Air Asia Thailand is making an irresistable offer: FREE FLIGHTS to BANGKOK. That's right, FREE! Jing Jing! Hey, that suits my budget perfectly!
Jump in now because you have to book before 1st June, and then travel any time from 7 June to 31 August.
Any fine print? yes, obviously. Such as you pay the normal taxes applicable, etc. Also it only applies to non-Thai citizens.
Why fly Air Asia? It just won the SkyTrax best low-cost carrier in the world for the second year running.
Why go to Bangkok, isn't that like Baghdad or Kabul or something at the moment? No. The Red Shirts have packed up and gone home and in the downtown area where they camped, life is back to its normal vibrant self. Meaning go-go-go, bright lights, big city.
For example, both Siam City Hotel and Grand Centara Hotel at CentralWorld (remember that building that was supposed to have been burned to the ground, in danger of collapse etc etc according to the media?) will both re-open for business on June 1. And they were right at the epicentre of the protests. CentralWorld shopping centre will re-open in 3 months. Virtually everywhere else outside of that Rajprasong Intersection -- yes folks just one intersection in a sprawling metropolis -- was and is unaffected.
Now, if you'll just excuse me, I'm going online to book some FREE tickets. See you in Bangkok, eh?
