Mum and Dad 2nd Visit to ThailandOn August 10 Mum and Dad arrived in Bangkok for their 2nd visit to Thailand. They have 2 weeks here, and plan to hang around Bangkok, travel to see Angkor Wat in Cambodia, and perhaps spend a few days in Kanchanaburi. They flew direct from Melbourne to Bangkok via Jetstar (after driving from Mt Gambier to Melbourne, with a stopover in Ballarat for 1 night). Coming from the Mount, you can choose to fly either via Adelaide or Melbourne. They were quoted about $AU2600 (return for both people) from a travel agent (either via Adelaide and Singapore, or via Adelaide and Sydney). But in the end they tried Jetstar for a total of $AU1600. The $AU1000 saved is spending money for the next two weeks. I was a little worried recommending Jetstar to them, but the with a comfort pack (blanket and video unit) they found it a pretty good flight, mainly because of the no stopovers. Maybe I will try Jetstar next time ... Photos from their stay in Thailand and Cambodia are in the gallery.
