I was offered a ride on a jet to the Land of Smiles, Bangkok. It was a dream come true as I boarded a jet that is very much equal to a business class seat in a regional airline, except that it has no frills and no flight attendants. I didn't need that, for which the airplane was enough to amaze me.
Arriving at Seletar airport, I went through a quick immigration and security before boarding a shuttle that took me to the jet. The ride went past similar jets that took the experience to a whole new level. From smallest of light aircraft to the larger brothers of business jets, it was a dream come true.
Upon reaching, I boarded the aircraft thru its flight stairs and sat at the back of the plane, just in front of the toilets. The ambiance was luxurious yet aged. Its leather seats were matured yet comfortable. Moreover, I could view the cockpit from my seat! #Amazeballs
Soon we're up in the skies cruising at an altitude of 35,000 feet to Don Mueang Airport, Bangkok, Thailand. After a mere 2 hours, we've reached the border of Thailand and landed shortly after. The jet then taxied to the parking area before its passengers de-board and the pilots begin the shutdown procedure. In a flash, I made it to Bangkok. Despite the exciting journey, I realize that the flight was extremely noisy and its toilets were operating in the form of in-flight portable toilets (just like those on the ground).
Immigration was a breeze and I zoomed out to the arrival hall, where I bid farewell and thanked the pilots for the great experience. From then, I was alone and experienced in the land of smiles.
Check back in a few days for my little adventures in Bangkok! PS. I would not be continuing the Cambodia series due to commitments at work. I'll try to do so when I'm free! Until then
