A lazy last day in Thailand. Late breakfast of pancakes, bacon and rosti potatoes. Tour of the villas for future travel plans. Packed up the bags and then some pool time with a late lunch of spring rolls and a hamburger. We really enjoyed our time at Amanpuri. The beginning of the low season is a good time to visit. We felt for the most part that we had the whole resort to ourselves. We were very impressed with the Amanpuri departure process. Nice ride to the airport in an air conditioned BMW and then we were met by an Amanpuri staff member who grabbed our bags, checked us in and led us to the immigration hall. The only problem is that our flight to Bangkok is delayed and our connection time to Seoul is eroding as I type this. Our bags are checked through to Vancouver so who knows when we’ll see them again. At least we are in the business class lounge in Phuket so things are comfortable pending the arrival of our plane from Bangkok.

Finally left Phuket after a two and a quarter hour delay. That pretty much used up all of our transit time in Bangkok. Arrived with an hour to spare before our flight left for Seoul. Very impressed with Thai Airlines. They were waiting for us at the gate and took us away in a private vehicle to get our boarding passes. This was a tremendous help. In fact, it was so good we ended up being the first passengers on the flight to Seoul! Asiana Airlines flight to Seoul was good. Only a five hour flight and we both slept pretty well. Just landed in Seoul and ready to go exploring. Once again, a fantastic airport. Very clean, spacious, modern and organized.
