Overnight in BKK Airport

Posted by lsanders490 on 20/12/2015 at 10:43

Is there a place to hang out overnight in the BKK airport? I'm on a very low budget this trip to Asia and want to avoid paying for a hotel, if possible. My flight arrives in BKK at 11:30 PM, and it will be after midnight before I collect my luggage and clear customs. I have arranged a place to stay in BKK, but do not want to arrive at my host's house in the middle of the night. I'd rather wait till the following day. So, is it feasible to hang out in the airport overnight and then take the trai ...

Beaches between Phuket & Ko Phayam

Hey all, I've visited a Thailand handful of times - spend two or three weeks a time there for holidays, but this time, it's slightly different as I'll be pregnant, so instead of seeing loads, we are going to keep it by the beach and slow things down a little (not entirely, but a little). We plan to spend some time at Ko Phayam, but will intially fly into Phuket or Krabi as the connections into Ranong don't work well with our flight to Bangkok. I'd love to stop off somewhere on the way f ...

Looking at various reviews it seems the area we are in comprises of large resorts. Are there any smaller mor ...
