Thailand November-December 2016

First time in my life the situation is such that all your family, for a month, to go from winter to summer. The possibility that is left is to find the tickets in the summer. Where is the summer? Where a lot. But so would the tickets are not expensive and accommodation are more expensive than Moscow. I looked and looked and settled on Thailand. The Aeroflot tickets for 25тр to Bangkok, in our time is not expensive. So we decided to rent an apartment in some resort in Thailand for a month and go to the warm sea.

What to choose? This question is always difficult, because we have 4 adults and the grandson of 2.5 years. I would like that everyone was comfortable. After plowing the Internet, correspondence with realtors, decided to stay in Hua hin. This is the East coast of the Malay Peninsula, 200 km from Bangkok. Especially in the other side, we have not been. Have booked an apartment in a condominium with security, swimming pool. Apartment with two bedrooms, a lounge and two bathrooms, well and the balcony still. To the sea 400 meters. The beach is sandy. Sun beds can be booked on the day from local merchants. Well, all the usual. To the city centre where all shopping and entertainment venues can be reached by bus. As it turned out, our location was pretty good. Some circumstances forced us to fly the two groups. Or rather, one large group flew direct Aeroflot to Bangkok and the second group of one me, was abandoned after a few days the curve of the flight of Iranian airlines with a stopover in Tehran to Bangkok.

Tickets purchased, apartment booked, the advance party taken to the airport. Safely and await my arrival. It's my time. I want to say that the Iranians have a good time of departure (mid-day) and arrival (in the morning in Bangkok), as well as quite short dock, four hours in Tehran. Made it safely to the airport by Aeroexpress. What I like it is that it is possible to calculate the travel time to the minute. Arrived a little in advance, with purpose to eat in the business lounge. It is not known when still have to eat. Suddenly the Iranians badly fed. We managed to jump into one to check. Then checked in and went through customs. The people at the airport is very small, and the customs were very boring and they are asked to enlighten my backpack. I showed them the landing to Tehran and for some reason very interested in the contents of my backpack.

And in it were: 2 loaf smoked sausage, 3 packs of pasta, a large packet of tea bags, well, every little thing. Where are You going? Again he asked rose, looking at my landing. I was full, so blessed. And I did not say that she would've stripped the eyes and what is her business where I'm going. I'm not bringing the paintings of Rembrandt or that it is not legitimate. I said, "In Tehran". And then the questions. And You one going? Without Luggage? How much cash? 100$? Other people's things there? Wanted to say that I myself am a stranger in this country, but I was full and lazy. Custom gave the go-ahead, and ahead was another round of negotiations with the border. He, too, was single and was at the other end of the hall and saw clearly my communication with customs, but certainly not heard .

I walked over, put his passport with the landing and waited for questions. I was sure they would. Was not mistaken. What is the purpose of Your visit to Tehran? Transplant? The final paragraph? Why that long peered into my face. Looked like I really matter, not shaved 7 days. When hung in the air the uncertainty, I regret that I was not shaved. Let go only when they heard the sound of a stamp in the passport. Relieved. Went into the hall, and there is a void. Some sort of virtual unreality. Where am I? Where are the people? Awww! No, you can't live, gotta go to a business hall, to remove strain. And stayed there until landing.

But no, the Board filed and everyone went on the plane. Download of was 30 percent. Free a lot of places. Many slept in the three seats. The distance between the seats is very comfortable. The seats themselves vazhnetskie, but at distances up to 6 hours is acceptable. The food is no frills, but quite tasty. However, to me after two business halls failed to finish.

In the setting sun we came in to land. At the finish of the flight was to say that Mahan Air is quite a decent airline. Stars in the sky is not enough, dust in the eyes is not allowed, but face in the dirt does not fall. Everything is worthy. After landing happened another plus to offset Mahan Air. All the transients from Bangkok was taken to the business lounge before boarding our flight. And that's 4 hours. Did not expect such a gift, and the business lounge was very good. Even hot, but the East. What I do not dare to try, and has not climbed anything except juices.

With shipping to Bangkok is a bit delayed. Could not send a flight to Guangzhou, someone was looking for. And gate we have one, aeroportik very small and outputs are not enough, and that waited for Guangzhou. Even private airlines are not always through the sleeve makes getting in and out. So we were taken by bus. From Bangkok we drove to the twin plane. One to one. Maybe they have in the Park of planes of the same brand of A-310. This delay in departure for 40 minutes, I was a bit strained. I bought tickets for the bus. He leaves in an hour and a half after landing in Bangkok. Not critical, but nervous. The queue for passport, to the passport still need to run. And the airport in Bangkok, you know, not small. Good that there's no Luggage. In General, fly and hope for the best. Landed with the same feeling that Mahan Air a normal company, even 10 minutes to catch up.

Quickly got off the plane, ran to the passport, little people, no questions asked and now I'm at the airport on the way out. Need a first floor, exit 8. There is still time, but at an accelerated pace through to the landing place on the bus. At the reception show your printed reservation to the bus to Hua hin. It is necessary to register and obtain a sticker for a t-shirt. Was told to wait. And here we go on the bus, seat number handwritten on the ticket. Seats are wide, laid out almost horizontally, condo. Everything is convenient, began to get out of the city, began to fill. Four hours passed quickly, a few times I woke up and checked my location with a map on the tablet. Suddenly the bus sat. But like everything came together and I fell asleep once again. And here I am in Hua hin at the bus station.

The problem is that I couldn't change money at the airport because of lack of time and now I have 0 baht. According to the map on the tablet to our Parking place and 4.5 km from Decided to go on foot and look for the exchanger. As luck would have it, the sky no clouds, the temperature is +28. Exchanger't see where it doesn't turn up anywhere else dollars are not taken. So half way. Strength ... Heat, a backpack of 10-12 kg, even baseball caps on the head there. Barely found a little shade and sat down. Taxi drivers near cool, asking where I was going. Offer dollars, are not taken. Neither the exchange, nor for travel expenses. Offer to take to Bank in the opposite direction to the city center and then drive to the destination. Thought and decided to agree, pre-bargaining. Got in a tuk tuk and took it with me to the Bank. The Bank in turn, sat for 10 minutes, came and went in a condo. And here came the problems. Where is the condo he had no idea. I show him the map, the street names written in Thai, seem to not understand anything. And so we went with map and geolocation enabled. Good ride 10 minutes and I was on the spot. And the life flowed slowly and lazily. Sea, beach, pool, evening forays into the city.
