This is my first trip report, so don't be to critical
End 2011 i decided to go back on vacation to Thailand (been there 2 times before), but wanted to do something else. So i decided to do Cambodia also. I booked al my flights between December 2011 and March 2012! After a lot of searching on the Internet I booked my roundtrip flight to Bangkok out of CDG with Thai Airways for only 615 Euro (from BRU it was at that time 1200 euro).
I decided to take the car to CDG, only 100 euro for 2 weeks on a long term parking 10 min from the Airport. They bring and pick you up at he Airport with a small 'VW van'. http://www.Aerpark.frAt the Airport
My flight departed out of Terminal 1, so i went 2,5 hours in front to the Check-in counter. I checked in online but there was no bag drop-off counter so i had to wait in line as al the other passengers
After check in went to the tax-free zone at the terminal to spend some time before the flight. But believe me Terminal 1 at CDG is terrible, i think 10 shops and 1 bar with sandwiches! And that for a International Terminal.....
At 10.00PM boarding was started ( flight was delayed for a half an hour, but i did know why).The flight
Or plane was offcourse one of the 777 from Jet Airways, Thai leased 5 of them from Jet.
My seat was 41K (window seat), the seat pitch is great. Verry comfortable for a 11 hour flight. The food was good, for dinner i had a pasta with seafood and for breakfast a ommelet!
Between the 2 dinners i spend my hours by seeing some movies (The Iron Lady and Mission Impossible 4) and because it was a night flight i sleped for 5 hours i think.Arrival
We arrived with a 25 min. delay. Passport control went smoothly, much better than the 2 times before! Now the lines where marked.
Took the skytrain to downtown Bangkok and vacation could started! AIR ASIA BKK-PHNDate:

After 1 day in Bangkok, i continued my vaction to CambodiaAt the Airport
I also checked-in online on this flight.
I went 1,5 hour in front to the Airport. After leaving my bags at the Drop-off counter of Air Asia i went true passport control and spent some time at the nice International Terminal of BKK. A lot of tax-free shops and dinner places (please let's forget CDG
For Spotting there are some opportunities because of the glass of the Terminal. But taking pictures is more difficult because of the black dots on the windows.The flight
This was my first flight with Air Asia so i wanted to know if those Lowcost carriers are the same as in Europe. And yes nothing special to say...
You can also order some food, buy a advanced seat, etc... I buyed a coffee.
The flight took around 1 hour, just enough time to fill in my visum papers and those one of a Greek passenger that did not understand a word of it... Arrival
The Passport Control in Phnom Penh went verry chaotic. Verry Rude and treated you like childeren. My first impession of Cambodia... After i picked up my bags i took a cab to my hotel in downtown Phnom Penh. And Realised that my first impression was wrong, the people there are so friendly.
After spending 1 week in Cambodia, visiting Phnom penh and Siem Reap (Angkor Wat) i went back to Thailand for a week of relaxing.BANGKOK AIRWAYS REP-BKKDate:
HS-PGCActual departure time:
09.45AMActual arrival Time:
10.50AMAt the Airport
I went to the Airport of Siem Reap 1,5 hour in front. Verry Small but nice Airport ( more to do than in CDG Terminal 1)
Check-in and passport contol went smootly. After that i spend some time at a coffee shop drinking a nice Cappucino.
Boarding was started 10 min before actual departure time. After a short walk to the plane i took a seat at 'seat' 4D.The Flight
This is my second flight with Bangkok Airways and my opinion has not changed. The overall sevice was perfect! Had a nice meal for a flight of only 50 minutes! And yes i love those ATR's.
Maybe one critical point, the price of a ticket from or to Siem Reap! They are the only airline flying BKK-REP so the price of a ticket is not cheap! I payed 250 euro fo a oneway ticket.
So i hope you liked reading it, this is only part one! The last and second part is; BKK-KBV, HKT-BKK and BKK-CDG
