I took Philippine Airlines to Bangkok:

After exiting immigration, my first order of business was to get a sim card – for Google Maps. I taped it up so it wouldn’t get lost when I went to Laos mid-week, because I wanted to go on using it for my last two days in Thailand. Thai mobile internet speed and coverage is pretty good the grand total of 3 days I was in Bangkok. The airport sim card kiosk sellers were excellent, they could speak both Mandarin and English. I got a prepaid data package for 10 days since I was returning to Bangkok after going to Luang Prabang on the evening of the seventh day after my arrival and staying for one and a half more days.

There’s a metro station in the same building as Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport that made it a cinch to get into the city after I landed, avoiding Bangkok’s infamous traffic jams.

I had dinner at a Thai place in a small strip mall like dining complex called Cocowalk Plaza in Ratchathewi:
