Hello

I don`t know of Apree bungalows...The one I know of is Aree Bungalows situated at North Lamai.It appears to be a pretty basic resort so i`d be guessing there are no tea & coffee facilities within the room or beach towels (atleast if there are it wasn`t mentioned on the web page I read).

Bangkok Airways have the same in flight restrictions as other carriers regarding liquids,aerosols & gels..Here is a copy from there web site

Liquids, Aerosols and Gels: Rules

Bangkok Airways will implement restrictions on the carriage of liquids, aerosols and gels from 1 June 2007. The changes are in line with new guidelines set by the international Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). These measures will apply to flights departing Bangkok Airways, as well as those who are making transit/ transfer connections in Bangkok.

The restrictions are as follows

Liquids, gels and aerosols will only be allowed in cabin baggage if they are kept in containers with volumes of not more than 100 ml each.

These containers fit comfortably in a clear, re-sealable plastic bag. The total volume of the bag must not exceed 1 litre.

Each person is allowed to carry only one such plastic bag.

The bag must be removed from cabin baggage and presented to security personnel for visual examination.

Examples of liquids, aerosols and gels include

Liquids, all liquids including beverages, soups and syrups

gels, including hair and shower gels

pastes, including toothpastes

creams, lotions and oils

contents of aerosol cans, including sprays, shaving foam, deodorants

mascara

liquid-solid mixtures

any other item of similar consistency

Note: The above items are some common examples and are not exhaustive.

Medications and special dietary requirements, including baby formula

Liquids, Are permitted in cabin baggage.

Must be removed from cabin baggage and declared to security personnel at the checkpoint. These items may be subject to security checks.

Customers with prescription medicine are advised to bring along supporting documentation (e.g. ID cards, letters from doctors) as verification.

Duty-free purchases

These items must be packed in a transparent, sealed plastic bag. Receipts of the purchased duty free items must be attached or enclosed in the bag.

Inflight duty free purchases from previous sectors will be allowed onboard for transiting / transferring passengers if they are packed in transparent, sealed plastic bags with receipt attached.

Items, which are not permitted through security checkpoints due to the "Liquids, Aerosols and Gels" restrictions, will be disposed off at the gate

The solution to this is carry one packpack on & check the other one in

Thanks for your reply Jamie

We are talking about the same bungalows.

The page you sent with details of what we can take on the plane helped as what we would be taking with us will not be adding up to a litre, just the usual bathroom bits and pieces.

thanks

Maggie
