No such luck this time. Next to me was a woman who thought she was the one in the window seat, leaning over me, and gesturing across my face as she described the scenery to her husband. I gave her a dirty look, she apologized, but continued the behavior. After the short flight to Bangkok came the next hurdle of the day. I had to navigate my way to the main airport in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi International.
I flew an economy airline, Nok Air, to Phuket, but that meant utilizing Don Mueang Airport. In my online research of Phuket activities, I noticed a mention of a free shuttle between the two airports. I had booked an early flight out of Phuket so I would have plenty of time to investigate and then find a taxi if the shuttle myth was untrue.
I disembarked the plane, retrieved my checked bag, and followed the public transport signs downstairs. I didn't see any signs about a free shuttle, so I asked at the information desk. Sure enough, just outside was a desk and a completely empty, full size bus waiting. I asked if the bus really was free.
The guys at the desk, who were all wearing the same type of sunglasses for some reason, replied yes. All they needed to see was my boarding pass. Good thing I hadn't trashed it in the restroom. I boarded the bus, along with a young couple, but that was it. We took off with three passengers on the entire bus. I arrived at Suvarnabhumi with two hours to spare before check in for my flight even opened. I wanted to get past security to eat and rest, as I was still feeling under the weather.
