Another Bangkok meeting on 5th Feb?

by jrs1234 Online Now Jan 21, 2004 at 9:52 AM

Hi - It may be bad timing on my part, as there's a big Bangkok meeting on the 27th, but would anyone be on for another meeting on the 5th of Feb? The early evening (somewhere between 6 and 9pm) might suit me best as I'm hoping to see a few sights on that day too. I get in the previous evening, and I have the day free then and it would be great to meet some VTer's if they can make it - all welcome. Suggestions for a venue would be good, I'm staying on Sukhumvit Soi 5 again, but I can find my way around Bangkok pretty well... I haven't organised a VT meeting before, so I hope this works out! Thanks, Jeremy

    We're going to arrive in BKK at midnight on the 3rd(actually 5 after so it's the 4th) We are staying on Khao San Rd. It's been 12 years since I've been so can't really suggest a meeting place.Any one else? Rhonda and Scott

    Hi - Thanks to everyone who's replied! Does UCC cafe in Siam Center at 6pm sound like a good time / place? I'm open to better suggestions, but I'd like to go somewhere accessible by Skytrain if possible. I'm looking forward to it already! Cheers, Jeremy

    Hi Rhonda - From Khao San Road it's either a taxi ride or get the riverboat service down to Saphan Taksin pier where the Skytrain station is, and catch the train to Siam (Central station). The skytrain is directly connected to Siam Center by a walkway. You'll need to get a taxi back as the riverboat shuts down at around sunset (roughly 6.30pm, I think). Most taxi drivers will know Siam Center; if not try "MBK", which is the shopping mall just across the street, about 3 minutes walk away. It looks on my map as is Khao San is about 2 and a half miles from Siam Center, but I don't recommend you walk it as you can easily get lost, and many Bangkok streets are difficult to cross on foot (not to mention the heat). Cheers, Jeremy

    Dear Rhonda Another easy way from Khao San Road to Siam Center is by bus. You can take a bus No. 47 from Rachadamnoen Rd and drop at MBK or Ma boon krong center then cross the road to Siam Center. But the traffic may jam a lot when you take this route on rush hour (around 4.00pm-7.00pm). Hope to meet you there. Patt

    I'm off to Heathrow airport to catch my plane now (I'm a happy man!); I'll be in Bangkok tomorrow evening, doubtless pretty jetlagged and in need of plenty of sleep... I'll try and log into VT again before the meeting, though. Looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting - and anyone else who can make it! Should be lots of fun! See you all at UCC cafe in Siam Center at 6pm... Cheers, Jeremy
