End of Trip
Bangkok - BKK
Sydney - SYD
Thai Airways flight was the cheapest option I had during the time of the year. Service was good, food was adequate, time was convenient. Bangkok Airport is fine to transfer is transit time is short. The internet is hard to connect and there aren't many options to spend time. The duty free shops are pricey for the product on sale. I didn't exit the airport, can't compare the cost of living in Thailand.
Exit from Sydney Airport was quick as I used self check kiosk.
