Thailand, “The land of smiles” has something to offer for everybody.  There are activities for everybody from shopping, nightlife, spa and foods. Gone are they days when we thought of only street foods and some insects snacks on the street. Bangkok is very much a modern city and you will never get bored visiting this amazing city.

Malindo flight land at Don Mueng International Airport. This old airport reopens after congestion at Suvarnabhumi Airport. Immigration is slow and we manage to come out from the gate after 1 hours. Don Mueng International Airport is nearer to the city and the best way to reach the city is by Taxi. The taxi fare rate within Bangkok and Greater Bangkok is charged by the meter plus a 50 baht airport surcharge. In addition, if taking the tollway, passengers are required to pay the tollway fee.
