Suvarnabhumi Airport

Bangkok's new airport opened a few weeks ago, at about the same time as the coup, in a burst of celebration and confusion. It's a beautiful building, the largest single terminal airport in the world, and my arrival couldn't have been smoother. Just remember to use the toilet on the plane before landing, because apparently the designers forgot to include enough bathrooms in the terminal. I haven't been downtown because we fly to Bhutan tomorrow morning, but apparently it takes about 80 minutes by cab and costs in the neighborhood of $12.

It feels great to be back in Asia, back traveling, a foreigner again.

Greetings from Canada

Your blog is a grat source of inspiration for me. Nice to see that motivation can be invested in the way you do!
Were about to leave for a 6 months bike trip from Bangkok to Honk Kong. Do you have an idea is it's possible to leave the new airport by bike or it's only big highways?

Keep going man!
