The Amazing Race Asia, Bangkok (1), Suvarnabhumi Airport

Here's begin the story!

we depart from Jakarta in the early morning at 16th of November 2011.
have a connected flight in KLIA Malaysia, we arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand, a very spacious airport with flight from all over the world and full by tourist although they have a flood issue at that time.

Suvarnabhumi (in Thai languange, ท่าอากาศยานสุวรรณภูมิ ) has means 'Lake of Gold' or 'Golden Land' and its name is given by the King.
and anyway, since Thailand has a monarchy and it is still exist until now, there are many of King and Queen pictures attached in various place in the town, include in the airport.

my first thought when i arrived here was, 'aah, this is where Nichkhun and the other member of Running Man (variety show in South Korea) had filmed the episode of Bangkok race'.
Nickhun is a singer in Korea but he comes from Thailand, and also works as tourist ambassador for Thailand.

Nickhun, my prince of Thailand

me and my friends come empty handed to Thailand, which means we didn't apply for a tour before we went there. But don't worry, since Thailand has a very well organized tourist management, you can have a choices of tour right in the airport.
what i like about this country tourist management is, they have a same price for one kind of tour in every tourist agency. so we didn't fell hesitated to choose or feel tricked by the tourist agency.

one tip for you, if you went by a group of people, ask them to give you a discount. just give them a big smile and ask them to lower the price of the tour. and also, if you pick more than one kind of tour, the usually cut the price.

and now, we are ready to discover Bangkok! :D
