The free shuttle bus between Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang

If you are like me, after a long flight, you want to travel fast to your final destination. However, if that destination was not Bangkok, you might need to transfer from one Bangkok airport to the other. Bangkok has two main international airports: Suvarnabhumi airport (IATA airport code BKK) - the newest and largest one. It is pronounced su-wa-na-poom, which means The Golden Land, referring to a kingdom that was east of the Ganges and maybe in South-East Asia.

A Nice Catch (Prawning, Bishan Park, Singapore)

A friend of mine invited me to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon on the beaches, bars, clubs and restaurants of Sentosa Island. However, Singapore having a wet and humid climate, you better prepare for plan B, since it might start raining at any time. April is in the so-called inter-monsoon period, and thunderstorms, usually severe, occur in the early morning and afternoon. Due to the humidity, it also feels a lot hotter than it is.

Hop on a bus, Gus (Singapore - Johor Bahru)

Johor Bahru (more commonly known as JB) is the state capital of Johor and, from Singapore, is the gateway to neighbouring Malaysia when travelling by car or bus. It is a very popular destination amongst Singaporeans because most prices there – but not all, buyer beware – are about half of those in Singapore. For foreigners in Singapore the attraction is that you can go travel to JB in less than an hour and be back in no time.
