Barely 48hrs after returning from Fukuoka, it was a short New Year's trip to Bangkok with some friends. This would be my last flight of 2015 and first of 2016.

Flight up was booked on Jetstar, and check in was DIY. However, I still need to have my documents verified at a counter as my return trip was booked on Scoot.

It started raining quite heavily soon after. A few kangaroos were parked at the gate.

Departure from Gate C18. Boarding was slightly delayed due to late arrival of aircraft from the earlier destination, due to weather around the airport.

Had a very long taxi to the runway due to many delayed departure traffic caused by the earlier thunderstorm.

Finally departed from Rwy02C.

BOB cabin service in progress. Did not get anything on this short flight. Crew were friendly and efficient.

Lavatory with the bare necessities, but clean.

Soon enough, descend into Bangkok started.

We were descending lower and lower… and suddenly, the engines rev up and we climbed up again. Woohoo! My first ever go-around on the last night of 2015!

According to the pilot, there was still traffic on the runway ahead and thus due to safety reasons, go-around was initiated.

Coming in to land again.

And a smooth and successful landing on Rwy01R.

Parked at a very convenient gate, which was just mere steps from immigration.

Immigration was fast as we were the only arrival flight being cleared, plus with no check-in bags, we were on the train to town within 15min of exiting the aircraft doors. And 30min later (with a change to the subway at Makassan), we were in the heart of Sukhumvit! That was faster than my 10km bus ride from Changi to home!

Stayed at Park Plaza Sukhumvit, which offered very good rates for the peak season, with rather huge and comfortable rooms. It was very convenient too, just steps from the MRT and BTS interchange at Sukhumvit/Asoke.

And there was a lot of eating during the trip!!
