On my return from Sydney to Oslo, I did the same as on my outbound trip, I decided to stay at a cheap hotel while I was waiting for my next flight. Hate hanging out at the airport for several hours. The airport chairs get harder by the minute 🙁 Arriving into Bangkok late in the afternoon, but still with time to go for a walk, I was pretty bummed when the rain was hammering down. Not the most exciting area, but after being crammed up in an airplane for 8 hours or so, I just wanted to move my legs. This one also a basic hotel, and a short drive away from Suvarnabhumi airport, but better than Plai Garden, which I stayed at going south.
