This is what you travel for, to tell stories…
First, everyone I am fine. Relax.
Remember how I liked Bangkok so much it would be become NoDebtWorldTravel.com’s Southeast Asia HQ…
Those plans are off.
Because protesters closed the airport in Bangkok to try to force out the current government!
Normally this would not bother me since I’m in Cambodia.
But the Bangkok airport is the hub for the entire region. I planned to fly from Siem Reap in Cambodia to Bangkok tomorrow, wait a couple of hours and then fly to Hong Kong, my first deviation from the original round the world travel plan.
Since my flights were scheduled for tomorrow, I went to the airport this morning and they didn’t have a lot of info. They said the airport MIGHT open at 2PM but who knows at this point. I’m going to check out a few travel agents locally and see what can be done. I just talked to two Canadians, who are going from Siem Reap to Vietnam to Taiwan to get back to Canada.
Not the greatest, but the roundabout way might have to be done.
