Arriving at Airport

We had to catch a early morning flight to Singapore, we got everything organised and took taxi to airport around 5.45 am
We had limited baggage within limit, check-in was quick even though the service was poor. As one of my friends had purchased painting, we had to wait till he had sorted the fragile item
Immigration and Security
After completing check-in we headed to immigration which had a long queue. Security queue was long but quicker. We had no issues with either and soon were in the departure area.

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.
Bus to Terminal 2
We had a early morning flight departing from Terminal 2. We decided to leave our bags in luggage hold and head to city. We took shuttle bus to Terminal 2 from Budget Terminal.
Dropped out bags in the arrival area. After leaving the bags we took MRT to Little India.

Hope you enjoyed the report. Thanks for reading.
End of trip.
Bangkok - BKK
Singapore - SIN
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.
