Immigration and Customs

As was following other passengers, walked the ramp to immigration. I had no issues with immigration and was stamped 90 days tourist visa. My friend was asked to button up his shirt by the lady immigration officer.

After clearing immigration,, we collect bags from the carousal. Custom didn't stop us as we walked through the Green channel- nothing to declare.

Dropped out bags in the arrival area. After leaving the bags we took MRT to Little India.

Conclusion

Tiger Airways was airline of choice for this trip as the fare was cheap. Service was good, cabin crew was friendly and efficient. Food was buy on board as I didn't buy any can comment on that service. Entertainment was to look out of the window as their was none.

Bangkok airport was busy in the morning peak and immigration took long. security was quick. Tiger Airways used to operate from the Low Budget Terminal, services were minimal in this terminal. Transport for this terminal was either a Bus trip or taxi to reach other terminals.

Overall this trip was satisfactory.
