Today I took bus 29 from BKK Train Station to Don Muang Airport.
Red bus, no AC, but windows all open and nice breeze. Saw blue 29 buses with AC plying the same route.
Despite comments to the contrary, plenty of spare seats and ample room for bags.
This was in mid-morning. Total time- just over 1 hour. Departs every 10 minutes or so!
Kindly conductor showed me where to get off. 14 THB fare.
If I were doing it again i would take metro to Mo Chit and get the bus from there and maybe save a bit of time.
Until recently, it was relatively easy to get a Chinese visa. The situation has changed beginning about mid March and it is expected to remain unstable until well after the Olympics.
It is now impossible to get a 6 or 12 month multiple entry business visa.
It is now impossible to get entries longer than 30 days.
In many embassies and consulates it would appear impossible to get a double entry tourist visa.
It has been reported that beginning July, it may be difficult to impossible to get extensions.
From Hong Kong's South China Morning Post, April 6:
"Beijing has stopped issuing multiple-entry visas, risking major inconvenience to foreigners who travel to the mainland regularly, especially on business. Hong Kong travel agents say the ban will stay in place until after the Olympic Games.
+Travellers are now restricted to single- or double-entry visas valid for 30 days. ... more »

We are a family of 4 (14 and 12 year old daughters) who are planning to spend the month of January in NZ. We are flying into QTown on January 3 and renting a car. We plan to fly out of Auckland about a month later. Since it is the busy season, do we need to make reservations ahead of time, or should we be able to find places to stay along the way? We want to have flexibility so that we can linger in places we love and not have the pressure of a strict itinerary. We are happy staying in family dorm rooms, B&Bs, farm stays, apartments, etc. Our budget is $100-150 US/night. I'm just worried that we will have trouble finding places that can accommodate a family on short notice in January.
Thanks so much for your feedback!
Hi everyone i was hoping someone could explain to me the best of getting from Chang Mai to Chang Rai?
i am traveling to Chang Mai for 2 weeks and have decided after reading amazing things about Chang Rai to possibly spend a week in both.
i have read about a bus being the best way can someone confirm this and give me prices and travel journey times etc.
is there anything to do in-between the 2 that might interest me where i could stop off for a couple days?
Any help appreciated.
Interested in doing a Mekong Delta Cruise in January 2014. Has anyone recently used Mekong Eyes on a 2 or 3 day river cruise? Also should we prebook from home in Canada or just wait till we get to Vietnam? Any other tour company that anyone can recommend for a delta boat cruise? Thanks for any input.
