are klm ok to travel with and also is bkk safe we are staying in the asia one night then trying somehow to get to Hua Hin any advice
"are klm ok to travel with" - Yes, they are a 4 star rated airline
"and also is bkk safe" - Yes, thousands visit every year but as ever apply common sense.
thanks Tom, we are a bit nervous going tomorrow with all the trouble,staying one night at the asia hotel then onto hua hin Wednesday,not sure how to get there
If you want to know about getting to Hua Hin please check the Hua Hin Forum
If you are overnighting in Bangkok you can use taxi or car service ( I would recommend car service, Oriental Escape are very good ) or you can tavel by express bus ( about THB 185 ) , or you can travel by train ( fares vary, the 0800 railcar express is a good train, fast and onboard service ) , but if a first time visito I would recommend Oriental Escape ( THB 2,850 ) there are cheaper car services but unless you are on a budget they are good, but do read the posts on the Hua Hin forum
No worries in Bangkok
KLM are a fine airline
There is nothing to be worried about in Bangkok currently
KLM are fine and Schippol is great ( I take it your first transfer is there). Don't worry
KLM is fine but we got so bored in Schippol. I much prefer flying from Terminal 3 at Heathrow as lots of good shops and restaurants to kill time. Main advantage for us flying from Scotland via AMS is that flight to BKK from AMS is almost an hour shorter than from LHR. We do it when it is cheaper than flying via LHR on Thai.
As Monica recommended Oriental Escapes for transfers to Hua Hin are excellent. We took train to Hua Hin (easy as we stayed in BK first and fancied trying the train) and private transfers with Oriental Escapes on return direct to the airport. Train is dirt cheap but car is faster unlike in UK where train is (generally) faster!
thanks we'll try the train,just a bit worried about how things are in bkk at the moment with the demonstrations.we are staying one night in the asia hotel
Just back from BKK and Hua Hin.Never saw any demonstrations or trouble.Even the area around Makkasan station was quiet.
E mail Ms Na for your transfer to your hotel in Hua Hin. her address is
Have used her service a few times now without incident. I'd recommend her.
