Things to know about Bangkok

Have you been to Bangkok? If not this post is for you. Even if you have been there, I am sure you didn’t know all of these. You can read this to know some more.
1) Though most Bangkok canals have been lost to road-building, boating is often considered as the most rewarding city experience maneuvering through the ‘Venice of the East’. Khlongs still thread through the Thonburi west bank and branch into the plantations of Nonthaburi.

5 Must see things in Singapore

5 Must see things in Singapore

Most places we visit have so many things to offer to us, it is quite difficult to identify a few places that would be of interest. On the other sometimes we have very little time on our hands that we would like to visit those few places quickly and prevent an embarrassment back home when someone asks what did you see or do.

In Singapore I recommend the following 5 places which is a must do / see according to me.

Going to USA

Eh! Not me ! 😛
Last week I had gone to see off a friend at the airport, who was bound for USA. When we talk about travelling to USA, the first thought that comes to our mind is the distance. The difference in time zone is secondary. Earlier, till a few years back there was no direct flight from India to the USA because of only this reason.

I remember once V had to go there urgently and the company had booked him on Singapore airlines. Not to mention, he had go the other way round, spending a few … Read the rest

Transiting at Dubai

I have been to western countries innumerable times. And the flights taken were mainly Lufthansa, British Airways, KLM, Swiss Air, Turkish Airlines etc. Almost every time the flight would halt at the base city (as the case maybe) before taking off again for the final destination. Frankfurt, Zurich, Bern, Amsterdam, Prague, Paris, Istanbul … you name it and the possibility is that I have changed flights or waited at the airports of these cities for onward journey.

Then comes Dubai, the city of Charms. While going to western countries one doesn’t necessarily stop here (unless the airlines belongs to … Read the rest

Have you ever been to Bangkok?

Have you ever been to Bangkok? Whatever I say about having visited Thailand several times, the fact remains that I have not been to Bangkok even once !

Not that I don’t want to go there, it’s a beautiful place and the capital of Thailand. There are several Mumbai Bangkok flights which can take me directly to the City of Angels. Somehow it was always missed out from my plan which most of the time is impromptu.

When my plane was about to collide!

These days I feel very tired and I am sleeping like there is no tomorrow.

Sleep reminds me of a small anecdote which I want to share with you all.

It had happened last year. I was flying to Thailand. The flight was in the evening and as usual I had my window seat. 🙂

Immediately after our airplane settled above the clouds, I could see the Sun setting. To my disappointment my window pane was very dirty from outside so I was unable to take any photo. But I did not want to let go of having a window … Read the rest

Airlines merger – What’s your take?

Do you ever think how things will improve or worsen if the airlines merger happens too often? Are there going to be more problems for us to travel ?

Well, after months of rumors and speculation, American Airlines and US Airways officially declared that the two carriers plan to merge into the country’s largest airline.
It is the latest of several merger announcements over the past few years in an airline industry that continues to shrink, at least in terms of number of airlines. After American Airlines and US Airways become a single carrier, to be named American, the U.S. … Read the rest
