Ready to fly to Phuket
As it was a pre - planned trip, we booked our tickets 4 months in advance. Since at that time direct flight to phuket was not available from Delhi, we booked a connecting flight with a layover at bangkok airport as now direct flights to phuket from delhi are operated by indigo and go air which are more suitable.
Commenced my journey to the beautiful island destination of phuket with two of my besties. Boarded spicejet from Delhi Airport to bangkok on the night of 12th Feb at 9:15 and after 4 hours of flying landed at Suvarnabhoomi International Airport, Bangkok.
As the Bangkok airport was fully packed with international tourists, because of Chinese New year, we stood in a long queue awaiting for our turn to immigration counter to get visa on arrival which at that time was free for many nationals including Indians (normally cost about 2000 bahts). After 3 hours, finally got the official permit on our passports to travel freely across Thailand.
After buying thai sim cards from airport itself, we were feeling hungry, and found a food mart at domestic side of airport and got some chicken sausages and sandwiches and then boarded our flight to Phuket.
