Day 12: Back to Bangkok and then home.

Today we had a leisurely breakfast and got ready to head back to BKK. I paid the tab for the hotel, and the owner called us a cab to the airport.

The flight was uneventful and we arrived at the hotel in BKK in the middle afternoon. There is only one hotel in the immediate vicinity of the airport, the Novotel. While it was pretty expensive, at least for Thailand, at around $150 a night, I thought it was worth it since it is adjacent to the airport. It was a good choice.

This is an extremely nice hotel. The bathroom was amazing, and it also had a beautiful courtyard. It was worth every penny.

The bathroom, which, by the way, had an independently operated speaker for the TV you you didn't have to miss your program, or at least the audio portion.

Me chilling in the room.
The view of the courtyard from our window.We were really tired, and it really didn't seem to be worth the hassle of going back into town, so we decided to just hang out and rest for the rest of the day. We had dinner at the hotel and tried to psyche ourselves up for the flight back. Since we were going with the prevailing winds, the flight home is actually quite a bit faster than the flight there. It was not that bad, but we were certainly glad to get home.

I hope you have enjoyed this trip report. I will probably do at least one more Thailand post talking about some other things and giving overall impressions. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned to this blog when you hear be blabbing about our next trip, since I will almost certainly do this again. Right now the two big competitors for the next trip are Sorrento, Italy (which we have been to and both dearly love) and Spain. We have plenty of time to decide, so we are in no hurry.

If you are reading this and would like to see more of our photos, I have put them all online using Google's Picasa web folders. Just send me an email and I will send you the links to view them.
