Just got done booking my flight from Seattle to Bangkok. I'm going to leave on the 12th and arrive late on the 13th. I'm looking for a place to stay on the nights of the 13th & 14th then plan on meeting up with all the rest of you arriving around the 15th.

So, I'm now officially in! As a veteran Latin American traveler I'm really looking forward to exploring SE Asia. I have to say that Thai food here in the US is my absolute favorite and I'm really jonesing for some authentic Thai food to compare it to.

So, I will definitely be there and I will be bringing 1 and possibly 2 friends with me.

Nata, good to hear you got your flights done. Looking forward to meeting you and your friends. Danny and I are arriving in BKK first (I think) on Jan9. We will spend a night or so in Bangkok and since we have 11 days before we need to be in PP we may take a side trip on our own and return to BKK to leave from there to PP. That's if I can talk Danny into it but I figger he's easy...... So we won't know until after we get there where we will be staying the night or so before heading to PP. We can stay in touch and plan a get together before the ride on this site or by email. We have a plan to not have a firm plan. :mrgreen:

Nata, just sent a note to Danny and Larry with a suggestion for New Siam Guest House II. I see you've already got you reservations there.

I did not opt for the hotel shuttle service (about 925 Baht) since Joe and I are going to have to meet up at the airport and who knows when that'll happen since we are on two different airlines. If they are both reasonably on-time we will have no problems. Besides, research shows a typical:

Suvarnabhumi Bangkok International Airport (BKK) - Central Bangkok: 200-400 baht, plus highway tolls of 70 baht
