Connection time at Don Mueang Airport

Posted by mmoody on 15/1/2014 at 11:38

We are flying from Siem Reap to Bangkok, arriving at 1:10pm on AirAsia. Ideally we would like to connect to another flight heading down towards koh Samui that same day. There is a flight leaving Don Mueang at 2:30pm. Initially I thought this would be tight, but doable, now I am wondering about clearing customs and still having enough time to catch that flight? Would it help that they are both Air Asia flights? Although not booked together, could my baggage be checked through? Anyone have an ...

260v plugs in Thailand?

Posted by cbg0927 on 7/1/2014 at 08:06

I've only seen 220-240v here in Thailand so far. The past two places I've been (khao sok and koh tao) show 250v and 260v faceplates on the outlets though. Can anyone shed some light onto this? I was under the assumption that the outlets can only output as much power as the generator provides them, and something tells me all of koh tao isn't running on 260v. ...

We are due to fly into Bangkok airport at 6.00 hours in transit and depart at 10.00 for Laos - on February 2, which I think is the date for the elections which the Yellow Shirts have said they'll try to disrupt. Via airport workers' trade unions, might the Yellow Shirts close down Bangkok airport as part of their disruption or does this seem out of the question? ...
