we were directed by the staff at the check-in counter to go to the one just opposite the said gate.

THA: Suvarnabhumi Airport

Suvarnabhumi 5 Road, Bangkok, Thailand

Covering an area of 3,240 hectares, Suvarnabhumi (lit. Realm of Gold) is one of the biggest airports in Southeast Asia. It's sitting on what had been formerly known as Nong Nguhao (lit. Cobra Swamp), which was subsequently drained. In addition, it has got the world's tallest free-standing control tower at 132.2 m.

THA: Airy Suvarnabhumi Hotel

432 Latkrabang Soi 3, Bangkok, Thailand

My BFF and I were supposed to spend a night at QG Resort before leaving for Hong Kong the next morning. However, the owner sent an e-mail message to me three days prior to my arrival at Bangkok, Thailand, saying that there was a problem with the pipes in the room. As such, he had to cancel my reservation as there were no other rooms available. How then?

Did you know that the national flag carrier of Cambodia, which commenced operations on 28 July 2009, was established as a joint venture by the Cambodian government and Vietnam Airlines? Cambodia Angkor Air replaced the former national airline called Royal Air Cambodge, which ceased operations back in 2001.
