Thailand is a very popular tourist destination, and it’s been on my list for years. My friends and I had all expressed interest in going to Thailand at some point, but it can be hard to get people to commit. (I’ve heard committing is even harder for Californians – apparently we’re notoriously flaky 😉 ).
At the beginning of the year, I proposed going over Thanksgiving to my boyfriend and a couple friends. Max and my friends Barbara and Aimee were down for it, so I started monitoring @theflightdeal for airfare.
In February, we found some cheap airfare but it still took us a few days to commit. We had limited PTO so we only wanted to spend a week, but we wanted to visit islands and Bangkok, too.
Little did we know the experience we would have on China Eastern Airlines!
